The 20x25x1 size air filter is a regularly sized filter used in an air system to prevent airflow from bringing in any problem causing particles. The filter consists of a tight mesh weave that prevents particles from passing by, the particles are either trapped or absorbed as clean air passes through. Over time, the stopped particles start to fill up the openings in the mesh before eventually creating a blockage. A dirty air filter is capable of causing multiple problems throughout a system, costly problems that are easily avoidable with some maintenance.
Residents and guests alike for the average home should be able to breathe easy without worrying about what they are breathing in. Indoor air quality tells a lot about your home and affects the way that residents live. As air filters become dirtier over time, the effects of the blockage become more and more obvious throughout your home. Dirty air filters block airflow and this prevents fresh, clean air from coming through the system. Air filters for residential homes dirty even faster in areas with high levels of allergens or pollutants.
An apartment building’s air systems are constantly bringing in new air, but airflow will continue to travel inside. The air in an apartment is constantly cycled so that the old air is constantly replaced with healthy, fresh air. A dirty air filter causes the cycling to stop which makes the air start becoming stale and dry. Old air is bad enough for the lungs, but it is even worse for apartments with resident smokers or pets. Smoke particles and dander have the tendency to settle on any surface they can when not filtered out of the air, which may lead to developing breathing issues.
The furnace filter cleans out the heated air coming through the system before it the fans in a system distribute it. The filtration process is important to have the heated air cleaned but it causes the filter to become a blockage after enough particles are either trapped or absorbed. A dirty air filter becomes a complication as it prevents airflow from passing through. The home suffers from a lack of heated air that leads to much cooler temperatures, and the buildup of heat in furnace is often damaging or even dangerous.
The heated airflow going through the system passed through fans that use the appropriate amount of energy to distribute it. When the air filters in a furnace block airflow, then the air system compensates by increasing the energy it uses. This spike in electricity often ends up on the energy bill at the end of the month, costing a household thousands of dollars annually. The increased strain on the machinery also causes faster wear down which leads to broken pieces and possible system breakdowns.
The air filters in a household need regular replacement before they start causing problems throughout a system. The filters you use will last depending on how clean the air pumped in is, and their MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating. An air filters becomes dirtier faster in an environment where it needs to process air full of dust, debris, dirt and allergens. The filter’s ability to process air effectively matches its MERV rating, which ranks a filter based on the tightness of its mesh weaving.
