How Often Should You Change Your Air Filter for Your AC

Posted on: May 18, 2012

One of the most important and often overlooked aspects of maintaining your AC system in Moorpark, Ventura, the San Fernando Valley and Santa Clarita is the regular replacement of the air filter in your home.

The reasons that you want to change the air filter on a regular basis are many including keeping your system running smoothly by helping to avoid undue exertion on the system. This helps save money on utility bills while helping to increase the longevity of the AC system.

So, How Often Should the Air Filter Be Changed?

The answer depends on several factors such as the quality of the air where you live, whether you have dogs, cats or other pets, or smoke indoors to name a few criteria.

Higher pollution locales will require more frequent changes in the filters as they will become dirtier faster.

In Southern California including areas such as Moorpark, Ventura, the San Fernando Valley and Santa Clarita, it is a good idea to check the air filter every thirty to forty five days and then change it if it appears discolored or dirty.

By all means, regular use of the home heating and cooling system requires regular replacement of the air filter. Many homeowners only need to change their air filter twice a year. The only way to know for sure is for a professional HVAC technician to inspect the air filters and your home AC system.
