Tips for Selecting and Replacing Your Air Filters

When it comes to maintaining your central air conditioning system, replacing your air filters on a regular basis is one of the most cost effective things that you can do. A clean air filter improves your air conditioning efficiency and improves your system’s performance at cooling your home. Consider these tips for selecting and replacing your air conditioner’s filter.


There are many different styles and types of air filters. Before purchasing a new filter, make sure you know the correct size needed in your air conditioner, as filters come in many different dimensions. Once you have the correct measurements, you will need to consider what style of filter will best suit your needs. There are flat, pleated and electrostatic filters that all do the job with varying degrees of efficiency and effectiveness. Flat filters are the least expensive while the highest efficiency HEPA filters will cost more.

Replacing Air Filters

If you or someone who lives in your home suffers from respiratory conditions such as allergies, asthma or emphysema, replacing the air filter on a monthly basis helps keep the air in your home as clean and fresh as possible. At minimum, you should replace the air filter every three to six months or more often if it becomes filled with dirt and dust. Our service technicians will show you how to insert the new filter or will replace it for you during your spring and fall HVAC tune-up.
