Your home’s air filter is a small yet very important part of your HVAC system. This component is generally inexpensive to maintain, filters much of the particulates in your home’s air, and has a direct impact on your air conditioner’s operating efficiency. When air filters are maintained regularly, they can keep the air you breathe a little cleaner and your wallet a little greener.

What Is an Air Filter?
An Indoor Air Filter is an important part of your HVAC operating system. If you don’t have any other air cleaning equipment installed, the air filter is your first and last line of defense against particulates, pollution, and germs in your home’s air.
What Makes Air Filters Important?
Air filters are important because 100% of your home’s air travels through them and then into your lungs. Installing and maintaining quality air filters can help keep you breathe more comfortably and your air conditioner system run more efficiently.
How Often Should an Air Filter Be Changed?
A good rule of thumb is to change your home’s air filter(s) once every three months. This rule can vary based on the amount of people living in your home, how often your air conditioner runs, the quality of your air filter, and how frequently your air conditioner system is used. If you are in doubt, it’s a good idea to turn off your air conditioner and remove/inspect your air filter by holding it near a light source. If it is difficult for light to pass through the filter, chances are it’s time to be replaced.
