How Often to Change Your 16x30x1 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.
16x30x1 Air Filter
The HVAC system in your home needs filtration or the air flow coming in may also contain some harmful irritants. A 16x30x1 air filter will be able to fit into the average filter and provide your home with a layer of protection against airborne particles trying to float in. When your home lacks air filters, the resulting inflow of particles may make your home uncomfortable or unsafe. Your air filters will be able to protect your HVAC system against irritants but in the process become dirty themselves. Over time, dirty air conditioner filters begin to create issues themselves and require replacement before the problems become too evident in a home.
16x30x1 Air Filter for Residential Homes
When air flow coming into a home is not filtered, this presents a problem for residents and the home’s indoor air quality. Your air filters consist of a tight mesh weaving that traps and absorbs passing air particles like mold spores, household dust, dust mite debris, pollen pet dander, etc from the air passing through it. When a home is not protected, then irritants like allergens and pollutants are able to float inside with no issue. Your air conditioner filters keep the incoming air flow clean, in turn protecting your duct system and your home. When your air filters become dirty, they become a problem that becomes worse over time.
The airflow in a home needs to travel through the filters without issue or the old air will be unable to cycle out of your home. The dirty filter in a system will create a blockage that stops airflow and continuously causes problems over time. The air in a home dries out and becomes less healthy to breathe over time when not cycled out for new air. Air quality lowers and costs rise when you do not replace your air filters.
16x30x1 Air Filter for Apartments
Your apartment is going to need new air filters to help ensure that the limited space available remains comfortable. The irritants that are able to lower your apartments air quality may come from inside your home as well. Apartments with resident smokers or pets needs to make sure that the resulting air particles do not cling to any open surfaces. New 16x30x1 size air filters will ensure incoming air and prevent certain air system problems from becoming worse.
Over time, dirty air filters will cause the air quality of your apartment to dip and costs to rise. When an air system has a problem with blockage, your system is then forced to use additional energy in order to push airflow forward. The resulting spike in energy will also increase your home’s billing and continue increasing over time. Dirty air filters in a system may cost you thousands of dollars over the course of the year.
16x30x1 Furnace Filter
Your air filters are usable for furnace systems as well, fitting in between where the air distributes throughout a system and where it heats up. The heating system needs filtration in order to prevent the ducts or the home from suffering the effects of incoming dirt and debris. Your 16x30x1 furnace filters are able to prevent incoming irritants from passing but when they become dirty it is a more serious issue. Dirty furnace filters block heated airflow which brings more problems than just stagnant and dried out air.
The furnace filters present a serious problem for your furnace system when they become dirty over time. The best-case scenario for dirty furnace filters is a fluctuation in-home temperatures between rooms, because of the lack of heated airflow. In the worst-case scenario, the heated airflow becomes blocked off entirely and causes a buildup in the furnace systems internal temperatures. Your furnace may be unable to handle the extreme heat and the resulting damages are usually very costly to a home.
Air Filter Changing Practices
Your air conditioner filters need periodic replacement or the resulting problems only become worse over time. Complications with billing and replacement costs are usually among the worst problems that develop from having dirty filters. The spike electrical power your systems are using may cost you up to thousands of dollars a year. Your air systems will also suffer from wear down over time with the many mechanical parts eventually requiring repairs or replacement. All of which are avoidable costs when you install a new air filter.
Your air filters need regular replacement on a schedule that is usually mandated by your home’s environment and your filters MERV rating. Homes in places with high levels of dirt, debris, molds, allergens, and pollution often got through their filters at a faster rate. Your filter's ability to block out irritants such as mold spores, household dust, dust mite debris, pollen pet dander, etc, and in turn become dirty, ranks it on the MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) scale.
Filter King 16x30x1 size filters rank as an eight on the MERV scale and are capable of blocking out irritants like:
- Pet Dander
- Household Dust
- Mold Spores
- Dust Mites
