The Importance of the Furnace Filter

The furnace filter is not there to improve the air quality in a home. The filter does remove some particles from circulating through the ventilation system, but this is not its primary purpose. The furnace filter is in place to prevent debris from entering the furnace through the return air ducts and causing damage to the furnace’s interior.

The filter will eventually become clogged up with dust, lint, and other debris. When this happens, the furnace will be placed under a larger amount of strain that will create a bigger drain on power. A clogged filter also risks causing the furnace to overheat and shut off, and particles may begin to get around the edge of the filter and enter the furnace. To prevent this, we recommend you change the filter every 1 to 3 months when the furnace is running regularly.

Air Filter Ratings

When it comes to the air filters for improving indoor air quality, it’s important to consider the MERV rating. This is the measurement of how efficient the filter is at removing particles that attempt to pass through it. Generally the higher the MERV rating, the more powerful the filter—but that doesn’t mean a higher MERV will work in your HVAC system.

The MERV 11 filter traps about 85% of particles 3.0 to 10.0 microns large and offers superior odor control. We recommend this filter for people with pets in their homes. Another option is the MERV 16 filter, which traps 95% of particles down to 3 microns, and this includes bacteria, tobacco smoke, even contaminants from a sneeze. This is the best disposable filter we carry. We’ll make sure you have a filter that does the job you need without restricting air flow through the furnace.
