For your health and also for the durability of your system it is important to replace the filters at least twice a year. For newly built homes we recommend that you replace the filters every 2 months for the first 6 months (because of the amount of building material still present in your home). A dirty, saturated filter is not only bad for your health but also for your heat recovery system as it will have to work harder to manage the required airflow.
The location of your home also plays a role in how frequently the filters will need to be changed. If you live in a city, the air will contain more pollution than if you live in the country side. Check your filters every two months to see how dirty they are. Keep your indoor climate clean. A clean heat recovery system offers optimal comfort, a healthy indoor climate and lower power consumption.
Bacteria and Fungi
Health problems arise because bacteria and fungi grow in the filters and ducts. To avoid risks to health and unnecessary wear of the system regular maintenance and cleaning is necessary. It is always advisable to regularly disinfect the system with the correct products. Basic maintenance can be carried out independently and cleaning with f’air probiotics is highly recommended.
We recommended you have your system including the air ducts professionally cleaned and checked every 3 to 4 years.
