Commercial Air Filter Replacement
To ensure the safety of your property, it's important to routinely schedule commercial air filter changing services. Doing so will help protect your HVAC units from malfunctioning and keep harmful indoor pollutants at bay.
If you notice:
- Increased allergens
- Higher heating and cooling bills
- Debris buildup around the filter, unit, or building
- Stale or musty smells
- Decreased HVAC unit efficiency
then your system may require more frequent air filter replacement.
It's also important to frequently reevaluate this schedule as you obtain new workers, tenants, or changing environmental conditions. It's possible that pollutants may change or those routinely visiting your building have more severe allergies—in turn, filters may need to be upgraded or more frequently changed.

Frequently Asked Questions
How often to change commercial air filter?
To maintain healthy air quality, air filters for commercial buildings should be replaced quarterly. This frequency may differ depending on the type of environment though. In cleaner office-like buildings, this schedule may be closer to 3–4 times a year, whereas, in more sensitive or polluted environments such as hospitals or factories, replacement may be needed monthly (or even weekly). HVAC sensors can help determine this schedule.
What size air filter do I need for my business?
To determine the correct size air filter, you can look at your existing filter for measurements—typically listed on the outer edge. There should be three measurements: length, width, and thickness. However, if you plan to install or upgrade a filter, the thickness measurement may change. The best way to accurately size your filter and avoid HVAC damage is with professional services.
What type of air filter do I need for a commercial building?
To produce cleaner air and help remove harmful pollutants in your commercial environment, it’s recommended that you use filters with a higher MERV rating. For most commercial spaces, a rating of 13 is ideal. Ratings of 16–20 are typically found in medical spaces. However, there are also various types of filters, including fiberglass, washable, HEPA, UV, and more. An HVAC specialist can best determine the right fit for your building.
