16x24x1 Air Filter

Your home air filters are necessary for any and all air conditioner systems in order to make sure that passing air flow remains clean and healthy to breathe. 16x24x1 air filters match appropriate air conditioner systems and provide protection against incoming irritants that affect the air in your home. Filter King model filters consist of premium mesh weaving designed to trap and absorb passing irritants before they become a problem for the home. Your air filters prevent passing irritants from entering our ducts, but in turn they become dirty over time and require replacement.

16x24x1 Filter Use for Residential Homes

A residential home may face issues with air quality including a full range of household dust, debris, mold spores, pet dander, pollutants, allergens, and virus carriers. The air systems in your home are constantly bringing in air and without filtration, there is no telling what else is entering the ducts as well. The indoor air quality of your home relies on your filter’s efficiency, but it loses effectiveness over time as it becomes dirtier. Dirty air filters are a blockage in an HVAC system and create a series of complications that become worse over time.

When your home suffers from dirty air filters then the result is a blockage in the HVAC system that affects the home over time. A dirty air filter is so full of captured irritants that air flow begins to have issues passing through into the duct system. The lack of air flow for your home leads to the air inside stagnating and drying out. Old air is often uncomfortable and unhealthy to breathe in over long periods of time.

Air Filter Use for Apartments

Your apartment air systems need filtration to ensure that the more limited space provided remains comfortable to breathe in. The limited options available for air cycling mean that issues with irritants become more pronounced over time. Internal and external microparticles are able to remain in your home, causing breathing issues within various rooms. Without any air flow, particles like tobacco smoke, pet dander, or virus carriers are able to remain in a room and cover any open surfaces. Air flow prevents certain irritants from lingering and causing further issues.

Over time, the air filters for an apartments air system will become increasingly dirty like they would in any other HVAC system. The resulting lack of airflow leads to dry, stagnant air and lowered indoor air quality. The dirty filters also place a high burden on the HVAC system itself, forcing its parts to work harder to bypass the blockage. Over time, the system warps and degrades to a point where it may cause a costly breakdown.

16x24x1 Furnace Filter

The Filter King 16x24x1 size air filters are also able to fit into appropriate furnace heating systems to provide that system filter protection. The filters in a system will clean up the recently heated air flow before it goes to the blower fan for distribution. The air needs to flow forward without issue, because when it slows or even stops then temperatures in a home begin to fluctuate. The air heats to match the number on your thermostat, and when the furnace cannot release the air your home begins to lose degrees in temperature.

When a furnace filter blocks the passage of air, the results are inconvenient and may actually become dangerous. The heated air needs to leave the furnace or else it may cause a rise in temperature the system is otherwise incapable of handling. The various parts of the heating system may warp and strain, eventually requiring expensive replacement parts. Any costly furnace expenses are avoidable by installing a new filter that does not stop or slow any passing air flow.

Home Air Filter Changing Practices

Your air filters need regular maintenance or the results will be a burden on our home, its air systems and costs alike. When an air system suffers a blockage it will attempt to bypass the blockage by increasing the energy it uses to push the airflow through. This will strain the system, but the added spike in electrical usage will increase billing as well. The expenses only continue to rise over time, costing a home up to thousands of dollars annually if the problem is not fixed.

Filter King 16x24x1 filters are able to trap unwanted air particles letting cleaner air flow flows through for a finite amount of time. The time frame where the filters are most effective is gauged by taking its environment and MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating into account. Homes in areas with higher concentrations of pollution or allergens tend to go through filters at a faster rate. Said filters MERV ratings determine just how efficient they are at cleansing the air of any intruding particles and how many they are able to capture. The Filter King 16x24x1 home air filter ranks as an 8, 11, and 13 on the MERV scale and is able to trap unwanted air particles like:

  • Pollen
  • Household Dust
  • Mold Spores
  • Dust Mites
  • Bacteria
  • Pet Dander
  • Tobacco Smoke
  • Virus Carriers
