York Air Filters and Furnace Filters
Since it’s found in 1874, York has been an industry leader in improving air quality. In 1914, New York came out with an “air washing” system that is considered a precursor to the modern-day air conditioner air. Then in 1924 the first office building ever to have centralized air-conditioning utilized York products and equipment. Today, you can find York products heating and cooling homes across the United States. York products are also trusted and used in iconic buildings such as the Empire State Building, the U.S. Capitol building, and the Sydney Opera House.

How Filters Affect Your Health
You can keep your family safe and healthy when you choose high-quality air filters to use in your home. There are many reasons why you need to change your air filters regularly. The way filters work is that they block particles from passing through your air-conditioning unit and into the air that you breathe. By providing this barrier you benefit from fresher, healthier air to breathe. This is especially important in homes where one or more people have allergies or asthma.
The kind of particles that air filters can block are:
But all of these particles begin to collect over time. Filters are designed to allow for a certain amount of accumulation since that is their primary purpose. Unfortunately, if you go too long between changes, that accumulation turns into an impenetrable barrier that doesn’t allow for air to flow properly.
How Much Do Filters Cost?
Certainly a lot less than having to fix your furnace or air conditioning unit. Depending on the size of the filter you need and what works best for your home, a filter will cost anywhere between $20 to $60. Speak to your York air filters & furnace filters representative to find out what your exact cost will be.
Developing Better And Better Products
Furnaces were introduced to the market in 1935 as forced air heating systems. Other methods of heating homes were to use boilers or coal stoves, which were very problematic. The new invention worked by forcing air, through the use of fans, over burners in the system, and then out into your house. This meant having to think ahead about what challenges this new technology presented. The last thing anyone wants in the middle of winter is to have their furnace break down. Because dirt and other particles could damage the fan and other parts of the system, filters were introduced to block them. Then, in the 1940s, High-Efficiency Particulate Absorption (HEPA) filters were invented, but their technology was considered classified until after World War II. Consumers today benefit from the years of research and development that has gone into improving air filter and furnace filter technology.
