At Meade’s Heating and Air our experts are prepared to help you with routine AC tune-ups and maintenance services, including AC filter replacement. Give us a call to learn more about our annual HVAC service agreements, which involve comprehensive AC equipment inspections and cleaning.

HOW OFTEN IS AC FILTER REPLACEMENT REQUIRED

Frequency of AC filter replacement will be different for every household, and will depend on your particular situation. blocked, which can then lead to recurring cooling problems and a drop in indoor air quality.

  • Do you have pets or household members who smoke? If so, it’s best to replace your AC filter every two months.
  • Does anyone in your household suffer from allergies, asthma, or chronic respiratory illness? If this is the case, we recommend replacing your AC filter every six weeks.
  • Don’t have any pets, smokers, or household members with respiratory conditions? You can replace your AC filter every three months.

ARE YOU USING THE RIGHT
TYPE OF AC FILTER?

How often you replace your AC filter will also depend on the type of filter you use. The two most common filter options include fiberglass and pleated filters.

HEPA Filters

If you have sensitive family members with allergies or chronic respiratory conditions, you may be looking into HEPA filters. These are highly effective at capturing small particles and can significantly reduce the amount of airborne pollutants and allergens in your home.

As a result, it’s also easier for HEPA filters to become blocked with debris—which will eventually restrict airflow. This is why HEPA filters are often recommended for commercial or industrial HVAC equipment rather than for residential use.

Pleated Air Filters

Pleated AC filters are often recommended for households with pets, or for those who suffer from allergies. Pleated filters are able to trap smaller particles that would normally pass right through fiberglass filters.

Pleated filters also feature a larger surface area to catch debris, so they don’t have to be replaced every month; you can often replace them every two or three months.

Most households will do well with pleated AC filters, which provide good value and quality.

Fiberglass Air Filters

Fiberglass AC filters are the most budget-friendly, and can often be found for a dollar apiece.

They typically need to be replaced every month, which may prove to be least cost-effective over time.

If you are looking for a better-value option, we recommend using pleated filters.

Very happy with the response time and that they gave us a set of four options for how to proceed at different price levels and also shared knowledge of heating system with us!

Meade's installed a whole house humidifier for me. They were knowledgeable and professional. They had to run an electrical line and called an electrician in to make sure it was done correctly. Very happy with their work.

After having 2 different Corporate Company's come out and charge us over $200 to not fix the problem. 5 minutes after Ben from Meade showed up he clearly explained the problem and the solution. And in a 4 day turn around I will have a functioning system. And it only took one call the Meade

Recently I have replaced my Attic HVAC system through MEADE’S. They have installed Lennox systems to replace my old Carrier Infinity systems. I am very happy and highly satisfied by their work and for a project well done. I am giving them 5 Stars – would have given 10 Stars if that would have been the norm. The question is why I chose MEADE’S, which is a new and small company, over so many highly reputed companies who have been in the business for a long time. I met David, the owner of MEADE’S few months ago while they were installing new HVAC systems for the whole house to one of my neighbors. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of their work, detailed workmanship. My conversation with David also enlightened me of my knowledge on HVAC systems. Ten years ago, when I replaced my systems, selected a large company after a thorough review from a sample of 10 companies. I have regretted doing so when I realized much later their poor installations and yearly services where every time a new person would come and do minimum. When I saw my neighbor’s new HVAC systems installed by MEADE’S, I decided to change mine even though I could have waited a few more years. I am very happy about my decision that I did. Now in few weeks’ time they will come back to install a new system – Lennox for the downstairs.If you are in the market for a new HVAC system and/or for annual maintenance plan, I would highly recommend that you choose MEADE’S. Young professional, knowledgeable, highly skilled technicians, courteous and no sales pressure. Big is not necessarily good, “Small is Beautiful”.

The heat went out in our house the day after Christmas. I called Meade's and they sent a technician out within two hours. Our system was extremely old and we opted to replace the entire HVAC system. They were able to schedule the install for 3 days later. Every technician on their team was extremely nice, polite and knowledgeable and the pricing was very reasonable.

Recently had Meade's out based on a friends recommendation and we're extremely happy we did. David and his team were fantastic! They were professional, on-time, and went above and beyond to explain everything we were experiencing. Best part was their prices as they could have easily taken advantage of our situation and didn't! Thank you Meade's for a great experience! Highly recommend.

Benjamin was on time and very professional. It took him no time to determine the problem and gave me good, solid options with details. I asked a lot of questions and Benjamin was very patient. He suggested I sign up for the monthly Premier Partnership, which I did and this allows for two inspection and safety check-ups per year, among other benefits. I really like the fact that this company focuses solely on heating and air conditioning.My air conditioning system works great now! and I would definitely hire Meade's Heating and Air again and will recommend them to my neighbors.

I hired Meads to install my water heater as mine had busted the day before. Both technicians showed up on time and were dressed professionally.

Our A/C was freezing up. Had Ben come out after having a few other companies out and he diagnosed the issue quickly. Two other companies would have only replaced my A/C but the problem was my furnace. He was able to get a new furnace and A/C installed quickly and reasonably priced. Always professional and a great value!

We were worried about our aging furnace not making it through the winter, so we called Meade’s out based on a recommendation from a friend, and man are we glad we did! We learned so much about our system and what to expect moving forward. Hopefully we’ll make it through the winter, but if not, we know who we’ll be calling. Great service, great people. Highly recommend.

He always asked for approval before replacing parts and double tested everything to ensure the problems were resolved.Their high degree of professionalism stood out and their pricing is competitive. Their covid safety is also top notch; outstanding contractor!

The work was done as promised. We ran into a couple of problems, one concerning the mother board in the outside unit and one concerning my house. The folks from Meade dealt with both issues promptly and professionally. I highly recommend them to anyone considering a mini-split ductless system.

It is hard to believe that having your AC unit die in the middle of some of the hottest weeks this summer would be grounds for saying that it was one of the biggest blessings you could have imagined.  And on top of that, my water heater started leaking and needed replacement as well. I can not say enough wonderful things about my experiences with Meade's Heating and Air... specifically Ben, Mike, and David.  They are the picture of TRUE GENTLEMEN. Whether it be via email, on the phone, or in-person, they were all extremely and exceptionally PROFESSIONAL, COURTEOUS, PUNCTUAL if not early, DEPENDABLE, KNOWLEDGEABLE, SKILLED, PROMPTLY COMMUNICATIVE, HONEST, STRAIGHTFORWARD, THOUGHTFUL, COMPASSIONATE,CARING,KIND, HUMBLE, PATIENT, and very GRACIOUS... while providing a QUALITY SERVICE at very COMPETITIVE and REASONABLE PRICES.  They replaced my AC unit and my Water Heater, started bright and early around 8:00 AM and were done with both installs just after lunch.  Their workmanship reflects their extreme ATTENTION TO DETAIL and is so far ABOVE and BEYOND expectations, that the results are undeniable.  I will be forever grateful for all that they have done for me in a time of crushing life-overload.  I highly recommend calling MEADE'S HEATING and AIR for any and all services that they provide.  You will never, not ever regret it!

We are currently renovating our home and decided to replace the HVAC/furnace. In addition our vents were built into the floor so we decided we wanted to move them to the ceiling to gain optimal airflow in our house.We met with multiple companies and were referred to Meade by our neighbor. They came out and spent several hours walking through different scenarios for us. It was not a sales pitch in any way, they truly just cared.Needless to say they were hired and built the perfect system. The attention to detail was pure art. Our house has perfect temperature in every room.We were blown away by the team at Meade. They were the best contractor we have ever hired. I am so glad to support this business. They have a client for life. They also detected a gas leak from another contractor and for that we are forever grateful.Thank you all! We can't wait to see you in a few months for our spring checkup!

I received a flyer for a free safety inspection on our furnace. Ben came out and performed the inspection as well as a tune up. He caught a small water leak that he corrected free of charge. He was professional and knowledgeable and didn't try to upsell. We will be using them moving forward and recommend them above other HVAC providers we have used in the area. Give them a shot!

David answered my late night call and was able to get a technician out the following morning. After talking to him, i felt so much better. Mike came and determined we needed a new coil and came back once the part was received. Mike took the time to educate and answer all of our hvac questions. Even with covid going one, my issue was resolved pretty fast. I don’t write a lot of reviews but I received the best customer service I have ever received in my home. 100% would use them again and recommend to a friend.

Sigh....Our old A/C pooped out mid summer. After weighing options we took a shot with the guys from Meade's. They did not disappoint! Quality work on one of the hotter days of the year. The team was respectful of our home, time, and safety (masks on while inside). They are the real deal. We couldn't have asked for a better experience, and price! Thank you!!!

Ben and Dave did an excellent job installing our new furnace and air filter. Dave described to me all the improvements they made for us over our old system. The guys were professional, took care to protect our floors and keep the entire area clean. My wife especially likes the high quality air filter zapping any bacteria in the air making our air nearly as clean as a hospital. I especially like the extremely competitive price they gave us for a high quality system. Great job guys!! We definitely recommend Meade's Heating and Air!

We have known Ben for 15+ years since he was with his previous employer and we were in our previous residence. We found Ben always pleasant, professional, and trustworthy. Few months ago when we learned Ben co-founded Meade's in partnership with David (another pleasant professional), we reached out and discussed about a complete replacement of our aging heating and AC systems.As expected, the entire process went smoothly. We have confidence in Ben's recommendations and trust that the price Meade's quoted us was honest and reasonable. The installation started and finished on time. Both David and Ben checked in afterward and have since answered a few questions through emails in a very timely manner.Meade's is our go-to company for anything heating and AC. If you don't have one yet, we recommend you give Meade's a try.

I was referred to Meade's HVAC by a friend. Ben, David and Mike from Meade's HVAC did an excellent job over all. Ben visited on Saturday to check my old heatpump and by Tuesday COB, the new system was installed.They went above and beyond throught the installation process of my new heatpump. They all worked so professionally and as a team and their service is top notch quality. Most company come in only to replace inside air unit and outside compressor from my previous experiences. Not Meade's, these guys were extremely meticulous in their installation details. I would positively and most certainly recommend Meade's for any HVAC work.

Meade’s Heating & Air did an awesome job for us. Dave Snell has put together a great team along with Ben & Mike to problem solve, troubleshoot and sometimes when needed, cheerlead us through an unexpected HVAC failure in our new house, during one of the hottest summers ever! They were highly competitive in price with many other ND recommendations and got us up & running faster than anyone promised. We highly recommend Meade’s!

You won't find better HVAC professionals than Meade's!! They went above and beyond all the others. They not only replaced my entire system, but they were the only company to analyze and suggest improvement such as increasing airflow by widening the return box, rerouting drain lines to improve ease of access, and installing monitoring and safety equipment to keep my home protected. David and Ben are the best in the business!! They trust the same equipment in their home that they will install in yours and they install it as if it was going in their own home. Highly recommended!! 5 stars!! Trust Meade's with you HVAC needs!!

During one of the hottest stretches of the summer, our upstairs heat pump/AC finally bit the dust. After reading a neighbor’s recommendation, I contacted Meade’s. Ben arrived on time and carefully examined the system. I knew it wasn’t worth repairing, so I asked about replacing it. Ben presented us with some options, and discussed each one. We quickly arrived at a decision, and Ben walked through the financing application, which was quickly approved. Less than a week later, Ben and his crew - all polite and professional - installed our system, carefully cleaning up afterward. Our entire experience with Meade’s was top-notch and pleasant, and they have earned a loyal customer. Everything about the company and their employees is customer-friendly, and I recommend them for all of your HVAC needs.

I received estimates from several companies to replace my existing HVAC unit and also install a new unit and ducts in the attic. Meade's had the best prices and were the easiest to talk to about the project before I made a decision. When my existing HVAC broke 2 weeks before they were going to start the project, they were able to come the next day to get A/C back in my house during a heatwave. Meade's went above and beyond and I would recommend them to anyone!

Their service is top notch and it will really change your outlook on how a service business should be run. Trust them... you won’t be disappointed! Those are strong words to write if you don’t believe it, but I do and you will too! They did a full HVAC replacement for our home and I just don’t think we would have had the same wonderful outcome with anyone else.

I had an unbelievable experience with Meade’s! My AC unit gave out at the end of last summer and I put off replacing it for as long as possible. When it started getting hot this year Meade’s came through for me in a big way! While I waited for my scheduled install date, they provided me with a temporary/portable AC unit that brought a portion of my house down from 84 degrees to a cool 71.On the day of the install the technicians showed up on time and laid out protective floor coverings. The techs were well mannered, professional, and good with my dogs. They replaced my AC and furnace in half a day’s time and it is running perfectly!It was a breath of fresh air to work with Meade’s; I didn’t feel like they were trying to “pull one over” on me or up sell me on anything. I will absolutely be a customer for life.
