Frequency of AC Filter Replacement

Indoor air quality needs and comfort levels differ with every household, which means frequency of air filter replacement will also differ. Homes with pets or smokers may need to replace filters frequently, while those with respiratory issues or allergies may require even more frequent replacement.

      Are You Using the Right Type of AC Filter?

      We recommend using filters that are best suited for your home and your household’s needs. Most homeowners use either fiberglass or pleated filters.

      Fiberglass AC Filters

      These are the most popular with customers since they are also the least expensive. You can often find them selling for a dollar per piece. But you often get what you pay for—fiberglass filters are less efficient at trapping debris and will need to be replaced at least once a month, making them less cost-effective over time. The advantage, though, is that they offer better airflow.

      Pleated AC Filters

      Do you have pets that shed or family members with allergies? We recommend using pleated filters (the ones that resemble “accordions”). This type of AC filter is much more effective at keeping dirt, dust, and debris from circulating through your home. Unlike fiberglass filters, they can also trap smaller particles such as dust mites, pet dander, and mold spores.

      Pleated AC filters can be replaced every three months. This makes them a more cost-effective choice over the typical fiberglass filter.

      Friendly tech and knowledgeable! He used my outdoor clean out tube to snake and clear clogged drain. He took the time to mop up spills made in the... house and took the time to take care of us. Found the sewer backing up and master tech had it finished and cleaned 2-3 hours later. Good value too for it being after hours.read more

      On time, always nice. They try to get you the best price. You could find cheaper but the quality will not be as good as MasterTech. I have never... had problems with them.read more

      After a plumbing backup turned my house into a revolving door for strangers - who weren't a bit concerned about me, my stuff, my time, etc -... MasterTech was a breath of fresh air. The people from MasterTech that came to my house were nice, professional, and so incredibly quick. The big job that needed excavation to be done was even done within a day. I was blown away by how quick they were.Edit: and again, they got to my house quick, figured everything out, and got it back together before reconstruction was supposed to start. I will be sticking with MasterTech.read more

      Sunday morning and kitchen faucet wouldn't shut off. There was nothing obvious to me. This was a single handle faucet. I shut off water supply to... the house and called the Master Tech 24 hour service. The kids and all of the Grandkids were coming over and I needed to have the water on and a functioning faucet. The lady that took my call was friendly and helpful and told me a repairman would soon call me. Shortly thereafter 'John' called and asked what the problem was and recommended that I go out and buy a new faucet and that I was third on his list and he would be here in a couple of hours. John showed up and got to work immediately. Very pleasant man and obviously very skilled. He was done in 15-20 minutes. A big thank you to the lady that answered my original call and to John for his fast and professional service.read more

      MasterTech has the most professional and personable technicians and customer service representatives I’ve ever encountered. They schedule... appointments quickly and arrive on time. A text was sent to my phone with pictures of the three employees who would be installing the system before they arrived. Everything agreed upon and signed for electronically was immediately sent to my email for my records and review.read more

      I've used other plumbing services before but mastertech outshines every plumber I've ever used. Every person I have spoken to, whether it's the... customer service rep who took my calls or the technicians, they are all so nice and they are all upfront and tell you exactly what the issue is and what could have caused it. Their prices are also the cheapest I was able to find. I regret not using their services sooner! I've got their number saved in my phone and I'm going to be using them for now on. I've definitely told a few friends about them and have already recommended their services.read more

      I cannot speak highly enough of Master Tech and their staff. It's currently -8 and I woke up to my home at 54 degrees. I left a voicemail for MT at... 7:30 and received a call at 8:08 AM and a technician was at my home at 9:40 AM. Snow was blocking my external exhaust on the home, so it couldn't create combustion to turn on the furnace. The fix was rather simple, but took time and thinking through the problem. Tyler was amazing. The service was 10/10 and he really took the time to explain to me what was happening. I have a monthly service plan with this company too - that I started in October - and it's been great. They are always on time, professional, reasonably priced and so good at their job. I cannot recommend them enough!!Just here to say again - Master Tech is the best! I highly recommend the monthly service plan and all their technicians are wonderful! Today, Matt was so great with my furnace set up for the cooler months ahead! I really appreciate having such a wonderful company who I know will treat me right!read more

      The girl at the office called to let me know the technician was on the way and texted me his picture so I would know it was him.Tyler, the... technician, was on time. He was friendly, personable and knowledgeable about his work. Did the furnace checkup and installed some filters . He showed me different components on the furnace and where to install the filter.When he was done, Tyler briefed me on his findings.This is my first house with gas, so safety was foremost on my mind. Tyler reassured me that my furnace is operating safely and efficiently so no worries.If I ever have a need, I wont hesitate to call them!MasterTech is fantastic!! Extremely fair pricing as well!read more

      Matt and Nathan came to replace an outside hydrant. Nathan made a great suggestion to move it to a better place. They did a GREAT job and left my... place way better than they found it. I am HUGELY grateful. They were professional but super nice and pleasant to work with. They had everything they needed on the spot and were done in no time. I am beyond pleased with their work and would call them again in a heartbeat. I am so relieved to have this work done!read more

      Since I recently bought a house that's a little older everything is starting to go out at once. I have called Mastertech twice in the past couple of... weeks for my water heater and my air conditioner and both times they came out and fixed the issue quickly. They told me the price before they started work and in the case of my water heater they gave me a few different price options based on what repairs they recommended. I have a few more minor things to do still so I will definitely be calling them back. Everyone I dealt with both times in the office and service call were super helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend if you need something done fast and right.read more

      What About HEPA Filters?

      If you have someone in your household who suffers from respiratory problems or allergies, you may be thinking of switching your regular filter for a HEPA filter.

      While this kind of filter is great at reducing the spread of allergens and irritants in your home, it works a little too well. Why is this a problem? With the ability to trap more particles and allergens, a HEPA filter can also restrict normal airflow and put a strain on your AC unit. You can solve this problem by replacing the filter more often, but this isn’t always cost-efficient.

      Our HVAC experts are happy to discuss the benefits of the different filter options and help you select the right one for your family.
