How Often Should I Change My Air Filters?

How often should I change my air filters
March 24, 2017

We’re all guilty of forgetting to changes the filters in our home, but neglecting to do so for an extended period of time can lead to increased allergens and a decrease in your HVAC unit’s performance. The frequency with which you change your filters depends on several factors, including the type of filter you use, how many pets are in your home, and how many people live in your home.

As a general rule, standard air filters should be changed every 30 to 60 days. Check out the chart below to find the specific time to change your filters, and don’t forget to set a reminder in your phone so that you don’t forget!

Scenario Optimal Time Span
Standard Rule Every 30 to 60 Days
If You’re Allergy Prone Every 20 to 40 Days

If You Have One Pet

Every 60 Days
If You Have More Than One Pet Every 30 Days
If You Have No Pets and No Allergies Every 90 to 120 Days
