How To Replace A Standard HVAC Filter

Furnace filters are an extremely important part of your heating and cooling system. Standard 1" filters, when changed on a regular basis, will keep your HVAC system running efficiently. Replacing your furnace filter to a clean one helps to keep cleaner indoor air, lowers energy costs, assists in a cleaner HVAC system, and extends the lifespan of the heating and cooling system. 

The general rule of thumb is to check the cleanliness of your filter every 30 days. In order for your system to run correctly and in great condition, the HVAC filter should be changed on a regular, monthly basis.

Is it time to replace your filter? Below we will tell you step-by-step how to replace your standard furnace filter. 

Standard 1" HVAC Filter Replacement

1. Locate where your furnace filter is; some filters are located in the ceiling, but the most common location for the HVAC filter is in the ductwork near the furnace.

2. Find the arrow that says 'airflow' on the white edge corners of the standard 1" filter.

3. Make sure that the arrow points towards the furnace. Open the small filter rack door and slide the filter into that opening.

4. Once the filter is in the rack correctly, you should shut the door to the filter rack tightly. 

Changing your standard furnace filter is an easy way to keep your system working the best it can and will also help to save money in the long run.
