You wouldn’t leave your water filter unchanged, so why wouldn’t you change your air filter? Indoor air pollution is among the top five environmental health risks and is best prevented by controlling or eliminating any sources of pollutants.
What are filters for?
People often purchase air cleaners to increase their indoor air quality. Research has shown that indoor air can be up to two to five times more polluted than outdoor air, due to the particles that are not able to properly ventilate indoors.
The main advantage of having an HVAC air filter as opposed to a portable filter is the ability for the HVAC filter to clean all the air that passes through your entire home through the ventilation system.
Your HVAC filter provides a barrier between the immediate air intake and the moving components of your central air system. Particles drawn into your central air system are caught by the air filter before passing through the ducts, preventing damage to your HVAC system and cleaning the air before it is cycled back into your home.
How often do filters need to be changed?
Most HVAC central air filters should be changed every 3 months. At Coleman Heating, we use Honeywell filters that need replacement every 3-12 months, depending on the model. Changing your air filter periodically boosts your energy efficiency by keeping your HVAC system clean and extending its service life. It also allows cleaner air into your home, bringing you ultimate comfort and peace of mind.
