Home Air Filters

Home air filters are important not only to keep the equipment they are running on in good condition, but also the people occupying the building in good condition -- or in good health. Home air purifier filters, home furnace air filters, home air condition filters, home central air conditioner filters, and home room air conditioner filters are all important to keep clean. To help you determine the best air filter for the equipment you are working with, check out the ratings on home air filters. Clean air is an important element of good health.

How much thought have you given to the air filter in your heating or air conditioning system? Choosing the right filter to do the job that you need it to do is very important. There is a big price range on most home air filters and most people automatically reach for the cheapest one. Do not fall into this trap. You could be doing harm to your heating and air system or your air purifier, as well as your health by buying an inferior home air filter. There are a few things that you need to consider before purchasing an air filter.

What kind of system are you going to use it in? There are many different types of filters. These include home furnace air filters, home air conditioning air filters (central air and window air conditioners), and home air purifier filters, as well as others. When you go into the store to purchase your air filter you need to know what kind of filter you need and what size. There are other things to consider, too.

Home air filters come in three basic types. The least expensive ones are composed of fiberglass layers, but they do not work as well as other kinds. Pleated air filters work slightly better because of the larger surface area. Electrostatic air filters help to attract dirt, pollen, and other pollutants to the air filter to help keep it out of the air that you breathe.

If you or a member of your family suffers from allergies or asthma, then you will want to find a filter that can help filter out pollutants like dust, mold, bacteria, or pollen. There are different ratings on home air filters which can help you determine what filter is best for your home and your needs. This rating is called a MERV (Minimum Efficiency Rate Value). A higher MERV rating means that it can capture a higher percentage of contaminants in your air. Ratings range from 1 to 12, so choose your house air filter wisely for your needs.

Changing your home air condition filters or home furnace air filters regularly is very important. It not only has health benefits by removing contaminants from the air that you breathe, but also it can help your home central air system work more efficiently and can cut your electric bills too. That is why it is so important to set a date that you are going to change out your filters so that you can keep the maintenance on a schedule. Keep a few extra air filters on hand so that you will not be caught without one when you need it.

Air filters are an essential part of your heating or air conditioning system. Without the filter, or if the filter is clogged and dirty, your system cannot work efficiently because it has to work too hard to pull air in and out of the system. It can also increase your electricity costs, as well as causing possible health problems. With a little research, you will find an air filter that meets your needs.
