Changing your air filters is one of the easiest and most effective ways you can maintain your home’s HVAC system. Here are some reasons why it’s so important to change your air filters regularly:

  • Dirty, dusty air filters make it harder for air to get into your home, which means these filters are putting a strain on your HVAC system and that your home won’t heat and cool as efficiently. 
  • Dirty filters can also lower your home’s air quality. This is especially important if anyone in your home suffers from allergies or has asthma or any other breathing conditions.
  • Dirty air filters can also become a breeding ground for mold or bacteria, which then circulates for your home. Yuck!

So, now that you see why it’s so important to change your air filter, you might be wondering how often you should change them. The answer varies. On average, you should change your air filter every 90 days. However, if you have pets, you should change your air filters every 60 days for one pet, and every 30 days if you have more than one pet living in your home. If you have allergies or any breathing conditions, you’ll want to change your air filters every 30-60 days.
