Our HVAC Filter Replacement Process

At Magic Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, we take pride in our comprehensive HVAC filter replacement process. We believe in delivering excellent service to our valued customers, and that starts with our meticulous approach to air filter replacement.

When you choose us for your air filter replacement, you can expect our skilled technicians to arrive promptly at your location. We begin by inspecting your HVAC system and the existing filters to determine their condition. 

Once we've completed our assessment, we'll recommend the best type of filter replacement for your HVAC system based on factors like the MERV rating, the size of your system, and your specific air quality needs. Our goal is to ensure that your HVAC air filters are capable of efficiently trapping and removing contaminants, leading to better indoor air quality.

After selecting the appropriate filter, we proceed with the replacement. Our technicians are highly skilled and experienced in handling all types of filters, including furnace filters and air handler filters. We'll remove the old filters and replace them with brand-new ones, making sure your HVAC system operates at its peak efficiency. This not only improves the air quality in your home but also helps reduce energy consumption and lower your energy costs.

If you or any member of your family suffers from allergies or respiratory issues, ask our experts to assess the air quality in your space. We can identify any signs of poor air quality, such as dust, pollen, pet dander, or small particles that may be affecting your indoor air — and offer indoor air quality solutions that will make your air as fresh and crisp as a winter’s day.

Furnace Filter Replacement

Installing a furnace filter can be difficult for many homeowners. Ensuring you properly install your furnace filter means that it will work properly and efficiently. In fact, your furnace filter should be changed every 60 days when it is in use. But if you or anyone you live with has sensitivities to dust, pollutants, or other particles, you should consider replacing the filter more frequently, as often as every 30 days.

Signs Your HVAC Filters Need Replacement

Understanding when it's time to replace your HVAC filters is crucial for maintaining a healthy and efficient heating and cooling system. Here are some signs to look out for:

  • Clogged Filter: If you notice that your air vents are not providing sufficient airflow, it could be due to a clogged filter. Reduced airflow can lead to increased energy consumption and poor indoor air quality.
  • Poor Air Quality: If you or your family members suffer from allergies or you notice an increase in dust and pollen indoors, it's a clear indication that your home air filter needs replacement to improve indoor air quality.
  • More Energy Costs: A dirty or clogged filter forces your HVAC unit to work harder, resulting in higher energy bills. Replacing the filter can significantly reduce your energy costs.
  • Old Filters: Filters have a limited lifespan, and using old, worn-out filters can be ineffective. Regularly replacing them ensures the best air quality and system efficiency.

Types of Filters

When it comes to home air filters, there is no one-size-fits-all. Different types of filters have different levels of efficiency and are designed to capture specific pollutants. It's essential to understand the various types so that you can choose the best one for your home.

Fiberglass Filters

These are the most basic and cost-effective filters. They consist of layered fiberglass fibers to capture large particles like dust and debris but may not be very effective at trapping smaller particles or allergens.

Pleated Filters

Pleated filters have more surface area due to their folded design. They are more efficient at capturing smaller particles, including pollen and pet dander, making them a good choice for improving indoor air quality.

HEPA Filters

High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters are the gold standard for air filtration. They can capture up to 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns, including bacteria and viruses. HEPA filters are often used in healthcare settings and are excellent for allergy sufferers.

Electrostatic Filters

These filters use an electrostatic charge to attract and trap particles. They can be either disposable or washable. They are effective at capturing smaller particles and have a longer lifespan compared to some other filters.

Activated Carbon Filters

Activated carbon filters are designed to remove odors and gasses from the air. They are commonly used in air purifiers and can be useful for eliminating cooking odors, smoke, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

UV Filters

Ultraviolet (UV) filters are not used to capture particles but rather to kill or neutralize bacteria, viruses, and mold spores. They are often installed within HVAC systems to improve indoor air quality.
