At Lea Heating & Air Conditioning, we often get asked how often an air filter should be replaced. Because the conditions in your home are unique, it’s impossible to predict. We recommend checking it often and if the filter looks dirty, it needs to be changed. Neglected air filters quickly become clogged, restrict airflow and negatively impact heating and cooling efficiency, capacity, reliability and longevity. For assistance choosing the right filter for your needs, proper installation and any questions at all, simply give us a call at 847-305-2800.847-305-2800
Professional Air Filter Installations
Air filters are available in a wide range of prices, sizes, and styles. Better quality options capture more contaminants, smaller particles and require less frequent changes. Consider the investment into high-efficiency electrostatic filters that can trap bacteria, dander, smoke particles, and odors if:
- You tend to forget the upkeep of your furnace or air conditioner
- Have pets
- Anyone in the household suffers from allergies or asthma
- Anyone in the household smokes
