When the warmer weather is finally on the horizon, it’s a great time to ensure that your air conditioning system is ready to do its job. If you didn’t know, one of the most important things you will need to do during this time is check and (most likely) change the air filter. However, this is often easier said than done as a lot of people either neglect, or forget to perform this simple task. To help you better remember to change your air filter at the start of the spring season, you can consider the following tips:
Set up reminders on your phone, computer, or tablet.
The first thing you can do that will help you remember to change or check your air filter is set up reminders on your phone, computer, or tablet. When doing this, it’s important to keep in mind that the frequency in which you change an air filter also depends on its type. For instance, a high-efficiency filter will not need to be changed as often.
Write the date your air filter should be changed on the next filter.
Aside from reminders, something else you can do is write the date that your air filter needs to be changed on the next air filter. This strategy will also work well for those who often forget how long it’s been since the filter was replaced.
Place the air filters somewhere that you will always notice them.
Storing your air filters somewhere out of sight may cause you to forget about them. Therefore, to help remind yourself of their existence, you can store them somewhere where you will constantly be reminded that you need to change them. Some places could be your laundry room, a closet, and/or spare bedroom.
Make changing and/or checking your air filter a part of your spring cleaning.
If you have a spring cleaning ritual, one of the best ways to help you remember to change your air filter is to add it to your list of cleaning duties. That way, you will feel compelled to check your air filter so that you can continue moving down your list of cleaning activities.
Both checking on and changing your air filter is important if you wish to have a properly functioning air conditioning system.
