If you share your living space with pets, it is advisable to change your air filter every two months. In the case of households with more than one pet, it is recommended to replace it every 20 to 45 days. It's crucial to keep your air conditioner in good condition by following these maintenance tips.
Invest in a high-quality air purifier
Air purifiers remove particulates from the air, which range from bacteria to viruses but also include pet dander and fur. For people sensitive to or allergic to some particles in low-quality air like smoke, it also helps to reduce the occurrence of allergic symptoms and makes it easier to breathe.
Air purifiers equipped with HEPA filters are particularly effective as they can remove particles as small as 0.3 microns, which is significantly smaller than the usual dander floating around your home. To maximize their efficiency, it is recommended to place air purifiers as close as possible to the source of the particles like your pets.
Change your HVAC Air Filter
Do you want to breathe easily? These filters are crucial in maintaining clean and pollutant-free air in our homes by eliminating dust, dander, and other harmful particles. Not only does this contribute to better respiratory health, but it also promotes the longevity of your HVAC system by preventing damage caused by the accumulation of airborne particulates.
Investing in a high-quality air purifier and regularly replacing your air filter can prolong your air conditioner's lifespan.
