Written by Your Filter Connection Do you own an air cleaner? Air cleaners are wonderful products designed to improve the air quality in your home. But they can’t get the job done without a filter, the device inside the unit that captures airborne particles before they go into your lungs. Although every air cleaner comes with its own air filters, you will need to replace it many times throughout the course of its life. Why? There are many reasons why you might need a new air cleaner filter. Here are just of the reasons: It’s Visibly Dirty If the air filter is black or extremely dirty, it’s time to replace it with a new one. A dirty air filter will not capture harmful particles such as dust, pollen, smoke, and bacteria from circulating back into the air. Your filter might get visibly dirty faster if you cook often, smoke in the home, or live in an especially dusty or dirty environment, such as on a farm or in the desert. It’s That Time Again Even if your filter is not visibly dirty, it’s important to regularly change the filter at the right time. How often do you need to replace the filter? Whether it is Filtrete filter or Honeywell filter, we recommend changing it every three months. When Your Unit Says So Many of today’s advanced air cleaners come with filter reminders. This helpful feature might be in the form of a light that comes on when it’s time to replace the filter. Your Filter Connection is an online retailer of filters for air conditioning units, air cleaners, and humidifiers. They carry name brand filters including Filtrete air filter replacements.
