Furnace filters need to be replaced often to ensure the efficiency of your system.

We always recommend that you check your owners manual to determine your system requirements, but a good rule of thumb is monthly. The reasons for changing your filter so often is that it allows for good air flow through the system and eliminates pollutants and allergens in the air. By creating good air flow, your system doesn’t have to work as hard, and the motor will require less maintenance.

Filter costs vary greatly, the cost of the filter is not nearly as important as the fit and cleanliness of the filter. It is important to follow your manufactures recommendations to ensure warranty coverage. In addition to monthly filter changes many manufacturers require servicing your system every 6 months by a qualified HVAC Contractor. Ultimately the cost of filters is far less than an expensive service call and possibly a new motor.

Before hiring any contractor always check that they are licensed and insured for the type of work they are going to perform. It is also a good idea to check with your local BBB to see the contractors satisfaction rating. Word of mouth referrals are always a great idea. Friends or family members who have had great a experience and speak highly of a contractor, even if there were problems, can help you in your decision making process. How well the contractor responded and took care of the problem is very important to know.

Keep all records of filter changes and services, in case you need them for warranty issues or if you plan on selling your home as proof of upkeep.
