How long will my filters last?

The filter will need to be refilled every 3-6 months (depending on use) or approximately 500 cycle hours (whichever comes first). You will know it is time to change your filter when you notice an odor, this will not affect the ability of the machine. Carbon refill stations will be offered throughout the city, free refills will be available for those in need.
