When Should You Replace Your Air Filters

Air filters are a part of every HVAC system. They are put in place to filter out pollen, allergens, dust, and debris. However, they can only last so long. Over time, they get full of the same things that they are designed to filter out. When they get clogged, your HVAC system must work harder than before to cool and heat your property. That is why they must be replaced regularly, keeping your air conditioning and heating units clear of contaminants and allowing them to efficiently control the temperature of your property. So, how often should you replace the air filters of your HVAC system? The frequency at which you should get your air filters replaced depends on the type of filter, the size of your property, and the type of property you have. Fiberglass air filters are affordable but need to be changed frequently, they should be changed every 30 days. Pleated air filters are better quality and typically last about 3 months. These are the two most common residential air filters. When it comes to commercial properties, the air filters that are used are higher quality than most residential air filters which allows them to run at peak efficiency for 3 months. We recommend that you replace your commercial air filters quarterly.
