We write a lot about furnace filters because it’s an important responsibility for tenants to understand. Changing out filters regularly eliminates 90% of the maintenance issues that may occur. You don’t want to be financially responsible for a major repair or replacement when a simple furnace filter change would have prevented the problem.
However, we understand that in a few homes, the air intake, where the filter goes, is too high for some tenants to reach, even with a ladder. In these cases, find a neighbor, friend, family member or church associate to change the filter. As a last resort, we will do it for you but we will need to charge a fee for our time. Much better to get to know your neighbors and have one of them do it for you.
