Benefits of Air Filters
Removal of air pollution
With a media air cleaner installed in your home, you can breathe easier knowing that harmful airborne particles and indoor allergens are safely extracted from the air. But there’s more than just better health benefits — you’ll also notice less dust building up in between cleanings! Enjoy fresher-feeling (and looking!) living spaces for healthy lungs and happy eyes.
Protects HVAC equipment
Keep your HVAC systems running optimally by investing in a Whole Home Air Cleaner. With its larger surface area, it will capture and remove more dirt and dust than standard air filters to extend the life of your heating and cooling equipment.
To ensure good indoor air quality, experts recommend changing your high-performance accordion air filter at least once a year. However, the frequency may vary based on factors such as dust accumulation and other conditions in your home – to stay ahead of it all check up every six months!
Did you know that there’s an easy way to save money on your heating and cooling costs every year? Media filters are the answer! Not only do they help keep your HVAC equipment clean, but their low cost is a much more attractive option compared to buying pricey air purifiers. Moreover, improved air quality boosts the efficiency of the system while giving you even greater savings on utility bills — it doesn’t get better than this!
How to Change an Media Air Filter
Remove the media filter frame box from your HVAC. However, before doing this, make sure you turn off all power to your heating or cooling unit. Doing so is safe and also makes sure that you don’t get particles or dust in the system if it were to kick on while you were replacing the media.
Uncoil the new media so you can insert it into the filter frame. The end of the new media with cardboard should fit snugly into the first channel on the filter frame. Matching the old media, place one fold per base on the filter frame box. After this, there are only two accordion filters that fit several different frames. Because of this, you might have more folds than you do channels. If you do, it’s not a problem. If you have extras, you can bunch up any extra folds into one channel. It’ll still work fine.
Look for the four tabs on the filter frame box. Switch these to open up, permitting the sides of the frame to go down. This will give you access to the media for removal. From there, the old media easily comes out and can be thrown away.Due to their design, these are much easier to get rid of because they aren’t as bulky, and you can fold them up and throw them away.
After you have inserted all the folds, lift the sides of the box so you’re able to reattach to the new media. Flip the tabs back in place to secure the media. When this is done, you’ve successfully replaced your media!
General Media Air Filter FAQ
Do media air cleaners make a difference?
Yes, media air cleaners can make a difference in the quality of indoor air. It is important to ensure that they are properly sized and installed for the space in order to maximize their effectiveness. Media air cleaners use an air filter to capture airborne particles such as dust, pollen, mold spores, pet dander and smoke.
Are media air filters worth it?
Air quality has a huge impact on our physical and mental wellbeing. However, regular HVAC filters can’t provide the clean, fresh air we need to stay healthy — which is why media air cleaners are so important! Unlike standard filters that just remove dust from indoor spaces, media filers trap particles up to seven times better thanks their deeply pleated paper-like material. So if you’re looking for cleaner air in your home or workplace, it’s time you got yourself a powerful media filter system!
How long do media air filters last?
Media air filters have an average lifespan of between 3 to 6 months, depending on their overall usage and the environment. In environments with high levels of dirt, dust, pollen, and other particulates, it is recommended that you replace your air filters every three months. On the other hand, in areas with low levels of pollutants or debris, media air should be changed more often.
