Is It Time to Change Your Air Filter?

Changing your 20x20x4 air filters regularly is essential to maintaining your HVAC system in good condition. Doing so will keep your energy bills low and the system working properly. Homeowners often forget to change their filters for months at a time, leading to maintenance problems and higher energy bills.

Many homeowners wonder how often they should change their 20x20x4 furnace filter or 20x20x4 air filter. A general rule of thumb is that air filters should be changed every 30 days when using inexpensive fiberglass filters. Premium pleated filters may last up to 6 months before needing to be changed depending on use.

There are signs you can look out for to determine if it's time to change your filter.

  • Low airflow: One of the major signs you need to change your ac filter 20x20x4 is low airflow from the vents. Clogged filters prevent air from passing through, so the output through the vents is lower. Changing your filter should restore proper airflow.
  • Dirt or dust accumulation around air vents: clogged air filters may release dirt and contaminants into your HVAC system, which are sometimes expelled through the vents. If you notice dirt around your vents, it may be time to change your filters.
  • Substantial increase in energy bill: A dirty or clogged air filter will cause your HVAC system to work harder to maintain the temperature in your home. If your energy bill increases without explanation, it would be a good idea to check your filters.
  • The filter appears dirty or damaged: You can often determine whether you need to change your filter by visually inspecting it. A damaged filter or a filter covered with dirt, debris or dust, should be changed immediately.
  • Allergies worsen: If you notice you're sneezing or coughing more often than normal, a dirty air filter could be to blame. Changing your air filter will help you determine if it's behind your worsening allergy symptoms.

MERV Rating: Which Should You Use?

MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. It measures how efficiently an air filter removes airborne pollutants. MERV ratings range between 1 and 20, with 1 providing the least amount of filtration and 20 the highest.

You may think the higher the rating, the better, but that's not necessarily true. The higher the MERV rating, the thicker the filter. A thick filter will force your HVAC system to work harder to circulate air throughout your home, resulting in higher energy bills.

4-6 Rating: Recommended For Industrial Workplaces

Removes Pollen, dust mites, carpet and clothing fibers, cockroach waste, cement dust, hairspray, powders, etc.

20x20x4 air filters with a MERV rating from 4 to 6 work best in medium to heavily trafficked industrial and commercial workplaces. These filters removed large airborne particles that could damage your HVAC system.

They also filter most dust, lint, depending on the MERV rating chosen. Air filters with a MERV rating of 6 are much more effective than regular inexpensive fiberglass filters. At this level, the filter will remove large particles such as dirt, debris, and lints.

8-13 Rating: Recommended For Home Use

Removes Lead dust, Legionella bacteria, milled flour, welding fumes, dust from humidifiers and nebulizers, coal exhaust, smog.

Air filters with a MERV rating from 8 to 13 more effectively filter your air than less expensive lower-rated filters. The higher the rating, the cleaner the air in your home. For better protection against airborne contaminants and high air quality, this category is recommended.

If you or a family member suffers from allergies, you should consider investing in a 20x20x4 air filter with a MERV rating between 11 and 13 to ease your symptoms. At lower ratings, particles such as pet dander, fine dust, and pollen may slip through your filter. A filter rated between 11 to 13 will adequately remove most allergens from your home's air.

In addition to removing common pollutants such as dust, pollen, lint, and mold, a 20x20x4 air filter MERV 11 rating filter’s enhanced filtration efficiency allows it to remove smoke, smog, coughing, and sneezing particles, and pet dander.

20x20x4 furnace filters and air filters rated MERV 13 are the best overall filter you can buy for use in a residential air conditioner or furnace. At this rating, air filters effectively capture and remove a high range of particles, including bacteria, smoke, and some viruses. If you or a loved one are illness prone and need a clean, sterile environment, a MERV 13 rated air filter is worth considering.

14-20 Rating: Recommended For Hospital & Laboratories

Removes: Bacteria and viruses, sneeze and coughing droplets auto emissions and fumes, tobacco smoke, insecticide dust, face powder, microns, radon, carbon dust, salt, combustion emissions, dust lint, etc.

Air filters at this level are primarily used in facilities where airborne contaminants must be eliminated, such as hospitals and laboratories. They are not recommended for residential use because they restrict airflow, and most residential HVAC systems are not equipped to handle them.
