HVAC Frequently Asked Questions Answered on Friday

Friday, November 11th, 2016

We thought we’d start a standard blog that comes up every Friday (something like Taco Tuesday’s but not as delicious!)  HVAC Frequently Asked Questions on Friday

Today’s frequently asked question is:  How often should I change my HVAC filter?

This answer varies according to certain conditions:

Your HVAC system can't breathe thru a clogged filter.

Your HVAC system can’t breathe thru a clogged filter.

  1. You have a air quality filter (usually a 4″ or 5″ width filter) should be changed once a year.
  2. You have a standard 1″ filter, no pets, no remodeling being done and it’s not high pollen season – once every 3 months.  If you are on our Club, this means you change it 3 months after we’ve done your twice annual service!
  3. You have a standard 1″ filter with pets, have remodeling going on or it’s high pollen season – it can be as often as once a month!  Sometimes, more often especially when you are having your floors redone!  The sawdust can really clog up your filter! The pollen can do the same as the sawdust.  We really recommend you checking the filter at least once a month during these circumstances!

We hope this answered this frequently asked question!  We’ll have another frequently asked question for you next week!
