A heating filter is an essential part of keeping your home warm and ensuring good air quality. It works hard to filter out dust, smoke, and other particles from the air before they enter your home. The Home Depot offers a wide range of air filter accessories to make sure your system runs at its best. Your furnace needs a certain amount of air to flow through it in order to heat your home.
To guarantee this happens, you need to select the right type of air filter. An electrostatic or washable 16x25x1 air filter is the ideal choice for this type of furnace. This type of filter is thicker than regular filters and has larger pleats, so it doesn't need to be changed as often. It can also be sprayed with a mild household cleaner to remove any grease or smoke residue.
Air filters also help keep boiler coils and heat exchangers clean, which can extend the life of the furnace and keep it running efficiently. Air purifiers are also beneficial for removing contaminants from the air. However, it is important to replace the filter in the HVAC system following directional airflow guidelines, if any, and allow the ventilation airflow to completely dry the clean air filter.
