The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends changing your air filters every three months. But the frequency varies depending on your environment.
If you have children in the house, if you or any members of your household suffer from allergies or chemical sensitivities. If you have pets around, then it’s recommended that you change your filters more often.
What kind of air filter do you need?
Most homeowners are familiar with the standard fiberglass air filters. However, most HVAC dealers no longer sell. Because they tend to break down quickly and allow dirt back into the house.
Instead, we recommend using high-efficiency air filters (or HEPA filters), which are made of more durable material.
The benefits of using high-efficiency air filters include:
- Increased airflow through the system, which can improve heating and cooling performance
- Reduced wear and tear on the heating and cooling equipment
- Reduced fire hazards by filtering particles that can build up in your system
What are the signs you need to replace your air filter?
- The filter is dirty and needs to be replaced
- The airflow through the system has decreased
- The furnace or air conditioner is running more often than usual
- You can see dirt or dust coming out of the vents
When you notice any of these signs, it is recommended that you check your air filters. If they are dirty, replace them and see if the problem goes away.
If your system is running more often than usual or not working at all. Then you should contact a service technician to inspect it immediately.

How do you know when your filter needs to be replaced?
To determine whether your air filter needs to be replaced, take a close look at it after you have turned off the furnace or air conditioner. You should also check your system’s airflow by holding a tissue up to the vent and feeling for air blowing out. If you can’t feel any airflow, then that usually means that the filter is clogged up.
If the filter is covered in dirt or dust, then it needs to be replaced immediately. Filters don’t get “full” like a regular garbage bag; they just get dirty and require replacing more often than usual.
