How Much Do Air Filters Cost?

how much do air filters cost

Air filters are essential parts of an air system and keep your home smelling fresh, clean, and safe to breathe. The filters you use vary and change to match your home and the needs of your air systems. The costs you are going to need to pay are equivalent to the service and product you receive, and we aim to be as affordable as possible. We keep your finances in mind as we offer filters to help keep you breathing easy in your home.

Quality of Your Filters Matter

When purchasing filters, the quality of those you choose to plays a large part in keeping the air in your home fresh and safe. Higher MERV rated (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) filters are more expensive, their tightened weave and materials being more valuable. High rated filters provide quality protection against allergens and pollutants. The air around your home may have airborne problems that emphasize the importance of air system filtration.

Areas with high levels of pollution, dander or pollen often lead to triggering or development of breathing issues and allergies. When air filter quality is low, then the indoor air quality of your home will be low as well. Poor indoor air quality can be inconvenient as well as possibly dangerous for your home’s residents.

When you purchase a new air filter, you have options to better fit the budget you are on. The standard air filter is affordable, useful, and has solid lasting potential, but our recommended option is the premium model. Filter King Premium filters slightly more expensive but balance price and protection. Both filters match budgetary needs while also have MERV values that provide adequate protection for your home.

Your Filter MERV Ratings

The Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) system the calculated system used to measure filter efficiency. Higher ranked filters offer more protection but also cause airflow issues and are more expensive. Whole house air filters strike a balance of protection and affordability with more centered ratings.

The Filter King standard air filter rates as an 8 and offers basic protection for an air system. The recommended premium filters rank as 11. It helps remove contaminants and offers protection against allergens, dust, pollen. The premium filter MERV ranking makes it ideal for parents and pet owners, especially in areas with high levels of allergens or pollution.

Air Filter Replacement Costs

Filters do not last forever, especially those with high MERV values that absorb and trap a large amount of airborne contaminants.  Your home needs periodic air filter replacement or else they may develop issues. Your filters become dirtier over time and the layers of dirt and debris soon cover the holes between the weaved air filter mesh. A dirty filter may cost you more over time; it is more cost efficient to buy a new one and enjoy the benefits.


After an air filter becomes dirty, then the resulting blockage that it causes results in complications with a systems airflow. The air system will need to try and push the air flow forward past the blockage, it will try by using more energy. An air system spiking in energy use will end up adding to your energy bills, and continue to do so over time. Your heating and cooling system needs maintenance, which in turn fixes filter problems with blockage.
