This way, you can rest assured that your heating and cooling systems will always work properly! In this week’s DIY Minute Maintenance Tips series, we’re going to teach you how to replace your air filters.

2. Gently remove the filter by sliding it out
3. To replace your filter, gently slide it in with the direction of the air flow going toward your furnace
4. Once you’ve correctly replaced your air filter, replace the air filter cover plate
