When an air system needs protection, then a filter installation is necessary to prevent dust and debris issues from overwhelming the system. HVAC and furnace systems alike use 14x25x1 air filter size air filters as valuable barriers between your home and the outdoors. Air passing through filtration has any accompanying particles trapped and absorbed in the tight mesh weaving. Over time, the stopped particles will begin to build up and fill in the mesh’s open spaces until the filter becomes a blockage. Air filter maintenance is important to ensure that the problems that come with dirty filters do not severely harm your home.
The indoor air quality of the average residential home depends on a steady cycle of fresh, incoming airflow. The new air comes in, replaces the old, and this repeats until the filter is too dirty to continue. When the filter is dirty, then that causes the incoming airflow to stop, which blocks out ant fresh air along with pollutants and allergens. Your home without active airflow becomes uncomfortable as the air stagnates and dries out. New air filter installation is highly recommended to avoid any potential breathing issues that come with a lack of incoming air.
Air filters in an apartment are integral to air systems to the residence’s small size and the potentially dangerous complications. Apartment air is constantly cycled like a residential home, with new air being just as important to the health. The airflow helps bring in new airflow to enjoy, while the cycling also removes old air and the particles it is carrying. Apartments and homes with resident smokers or pets need consistent airflow to prevent any particles or dander from settling on any open surfaces. A dirty filter prevents fresh air from coming in, but the particles it is unable to let out may be just as damaging to the lungs.
The air filters used in the average heating or cooling air system are also installable in the home furnace heating system. The filters are place in between the heated air and the fan that will distribute it throughout your home. Heated air goes through filtration, the home proceeds to enjoy fresh air and warmer temperatures. The furnace filter will become dirty over time, like those installed in other air systems, but the results are potentially dangerous.
Air filters need maintenance or the dirty filters will block airflow and prevent the cycling process. While in a normal air system lack of airflow is bad, furnace systems have the additional problem of contained high temperature heated air. As the air builds up, the temperatures rise to dangerous levels where the system may become severely damage and shut down entirely. Furnace filters need periodic maintenance, like those found in other air systems, to prevent problems and keep the systems problems from becoming too costly.
When the air filters in your home need changing, the process is quick and easy but required consistently. The rate of replacement is usually tied to multiple factors, like home environment and filter MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating. Home’s with resident smokers or pets, or surrounded by high levels of pollutants and allergens, tend to go through filters at a faster rate. A filter’s ability to process the air in certain environments translates into its place on the MERV scale.
