1. How often should I check my air filter?

We believe it is important to check your air filters monthly. Depending on what type of air filter you have will greatly determine the health. If you have a disposable type filter and you start to notice it’s dirty we recommend you just throw it away and replace it with a new one. Non-reusable ones can last months, but it’s still important to check them monthly and make sure they are up to code.
