The 20x30x1 Filter King model filter works in the average home as a deterrent against airborne irritants within incoming airflow. Our air filters consist of a tight mesh weave, manufactured to be as absorbent as possible in order to trap passing air particles. As the air filters do their job, they will inevitably become covered in the captured irritants and become a blockage in the system. A dirty air filter is capable of creating a variety of problems, it is highly recommended that you purchase new, fresh air filters for installation to ensure clean airflow.
The air surrounding the average home varies in quality depending on location, it may host all types of allergens or pollutants. The indoor air quality of your home depends on the air filters in various systems and their ability to filter out incoming irritants. Over time, the effects of an air filter blockage will become more obvious and damaging the lungs. Air will stagnate and dry, creating an uncomfortable atmosphere for everyone inside. Low air quality in your home is harmful to breathe in and only made worse without filter maintenance.
For smaller residences like apartments it becomes much more important to ensure the consistent cycling of air in your home. The air systems do not only bring fresh air in, the cycle take old and particles filled air out. For homes that have resident smokers or pets, the particles and dander that result cover any open surface they can. Air cycling prevents unwanted particles from settling and keeps the air free of similar irritants trying to stick around. Air filter maintenance is necessary to prevent the air filters in an apartment from blocking airflow coming both in and out.
The heating and cooling systems in your home need filtration as much as any other air system. The furnaces in a residence have their filters placed in between where the air heats up and the blower fan which distributes it. The air becomes heated, the particles in the airflow become trapped and the home proceeds to enjoy warmer air throughout. When the furnace filter is dirty and unable to process airflow, the trapped air begins to build up and create a temperature spike. A furnace is only able to handle so much heat and the temperatures may cause severe damage to the system.
Like most air systems, when the airflow cannot pass there are a range of problems that result. The air system will need to compensate for the blocked airflow by increasing the energy it uses, creating a rise in energy billing. The increased workload also puts a large strain in machinery that wears the system’s parts down faster and eventually causes a breakdown. A dirty air filter is capable of costing your home thousands of dollars annually, in both energy and repair costs.
The air filters in your home need consistent maintenance in order to prevent air problems from becoming worse over time. The rate of maintenance often depends on certain factors like your home’s environment or the filters MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating. Filters often become dirtier at a faster rate when exposed to airflow in particularly polluted areas. Certain seasons also bring a host of allergens that quickly cause the air to be filled with harmful particles.
The 20x30x1 air filters ability to prevent the passage of dirty air particles relies on its MERV rating. The MERV rating determines a filters particular rank on a scale that determines just how effective it is at filtration. The higher the MERV rating, the more effective the filter is, and the smaller the particles it can trap or absorb. Our filters rank as an 8 on the MERV scale, balancing affordability and efficiency. Filter King 20x30x1 size filters are able to block out basic irritants along with particles like:
