Filter King offers premium 16x16x1 size air filters to provide the air systems in your home with an important layer of protection. Our air filters consist of tight mesh weaving that is ergonomically designed to trap and absorb particles in passing airflow. Your air filters are necessary in order to protect the air quality inside your home from irritants. The air filters are able to keep your home clean, but in the process they will become dirtier over time. Dirty air filters become a large issue the longer they go without maintenance, which means that a new 16x16x1 filter will need periodic installation.
A residential homes air system will constantly pump in air from the outside, and while fresh, this air is not necessarily clean. The air around your home may be full of any number of irritants like pollutants and allergens. Without your filter the indoor air quality of your home is in danger of dipping to uncomfortable or unsafe levels. The particles that are able to enter your home are capable of causing the development or triggering of breathing issues. Air filters are able to block out irritants but create complications for your home themselves when they start blocking airflow.
The air filters in your home need to be clean or the resulting lack of airflow will cause air quality to lower over time. The old air in your home needs to flow back out through your air systems or it will begin to dry out and stagnate. Your home much less comfortable when there are problems with the air, and breathing issues may even start to develop. New air filters will allow airflow to pass without issue and keep the air inside your home smelling fresh.
Your apartment has fewer options than a residential home when it comes to incoming airflow. The limited space available makes every breath of air count, meaning that it is in your best interest to ensure high indoor air quality. The air pumped in by your various systems does not just enter one room and leave either, airflow travels throughout your ducts and into different rooms. Filtration prevents certain particles like smoke or pet dander from traveling but when they become dirty the particles stay in place.
Airflow causes certain particles to float into the ducts where they become trapped or absorbed by your air filters tight mesh weaving. When the particles do not leave the room, they tend to instead cling to whatever surface they are able to. The resulting layer of particles covering a room make cleaning much more difficult and the home much less comfortable to live in.
Your 16x16x1 air filters are also able to fit into the average furnace heating as well to protect your ducts against incoming irritants. The filter will go in between the are where the incoming airflow heats up and where the blower fan will distribute it throughout your duct system. The airflow going through the filter becomes clean and the ducts afterword are not filled with dirt or debris that may have otherwise begun building up. Dirty furnace filters become an issue like they would in any other air system, but they also bring certain complications that demand immediate attention.
Your furnace system heats up incoming airflow before the blower fan sends through the ducts and into the accompanying rooms. Dirty furnace filters means blocked airflow, meaning that these rooms begin to fluctuate in temperature when not heated. When heated airflow becomes blocked there may also be a rise in temperatures that the system may not be able to properly handle. The extreme temperatures are able to severely warp and damage the system, which will require some costly repairs.
The air filters in your home need regular replacement, or they will become dirty and start causing some serious problems. The airflow in your home cannot stop or become blocked or the system will try to force the airflow past the blockage. The subsequent increase in energy usage raises billing and wears down the various mechanical parts involved. You may see your energy costs rises by thousands of dollars annually, not to mention the costs of part repair and replacement.
The replacement rate of your filters is usually tied into your home’s environment and your filter’s MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating. Your home may is usually surrounded by any number of allergens, pollutants, mold and debris. Depending on your filter’s MERV rating, it will be able to block all kinds of irritants and in the process become dirty faster. Filter King 16x16x1 size filters are able to block out irritants microns in size, including:
