Choosing the Best Air Filter for Your Home

Clean vs Dirty Air Filter

Choose the best air filter when you are replacing your old air filter. This can greatly benefit the air quality inside your home. Many illnesses are associated with airborne contaminants so indoor air quality is a very important consideration.

Regularly replacing your air filter(s) is important in increasing the quality of air as it circulates throughout your home. Your heating and air conditioning units will have improved performance with a clean air filter.

Your air filter(s) should be checked every month and replaced at least every three months. It is best just to replace your air filter if it appears dirty. Do not attempt to clean it.

Your Indoor Air Quality

Your indoor air quality can be affected by several factors:

  • Volume of air circulated.
  • In- home pollutants such as smoking, pets, number of people in the home, ventilation and insulation.
  • Poor ventilation can lead to poorer indoor air quality. Fine particulates, germs, dirt, dander and other pollutants will be more concentrated indoors.

Types of Air Filters

There are many types of filters: Hepa, Carbon, Electrostatic, after market and manufacturer’s branded filters. If you have smoking in your home, have pets or generally high traffic then you will require a higher quality air filter.

Those benefitting from Hepa or electrostatic filters are:

  • Infants
  • Elderly people
  • Anyone in your home that suffers from breathing problems, has allergies or other illnesses.

Hepa or electrostatic filters greatly reduce pollutants, allergens, pollen, bacteria and most other airborne contaminants. Additionally, carbon filters can reduce odors and chemicals.

When selecting a replacement air filter, it is wise to choose a well made filter to maximize air filtration and higher quality air output. It is important that the filter fit properly. It should be measured by width, height and depth.

Air Doctor Heating and Air encourages you to check your filter often and replace regularly to maintain safe indoor air quality in your home.

    My family moved to a dense part of our city where the air is really smoggy, and your article had some great tips for choosing an air filter that could help us with this issue. I liked how you said to consider an Hepa or electrostatic filter, as these are good for people with breathing problems. My husband has allergies, so we’ll keep this in mind when when shopping for an air filter.
