How often should I change my air conditioning filter?
That is a great question! Home owners or renters should look at where your filters are in your house and inspect them monthly. If your filter is dirty then it should be changed. There are many determining factors on how often your filters can become dirty. Do you have pets? Does the house not smell as fresh as it used to? Has there been any construction around your neighborhood? How many people live in your home? All of these items contribute to your air quality in your home.
You can purchase filters from most stores like Walmart, Home Depot, or Lowes Home Improvement. But, keep in mind that you get what you pay for so if you go for a less expensive option it will not last as long as say a middle tier option. If you change your filters the United States Department of Energy reports you can improve the efficiency of your HVAC equipment by 5% to 15%. So by changing your filter every month, if it needs changing, then you will prolong the life of your system.
If you need help please do not hesitate to give us at CBS Mechanical Services a call and we will schedule a technician to inspect your system and give you some recommendations. We also provide a maintenance program where we will come to your home and maintain your equipment for you. There are many options that are available.
