Here’s how you can change your air filter
- The first step in changing your air filter is to determine where it is. It’s usually located near the blower on the indoor furnace unit.
- Next, determine what type of air filter it is. Some systems utilize washable air filters that don’t need to be replaced, just cleaned out. Other systems utilize disposable filters that must be changed regularly.
- For washable filters, use water to wash the filter out and let it dry completely before putting it back in.
- For disposable filters, notice the size of the filter, usually printed on the side, and replace with a filter of the same size. Be sure to insert it in the correct direction – there are arrows on the side to help!
