You know all of those important jobs that you fully intend to do to be a good adult? Yeah, us too. Changing your air filter is one of the simplest and most important HVAC maintenance chores you can do regularly to make sure that your indoor air quality remains healthy and your HVAC system will function well for many years. And yet, it’s a task that’s difficult to remember. We put together a list of ways to help you remember to periodically change the air filters in your Tokio, Texas, home.
Most of us are glued to our smartphone and digital calendars to keep us up-to-date on all things in our lives, so why not use it to manage your air filters? Depending on which type of filters you purchase, they may need to be changed every month or every few months. Consider setting the reminder for the weekend when you’re more likely to be at home. If you don’t have time to make the change immediately, at least use the reminder as a prompt to put the filter in a place where you’ll see it.
Newer digital and smart thermostats have the ability to remind you when the air filter needs to be changed. Depending on your thermostat model, it might flash a notification or send a message to your mobile phone.
Sync With Other Chores
Most of us have made habits out of certain chores, such as cleaning the bathroom or vacuuming the house. Try to sync your air filter changing to those chores, and it will soon become a simple habit to maintain.
We hope these tips make it easy for you to remember when to change your filter and how important it is to your indoor air quality and the proper functioning of your HVAC system. Another important maintenance task is scheduling your annual HVAC inspection. Give Bruce Thornton Air Conditioning a call anytime at 806-589-1014 to schedule your appointment.
