Frequently Asked Questions

Short answer would be at least every 3 months. But depending on many factors like, area climate, pets in the home, age of the home, number of filters in the home, how many days out of the year you run your cooling and heating, and many other factors, you may need to change them every 2 months or even 1 month. Simple factor, if you change them and they are really dirty, you should probably change them more frequently.
We ship our filters out between same day and 3 days depending on if it is an odd size filter, custom filter, or standard filter. We primarily use USPS Priority mail that delivers within 3 days. In some cases on single filter orders to a different region we will ship USPS Parcel select or even FEDEX.

All of our air filters are great quality, our most popular filter is our Allergen Preferred MERV 11. That filter is great for a house with 1 pet, multiple filters, and people with mild allergies. Our Allergen Supreme is for people with multiple pets, high allergies, polluted area, and many more that you can read on our Products Page. The Allergen filter is our standard MERV 8, great for homes with no pets, very little allergies. View our Products Page to learn more.

MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. That basically means how effective your air filter is. It is scaled from 1-16 and 16 being the highest but we at FilterTime don’t recommend anything higher than a MERV 13 for residential homes. We like a great balance between filtration and air restriction.
We promote cleaner air in your home, and the cheap filters just don’t do the job we are looking for. We want you to breathe happy, not dirty.
  • There are many benefits of changed your air filters on-time. Here are just a couple.
  • Breathe cleaner air in your home, if you don’t change your filters when they are supposed to be changed, the air in your home could be much more polluted than the air outside.
  • Save money. Changing your air filter on time can save up to 15% on your heating and cooling bill. Dirty air filters are also the leading cause for HVAC service calls. Not changing your filters regularly can also shorten the lifespan of the second most expensive thing in your home, you HVAC system.

The air filter will have an arrow on the side. You want to install the filter so the arrow is pointing in the direction of the airflow.
