      HVAC Maintenance: The Importance of Changing HVAC Filters

      Maintenance is one of the most tedious yet indispensable parts of being a homeowner. It involves tasks no one is allowed to dodge. Without performing regular maintenance work, at some point you’re going to find that your home has become faulty, which could lead to more problems and expenses. As such, it’s better to just fulfill your household responsibilities in the first place rather than face the consequences in the future.

      HVAC Maintenance: The Importance of Changing HVAC Filters

      Your HVAC system, for example, should be cleaned regularly, without fail. Air conditioning maintenance is crucial because cooling systems are often overworked, especially during the warmer months. To avoid any HVAC-related problems, here is a guide to help you do one of the most basic yet most important maintenance tasks around: replacing HVAC filters.

      What Are the Types of Filters?

      Let’s start by learning some of the different types of filters. Knowing what you’re dealing with makes all the difference.

      The most common type of HVAC filter is disposable, and is made of paper or a similar material. It’s usually shaped in screens, fins or cells, and is available to buy in multi-packs.

      Certain models of HVAC require a specific type of filter, which is why it’s important to ensure you’re getting the appropriate one for your unit. Choosing the wrong one could lead to underutilization and other issues.

      When you hire an air conditioning installation contractor, you can ask where the filter should placed, how to place it properly and the method of removing it. You can also read product labels or search for instructions on the internet.

      Tip: Don’t replace the filter without prior knowledge.

      How Often Should You Change the Filter?

      You can call on your HVAC maintenance provider once a year. However, when the unit is used more often, doing so twice a year is the better move. Moreover, you should always check on its performance. If you think that the system is not working as it should be, a maintenance check wouldn’t hurt.

      Your HVAC filter, on the other hand, should be replaced every three months. More frequent cleaning and replacements are recommended, however, if the system is in constant use or there are pets in the home.
