Importance of Air Filters

Service Experts reports: Sometimes I'm asked what is the most important thing that homeowner's can do to protect their air conditioning and heating system between their regular Maintenance Tune-ups. It's a simple question with a simple answer; remember to change the heating and air conditioning air filter. Changing furnace and return air filters is crucial to the proper performance of your HVAC system, not to mention your home's air quality. Did you know indoor air pollution is one of the top five environmental health risks?* I know it's the last thing on your mind, but this is really important stuff. Changing the air filters is not all that hard for most homeowners, but there are usually two obstacles to actually getting it done:
  1. Knowing just how often to change your furnace or air conditioner filter.
  2. Remembering to change air filters when needed.
1. When To Change Your Air FiltersSimple, when they're dirty. Ok, now here's how to... Wait, not enough info? Ok, well... you can read the rest of this section for the details, or just skip over it if you're good to go.

Ready to dive in? Good, I like that. How often to change your air filters can depend on several factors:
  • the type of air filter you are using
  • the overall air quality of your home
  • pets, pets, pets..
  • occupancy of the home, and
  • the level of air pollution and construction around the home
  • ...and did I mention pets? Oh yes, pets.
We recommend you change your filter every 30 days.

It's simple. We will post a reminder to Facebook at the beginning of every month!

  1. Furnace filters which are of good quality helps reduce irritants from allergens which may be trapped inside your office or home from the air. They improve the quality of the air too inside a home or business by cleaning debris, dust and any other particles as well as stopping them from going straight into your furnace.
