Why You Need To Change Your Air Filter

Understanding the significance of why you need an air purifier is essential, but maintaining it (such as changing the air filter) is equally important, particularly in countries with significant air pollution.

Polluted indoor air could be filled with all sorts of harmful airborne particles and nasty allergens like dust mites, pollen, pet dander, mould and spores that can trigger allergic reactions and worsen respiratory health.

Most air purifiers rely on air filters to remove harmful particles from the air, ensuring a safe and healthy environment. That said, it is important to change your air filter to keep the entire unit well maintained. Have the inner filters regularly replaced to ensure clean healthy indoor air in your home and reduce the risk of health concerns for your family.

However, knowing exactly when to change your air filter can be confusing. Before we reveal the ideal frequency for air filter changes, let’s first explore the multiple factors influencing this decision.


Common Factors Affecting Air Filter Lifespan


Varying Air Filter Types – Did you know that different air filters have varying lifespans? For instance, HEPA filters that are constructed from woven fiberglass strands may require more frequent replacements compared to pleated air filters.

Poor Outdoor Air Quality – Naturally, the air quality in your surroundings significantly impacts how often your air filter needs changing. Urban areas with high pollution levels may necessitate more frequent replacements compared to rural or less polluted regions.



Pet fur can pollute indoor air.jpg

Furry Pets – Most pet owners understand the struggle of dealing with pet fur and dander. These irritating particles accumulate quickly and can clog air purifier filters faster, therefore requiring more frequent changes to maintain optimal filtration performance.


Home Occupancy – Yes, the number of occupants in your home most definitely contributes to dust accumulation. Imagine the amount of dead skin cells (a significant component of household dust) increasing with more people all living in the same space – this in turn prompts the need for regular air filter checks and replacements.


When to replace your air filter?

Regularly checking and changing your air filter is crucial for ensuring your air purifier operates efficiently. Aim to inspect your air filter every month to assess its condition and replace it promptly if necessary. Additionally, consider vacuuming your mattress and sofa periodically to reduce dust buildup and improve indoor air quality.
