Frequency of filter replacement will depend on your particular needs. Some households require more frequent AC filter replacement (once a month), while others do well with replacement every three months. If you have smokers or pets, we recommend replacing the filter every two months. If members of your household have allergies, asthma, or chronic respiratory conditions, it’s a good idea to replace the AC filter once a month. For all other households, filter replacement every three months is ideal.
The type of AC filter used is also factored into how often it should be replaced. If you are using fiberglass filters, they should be replaced at least once a month. While they offer good airflow, they are not as efficient when it comes to trapping smaller particles.
The best value in AC filters are pleated filters. They are able to capture smaller particles that would normally go through fiberglass filters and can be replaced every three months.
