Homeowner’s know that one of the major responsibilities of maintaining the wellbeing of their air conditioning unit is to replace the air filter in a timely manner. The recommended time to change your filter is every 1 to 3 months. Many HVAC systems are connected to smart thermostats that may allow you to set a reminder of when to replace your filter, or sense when the filter needs replacing based on air flow.
If you have ever noticed that your filter is extremely dirty every time you change it out, try replacing the filter more often. For example, if you were replacing it every 3 months, try every 2 months, or if you were doing it every other month, then replace the filter once a month.
However, in some homes, the filter may continue to be clogged up before its schedule time for replacement. So, why does your HVAC filter get dirty so quickly? The purpose of an air filter is to remove the dirt, dust, dander, pet hair, and other debris from your air as it is collected through your home and passed through the system for cooling. There are a number of causes that can make the air in your home dirtier than average, causing your filter to get clogged ahead of schedule.
Also, if you find that your filter is still clogging up ahead of schedule and you’ve tried all you can or are willing to do (not everyone wants to switch to “auto” or sacrifice a few degrees for the sake of their filter) then you may want to consider switching to reusable filters. They are initially more expensive, but over the long run, you’ll be saving yourself some money if you have to change your disposable filter 1 to 2 times a month.
