Replacing the recuperator filter To ensure good air quality in the room and the longevity of the ventilation system, it is necessary to change the recuperator air filters regularly. How often they need to be replaced depends on several factors: house size, house location, installation time and season

If you use cheaper filters, such as fiberglass, you'll need to replace them more often than high-quality corrugated air filters. Based on these criteria, filters could last for 30 days when they are of poor quality and half a year when they are of poor quality. We recommend using quality air filters and changing them at least twice a year in moderate weather conditions.

In new construction homes, it is recommended to change the filters every two months for the first half of the year, as newly built homes contain residual building material dust. A filter with a lot of dirt is not only bad for your health, but also for the proper operation of the recuperator system - the unit has to work under higher loads to ensure optimal airflow indoors.

Other very important factors that determine how often recuperator filters change are your home location, house size, and season. If you live in the city, there is likely to be more pollution in the air than if you live on the highway. The larger house usually has a longer length of the air duct system, in which case the recuperator is loaded more than the smaller house. During the summer, when the weather is drier, there is more dust in it than in the winter. So if your home is large, in town, and in the summer, air filters are more likely to accumulate dirt than under other conditions.

It is recommended to check the air filters every two months to find out how often they need to be replaced. If the filters are found to be dirty during the inspection, replace them and ensure clean and quality air in your home. A clean heat exchanger system uses less energy and creates a healthy indoor microclimate and a sense of comfort.

What you get by changing your air filters:

  • Protect your ventilation ducts from dirt.

  • Reduce dust, fungus and bacteria in both ventilation ducts and rooms.

  • You guarantee the highest possible heat recovery factor.

  • Keep noise from the air ducts to a minimum.
