The Right Air Filter For Your HVAC

The quality of air in your home will be determined by your air filter and how well maintained it is, that’s why North Central Florida Heating and Air wants to provide you with the knowledge that you’ll need to find the perfect air filter for your home. As the HVAC market has advanced, so have the quality of air filters that you can purchase. Here are a few of the factors that you need to consider when purchasing a filter.

Maintenance

In order to maintain the quality of air in your home, you’ll need to make sure that you manage the cleanliness of your air filter. If you’re thinking about purchasing a disposable filter, you’re going to have to change your filter once every month, maybe more depending on your cooling and heating use. This will require you to have at least one extra on hand for when you need to replace the current one. For reusable filters, you will still have to clean the filter once a month, but won’t have to worry about always having an extra on hand. As with anything else, these air filters will wear down over time and eventually need to be replaced.

Cost

The primary difference between cost will come down to how much you want to pay at the point of sale. If you don’t mind spending a little more initially, a reusable air filter would be your best option. You’ll be able to clean this for months without having to spend money on filters every month. The better you manage your filter, the longer it will last. As for disposable filters, you will pay less at each point of sale, but will have to consistently make that purchase. Considering the longer term of your HVAC use, and how frequently you use your heating and cooling, should help you determine which is the better of these two choices.

Efficiency

Any air filter will improve the quality of air in your home, even more so when it’s maintained well. Once you’ve determined whether you want a disposable, or a reusable air filter, you can get more specific and pick filters that are used for high efficiency particulate air, or filters that will be environment friendly. At this point you can pick filters that are targeted towards your needs.
