Your HVAC system runs nearly constantly to keep you and your loved ones warm or cool. So, keeping it in your mind, how often should you change your system’s air filter? There’s no strict guideline on when to change your air filter. Essentially, it should be changed when it gets dirty or clogged.
Some homeowners don’t often think about the poor indoor air quality, there are lots of dust and other contaminants present in the indoor air, even more than the outside air. These unwanted particles can cause respiratory illness or can even damage your furnace system. Pull the air filter out now and check whether it is black, dark or dingy? If so, it needs to be changed immediately.
