When it comes to your HVAC system, one of the easiest and most effective things that you can do is regularly change your air filters. Your air filters keep your home’s air clean and help to keep your HVAC system running smoothly. Every home has at least one air return vent, but many homes have more than one. Air return vents also come in a number of sizes, so you’ll need to measure yours first before buying new filters.

You should change your air filters every 1-3 months, and the frequency depends on a few factors. For example, if someone in your home suffers from allergies, asthma, or any other breathing-related issues, you should change your air filters every month. Or, if you have pets in your home, you should also change your filters once a month. However, if you live in a pet-free home, and no one suffers from health issues, you can change your air filters every 2-3 months instead.

There are a number of styles of air filters, such as allergen control, which you can choose to meet your home’s unique needs. 

Each time that you change your air filter, you should also dust off the air return vent. This will only take an extra minute or two and it can help to keep your home’s air cleaner as well as your air return vent.

If you don’t regularly change your air filters, your air ducts can get dirty, and your HVAC system will have to work harder to heat and cool your home. In addition, your home’s air quality will worsen. That’s why it’s important to regularly change your air filters.
