So make a smart decision make sure to check your filter every month, especially if the filter looks dirty, change it. A dirty filter will slow down the air flow and make the system work harder to keep you warm or cool – wasting energy. A clean filter will also prevent dust and dirt from building up in the system – leading to expensive maintenance and/ or early system failure.

Remember at a minimum, change the filter every 3 months.
