One common question homeowners have about the AC system of their home is how often they must replace their air conditioner’s air filter. Your ACs air filter has the job of removing most particulates from the air that may impact air quality indoors, as well as the efficiency of the whole system.

 

Factors Affecting How Often to Replace Your Air Conditioner Filter

 

Considering that the air filter has such a critical job, it is important to keep the air filter clean. However, how often do you actually have to change your air filter in the HVAC system? Learn about 4 factors which impact how often to replace the air filter in your air conditioner.

 

How Frequently the HVAC System is Used

 

How often to change your air filters depends upon how frequently you use your home. For a rarely used vacation home, you might get away with changing the filters one time per year. But, for a regular suburban house, you likely want to change the filters at least every ninety days. However, this time frame changes based on the extra circumstances below. As a rule of thumb, it’s a great idea to replace the air filter in the HVAC system each month.

 

How Many Pets and People Are in Your House?

 

The number of pets and people in your house will impact the air quality in your home. One person who has no pets will have to replace the air filters less frequently than a household that has multiple pets and kids.

 

What Kind of Air Filter There Is

 

One factor to consider is associated with the efficiency of the air filter. More effective air filters are made to trap more particles and last a longer time. It’s smart to pay close attention to the filter manufacturer’s suggestions concerning the replacement and make adjustments based on your usage, as well as how many occupants are inside the house.

 

Do You Have Any Allergies?

 

In some areas, you might have to change the air filters more consistently because of the presence of dust, mold, moisture, and additional allergens. If you happen to have allergies and are sensitive to contaminants inside the air, it is a great idea to change the air filters every 30 to 45 days. It’ll help you and your visitors and fellow home dwellers rest and breathe easy within the days to come. Cleaner air will mean better health for everybody at the end of a day.

 

How Often to Change the Filter

 

  • Households that have several pets might have to change their filter as often as every twenty days.
  • Single pet households ought to change the filter every sixty days.
  • Family households without any pets ought to change the filter at least every ninety days.
  • Single person households without any pets might replace their air filters as little as every four to six months.
  • Unoccupied vacation house, depending upon how often you utilize the system, might change the air filter every six to twelve months.

We've been using Classic Air Conditioning & Heating Services for the past five years to include Installation of new units (flawless by the way), bi-annual check-ups that are scheduled and carried out without a second thought on my part, and in emergencies (backed up drain in the bathroom with a response time in under 24 hours to troubleshoot the problem). Their technicians are master's at their craft, personable, and cut to the chase on his service calls. I never feel like I'm being given the run around or a sales pitch with this company. Today, Mitchell Wesch went above and beyond walking us through what was happening and provided a multitude of options and expected timelines for future repairs. Once again, a great example of exemplary customer service. He was able to troubleshoot the problem with zero delay. We're ready for the Texas summer, and are already looking forward to the next scheduled service call. Thank you Classic Services for keeping our home healthy and happy.

Theresa did an amazing job! She informed me about everything she was doing and took extra pictures so I could have them for my record. She was quick but still answered all my questions. She definitely saved the day when my condensor froze over on the coldest day of the year, leaving my family in the cold. She was out at my house within the hour and had everything fixed in minutes.
