How often do you change your filter?

This can be easy to overlook, but a dirty filter can increase cooling costs. Dirty filters restrict the airflow and the efficiency of the air conditioner, which translates into more run time and higher cooling costs. Filters are cheap, so replace them regularly.

So how often do you change your air filters?

For AC?  I don't.  Ours are reusable and I just have to remove the filter and run it under water until it's clean.  I do that once every week or two.

 I dont change mine.. i have window ac and I just take the filter off and wash it. I do it about every two weeks.

The furnace filter (for the heat) that I change every year.  But we only have it on for 3-4 months.
