How Often to Change Your 16x16x1 Air Filter?
Filter King AC & furnace filters aren’t the typical fiberglass filters that need to be replaced every 30 days. Our filters can typically be used for 3 to 5 months before requiring to be changed. Naturally, a variety of things influence filter lifespan.
Some of the factors that influence your filter’s life include outdoor air quality, whether pets are in the home, and how well your HVAC system is maintained.
Your air filter becomes clogged over time by trapped particles, preventing airflow. The efficiency of the HVAC filter declines. Your system must work harder to heat and cool your home. The extra strain on the HVAC system causes higher energy bills. Regular home air filter replacements can prevent expensive system repairs or replacements down the road.
You should change your filter more frequently if you notice:
- Household dust build-up
- The air isn’t cooling as is used to
- There’s more dust near the air vents
- A dirty filter surface
- Higher energy bills
- Burning smells near your HVAC system.
16x16x1 Air Filter
Filter King offers premium 16x16x1 size air filters to provide the air conditioner systems in your home with an important layer of protection. Our air filters consist of tight mesh weaving that is ergonomically designed to trap and absorb small and large airborne particles in passing airflow. Your air filters are necessary in order to protect the air quality inside your home from irritants. The pleated air filters are able to keep your home clean, but in the process, they will become dirtier over time. Dirty air filters become a large issue the longer they go without maintenance, which means that a new 16x16x1 filter will need periodic installation.
16x16x1 Filter Use for Residential Homes
A residential home's HVAC system will constantly pump in air from the outside, and while fresh, this air is not necessarily clean. The air around your home may be full of any number of irritants like pollutants and allergens. Without your pleated air filter, the indoor air quality of your home is in danger of dipping to uncomfortable or unsafe levels. The small particles that are able to enter your home are capable of causing the development or triggering of breathing issues. Pleated air filters are able to block out irritants but create complications for your home themselves when they start blocking airflow.
The air filters in your home need to be clean or the resulting lack of airflow will cause air quality to lower over time. The old air in your home needs to flow back out through your air conditioner systems or it will begin to dry out and stagnate. Your home much less comfortable when there are problems with the air, and breathing issues may even start to develop. New air filters will allow proper air flow without issue and keep the air inside your home smelling fresh.
Filter Use for Apartments
Your apartment has fewer options than a residential home when it comes to incoming airflow. The limited space available makes every breath of air count, meaning that it is in your best interest to ensure high indoor air quality. The air pumped in by your various systems does not just enter one room and leave either, airflow travels throughout your ducts and into different rooms. Filtration prevents certain small particles like tobacco smoke or pet dander from traveling but when they become dirty the particles stay in place.
Airflow causes certain particles to float into the ducts where they become trapped or absorbed by your air filters tight mesh weaving. When the particles do not leave the room, they tend to instead cling to whatever surface they are able to. The resulting layer of particles covering a room makes cleaning much more difficult and the home much less comfortable to live in.
16x16x1 Furnace Filter
Your 16x16x1 furnace filters are also able to fit into the average furnace heating as well to protect your ducts against incoming irritants. The pleated air filter will go in between the area where the incoming airflow heats up and where the blower fan will distribute it throughout your duct system. The airflow going through the air filter becomes clean and the ducts afterward are not filled with dirt or debris that may have otherwise begun building up. Dirty furnace filters become an issue as they would in any other HVAC system, but they also bring certain complications that demand immediate attention.
Your furnace system heats up incoming airflow before the blower fan sends through the ducts and into the accompanying rooms. Dirty furnace filters mean blocked airflow, meaning that these rooms begin to fluctuate in temperature when not heated. When heated airflow becomes blocked there may also be a rise in temperatures that the system may not be able to properly handle. The extreme temperatures are able to severely warp and damage the system, which will require some costly repairs.
16x16x1 Air Filter Changing Practices
The pleated air filters in your home need regular replacement, or they will become dirty and start causing some serious problems. The airflow in your home cannot stop or become blocked or the system will try to force the airflow past the blockage. The subsequent increase in energy usage raises billing and wears down the various mechanical parts involved. You may see your energy costs rises by thousands of dollars annually, not to mention the costs of part repair and replacement.
The replacement rate of your pleated air filters is usually tied to your home’s environment and your filter’s MERV ratings (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value). Your home may is usually surrounded by any number of allergens, pollutants, pet dander, mold spores, household dust, tobacco smoke, and debris. Depending on your filter’s MERV rating, it will be able to block all kinds of irritants and in the process become dirty faster. Filter King 16x16x1 size air filters are able to block out irritants microns in size, including:
- Household Dust
- Mold Spores
- Dust Mites
- Pet Dander
- Tobacco Smoke
