Furnace filters play a crucial role in improving indoor air quality by capturing and preventing the circulation of airborne pollutants. They also help protect your furnace from dust and debris, ensuring efficient operation.

The frequency of changing your furnace filter depends on factors like the type of filter, the number of occupants, pets, and the air quality in your area. In general, it’s recommended to replace the filter every 1 to 3 months.

Failing to change the furnace filter regularly can lead to reduced airflow, decreased heating efficiency, strain on the furnace motor, and a decline in indoor air quality. It may also increase the risk of costly repairs and affect the longevity of your HVAC system.

Consider factors such as the filter’s MERV rating (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value), which indicates its efficiency in capturing particles, and the manufacturer’s recommendations for your specific furnace model.

Some furnace filters are washable and reusable, while others are designed for one-time use. Check the filter’s specifications to determine if it can be cleaned and reused.
