How to Change Your Filter in Your HVAC by HelpfulHannah

HelpfulHannah's Spring  Tip for your Home

Spring is here and it is time to do some important home maintenance items. Let's face it we usually wait until the last minute like everyone else does. To me, one of the most important items, when it gets warm and uncomfortable, is the air conditioning unit. Especially when you have allergies and pollen is blowing around in the air 

 

 

It is time to change the filters go to the store and have extra ones on hand. They should be changed when needed. Perhaps every three to four months. It may also be a good idea to have your HVAC unit serviced before the hot weather begins. It is best to do now.  Waiting until the last minute may put you at the bottom of the list. You may be without an HVAC in hot weather because you did not do spring maintenance. Call your HVAC technician for an appointment and spring into warm Summer temperatures. Sometimes It makes me nervous when I change them and I feel better when I watch a video right before I change the filter

I change mine out a couple of times a year. Clean air is great and the furnace and AC don't need to work as hard

So many people wait to turn on their HVAC and find out their Air is not blowing cool and find they must wait a week when it is HOT. Best to check early.

YouTube can be very useful when you need to learn how to do something not too complicated.  It's great that people share their skills this way.

Hi Hannah- I'm so glad that you posted this. Years ago when we visiting Larry's sister it was so hot out and her A/C didn't seem to be working. Turns out she hadn't changed the filters in years.

Many people wait until the last minute and wonder why the HVAC people say cannot come out for 2 weeks. I always forget which way the arrows point.  What a shame not to change your filters a very expensive bad habit indeed.  Bet you weren't happy with that mistake

Good morning again, Hannah. We change our air filters every single month. And our HVAC is professinally serviced twice a year... no surprise that we have no issues with our heating and cooling! But a great reminder. I run into homeowners all the time who have no clue that filters need replacing.

Being an independent woman these are things one needs to learn and thanks to YouTube and this video it makes me more secure each time I chance my filter which is on my to-do list 

 

Hello Myrl 

Glad for the reminder it is on my list also. My new HVAC has a washable one so it is new for me
