The importance of changing your HEPA air filters on time

Preserve your purifier’s longevity

Regular cleaning of the prefilter, and on-time replacement of HEPA filters can further the longevity of your purifier. Using third-party filters can also lower the efficiency or damage your purifier, so be sure to order proper replacements that were designed for your machine.

 

Maintain cleaner air

Changing your purifier’s air filter ensures cleaner, fresher and healthier air. This is better for everyone in your home, but it’s especially important for children, elderly and those who may suffer from allergies or asthma. Clogged filters can recirculate pollen, dust, and harmful particles instead of purifying the air.

 

Save money

Aside from protecting your purifier from unnecessary damage, replacing a clogged filter can also save you on operating cost. A dirty air filter is forced to use more energy than a new, clean air filter, which means a much higher electricity bill for you. Keep your air filters clean and in good condition, and you could save up to 15% on utility costs.

 

Protect the environment

Failing to clean and replace your air filter on a regular basis is essentially failing the environment. Running your home in an eco-friendly manner doesn’t necessarily mean giving up all forms of comfort and ease in your life. Something as simple as changing an air filter regularly can go a long way in saving energy, and making a difference.

 

How do I know when to change my air filter?

Advanced air purifiers like the Coway Airmega will notify you when to clean or change any of your air filters. Indicators will light up, depending on the action needed. Carbon filters need to be replaced about once every six months, and True HEPA filters about once a year, depending on how much air they have processed. When the pre-filter indicator light is on, clean the unit’s pre-filter to ensure Airmega can run at maximum efficiency.

 

Alexa integration

If you want to be sure to replace your Airmega filters on time, Alexa can help. Once paired, Alexa will remind you when filters need to be cleaned or replaced. You can even set up a smart reorder with you through Amazon to keep your purifier running at its best.
