Common Customer Questions on the Maintenance of Your Home’s Air Filters

Why Do I Need To Change My Air Filters Regularly?
This is one of the questions homeowners ask us most! Air filters do a lot of work for your HVAC system. They filter out all kinds of gross things in the air, such as pollen and dust that would otherwise circulate through your home. They are also your defender against larger objects (such as insulation) being pulled into the system that could cause damage or present a fire risk. But the most important reason for changing your air filter? Clogged air filters are the number one cause of HVAC system failure.

When Should I Change My Air Filter?
We recommend that you change your air filter every month or two, especially if you have pets or are surrounded by a high-pollen area. Air filters are generally pretty inexpensive, and way easier to do than replacing an HVAC unit. If you have questions about your Air Conditioning Unit or any problems with your filters, Reliable Air & Heat are always happy to help our neighbours meet their home comfort goals!
