How To Choose The Right Furnace Filter For Your Family
Feb 2nd 2021
Regularly changing your furnace filter is vital to the health of your family and your indoor air quality. With our large selection of sizes and types of filters, you may be overwhelmed when looking to purchase the right air filter. These options exist to meet specific air quality needs as well as fit many of the top HVAC systems. Here are a few important factors to consider when choosing the right air filter for your home:
What type of HVAC unit does your home have?
You will need to know what type of HVAC unit you have. Recent modern and high-efficiency units will require different air filter sizes than older units do. Look at the brand, model number, and size of your existing filter before shopping for a replacement.
What allergies or medical requirements does your family have?
Do you have family members that suffer from asthma, allergies, or respiratory conditions? If so, you will want a higher level of filtration. Check our filter types that offer superior performance to keep everyone healthy in your household.
What climate do you live in?
If you live in a humid climate, mold and mildew may be problems you experience. Living in drastically hot or cold climates might mean you run your HVAC system more than those that are in temperate areas. This might require you to replace your filter more frequently.
What type of air conditions do you live in?
Living in a heavily polluted area compared to rural areas where the air is clean and fresh can drastically change the quality of your outdoor air quality. This can have a big impact on the efficiency rating requirements on your filter.
Do you have pets?
We love our furry friends, but they can come with hair and pet dander that can spread throughout your home. This can make the air in your home harder to breath. If you have pets, you will want to look at filters that are specifically designed to filter out pet particles.
