Types of AC and Furnace Filters
If you’re ready for HVAC filter replacement, you may be wondering which filters work best for which systems and how each filter can affect the air quality in your home. Here are just a few of the common types of filters available on the market:
- High-Efficiency Filters: High-efficiency filters are best at removing pollutants and contaminants from the air inside your home, however, they are usually more expensive than other types of filters.
- Fiberglass Filters: Fiberglass filters protect your AC unit from damaging particles, however, these do not improve air quality so if you’re looking for improved air quality or you have allergy sufferers in your home, this is not a good option. Fiberglass filters may be best to use for furnaces however, as higher efficiency filters may overload your blowers.
- Washable Filters: When it comes to cost, washable filters are on the lower end of the spectrum but are susceptible to collecting bacteria, fungi, and other contaminants so it may not be best for residential systems.
