How Often Should I Change My Air Filter?
One of the most beneficial things you can do to improve the efficiency and lifetime of your HVAC unit is make sure you change the air filters regularly. This will help keep the HVAC system working properly and keep your energy bills low. There are some general recommendations on how often you should change your air filters. At 2nd Wind we recommend you change your air filters every 60-90 days depending on the size of your home, how many residents live there, and if you have pets or not.
If you have pets in your home this will effect how often you need to change your air filters. Pets like cats and dogs will shed fur and bring more dust into your home meaning you will have to change your air filters more frequently, we recommend every 30-45 days. Unfortunately most home owners do not change their air filters regularly which can lead to bad air quality and maintenance problems.
