You may need to exchange it more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you take a look at your filter each month, you’ll begin to see how often you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your house when you have a clean filter. You’ll experience improved air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder. More work could lead to a decreased lifespan for your system.
