Regular air filter replacement is what most homeowners think of when it comes to routine air conditioning maintenance. Failing to change out your air filters can result in clogged coils and affect your overall indoor air quality; it can also cause your air conditioner to develop problems and break down much sooner than expected.

Are you replacing your filter enough? Different households will have different indoor comfort and air quality needs.
The type of filter you use will also affect the frequency of replacement:
Do you think about the type of air filter you’re using? There are two main options when it comes to AC filters: fiberglass and pleated.
Many homeowners opt for fiberglass filters. These are the most popular choice due to their low price—if, on sale, you can get them for just a dollar or two apiece. Fiberglass filters have the advantage of providing greater airflow. However, since they need to be replaced on a monthly basis, they can be less cost-effective in the long run.
If you are looking for a cost-effective alternative to fiberglass filters, you may want to consider pleated filters. These are the types that look like “accordions.”
Due to their design, pleated filters offer a greater surface area to trap particles and debris. They can also catch a wider variety of allergens: pet dander, mold spores, dust mites, and other small particles that would normally slip past fiberglass filters.
You also won’t need to replace your filter as frequently with a pleated type—every three months is enough to maintain a good level of indoor air quality and cooling efficiency.
Pleated filters are a great option if you have pets, or if you have household members who suffer from frequent allergies or respiratory issues.
Our experts at Bell Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical can help you assess your indoor air quality needs and recommend the best solution for your home.
