When it comes to air conditioners, one of the biggest difference makers is the air filter. Although it may seem like a very insignificant part of your HVAC unit your air filter actually plays a big role in how well your unit cools and in the overall efficiency of your air conditioner. The fact is a dirty filter can limit your Portland OR air conditioning from reaching its full capacity and that can cost you more money.

So you need to remember to change your filter regularly. Every unit is unique but most filters need to be changed when they are too dirty, in order to function efficiently. There are several factors that play a role in how often you need to change your filter, such as:

  • What kind of AC unit you have
  • Whether or not you have pets in your home
  • How many people live in your home and how often they are present
  • The amount of air pollution or construction near your home
  • Your home’s overall air quality

Most manufacturers recommend changing your filter every 30-60 days, but again, the frequency will depend on those factors mentioned above.
