Furnace Filters by Treat’s Heating & Cooling

How often you change your furnace filters will depend on a variety of factors such as what type of furnace you have, what filters you use and the environment inside your home.

Disposable filters are the most common used filter by consumers and are fairly inexpensive.  Many consumers are not aware of the reasons it is so important to change your furnace filter but think that they are okay to get it changed only when the maintenance is performed.  These filters should be changed every 1-2 months.

Washable filters are higher quality than the traditional disposable filters.  They utilize an electrostatic charge that helps gather the dirt and particles.  These filters are estimated to block 15-20 percent of particles in the air.  They should be cleaned once per month.

HEPA filters also known as “High Efficiency Particulate Air” are currently the top of the line when it comes to filters.  These filters are used in hospitals and research centers in order to maintain the highest air quality. 

Overall, changing/cleaning your filters will improve your air quality.  Your furnace will run smoothly and keep your energy bill lower.
