FAQ

Q: Where do I find my air filter?

A: Your air filter is either located in a wall-mounted return air grille, the blower compartment of your furnace, or in an attached filter case. If you cannot find the air filter, call One Hour for help

Q: How can I improve the quality of my home’s indoor air?

A: There are several steps you can take everyday to reduce the pollutants and particles circulating in your home’s air. Some easy (and quick) methods include:

    1. Storing your household cleaners, chemical products and paint solvents in tightly sealed containers. If possible, keep them out of the house in a garage or shed.
    2. Cleaning and vacuuming once a week, at least.
    3. Regularly washing your bed linens and stuffed toys.
    4. Keeping your windows closed when pollen, pollution, or humidity levels are high. You can find this information from your local news station.
    5. Making sure your home is properly ventilated. (Modern homes are well insulated and sealed to conserve energy, but this leaves airborne pollutants with no way to escape).
    6. Keeping humidity levels within a healthy, comfortable range to prevent growth of mold and mildew (humidity levels should stay between 30% – 60%).
    7. Avoiding deodorizers and odor-masking air fresheners, which may contain toxic chemicals.
    8. Choosing furnishings that emit the smallest possible amount of chemical vapors.
    9. Do not allow smoking inside your home and make sure all of your gas appliances are properly vented.

Q: How often does my Air Filter need to be replaced?

A: The answer to this question depends on a couple of factors. The frequency of filter replacements is driven by how often your heating and air conditioning system operates, which is determined by how you set your thermostat.  A good rule of thumb is to start checking the filters at least once a month. Compare the used filter to a new, clean, one to get a feel for how dirty the filter becomes. When light is obscured by captured particles, the filter should be replaced. Try keeping a record of how long your filters last for one year, then replace the filter using this basis. At a minimum, it is always a good idea to change filters at the beginning of summer and winter, then keep an eye on the filter to change it out as needed. It is also a good idea to have your heating and air system checked at the beginning of the hot and cold seasons to insure all parts are operating properly.
