Filter King 14x30x1 premium model air filters fit both the HVAC and heating systems in the average household. The filters ensure that as air is being pumped in, any intruding particles become cleansed out of the airflow. Air filters clean out passing airflow by trapping and absorbing passing particles while letting the cleaned air pass through. Over time, the filters will begin to take on so many particles that they begin to cause problems for the air system. Air filter maintenance is necessary to prevent the issues that become a serious problem with dirty of ineffective air filtration.
Your home air system needs filters in order to prevent any number of pollutants or allergens from entering via incoming airflow. As new, fresh air comes in to replace the old, the air inside cycles of preventing stagnation and dryness. Filters prevent your home from lowered indoor air quality, a complication that leads to discomfort and possibly dangerous results. Dry, stagnant air with dirt or debris particles is unhealthy to breathe in, causing the development or triggering of breathing issues. Air filters are able to block out intruding particles, but over time they trap so many particles that they become a blockage in the system.
Apartments air systems require filters to ensure that the air in the space available is comfortable and safe to breathe. The air in an apartment needs constant cycling in order to bring fresh air in and indoor particles out. When an apartment has residents like pets or smokers, it makes it all the more important to make sure that the filters in place and clean. Dirty air filters are unable to efficiently process air coming in or out, which means smoke particles or pet dander settle on the open surfaces of a room. Other particles like dust or dirt is also left to settle and the blockage leads to drying and stagnation.
Furnace filters in a heating system ensure the air traveling through does not leave any irritants in the duct system or accompanying rooms. The filters are in between where air heating takes place and the fan that distributes it, air becomes cleansed so the home enjoys fresh airflow without a problem. The filters eventually become dirty, blocking airflow and preventing the home from warming up. Blocked airflow preventing air from leaving affects more than just temperature, it affects the mechanical aspects of a system as well.
When a furnace filter is dirty, then the lack of airflow becomes a dangerous problem, primarily due to the lack of release for the heated air. If the furnace system is unable to release all of its heat then the temperature will rise to an extreme degree, possibly leading to severe damage. New furnace parts are costly, and unnecessary considering a new filter fixes the problem at a fraction of the cost.
The air filters in your home are best changed every month or so. The rate of replacement depends on factors like environment and MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating. Your home’s environment plays a large part in just how many irritants your filter will need to cleanse from airflow. Home in areas with high levels of pollutants or allergens need filters to prevent the airflow coming in from becoming unsafe or uncomfortable. Internal environment plays a large role as well, with resident smokers or pets producing large amounts of particles or dander that can easily enter a system.
The Filter King 14x30x1 air filter ranks on the MERV chart as an 8, the chart itself is a tool to determine how well your filter cleanses passing airflow. Filters rank higher the more tightly woven their mesh weaving is, but the tight weaving also blocks airflow. An air filter for the home works best when the mesh weaving is tight enough to trap passing particles but not so tight as to create a blockage. Filter King model air filters allow for airflow to pass while also keeping our certain irritants like:
