Replacing a furnace filter is as simple as taking the old one out and putting a new one in. But, here are some tips to make the job even easier.
- Check the size of the filter so that you can buy the right replacement.
- As you take it out, note the direction of air flow (indicated by the arrow on the side of the filter) so that you can install the new one in the same direction.
- Consider setting up a schedule for replacing the filter. You can use Amazon’s “Subscribe & Save” feature to get the filter regularly and at a discount. Regular replacement increases the lifespan of your HVAC system.
And that’s it! While you’re at it, consider tackling some other simple maintenance tasks.
