When & Why You Should Change Your Air Filter?

Proper Maintenance Will Help You Avoid Costly Air Conditioning Repairs

At Centrum Solutions, we offer a comprehensive range of air conditioning services across the Greater Puget Sound and beyond.

We understand that even the most diligent homeowners might not prioritize HVAC air filters—and we don’t blame them! When functioning correctly, filters go unnoticed. However, neglecting regular replacements can lead to underperformance or premature breakdowns, even in top-tier systems.

Why is Replacing Your Air Filter So Important?

Regularly changing your air filter significantly enhances your HVAC system’s performance, helps you avoid expensive air conditioning repairs, and improves your overall comfort. Here are two key reasons why filter replacement is crucial:

Ensure Better HVAC System Performance

Over time, filters collect dirt and debris. A clogged filter restricts airflow, forcing your system to work harder and longer to maintain desired temperatures. This not only increases energy consumption but also places constant strain on the system, potentially leading to ongoing issues and system breakdowns.

Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

A clogged filter fails to trap dust, dirt, pollen, and other pollutants, which can severely affect your health, especially if household members suffer from asthma or allergies. Additionally, accumulated dirt on furniture can foster mold, bacteria, or dust mites.

How Often Should You Replace Your Filters?

Air filters should be replaced every 1-3 months. The replacement frequency depends on the type of filter, presence of pets or allergies, and environmental factors such as heavy usage or dusty conditions. If unsure, check the filter between scheduled replacements to see if it’s clogged with dust.

What Types of Air Filters Are Available?

The type of air filter impacts performance and replacement frequency. Fiberglass filters are the most common and affordable, requiring monthly replacements. Pleated filters, included in our replacement program, trap smaller particles, offer higher airflow resistance, and need replacement every three months.
