Most manufacturers of floorcare products have instructions on when to change vacuum cleaner bags and vacuum filters. In general, to make the most of your vacuum, change the bag monthly. The belt and HEPA filter should be changed every six months to work effectively. Check these things often if you tend to "put a lot of miles" on your vacuum. If you are a person with allergies and must clean often or live in an active household where vacuuming is a constant activity, you may have to modify the time frames in which you change the belt and bags. It might have to be more often, so simply pay attention to the suction power and check the belt regularly.
