Carrier Air Filters and Furnace Filters
Air filters and furnace filters do more than block dirt and particles from affecting the machinery in your warming or heating units. They can also improve air quality by removing dust, pollen, pet dander, human hair, bacteria, and viruses from circulating in your home. The first modern air conditioner system was invented in 1902 by Willis Carrier. Today, Carrier is a respected and trusted brand in the homes of millions of people.

How Often Should I Change My Filters?
The answer is going to depend on a few factors. First, how many people live in your home, and how many of them have allergies? If you live alone or with only one other person and neither one of you have allergies, and neither one of you smokes or does anything else indoors that would add chemicals to the air, then you can change yours every three months. However, with more people in your home means more cooking, more hairspray, and more opportunities for indoor chemicals to collect. If you have one or more pets, then you have a higher risk of pet dander collecting in your home. If you have one pet, you can typically change your filters every two months, but if you have more than one pet then you want to change it every month. During the pollen season, people with really strong allergies will typically change the filter every 30 days.
You should speak to your Carrier representative about which filter works for you, and to schedule regular maintenance checks every 6 months. But as a general guideline, Carrier suggests changing your air filters every 1-3 months.
Every month: If you or a household member have allergies, or if you have multiple pets.
Every 2 months: If you have pets but no allergies.
Every 3 months: If you have no pets or allergies.
Properties that are not frequently occupied, such as rental properties, can replace their filters every 6 months.
What Type of Carrier Air Filter And Furnace Filter Do I Need?
Again this is going to depend on what your goals are, what your indoor activities like, and what your budget is. If you are an individual without allergies and you live alone or with only one other person, then a flat fiberglass filter will work just fine for you. These do not block allergens as effectively as other types of filters but they’re very inexpensive. Pleated filters are more tightly woven and can block contaminants from entering your home such as pollen, dirt, dust, pet dander, bacteria, and viruses. Today, people have the benefit of using the best technology in the industry to keep clean air flowing in their homes.
What type of filter you need will depend on your unit, what your health needs are, and what your blower’s capacity is. This is why it is important to speak to a qualified Carrier representative so you get the right product.
