Your home HVAC system keeps your air cool and livable, but it also serves another important function: it circulates air through your home. As the air circulates, it passes through an air filter, which catches minute particulates – dust, dander, and other contaminants – and removes them from the air, improving your indoor air quality.
The filters installed in air conditioners and furnaces have one minor maintenance task associated with them, however: You should change the air filter in these systems regularly, generally once a month or once every other month. Here’s why:
Fortunately, air filters are inexpensive and easy to install, and a wide range of air filters exist to meet your air quality needs.
