Don’t Forget the Filter!

B.117 Change Filter

BELOMAN knows it’s very important to remember to regularly change your HVAC filters. By forgetting to change your filter, airborne contaminants will begin to clog up the filter leading to less clean air in your home.  Aside from less allergens being trapped, it will also cause more stress on the system.  A clogged filter will make it harder for the system to cycle air through if air is struggling to pass through the dirty filter.  To avoid causing stress on your system and keep clean air in your home we’ve come up with a list of 5 ways to help remind you to change your filter!

  1. Put filters in common space: one way to remember to change your filter is to put filters in commonly accessed area. If filters are put in an area that isn’t visited they’ll be out of sight out of mind!
  2. Set reminder on phone/calendar: another great way to remember to change your filter is to set reminders in your phone’s calendar or simply write it on your calendar at home. By putting a reminder on your phone you’ll receive an alert to change your filter when it comes time to do so!
  3. Write insert date on filter: before you place your new filter in use a permanent marker to write the date of insert on the filter. This will help to remind you of the date inserted to keep up with the correct timespan to make the next change.
  4. Schedule maintenance w. important dates: certain dates are engraved in our brain to remember such as birthdays and anniversaries. Scheduling maintenance on your birthday to hang out with a technician isn’t really ideal BUT if you schedule maintenance a week after these engraved dates it will be much easier to remember. Plus, when the technician visits your home for bi-annual maintenance he’ll change the filter so you won’t have to worry about it!
  5. Reward yourself: rewarding yourself for remembering can help to sweeten the pot to remember to change your filter next time! Who doesn’t love a little something for themselves?
