Air Filters are a vital part of your home’s forced air HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system. The air filters job is to remove bacteria and harmful particles: as well as, pollutants like dust; which cleanses the air that passes through the filter. Clean air filters help to maintain the indoor air quality of your home and all the people who reside there healthier.
Clean air filters help keep your HVAC system running efficiently- clogged filters make the system work harder and can raise your energy bills.
How often should I change my air filter?
It is recommended that you change the air filter in your home at least every 3 months. If you have pets in your home or family members with allergies, you may need to change the filter every 1-2 months. Need help determining a schedule to fit your needs? Give us a call– we’re here for you!
