How often should you change your air filters?

This is a very common question among homeowners! While air filters may seem like an aspect of your home that is easily forgotten, it's very important to maintain air filter quality and replace them in a timely manner.

It is recommended that you change out your filter monthly, but every home is going to be different.

The replacement schedule is going to vary depending on several factors:

  • How tight your home is - also known as how air tight your structure is in terms of air leaks
  • How often and how long the system is running
  • The amount of cooking you do in your home
  • Types of activities you do in your home
  • Location of return vents
  • Animals in the home

We would recommend checking the filter weekly at first to get a better idea of what your replacement timing should be. If it would help, we also advise to add a calendar reminder or alarm to alert you when it's time to change your air filters. Life gets busy and time moves quickly. Without the proper maintenance, this could end up costing you repair bills, lowering the efficiency of your system, and shortening the life of your equipment.
