Air conditioning filters collect dust, pollen, and other indoor air debris. The filter traps these particles on its surface, preventing them from floating throughout your home and clogging up your AC unit. In short, these filters help control and improve your home’s air quality.

How Effective is Your Air Filter?
There are six common types of air conditioning filters: standard panel, electrostatic, extended-surface, polyester, electronic, and HEPA filters. Depending on which type of filter you have, its efficiency in removing dust from your home ranges from less than 5 percent to over 99 percent.
How Often Should You Replace Your Filter?
Manufacturers recommend that the average air conditioning filter be changed every 30 to 60 days, but this number can vary widely based on several factors. If you live in a less polluted area, you may not need to change your filter as often as people living in highly polluted areas. If you own a vacation home, the filter may not even need to be replaced any more than every six to twelve months.
The average suburban family with no pets is able to use a filter for 90 days before replacement. On the other hand, if your home is full of people or pets, or if you are prone to allergies, you will need to change your air filter as frequently as once a month.
