With people spending more time at home, indoor air quality (IAQ) is on the minds of homeowners today more than ever. And with newer homes being built tighter than in the past, allowing considerably less air leakage, recirculating air particulates can become problematic.
Now’s the time to help homeowners take action
Spring is always a smart time to help homeowners focus on indoor air quality, and that’s especially true this year. A variety of factors have come together to drive IAQ awareness and make filtration solutions vitally important, including:
Balance these 3 features when analyzing air filters
HVAC systems have been called “the lungs of the home,” because they’re responsible for cycling the air in the home to help optimize homeowner comfort. Filters, of course, are a critical part of any HVAC system. When it comes to HVAC filters, filtration performance is important – but it’s not everything. When selecting a filter, balance these three factors:
#2: Pressure drop – How much airflow is restricted? Higher-rated filters with advanced MERV, MPR or FPR numbers can restrict air flow. This can make the HVAC system work harder to circulate air and increase energy costs for homeowners, depending on their system’s blower motor and fan speed settings.
#3: Filter life – How much will the filter hold and how long will it last?
While typical 1-inch fiberglass filters are usually replaced once per month, wider high-end filters can perform effectively for much longer. In fact, 4-inch filters with pleat designs feature a much larger surface, so
