Chemical free, electrostatically charged synthetic polyester media is pleated, maximizing the surface area, to capture a high number of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns with low air flow resistance. To increase durability, the media is supported with a corrosion resistant steel wire.
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:

It's important to know when to change your air filter out for a new one. Over time, trapped particles can build up to block airflow and ruin the efficiency of your filter. Changing the old filter out for a new one regularly ensures that you maintain your home's air quality.
How often you have to replace a furnace filter usually depends on quality. Filter king air filters can last for up to three months before needing replacement. The most obvious signs that it’s time to get a new filter include:
The Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, or MERV rating of a filter, tells you what kind of contaminants a particular unit can remove from the air. The MERV rating is based on how tightly woven the fibers and strands inside a filter are. The tighter the weave, the smaller the particles a filter can capture.
In general, homes and other residential buildings need an air filter with a MERV rating between just 8 and 12. Higher-rated filters tend to need more frequent replacing, as they trap more particulate matter, and so may not be the most economical choice for homeowners.
Higher rated filters are reserved for commercial buildings where you might find pollutants that aren’t common in the home. You often see filters with MERV ratings of 13 to 16 used in manufacturing plants, hospitals, pharmacies, and more.
Filter King furnace air filters 16x25x4 come in a choice of MERV 8, 11, or 13, making them ideal for both residential and commercial use. Each filter is able to block different types of particles, so it's important to be aware of MERV ratings before choosing the right filter for your home.

They're a cost-effective way to improve indoor air quality. You can sometimes find 16x25x4 reusable air filter options with low MERV ratings to save on replacement costs.

Air filters with a MERV rating between 8 and 13 are the most common to be found in homes and certain commercial spaces. They filter media, including the most widespread allergens and irritants to keep air quality high.
The Filter King MERV 8 filter 16x25x4 can handle pollen, mold spores, and bacteria, as well as dust and dust mites. Going up to a higher MERV rating, the 16 x 25 x 4 MERV 11 can also filter out pet dander for homes with allergy sufferers.
At a minimum, MERV 8 filter can be appropriate for most residential homes. It can block up to 90% of airborne contaminants such as dust, mold, and pollen. Recommended for use in basic and standard homes and businesses.
MERV 11 filter is a mid-level filter, a step higher than MERV 8, and can remove a much higher percentage of contaminants including pet dander and allergens. Its recommended for homes with pets and people with mild allergies or anyone looking for further filtration.
In addition to filtering everything that MERV 11 filters can do, MERV 13 air filter can filter out smoke, smog, and virus carriers. MERV 13 provides the highest level of filtration and is suitable for homes with people that smoke, have severe allergies, asthma, and other respiratory issues.

Filters with a MERV rating between 14 and 20 offer the highest level of protection for indoor air quality. They're most often found in sterile commercial environments such as hospital wards or certain manufacturing units, as they block bacteria and virus particles.
It’s recommended that you change your air filter every one to three months as needed. With a Filter King air filter, you’ll typically get around three months of average use before needing a replacement. However, if you’re living with pets or someone with allergy, it may be best to replace it a little bit sooner.
The MERV rating that you pick will largely depend on what you want to filter out of your house. You want something with a high enough rating to filter out major irritants and airborne allergens, but not so high that you end up restricting airflow.
If you need an air filter for your home, you should look for those with a MERV rating of 8, 11 and 13. You don’t have to change or clean the filter as often as one with a higher MERV rating. If you are living with pets in the house or someone that has respiratory problems, then I recommend you look at MERV 11 or 13 ratings for better filtration.
