Filter Out Problems with Your HVAC System

The air filter in your HVAC system plays an important role in maintaining healthy indoor air quality. Air filters also help your HVAC system run efficiently, keeping your Palm Beach County home cool or warm as needed while also saving you money. How do you know which ones are the best HVAC filters for your home? Keep the following in mind when choosing a new air filter.

Air Filter Ratings

While choosing an air filter, you’ll come across certain terms that indicate how efficient it is and how effective it is at removing particles. The main term to keep in mind is the MERV rating. The Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) rating tells you how effective an air filter is at getting rid of a higher amount of particles. Higher MERV ratings mean an air filter does a better job at removing smaller particles in addition to larger ones.

Air Filter Types and Brands

Air filters are available in different types, including pleated filters, fiberglass filters, HEPA filters, and washable air filters.

  • Fiberglass filters are cost-effective, but they might not perform as well as other filters when it comes to boosting your indoor air quality.
  • HEPA filters are able to trap smaller particles, although they might cause added strain on your HVAC system.
  • Pleated filters can remove pet dander, dust particles, mold, and other harmful particles and allergens.
  • Washable air filters can be reused, but they’re prone to developing mold growth if they’re not properly washed and dried on a regular basis.

You’ll find several HVAC filter brands on the market. When you know which type is best for your home, you can narrow your search down to certain high-ranked brands. Some of the brands to keep in mind include AirX, Honeywell, Nordic Pure, FilterBuy, Filtrete, and Lennox. These brands make air filters, including ones that target allergens and ones that are recommended for people with asthma or other respiratory problems.
