We are going to give you a simple way to pick the right air filter for your home because choosing the best air conditioner filter for your allergies can sometimes be a confusing task. The simple reason is that most people are not experts on their heating and air conditioning systems and generally rely on the recommendation of the company that services their HVAC (Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning) equipment.
Its that time of year again where we reign ourselves in from a little overindulgence during the holidays. If you are going to start on a healthy diet and possibly adding a workout or resuming a workout routine give yourself everything you need to succeed.
Getting the right filter for your furnace is not as easy as it used to be as new and old homes alike are switching to more sophisticated systems to protect the air quality in our homes. Originally HVAC filters were designed to protect the expensive equipment from dust and debris that could damage the systems and reduce performance. As indoor air quality in our homes has become a greater concern Companies like Lennox and Carrier have designed highly efficient systems to purify the air in your home. The more sophisticated Lennox PureAir systems, for instance, require replacement of both high-efficiency furnace filters and ultraviolet bulbs and catalytic filters. The fact is these new HVAC systems are providing ultra high-quality air in our homes to help protect the health of families, but often replacement parts and filters can seem to be costly if you do not know insider secrets.
When you are buying your air filter online most important thing to know is Air Filters have two sizes that you need to understand the Nominal size and the Actual Size. Not understanding these numbers often leads to consumers purchasing a filter that does not fit their Furnace or HVAC system.
Not understanding the Nominal Filter Size is the primary culprit for incorrectly purchased filters.The Nominal Size is the usually the dimensions used to Label the filter. For instance 16x20x1. These dimensions are a rounded value on the filters actual measurements. The actual measurements on this filter may be 15.5x19.5x.75, but that could vary by brand and manufacturer. So in order to make sure you have the correct size filter, especially if you are replacing with a different brand it is important to confirm the actual size on the filter. When purchasing filters on the internet the Nominal size is usually found in the product title.
The actual size as you might have guessed are the actual dimensions of the filter by length, width and thickness. This size is often on the filter right below the Nominal size and is usually labeled as the actual size. When you are buying a filter online the actual size is sometime in the product bullet point or the product description. If your filter does not have actual dimensions on the outside of the filter, you can measure you filter to get the correct dimensions. Some brands have a foam gasket on the outside of the filter, in this case, you will want to make sure you have a compatible actual size and that it also has the foam to ensure a snug fit.

Furnace filters should fit securely but should not have to be forced into position. If you have to force the filter into its slot, then it is probably too big. Forcing an improper filter size in a filter can cause it to buckle, damaging the filter or reducing its ability to function properly. Filters are a smaller than their slot to allow for easy replacement. Some HVAC units may need a filter with dimensions that are unique or uncommon. In these cases, a custom filter needs to be ordered.
