Why should I change my HVAC Filter?

Here is a perfect example of a homeowner not replacing their HVAC filter often enough and installing the filter incorrectly.

During peak heating and cooling months your system is running more often and therefore you need to change your filter more often. If you have an active home with children and pets we recommend changing your 1 and 2 inch filters monthly. If you have a less active home you can get away with changing your filter every other month as needed (regular visual inspections are a good idea).
