Are Expensive Air Filters Worth It?
Your home should be a place to relax and breathe easy, and air filters are the tools to help make it just that. Your home air filter blocks out the airborne issues a ventilation system may pump in from the outside. We provide filters in several sizes, and different qualities to match the average home budget. Our standard model filter is capable of blocking out the regular dirt and debris floating in the air. However, our high quality premium filters come recommended due to their ability in keeping your home fresh and clean.
MERV Ratings and Home Freshness
The MERV, or Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, rating system shows you just how efficient a filter is at trapping and absorbing particles. Filters with higher MERV ratings have a tighter mesh weave that block smaller and smaller particles. Our standard air filter model is an 8 on the MERV scale, meaning it can keep the basic dirt and debris from entering your home. Our premium filter is an 11 on the MERV scale and is capable of blocking out:
- Dust Mites
- Pet Dander
The airflow in your home is the direct path the air follows through a duct system and the filters to enter various rooms. When the MERV rating of a filter is too high, then the mesh weave actually begins to constrict airflow. The average home benefits from having a filter with a high enough rating to block out airborne problems but not so high as to cause airflow complications. Our premium filter hits just the right notes and provides protection without any ventilation blockage.
Replacement, High Quality Filters
High quality, expensive filters protect your home, but all the dirt and debris they block cause them to become dirtier faster. A filter needs to consistently replacement or there may be problems with airflow and filter effectiveness. The cheaper replacement filters may seem to be the better choice but the indoor quality of your home will suffer. Expensive filters may seem like a luxury but their role is too important to settle for lesser quality filters.
Benefits of New Filters
The air filters you use play a vital role in ensuring that the air in your home stays safe and comfortable to breathe in. An air system needs filtration, especially in areas with high levels of pollutants or allergens. When someone breathes in the wrong air particle, then that could trigger breathing complications like asthma or a severe case if allergies. You want to make sure that your home does not present any sort of hazard to its residents and higher priced filters offer greater protection.
The air quality in your home is vital to the development of breathing issues for adults and children alike. If a filter goes for too long without replacement, then the resulting effects on airflow prevent fresh air from coming in. The air your home’s rooms fluctuate in quality and temperature, often becoming stagnant, too cold, too hot, or filled with floating dust. You can prevent airflow difficulties with new filters and even save along the way.
New Filter Savings
The effects of a blocked filter go beyond just causing issues with airflow, they also cause billing prices to rise. When a filter blocks the airflow, then the system needs to work around the problem by increasing its energy output. Energy spikes in a system will eventually find their way onto your billing at the end of the month. New filters prevent additional billing over time by letting air pass through them with the minimum airflow required.
