Air Quality

One of the most important parts of correct HVAC maintenance is changing your air filters. Your air filter keeps your system running efficiently and is also a big part of increasing and maintaining your indoor air quality. The EPA has released that the air inside your home can be 2-5 times more polluted than the air in highly industrialized cities.

Filter Replacement

The simple way to tell you out how often to change your filter would be, whenever it’s dirty. Of course, we don’t want you to have to inspect your filter’s cleanliness every day, so a general rule is every 1-2 months for the greatest results.

The frequency you have to replace your filter is determined by a host of factors. If you have pets in your house or a lot of guests and occupants, you’ll need to replace your filter more regularly. Follow your filter provider’s advice on how often to change your filter as the advice depends on a number of factors in your home.

Built up grime and system neglect are two of the main causes of system failure. This system damage is totally avoidable with annual maintenance, including regularly swapping out your air filters.
