Air Filters: Get Your New Ones Ready, Because The Cooling Season Requires That You Change Them Often

Home > HVAC Blog > Air Filters

Now that spring is well underway, make sure you check your HVAC system's air filter before putting your air conditioner or heat pump into use for the cooling season. Any time you launch into a new cooling or heating season, you should make sure you have a clean air filter ready to go, since this will help ensure both improved indoor air quality and smooth HVAC system operation throughout the upcoming high-use season.

The benefits of regularly changing air filters include:

  • Cleaner air so fewer health problems are caused due to dirty air.
  • A clean air filter will allow air to flow smoothly through your HVAC system, preventing overloading of essential components that can lead to premature wear and breakdowns.
  • Similarly, when the air is flowing through your system as intended, your equipment uses less energy than if it was having to struggle to meet your temperature demands because of poor air flow.
  • Dirty air filters result in dirty ducts, which will need more attention from the homeowner.
  • Newer filters, if they're high enough efficiency, do a better job catching allergens, pollen, mold spores and other hazardous particles, so they improve indoor air quality.
  • Changing air filters is a low-cost method to extend the life and efficiency of your HVAC system.

There are many different kinds of air filters, ranging from basic models primarily designed to protect your HVAC equipment rather than clean indoor air, to high-efficiency models that provide benefits both to your system components and indoor air. Your HVAC professional should be able to help advise you on the best filter for your particular cooling and heating equipment.

Air filters should be replaced or cleaned as often as monthly, though some can go three months before needing attention. But when the season changes and you have not replaced the air filters, you definitely need to do so.
