If your not sure when or how often to change your furnace or air conditioner filter; we are here to help.
All furnace filters have a recommended life span. There are a few elements that come into play when determining how often to change your furnace filters and air conditioner filters. Such as how many people and pets live in your home, does anyone in the home have allergies and/or does anyone smoke in the home. These are the most common things in your home that your filter captures and keeps from being recirculated through the air. Some other indoor air contaminants are mold spores and the normal dust that builds up indoors. You can also look at your filter, if it's before the recommended change and it's super dirty, change it.
You can go with a washable filter that should be vacuumed/washed off every 1-3 months. Since it's not a disposable we recommend doing this every 1-3 months to ensure the best performance from your filter and your system. Our best selling washable filter is the Naturalaire Electrostatic Washable Air Filter that come in a variety of sizes.
Your other option is disposable filters which can be a pleated filter or a basic fiberglass filter. Our best selling pleated filter is the Naturalaire Merv 8 Filter. These furnace filters have a life span of 3 months and come as a pack of 12 so you always have a new furnace filter on hand. They are excellent at collecting the unwanted particles from the air and protecting your system. Our best selling basic filter is the Flanders Precisionaire EZ Flow II Furnace Filter. These filters have a life span of 1 month and their main benefit is to protect the system but aren't as good as the pleated filter at collecting the unwanted particles from the air. If you just don't have the room for a case of 12 filters to be stored you can sign up for a service plan and we will ship you a new filter in the time increment that you choose.
Breathing clean air is not the only benefit of changing your filter. It also helps your system to achieve peak performance to prevent maintenance issues. So visit RememberTheFilter.com today.
