To have clean indoor air you need to change your air filters on a regular basis. It can be hard to remember when to do that, though. Here are some easy ways to remember so you can be assured of healthy indoor air all year long.
4 Easy Ways To Remember To Change Your Air Filters
1. Upgrade Your Thermostat
The newest programmable thermostats include integrated technology that keeps track of when you need to change your air filters. For example, the display on your programmable thermostat will flash or beep with a notification that the airflow is being restricted.
2. Set a Phone Reminder
You can also set a reminder for yourself on your phone calendar. That way, you’ll get a notification popup when it’s time to change the filter. The only downside to this method is that you have to input the reminder each time you change the filter so you’ll be notified for the next time.
3. Store Replacement Filters
If you go ahead and buy a year’s worth or six month’s worth of replacement filters, this can serve as a reminder. Store them near the place where you’ll be using them. This method is also useful because you won’t have to work so hard to figure out what size filters you need every time one needs to be replaced.
4. Align Filter Change With Another Calendar Date
If you change your filter every 1st of the month, or so that it matches up with another memorable date, you’ll start to get into the habit of changing it without a reminder. Consider changing the filter every time you have an HVAC inspection or on certain holidays.
