Furnace Filters

It’s important to regularly change your furnace filter to ensure optimal performance of your heating system and to purify the air in your home. There are a variety of furnace filters available on the market, so it’s important to choose the right one for your needs. Here is a guide to help you make the best decision for your home.

What Size of Filter Do You Need?

The first thing you need to consider is the size of your furnace. Make sure to measure the width, height and depth of your furnace so you can purchase a filter that will fit properly.

There are two basic types of furnace filters: pleated and flat. Pleated filters have more surface area than flat filters, which means they can capture more airborne particles. However, they also require more frequent changing than flat filters.

Flat furnace filters are less expensive and easier to install, but they don’t last as long as pleated filters.

MERV Ratings

The type of filter you choose will also depend on the level of air purification you need. If you have allergies or asthma, you’ll want to choose a filter with a higher MERV rating. MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value and it indicates the size of particles that a filter can remove from the air.

The higher the MERV rating, the more effective the filter will be at trapping airborne particles. However, filters with high MERV ratings can also restrict air flow, so it’s important to choose one that has the right balance of performance and efficiency.
