Changing Your HVAC Air Filter: Ways to Remember

April 26, 2016 | Blog

Changing Your HVAC Air Filter: Ways to RememberYour HVAC air filter provides an important barrier against dust and other harmful particles. Keeping these clean and in good shape is essential for the wellbeing of your heating and cooling system. Here are tips for remembering to check filters every month.

Set Reminders

Use a phone app, computer calendar or similar digital app to alert you when it is time to check the air filter. Most of these can be set to alert you each month on a specific day of the month.

Send an Email to Yourself

If you know it is almost time to check the air filter but you are worried you will forget, send yourself an email about it. In the subject heading, write the reminder in bold letters, followed by exclamation points. When you receive the email, use a star or flag feature in your email program to make the email stand out from others. This works best for those who check their email at least once a day.

Stick a Note on your Refrigerator

Everyone visits, or at least passes by, this appliance a few times a day. Because of this fact, it is an excellent place for posting reminders. Choose a brightly colored sticky note and write your air filter reminder here.

Choose a Specific Day of Each Month

It is easier to remember to do things if they become a habit associated with a particular day of the week or month. An example is the last Saturday of the month. Mark your designated day on a calendar.

Place Filters in a Visible Area

Despite your best intentions, it can be easier to forget to change filters if they are stored away out of sight. Keep them with other things you use often, such as laundry supplies or on a designated shelf of a linen closet. Make a bright pink or orange label to stick on them or on the shelf they are on so you are reminded they are there each time.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
