Air Filter Replacement in Livonia

At Ehlers Heating & Air Conditioning, we recommend homeowners change the filter at least once a month during the months when their HVAC systems are in full use (i.e. summer and winter). If you can remember, it’s a great habit to check it every two weeks or so. If it’s dirty—even if you did just change it a few weeks ago—change it again. When your HVAC system is trying to keep your Livonia home comfortable, the filter is really 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 can help—we’ve been replacing air filters for years. Choose our team to install a new air filter and you will 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 filters can reduce HVAC efficiencies by 10 percent or more. How do you choose the right HVAC filter? 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 Air Filter?

Follow these guidelines to pinpoint exactly how often you should change the air filters in your Livonia area home:

  • 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/or 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. Most dogs and cats shed, so whether you’re allergic to pet dander or not, plan to replace your HVAC air filter every 60 days. The extra dirt and hair 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 an “average” home with no pets and no allergies, you can get away with stretching your filter to its maximum lifetime.
  • 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. Plan to check it every few months, but you probably only need to change the air filter once or twice a year.
