Top 3 Things To Know About Air Ducts & Furnace Filters

Brook Maier

We all have these questions since dealing with this sort of stuff isn't a daily thing. Here are a few things you should know about when to change your furnace filter, air duct cleaning, and how often each should be done.

  1. How Often Should I Change The Furnace Filter?
    - Rule of thumb, they should for sure be checked and probably changed, every 3 months. 
    - Different factors may affect how often they need to be changed, depending on how many pets you have, time of year and thickness of your filter.
  2. How Often Should I Get The Air Ducts Cleaned?
    - This is most common in winter, as people start using their furnace. It is recommended that you get them cleaned every 3-5 years.
  3. Why Should I Get My Air Ducts Cleaned?
    - There is substantial visible mold growth inside hard surface (e.g., sheet metal) ducts or on other components of your heating and cooling system. 
    - Ducts are or had been infested with rodents or insects. 
    - Ducts are clogged with dust and debris and/or particles are actually released into the home from your supply registers. Notice any sneezing o stuffiness when you turn them on? It's time.
    - It is common for new homeowners to do this, not knowing when previous owners had done it and just to be safe.
