Air filtration is an essential part of your home’s air system, keeping the ducts clean of any intruding irritants entering via airflow. When air comes into your home it is not always the cleanest, it may carry any number of harmful particles. Our CCC size filters match your air system and provide protection by trapping and absorbing particles traveling in passing airflow. The filter’s mesh weaving captures all the particles that it can, before inevitably becoming covered in the dust and debris. A dirty filter becomes a problem where, if not replaced or cleaned, the connected system and home will become affected by the lack of airflow.
Your home may be in an area full range of irritants like dust, debris pollutants and allergens capable of entering via airflow. Many of airborne irritants are unhealthy to breathe in, usually causing the development of issues with the lungs or triggering allergies. The air filters keep the irritants out of a duct system, the mesh weaving capturing the particles while letting the fresh, clean air pass. Over time, the filters become so covered in particles that the mesh becomes full and airflow is unable to pass. Dirty filters still keep irritants out, but they also keep any necessary airflow out as well.
The dirtier an air filter is, the more difficult it is for airflow to pass through into the duct system. Over time, the lack of incoming airflow will become more noticeable as the indoor air quality begins to lower. The air in your home begins to dry out and stagnate over time, becoming uncomfortable and unhealthy to breathe. The air system also tries to compensate for the lack of airflow by increasing the power its machinery uses, causing energy billing to rise.
Your apartment has limited airflow options due to the small space, which makes every breath of fresh air important. Your air filters will keep the air cycling through the system clean and fresh, free of particles coming from the outside or the inside of your home. Particles like allergens and pollutants come from the incoming airflow and become filtered out as fresh air comes in.
Irritants like smoke or pet dander often originate from the inside of your apartment and can stick to whatever open surface they can. Filters keep airflow clean and old air cycles out removing floating particles that may otherwise become a problem for your apartment. New air filters allow the airflow to pass by without any complications for the apartment air quality.
The filters that work in HVAC systems also work in heating systems like furnaces, cleaning out the passing heated air before it enters the ducts. As the air heats up, it passes through the filter out to the blower before distribution into the duct system. Your home enjoys fresh, warmed air while the filter becomes dirtier over time. Eventually, the filter becomes a blockage in the system, which is a serious problem for furnaces. The heated air is stuck in place while the extreme temperatures become hotter than the machinery is able to handle.
The blockage of airflow for a furnace is a dangerous, costly problem that only grows worse over time. The heated airflow warms your home, without it temperatures fluctuate room to room. If the blockage is not fixed, then the temperatures will rise in the furnace itself and increase the wear down on the machinery which may cause a total system failure. New furnace parts are a costly investment, it is much cheaper to buy new filters that allow airflow to pass while keeping the system clean.
Your home needs new filters are needed over time to prevent airborne issues from developing. The amount of maintenance an air systems filters will need often depends on filter efficiency and home environment. The home environment refers to external factors like pollution and allergens, or internal ones like resident smokers or pets. Home’s that face high amounts of airborne issues needs more frequent maintenance, which ties into their MERV rating and efficiency.
The mesh weaving of your 14x24x1 air filter is measured so that the filter is properly ranked on the MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) scale. The tighter the weave, the higher the ranking, and the more difficult it is for airflow to pass through. Your home needs air filters with more balanced rankings to provide both affordability and protection. Filter King 14x24x1 filters rank as an 8 on the MERV scale, protecting air systems against particles including:
New filter installation is an easy process that requires a few simple steps and only some of your time. The filter’s locations is in the owner’s manual, which details where it is and how to remove it. The old filter’s size is printed along its cardboard edge, in this case it should read 14x24x1, and the new filter should match the size to fit in the system. The old filters needs to go in a sealed bag or container to prevent the captured particles from returning to the air. Once the new filter is installed your home will be able to enjoy incoming fresh airflow.
