The best solution for your indoor air quality depends on the type of air quality problem you’re experiencing. If you’re experiencing issues with moisture in your air and humidifier or dehumidifier will greatly improve your indoor air quality. If your issue is due to indoor pollution, an advanced filter or UV air purifier may be your best bet. Your air quality specialist will help you choose the best air quality solution for your home.
How often you need to change your filters will depend largely upon what kind of air filter you have. For standard 1” filters, it’s best to change them every 30-90 days. If you have 5” filters, those can go six months to a year without needing to be changed.
It’s extremely important that you don’t forget to change your filters regularly. It’s as important as seasonal maintenance to keep your HVAC system in good condition. Filters support good air flow and operational efficiency, plus they help maintain your home’s indoor air quality. If you tend to forget to change your filters, set up a recurring calendar reminder to ensure this important home maintenance task gets done!
Keeping your indoor air quality at an optimal level can not only help keep your home’s air healthy, it can also help to preserve the wooden features in your home.
