How Often Should You Change Your Home Air Filter?
Are you past due changing your home air filter?
During the winter and summer months, your home’s heating and cooling system is constantly moving air through the vents to either heat or cool your home. One often overlooked component of your heating & cooling system is the filter.
Your air filter removes particles from the air that you and your family breathes. The type of filter you have will determine the size of particles that are removed.
Common filtered particles include dust, lint, pollen, pet dander, smoke, and microscopic allergens.
Besides scheduling seasonal system tune-ups with Meyer & Depew, changing your air filter on a regular basis is one of the most important things you can do as a homeowner
to keep your system running in top shape. A clogged filter will not only cause the air quality in your home to decrease, but also place additional strain on your equipment.
This added strain could cause your equipment to fail earlier than it normally would.
How often should I change my filter?
Experts recommend changing your filter every 30-60 days, but this number could change based on a few factors:
- Number of family members
- Type of filter being used
- Air pollution around the home
The easiest way to know when you should change your filter is to simply check it and see if it looks dirty.
