How Often Do I Need To Change My Air Filters?

The filters in your home, and how clean they are, can determine air quality, system efficiency, and so much more. Seeing how important clean filters are, how often do you need to change them? While there are a variety of factors going into the answer, there are common suggestions from HVAC experts.

Filter Changing Recommendations From The Professionals

Without any other deciding factors, most would recommend getting your filters changed every three months. If you have pets, this time drops to two months. If a member of your household has allergies, or any other type of sensitivity, this will drop again to every six weeks. Those living in the home aren’t the only deciding factors. The size of your home, its location, and how often you use the HVAC systems can play a role. A small cottage in the country won’t require as many changes in comparison to a large home in the city.
