Do I Need To Replace My Air Filter?

Homeowners with a central HVAC system should regularly change their air filters. Replacing your air filter provides many benefits, including more comfortable home air and monthly energy bill savings. Signs that it’s time to replace your air filter include:

  • Headaches
  • Sinus pressure
  • Respiratory issues
  • Allergy symptoms
  • Asthma symptoms
  • Recurrent sickness
  • Exhaustion

How Does a Dirty Air Filter Affect My Energy Bill?

Air filters remove impurities from your incoming heat and air, like pet dander, dust, dirt, and debris. When your air filter clogs up, your HVAC system struggles to maintain your climate control preferences. The increased work stresses your system and causes it to consume more energy, raising your utility bill.

What To Know When Replacing Your Air Filter

Because every HVAC model has different features, air filters don’t come in one standard size. Installing the wrong air filter lowers your unit’s efficiency and may cause continued problems with indoor air quality. When you need air filter replacement in El Cajon, CA, the Maximum Comfort Heating & Air Conditioning experts can provide you with the right filter and professionally exchange it to ensure the best fit.

Besides knowing the size of your air filter, you should consider the difference between a pleated and a non-pleated air filter. Non-pleated air filters provide standard filtration while keeping your home’s air clean. Pleated air filters cost more but filter out smaller particles, including:

  • Dust mites
  • Dirt and dust
  • Mold spores
  • Pet dander
  • Bacteria

Note that pleated air filters may have a wider base than standard air filters. Call Maximum Comfort Heating & Air Conditioning if you plan to switch from standard to pleated air filters.

How Often Should I Change My Air Filter?

For the best-quality air and the highest energy conservation with your HVAC unit, we recommend an air filter change every 30 to 60 days. Depending on your lifestyle, you may need your air filter replaced sooner than 30 days. Home situations that can affect air filter replacements include:

  • Owning or caring for multiple pets
  • Cooking greasy or smoky foods
  • Illnesses due to airborne contagions
  • Performing construction in your home
