Changing the air filter in your home air conditioner can be an important step in home maintenance, and determining how often the change should occur is an important element of this maintenance routine. How often you change your filter is dependent on a variety of factors, including the type of filter you are using, the overall air quality of your home, and the number of family members and pets living in your home. As a good rule of thumb, most standard air filters should be changed every thirty to sixty days. But, keep in mind, if you or a family member suffers from allergies or if you have a pet that sheds frequently, you may need to change your filter more regularly.
