How an air filter works
Whether intended for use in the furnace, the air conditioner, or an air purifier, air filters are crucial for keeping your HVAC system running smoothly. They work by trapping small particles as the air passes through them. This prevents dust, dust mites, smoke, pollen, mould spores, and pet dander from contaminating your system and hindering its efficiency. Quality air filters will save you on the cost of HVAC maintenance, repairs, and replacements. A more efficient system means lower heating and cooling costs as well.
Respiratory conditions like allergies and asthma can be triggered by particles circulating throughout your home, so reducing the volume of contaminants in the air can help bring relief. Some filters are even capable of trapping bacteria and viruses to reduce the spread of illness.
