HVAC System Air Filters in Livonia, Michigan

Changing your HVAC system air filter in your Livonia home is necessary for comfort and easy breathing! At Ehlers Heating & Air Conditioning, we are the experts in keeping stagnant air out of your home. Air filters accomplish this and are among the most important parts of your heating and air conditioning system. Taking care of the air filter on your HVAC unit also helps protect the system and keep it running at maximum efficiency.

Air filters trap dust, particles, pet fur, and more contaminants that impact air quality. Having a clogged filter could negatively impact the HVAC systems’ functioning and air you and your family are breathing in.

Air Filter Replacement in Livonia

At Ehlers Heating & Air Conditioning, we recommend homeowners change the filter at least once a month during the seasons the HVAC system is used the most, such as in the winter and summer.

Checking your HVAC system every two weeks is helpful to take care of your unit, especially in the winter. Actively checking will allow you to change the filter before the air quality significantly decreases. When your HVAC system is trying to keep your Livonia home comfortable, the filter is put to the test. There is more air flowing through the filter, meaning there are more particulates it is catching.

That’s where the experts at Ehlers Heating & Air Conditioning can help—we’ve been replacing air filters for years. Contact our team to install a new air filter to boost your HVAC efficiency in no time!

Types of Air Filters for Your HVAC System

A recent study by the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has shown that dirty air filters can reduce HVAC efficiencies by 10 percent or more.

Choosing the right HVAC filter for your home is important for keeping the air as clean as possible! You need to be aware of the different HVAC filters available to you as well as their Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV), a measure of the effectiveness of the filter. Inefficient HVAC filters have a lower MERV rating while more efficient ones boast a higher MERV rating. The different options include:

  • Fiberglass filter
  • Polyester filter
  • Washable filter
  • High-efficiency filter

The ideal air filter is one that has the least effect on airflow, but removes the greatest number of air contaminants. Contact us for assistance choosing which air filter is right for your Livonia area home.

How Often Should You Change Your HVAC System’s Air Filter?

When it comes to how often you should change your air filter, follow these guidelines for more information on when to change them:

  • Every 30 days: Standard 1- to 3-inch air filters generally start to collect dust and other debris after 30 days of use. If you have more than one pet and allergies, plan to check the filter monthly. You may not have to change your air filter but you should at least check to see how dirty it is. There is no harm in replacing your air filter more frequently.
  • Every 60 days: If you have dogs or cats it is recommended to change your filter every 60 days. The extra hair, dirt, and pet dander make the filter clog up faster.
  • Every 90 days: Most filters are rated to last up to 90 days. If you and your family live in a home without pets and allergies, your filter may last for the full 90 days.
  • Every 6 to 12 months: In unusual situations, such as single-occupant or vacation homes, you don’t need to change the air filter as often. However, be sure to check the filter every few months to be safe!
