Breathing clean air shouldn’t be a luxury—it’s a necessity. Reducing the allergens, pet dander, and dust in your indoor air is—in great part—the job of the air filter in your HVAC system.
Maintaining the indoor air quality (IAQ) in your home can be as simple as filter installations and timely replacements. At Aire Serv®, we guarantee the job is done right.
Air Filter Replacement
Your air filter doesn’t just help you maintain good IAQ, it also keeps your HVAC system clean internally and working with maximum efficiency.
Whatever your home HVAC system, Aire Serv has expert professionals ready to assist with your residential air filter replacement.
We offer filter replacement service in systems including:
- AC units
- Ductless split air conditioner systems
- Heat pumps
- Whole-home humidifiers
- Whole-home dehumidifiers
All these units have different types of filters, as well as varying replacement requirements. Knowing when to change air filters, where they’re located, how to change them, and how they affect your system is a lot of technical knowledge most people aren’t always prepared to manage.
Replacing an air filter in a furnace or A/C unit can be tricky. That’s why our service professionals are expertly trained and constantly up to date on HVAC system technology, tools, and brands.

Frequently Asked Questions
How to change air filters:
The overall process involves purchasing the correct-size replacement, turning off your system, locating the filter, properly inserting the new one, and turning your system back on. However, selecting the right MERV rating and size filter, as well as properly installing it, can be challenging.
How often should you replace your air filter?
Generally, you should replace your air filters once every 60–90 days. But this guideline can change depending on the size of your home as well as if you have pets in your home or occupants with allergies. It also depends on the type of filter and system.
What is the best MERV rating for air filters?
The best MERV rating for air filters is 13, which helps filter pollen, mold, smoke, bacteria, and more. But depending on your home needs and type of HVAC system, you might be better off with a lower-rated filter. Using a filter with a MERV rating that is too high or low can be harmful to your system and your IAQ. Filters with a MERV rating that is not compatible with your unit may not adequately filter the air or cause the system to be overworked.
