Cleaning Your Ductless Air Filter

Posted by Adam Leech on

If you want your system to last as long as possible, cleaning each indoor ductless unit's filter is important. In short, regularly cleaning the filters will:

  • Keep your system running efficiently
  • Helps you avoid unnecessary service calls
  • Maintains your warranty
  • Gives you better indoor airflow so you're breathing cleaner, fresher air
  • Avoid damage to your home caused by leaking water
  • Saves you money on electricity

Cleaning filters is relatively simple too. In less than 5 minutes, you can clean all the ductless filters in your mini-splits. 

Each manufacturer recommends cleaning filters at different intervals. Generally, we recommend cleaning filters every 2 - 6 months depending on your situation. If you have pets, you'll need to clean the filters more often. If your system's installed in a wide-open space, you could probably get away with cleaning it every 6 months or so.

In four simple steps, you can ensure your mini-split stays running for years to come.
