How often should I replace my filters?
Different types of filtration media must be replaced or cleaned at different frequencies. We determine these frequencies based on actual in home performance tests and their effect on your systems reliability. Filter manufacturers base recommended replacement times for a specific set design conditions. However, system design varies dramatically based on region and climate patterns. For example, in the northeast systems are designed to operate most effectively in a cold snowy climate. They even use different components (such as boilers) to achieve this goal. In Houston our goals, systems, and design configurations are much different. Our replacement schedule is based on average replacement needs at Houston’s standard design conditions.
