Home Improvement & Repair Tips : How to Clean or Replace Furnace Filters


Hi, I’m James with JNC Home Repair, today
I’m going to show you how to replace your furnace filter or air conditioning filter.
It’s pretty common around the house, it’s something that you’ve got to do, if you’ve
got to replace your air filter on a regular basis or your air conditioner is just going
to clog up and it won’t work. One thing to consider, most people just use those real
cheap filters and those are real good except for you’ve got to change them every thirty
days. If you have an allergy type filter, you can replace those every ninety to maybe
even four months, even up to six months. The bad thing about using those allergy filters
is it restricts a lot of air flow and you may experience some difficulty in cooling
your house. You may be back in a back room or something and it’s not cooling properly,
that’s maybe where you want to start or maybe check and see if you’ve got the wrong type
of filter in there. You also want to choose the right size filter, you don’t want one
that’s too small or too big. If you’ve got one that’s too small then you’re going to
have air going through there that’s not going through the filter and it’s just going to
be recirculating a lot of dust and dirt and it’s just going to be blowing out of your
vents. First thing you want to do is you just want to find your access panel. You want to
remove your access panel from the front of the unit, some of them are inside, some of
them are outside in the garage, just depending on where yours is at. They have them in different
locations, sometimes they’re even in the returns but this particular model we’re going to remove
the access panel and we’re going to remove the old air filter and then we’re going to
replace it with a new filter.
