Replacing Your Air Filters: Why Spring Is the Perfect Time

You may have guessed that regular HVAC maintenance is a key element of homeownership. Beyond keeping your home the perfect temperature all year round, your air conditioning and heating systems also play an important role in your home’s overall air quality. Changing your filters at the right time helps your system run more efficiently and keeps your family breathing easier.

The Two Most Common Types of HVAC Filters for Your Home

Not all HVAC filters are built the same way, and it’s important for any savvy homeowner to know the differences between them. Using the wrong type of filter can be detrimental by allowing too much or too little airflow. The right filter for you depends on your HVAC unit and your air quality needs:

Fiberglass Filters

Fiberglass filters are designed to catch large debris like lint and dust. They need to be changed at least once a month and are disposable. While they’re the most common and affordable, they’re not recommended for people with allergies.

Polyester/Pleated Filters

Slightly more expensive than their fiberglass counterparts, polyester pleated filters absorb more particles from the air and last longer. They only need to be replaced every 3 months or so, and can trap allergens, pollen, pet dander, even bacteria – ideal for keeping allergic reactions at bay.

When to Change Your Home’s Air Filters

We won’t overcomplicate this one for you. The absolute best time to change your air filters is when they are dirty! The time it takes to get to that point depends on your particular HVAC unit, along with other factors like the size of your home, how many pets you have, and how much rain Lake Erie decides to bless us with that season.

Spring is the ideal time to change your air filters. After a long hard winter, your HVAC filters have likely pulled in more than their fair share of dust and debris. What better way to help your AC kick into high gear for the summer than with a fresh air filter? While you’re at it, spring is also the perfect time to schedule HVAC maintenance here in the greater Akron, Ohio area.
