Breathe easy knowing your home's air is clean and fresh with these easy steps!
Here's your friendly guide to changing your HVAC air filter, an important home maintenance task.
💨 TURN OFF YOUR HVAC SYSTEM
Find your thermostat and simply switch it off. This step is crucial to prevent any damage to your system while changing the filter.
Remember, every HVAC system is unique, so the switch may be located in a different place.
💨 LOCATING & CHECKING YOUR AIR FILTER
Look for the slot right next to your blower - that's where your air filter is usually located.
Gently pull out the filter and check the size written on the side. If it isn't listed, don't worry - just measure the slot yourself.
💨 REPLACING YOUR AIR FILTER
Get a new filter from your local hardware store. They range in price from $20-$30 depending on the type you choose.
Write the date on your new filter so you'll know when to replace it next. We suggest changing it every two to three months, more frequently if you have pets.
Before putting the filter back, make sure that your arrow for airflow is pointing in the right direction. It should go from the intake into the blower.
Carefully slide the new filter back into place and switch your system back on.
By following these simple steps, you can improve the air quality of your home and extend the life of your HVAC system.
