Where is my filter?

  • That all depends upon your equipment and ductwork design. Some examples:
    • In the indoor unit and should be clearly marked.
    • A filter media system located near the indoor unit but inside the ductwork.
    • A central return grill that has a filter behind the door, these are usually located in a central location of the home.

When should I change my filter?

  • The most generally suggested answer is:
    • 1” - 2” Blue hog hair filters – Monthly
    • 1” – 2” Pleated filters – Bi-monthly
    • 3” – 5” Pleated 8 Merv or higher - Annually
