Furnace & Air Conditioner Filters
Why use BestAir Furnace Filters?
- The BestAir Media Furnace Box filter has an electrostatic charge that is designed to capture small particles and allergens in the air. By using one of these filters, you will be eliminating the loose particles in your house caused by pollen, plant and mold spores, pet dander, lint, bacteria and other contaminants. Common household activities such as dusting, vacuuming, cooking and smoking can increase the particles in the air. Without a BestAir filter, your health could be affected from breathing these particles and may cause allergic reactions, asthma, eye irritation and other infectious diseases.
Why do you have to have a filter in your furnace/air conditioner?
- Furnace filters protect the furnace from all of the particles that pass through it that could potentially clog the furnace and keep it from working properly. If the interior of the Furnace/Air Conditioner is not kept free of dust and particles, the internal mechanisms and coils can become dirty and over time, operate less efficiently and require costly repairs. Replacing your filter on a regular basis will help avoid costly repairs due to dust and particle buildup.
Why do you have to change your filter and when?
- In your home, the air continuously circulates and passes through the furnace filter when your central air conditioning and heat is on. It is important to change your furnace filter every three months. Your filter will have to be changed more often if you are introducing high levels of particles into your home, such as when construction is done, if you have family pets or if someone has been smoking. You will also want to change the filter more often if someone in the home has allergies, asthma, or any other lung diseases.
