Of all the tasks involved with maintaining your Kent apartment, changing the air filter is probably one of the most neglected. It’s easy to either forget about it, or to put it off. Many people don’t realize how important it is, how often it needs to be done, or how easy it is to do it!
Changing your apartment’s air filter needs to be done every one to three months, depending on the filter type. The filter traps dust, dander and other allergens. When you change the filter, you greatly improve the air quality in your home.
If you have pets, or someone in your home has allergies or asthma, it is even more important to change the filter regularly.
It’s easy to do, and if you don’t know how, simply ask the manager of your building to show you how. It is important that you get the right size and type for your unit. One solution is to simply take the old filter down to the home improvement store and they will find the right one for you.
Remember that changing the filter often will help you home be healthier and more comfortable, especially for anyone with allergies!
