Air Filtration 101 - Why Should you Upgrade?

Did you Know?

The purpose of an Air Filter inside your heating and Air Conditioner is to protect the HVAC equipment, not necessarily there to improve air quality. With today’s advancements, this is no longer the case with high-efficiency media air filters. 

Air filters are based on their (MERV) rating.  (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value). The higher the MERV rating the better the filter media. Not only does this remove more pollen, dirt, dust, etc…. But also reduces potential airflow.  To combat this issue, Filter companies Increased the size of the filter from 1” up to 4” for residential applications. In a simpler version, the higher Merv rated filters (11-16 Merv) Come standard in a 4” Filter. This filter needs a special “Filter box to work in residential Heating systems,

4” Carbon Media Air Filter

Not only is it effective in reducing household dust, mold, and other allergens, carbon filter technology absorbs more odors and Volatile Organic Compounds than traditional filter media.

A carbon media air cleaner cabinet is designed to capture a significant amount of airborne particles. The cabinets are sold with MERV 13 carbon filter media. Carbon media filter cabinets can be installed in all forced warm air furnaces and cooling systems up to 5 tons. Oh and did we mention, This Filter lasts 6 months to 12 months depending on use. Win-Win!
