The Importance of Spring Cleaning Your Utility Room

Don’t Forget to Clean the Heart of Your Home

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU REPLACE YOUR AIR FILTER?

• Homes with minimal foot traffic (single or double occupancy) and no pets or allergies: 6 to 12 months.

• Family homes (three or more occupants) with no pets or allergies: 3 to 6 months.

• Family homes with at least one pet or minor allergies: 2 to 3 months.

• Family homes with multiple pets or allergies: 1 to 2 months.

In addition to changing the air filter, it’s important to schedule a routine inspection of your home’s HVAC system. This includes an inspection of the appliances themselves and any connecting ducts. Dust, dander, and mold can accumulate in the ducts and spread throughout the home, which can lead to health issues, including respiratory problems. A routine inspection will identify potential problems in your HVAC system. On top of that, you can get these systems professionally cleaned and maintained. These are simple steps that will keep your home’s air systems running smoothly for years to come. Plus, you’ll be ready for the summer months ahead!
