How Often Should You Change Your HVAC Filter?
Changing your air filter regularly ensures the air quality in your home will remain as clean as possible, short of installing an indoor air quality product. If you don’t change your filter, it will become full and will not have the ability to trap new particles and pollutants. A full filter will not be able to prevent additional dirt and debris from circulating through your home, causing your family to breathe in more dust and allergens on a daily basis. Additionally, an unchanged, full air filter causes the motor on your HVAC system to work harder, and it will subsequently become less efficient and cost you more money on your operating costs.
It is a general recommendation that you should change your air filter in your home every 30 days when using less expensive fiberglass filters. Premium pleated filters can last as long as 6 months, but these typical guidelines assume standard usage and don’t take into account the size and type of filter.
As a general rule, you’ll want to replace pleated air filters in your home every 90 days. The longer the filter is in place, the more dirt, dust, and allergens are trapped clogging the filter and decreasing their efficiency. You may need to replace your filter more often if you have pets.
