When to Change Your Air Filter

One of the oldest questions in [ac_and_heating] conversation involves when to change your air filter. With your air conditioner now running full blast, it’s important to have your air conditioner filter operating in excellent shape.

A reliable air filter, in addition to preventative maintenance for your HVAC system, will clean the air that you and your family breathe, removing dust and allergens and redistributing them. The filter is usually made of paper fiber or metal, specially designed to catch and collect the tiniest of duct particles.

Some experts say to change the filter once a month, while others say filters can go three months without changing. Quite honestly, it depends on your home and its environment. If you have pets or are allergic to pollen or other outdoor allergens, it may be best to change the filter monthly.
