Your AirDoctor will alert you with a light on the front panel when it’s time to replace the UltraHEPA or Carbon filters.

2. Filter Maintenance

AirDoctor requires minimal upkeep. The pre-filter, the first one visible when you open AirDoctor’s filter covers, should be vacuumed every couple of months.

This keeps your unit’s air output fresh and prolongs the lifespan of the carbon and Ultra HEPA filters, which should be replaced and not cleaned. The filter replacement timeline for the models based on 24/7 use and average air quality homes is the same as in point 1.

Note: In the AD1000 model, the pre-filter is attached to the Ultra HEPA filter, and in the AD2000,AD3000,AD5500 it’s attached to the carbon filter.
