“As you can tell, your furnace filter serves an important job in your home. As a result, it’s important to replace it on a regular basis to ensure it can continue to do its job well.
So how often should you replace your air filter? That depends on a few factors. First, how often you replace your filter depends on the thickness of your air filter. Most filters should be replaced every three months. For thicker filters, you may be able to extend that by several months. If you aren’t sure, check the manufacturer’s recommendation for the specific filter you’ve purchased.
But the thickness of your air filter isn’t the only factor to consider. For example, if you have someone in your home with allergies or asthma who requires better indoor air quality, you may want to replace your filter more often.”

How often you and your family are at home is another factor regarding the frequency of furnace filter replacement. Let’s say it is a seasonal home, you wouldn’t need to change the furnace filter if the furnace goes unused during long stretches. However, if you own some furry pets, the air quality will decrease quicker meaning the filter needs to be replaced sooner.
