Let’s face it — changing the air filter every month is probably not high up on your priority list, but it definitely should be. With so many tasks on your to-do list every day, it’s not wonder that sometimes swapping out your old air filter isn’t top of mind. Lucky for you, we’ve got a solution. In fact, we’ve got four!

4 Simple Solutions To Never Forget to Change an Air Filter | Tyler Heating & Air Conditioning | Heating Fairfield County

  1. Make a master checklist. The best way to hit every item on your to-do list is to actually create one. Add all of your annual maintenance items, including changing your filters, and when they should be completed by. Then, display it loud and proud on the fridge so you can’t forget!

  1. Add tasks to the calendar. Whether you work off a digital copy, or prefer an old fashioned wall calendar, simply adding “change filter” on the first of every month can make all the difference!

  1. Set a monthly reminder. Go one step further and allow technology to do the remembering for you. Set a reminder on your phone or email to alert you monthly to check on your filters.

  1. Pre-purchase your filters. Each January, purchase twelve air filters to last the whole year. Then label them with each month, and store them in a safe space. You may even be able to get a good deal if you buy in bulk.
