The air filters in your home are essential parts of the system and clean up incoming airflow. The air pumped in by an air system is not always healthy to breathe, the air surrounding your home is often full of harmful irritants. Filter King 12x24x1 size air filters match the average air system and used to keep incoming airflow from creating any problems with the corresponding air system. The 12x24x1 air filters themselves consist of a tight mesh weaving that traps and absorbs passing irritants in the airflow. The filter will continue to clean incoming airflow until the point where it is completely covered in captured particles. A dirty filter becomes a problem in an air system, meaning that maintenance becomes necessary before the problems begin to spread.
The average home has its fair share of irritants traveling through the air systems. Your filters prevent any problems by blocking out dust, debris, pollutants and allergens alike. Many of the irritants that ride along airflow are harmful to the lungs, the irritants are also able to trigger allergies or other severe reactions. The air filters prevent airborne irritants from spreading but can only do so until they become too dirty to properly work anymore. Dirty air filters still block airborne problems, along with the rest of the air that your home is going to need.
A dirty air filter makes it very difficult for airflow to pass by into the ducts of your home. While irritants cannot pass, the lack of fresh air will become more and more noticeable over time. Your home needs its air cycled before it begins to dry out and stagnate, because old air leads to lower indoor air quality. Fresh air filters let airflow through without an issue and prevent the air quality from lowering, from either stagnation or from intruding irritants.
When it comes to your apartment it becomes more important than ever to ensure clean airflow because of the limited space. Your apartment air filters will clean out incoming air and prevent the particles already inside from causing further problems. Irritants like smoke particles and pet dander have the tendency to stick to whatever surface they land on whenever they are not cycled out of a room’s air. Your home is much more comfortable when the harmful particles cycle out in airflow, before being trapped and absorbed. The capturing process does not happen as effectively with old, ineffective air filters. New 12x24x1 air filters are clean enough to allow air to cycle while also keeping irritants from passing along to other rooms and continue causing problems.
Air filters that work for HVAC systems also fit in furnace systems, cleaning the heated airflow passing by to reach your home ducts. Furnace filters are in between where the air heats up and where the blower fan used to distribute it throughout your home. The air filters become dirtier over time and because the air heats up before filtration this becomes a serious problem. A dirty air filter is a blockage in a system which damaging and dangerous to a furnace when heated air is unable to pass.
When your furnace filters become dirty, then the blockage they create stop airflow from passing through. In other air systems a blockage leads to stagnant air and lower indoor air quality, for a furnace the effects are much worse. When airflow is unable to leave the furnace, then the result is an increase in temperatures that the machinery may be unable handle. The furnaces parts may become damaged beyond repair, new parts are costly and unnecessary when a new filter solves the problem at a fraction of the price.
You will need new filters over time to prevent any blockages or issues from developing in an air system. How often your 12x24x1 air filters will need replacing is often dependent on your home’s environment and the filters MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating. Home’s with resident smokers or pets often need air filters to prevent the resulting particles from spreading throughout its rooms. Areas with high levels of pollution or vegetation often require homes with more efficient filters to prevent the spread of harmful irritants, allergens and mold.
12x24x1 air filter efficiency ranks on the MERV rating system, its number being the result of various measurements. The tight mesh weaving of your filter ranks on the scale and that ranking shows what particles it is able to capture. Filter King 12x24x1 filters rank as an eight on the MERV scale, which means basic irritants are unable to pass along with other particles including:
When you need to install a new filter, then the process only takes a few steps and some time. The location of the air filter is in the air system owner’s manual, once found and removed you can find the size along the cardboard edge. The new air filter should come in a similar size, in this case 12x24x1, and from there it is easily installed into the system. The old filter goes into a sealed bag or container to prevent the particles from re-releasing, and you enjoy the resulting fresh, clean air.
