Always make sure you use the correct size filter pad
This one may seem obvious, but you should never put an incorrect size pad in your air filter, as this means you may as well be using no filter at all. A filter of the wrong size will leave gaps where unfiltered air can pass through and back out into your home.
Here at Aireman Filtration, we’ve found a way to combat this issue by offering you a subscription order of replacement pads when you purchase your air filter, so you have the option of making sure you’ll always be receiving the correct size replacement pad, keeping your air filter working exactly as it should.
Know your specific requirements
No one will know the ins and outs of your household better than you, which is why you will be best placed to know how often you have to change your air filter. Whether you live in a house with a lot of people, the number of pets you own and whether anyone in your home suffers from allergies or other respiratory problems such as asthma are all factors that will mean you have to change your air filter more often.
Don’t forget to change
Another important thing you need to remember is when the correct time is to switch your old pad out for a new one. Typically speaking, pads should last you anywhere up to 3 months or 90 days, which can be quite a long time to keep track of, making it easy to forget to replace them, leaving you with an air filter that is not performing properly.
Using a replacement pad delivery service – such as the one offered by Aireman Filtration – is a great way to remind yourself that your pad needs changing, every time you see the pads in your mailbox. If you don’t have a replacement pad delivery schedule set up, then putting reminders in the calendar of your phone can alert you to when the pads need replacing.
Choosing your air filter from Aireman Filtration means you can set a delivery frequency for your replacement pads that’s most convenient for your needs, ensuring your filter is always performing as well as it should.
Keep safety in mind
As a rule, whenever you are changing your filter pads you should make sure you switch off not just the air filter, but your full HVAC system as well. This is because your air filter can be positioned near electrical wiring which could give you a nasty jolt if you haven’t taken the precaution of disconnecting it first. Always take the relevant precautions to ensure your safety!
