Do Expensive Air Filters Make a Difference?

Are you wondering if investing in an expensive air filter is worth it? As an expert in HVAC systems, I can tell you that the answer is yes. More expensive air filters are generally more effective, but the type of filter you need depends on your individual circumstances. The MERV rating system is the most common way to measure the filtration capabilities of an air filter. It ranges from 1 to 20, and the average household benefits from having a filter with a rating high enough to block problems in the air, but not so high as to cause airflow complications.

High MERV filters are great for filtering debris and cleaning the air in your home, but they reduce the air pressure in your duct system. Air filters remove particles of different sizes from the air before it flows through the blower to the rest of the house. It's important to consider how long your air filter will last. Many filters last several years and are usually framed in aluminum, rather than cardboard like disposable filters.

You can also look for online retailers that offer discounts for setting up recurring shipments of air filters. Finally, keep in mind that if a filter works for too long without replacing it, the resulting effects on airflow prevent fresh air from entering. That's why it's important to call Super Heat & Air professionals for all your HVAC needs, including general maintenance, emergency repairs, installation, duct cleaning and air quality audits. In conclusion, investing in an expensive air filter is worth it as it results in a cleaner, longer-running HVAC system that needs fewer repairs and better home air quality.

So don't hesitate to call Super Heat & Air professionals for all your HVAC needs.
