How often do you change the filters in your furnace? I know you are suppose to change them every 2-3 months but I forget. My daughter changes hers periodically so does my father, but me I just don't I did change it this time when I was suppose to. Now I am out of extra filters and I just can't remember to get any when I go to Wal-Mart I need to write a note. The size I use is 20X20X1. Since I started this discussion I went and checked and yes it need changing now. I am going to write my note now. Before it gets cold enough to turn the heat on. How often do you change your furnace filter? Do you know the size of your furnace filter?

Around here they say for maximum efficiency change it once a month. It does not happen. I use a 25x16x1, I think. I would have to go to the basement to check it out though.

We have a schedule set to do ours. We do ours on the first day of each month at the same time we give our dogs their heart guard. We have it marked on the calendar to do these tasks at the same time, so it is easier to remember to change the filters, because we always remember to gives the dogs their stuff, and we mark it on the calendar with the stickers they give you with the heart guard, so we see the note on the calendar to change the filters as well...

I'm not sure how often they get changed but my husband does change them. He has it schedualed to do it at a certain time. Not sure when but I think it's like every couple of months. Have a good lotting day.
