Heating, ventilating, and keeping the home cool is a big job, and HVAC systems need to be kept up in order to ensure that they are in working order for as long as possible. That means periodically changing the filters in your HVAC system. Commonly, however, people are unsure of how often they should change their filters. There is no clear answer for everyone, but multiple answers depending on your situation. For those who are wondering, the answers about your HVAC system are as follows.
If you are lucky enough to live in an environment that often does the heating and cooling for you, wherein you don’t need to use your system every day, then you can expect your HVAC filters to last up to a year. Not everyone has that luxury, however, and there are many people who have their systems running on a near constant basis. For those people, the filters need to be changed after a couple of weeks to a month. For everyone in between, it can depend on your use. Monitor how much you use or system in a given season, and if you are using it more than a couple hours a day, you may want to look into replacing the filters.
The filters for HVAC systems are simple to forget about, but undeniably important. The answer of what to do with them is varied, but it’s safe to say that most people can go a season or more without changing them. For others, however, it is necessary to keep up with your HVAC system and ensure that your filters are changed as needed.
