How Often Should You Change Your HVAC Air Filter? It Depends.

If you haven’t changed your home’s air filters lately, this 1-minute video will demonstrate just how much energy your HVAC unit is wasting.  A clogged air filter operates with a lot less efficiency.

Air filters should be changed at least once per quarter. In certain circumstances, however, more frequent replacements are warranted.

  • Homes with shedding pets
  • Homes under construction
  • Brand-new homes with dust in the air
  • Homeowners with asthma or allergies

Also, when you replace your filters, don’t reach for the $0.99 cheap ones.  Plainly, they don’t work.  Instead, spend $15 to get a filter that works.  Or, buy in bulk to save 15% from Amazon.com or a local hardware store.
