Why Should You Change Your Air Filters?
Posted on March 20th, 2018 by Blue Mountain
The air in your home is circulated through your HVAC every two hours. And while the filters will catch and remove a large percentage of dust and debris, they can’t work if they’re clogged and dirty.
Here are a few simple tips to help you remember to change your air filters.
Set A Reminder
You want to change your filters every one to two months, so set up a recurring reminder for yourself — whether that means the old-school pen and paper or a recurring reminder on your phone.
Upgrade Your Thermostat
If saving money is on the top of your to-do list, you should upgrade to a programmable thermostat. They offer a number of benefits, including automatic reminders and alerts to change your air filter.
Schedule Check-Ups On Other Important Dates
Lining up yearly HVAC checkups with memorable dates, like the first day of spring, can help you remember that it’s time for maintenance.
Write Reminders On The Filters
On the edge of each filter, write down the date the filter needs to be changed. Every time you pass by, you’ll be reminded of this important task.
