Here’s How You Can Properly Replace Your Furnace Filter:
- Turn off the furnace. Locate the filter compartment, remove the old filter, and dispose of it. Note the size of the filter, so you could get the right replacement for it. Although a filter that has a plastic frame can be reused. You just have to clean it outdoors with water, and then dry it completely before reinserting it.
- Check at your local hardware stores or online to get the replacement for your filter. Make sure it has the right size to fit firmly into the compartment.
- Install the new furnace filter. Slide it into the compartment following the printed arrows on the frame indicating airflow direction. Make sure the filter is facing the right direction or risk blocking airflow and damage the furnace.
- Use pleated paper filters instead of the fibreglass ones that don’t do the filtering very well.
- Change your filters every time it gets dirty, not just when it’s scheduled to be checked.
- Get your furnace serviced by a professional once a year.
