Frequency of AC Filter Replacement
Every household has their own unique needs when it comes to indoor comfort and air quality. As a result, the frequency of AC filter replacement will depend on your particular situation.
If you have household members who smoke, or if you have pets, we recommend AC filter replacement every two months.
If you have household members suffering from asthma, allergies, or other respiratory conditions, replacing your AC filter once a month is best.
Don’t have smokers, pets, or household members with chronic illnesses? We recommend replacing your AC filter every three months.
Are You Using the Right Type of AC Filter?
The type of AC filter you use can greatly influence the quality of your home environment and the efficiency of your air conditioner.
Fiberglass AC Filters
Fiberglass filters are the least expensive and can often be found on sale for just a dollar per piece. Fiberglass filters are often ineffective at trapping smaller particles, but they do provide the best airflow.
Pleated AC Filters
Pleated filters are the best value. These filters can capture smaller particles that often pass right through fiberglass filters. Pleated filters also have a larger surface area to work with, which means you can replace them every two or three months (compared to the recommended monthly replacement for fiberglass filters).
Thinking of Using HEPA Filters?
We receive many questions from homeowners curious about using HEPA air filters. Households with members who are suffering from chronic respiratory illnesses, allergies, or asthma are often interested in these types of filters.
While it’s true that HEPA filters are more effective at capturing a variety of indoor allergens and pollutants, their strength is also their drawback. Since they are highly effective at trapping a range of indoor air pollutants, they are easily clogged and can eventually result in restricted airflow and cause your AC to work harder than usual.
Residential comfort systems are often incompatible with HEPA filters, which is why these filters are best when used in commercial settings.

“I have used New Era multiple times and I am more than pleased with their work. This past winter our furnace was not heating up at all. With having a one year old it was critical to have our furnace working properly. They came out the same day and were able to repair the furnace. Thank you to the New Era team for working diligently and professionally. We always recommend them to our friends and family”.
“We are very pleased with the work New Era Plumbing did to get our very old A/C unit up and running today. Charley arrived on time and was incredibly thorough throughout the process. He explained things to me multiple times to make sure I understood the issues, and gave me many options for fixing the problem. We are crossing our fingers that we don’t need heating and cooling again soon, but when we do, we will call them back. Thanks for a great experience!”
