The average home needs air filters in order to make sure that the air coming inside does not bring any harmful particles as well. Our premium 14x20x1 size filter is able to fit into HVAC and heating systems alike to cleanse out incoming airflow. Once installed, the air filters tight mesh weaving is able to trap and absorb passing airflow before it affects the rest of an air system. Fresh airflow is let through a clean filter, but the particles it blocks eventually begin to build up and require replacement. Eventually, a dirty air filter becomes a blockage in the system leading to costly issues that are avoidable by installing new ones.
The air system for your home does not automatically come in that way, it is filtered first before distribution. The home’s environment determines just how much filtration is needed, with some areas facing high levels of pollutants or allergens. Air filters prevent indoor air quality from lowering due to incoming irritants from the outside of your home. The longer your filter is in place, the dirtier it becomes over time and the more problems that result. The home needs clean air filters so that airflow coming in is not interrupted or blocked entirely. When new air is unable to cycle in, then your home may have issues with stagnation that may lead to the development of breathing problems.
The air system for an apartment is particularly important due to the smaller space and required airflow from the system. When the air filter for an apartment is dirty, then the resulting lack of airflow is both uncomfortable and possibly dangerous. Airflow works to bring in fresh air as much as it helps by cycling old air out. For apartments with resident smokers or pets, smoke and dander are airborne particles that are best filtered out of the air before they have a chance to settle. New, clean air filters prevent problems by filtering air effectively while also letting airflow pass without any problems.
The furnace filters for your home are used to clean up heated airflow before it enters a duct system. The heating system works by having fresh air pumped into the furnace before it is heated, the air then travels through your filter before distribution. When a heating system lacks filters, then the ducts in your home may quickly begin to fill up with particles like dust and debris. Air filters protect your home and the air system, but they require consistent replacement in order prevent costly issues.
When the furnace filters in a system are dirty, then the problems that result are inconvenient and possibly even dangerous. Dirty filters mean blocked airflow, which is even more of a problem when the airflow is being consistently heated. your home’s temperatures from room to room fluctuate when the heating system cannot push its airflow forward. Filter blocks become dangerous when the furnace begins to cause a spike of temperature over time. When the furnace becomes too hot the damage could be severe, leading to a possible system shutdown.
Air filters need consistent maintenance in order to make sure that your system is working at its full potential. The rate of replacement is more accurately gauged by taking your home’s environment and the filter’s MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating into account. Home’s in areas or with residents that produce harmful particles are more likely to cause air filters to last less time. The filter’s ability to block out particles is determined by its MERV rating, where the mesh weaving is rated based on efficiency.
Our 14x20x1 size model filter is capable of blocking out a range of different air particles only microns in size. Filter King Premium filters rank as an 8 on the MERV scale, meaning that they block out particles while still allowing airflow efficiently pass. Our air filters are able to block out intruding or problematic particles including:
