How to Super Charge Your Air Filter
Super Charge Your Air Filters(and Kill Viruses and Bacteria in Air and on Surfaces on Your Home)
You can proactively clean the air and surfaces in your home by adding an In Duct Air Purifier that creates supercharged particles. This is the same compound created by thunderstorms and waterfalls in nature and helps purify the air. Aerosolized ions are effective in reducing bacteria, viruses, odors, and other contaminants that exist in the air you breathe inside your home. This creates charged particles which will attract to other particle in the air for better filtration when using electrostatic filters. Check out the Iwave-R.

4. How much is an air filter for a house?
Cost on filters may depend on the size of the filters but here are some ballpark prices.
1 inch flat green fiberglass filters which are considered cheap air filters can cost less than $1 but may have no MERV rating meaning they do not protect the air quality.
1 inches pleated MERV 8 filters can be as little as $4.50 if bought in bulk such as a case of 6 filters but the cost is dependent on the size of the filter.
Whole House filters vary in price by manufacture and can range from $25 to well over $100.

How Do I Find the Size of My AC Filter?
How do I know what size air filter to get?
You can usually Find the Size of Your Air Conditioner filter right on the size of the frame of the filter. Many filters also have a model number of the filter.
The Picture of this 12x12x1 inch air filter has the Nominal size which is the size by which air filters are generally sold. On the right of the filter it also includes the actual size of the filter which are the true measures dimensions of the filter by length width and depth. See air filter image with Nominal size in red box and actual size in orange box :

Some filters may have a model number where you can lookup the model number or compatibles for the model number. If you can not find a size or model number you can measure the filter and look it up on the Air filter size chart by actual size.
If there is no size on your current AC filter, you can measure the length width depth of the filter and the filter to find the Actual Size of your filter with the Corresponding Furnace Filter size in the Furnace Filter Size(Nominal Size) Chart.
What happens if your furnace filter is too big? When a filter is too big it tend to crush or crack on the sides which can allow air to go through the crack or around the filter where is was dented. This prevents proper filtration.
How Often Should I Change My AC Filter?
General pleated 1 inch AC Filters are changed every 2 to 3 Months Depending on use. Environments with Smoke, heavy dust (ie Desert) or pets may need more frequent air filter changing.

What is the Best Furnace Filter?
Answer: MERV 13 for 1 inch filters or MERV 16 for Whole House Filters.
The best furnace filter or AC filter depends on your HVAC system. MERV is a rating system designed by HVAC engineers(ASHRAE) to evaluate filter efficiency. The Higher the MERV Rating the more efficient the filter. If you have 1 inch return vent filters or a 1 inch filter in the furnace, a pleated MERV 13 filter is generally the highest rated filter available for your system. MERV 13 filters are high efficiency filters recommended for allergy suffers. MERV 8 is around the level that begins to protect air quality in the home. The American Lung Association recommends a minimum of a MERV 11 filter efficiency.
If you have a system that uses a whole house filter you may have an option from MERV 8 up to MERV 16 depending on your HVAC system if you have a system that has an option of a highly efficient MERV 15 filter such as Bryan and Carrier offer in there Germicidal Air Purifiers. Lennox has a MERV 16 Filter option as offer in the Lennox Pureair System which is among the highest efficiency residential filters available and is also recommended by Lennox as an upgrade to specific Carrier, Trion Air Bear, and Honeywell systems.
Is an expensive brand of air purifier necessary if you have allergies? A better Quality Air Filter with an efficiency rating of MERV 11 or MERV 13 can make a difference in air quality for allergy suffers and does not have to be expensive. The cost of a single 16x25x1 MERV 13 air filter may cost about $9.99 and last up to 3 months so the cost is only $3.33 per month.
A low quality woven or spun fiberglass air filter is made to protect the HVAC equipment and not meant to protect air quality. According to the EPA and CDC indoor air quality it 200% to 500% more polluted than the air outside. Higher quality air filters will remove smaller particles from the air stream more efficiently as the MERV ratting increases. Many allergy sufferers add a standalone HEPA Air Purifier in a bedroom to have better air quality when they sleep. Better quality 1-inch pleated filters have more media which is a higher quality media for better filtration and usually last (90 day) 3 times longer than cheap woven fiberglass filters(30 days).
Do furnace filters have to be exact size? Yes. An improperly fit air filter can let air flow around the filter. This will prevent the filter from protecting the HVAC system equipment and will not filter or protect the indoor air for air quality.

How do I know what HVAC filter I need?
1. Check Actual Size: Air filters are labeled with the Nominal Size(varies by Manufacturer and Model) which can be a rounded number. For instance a Lennox X6670 filter has a Nominal Size of 16" X 25" X 5" but an Actual Size 15-3/4" X 24-3/4" X 4-3/8". A 16x25x5 from Lennox may not be compatible with a 16x25x5 model from another manufacturer because they may have a different actual size.
2. Measure Actual Size of your current filter. Use a measuring tape and find the LxWxD(Length, Width and Depth of your current filter)
3. Check compatibility by Model Number. Filters may have a list of Models from Various Manufacturers which are compatible with the filter you need. Beware many filters models number are very similar, double check the actual size(true measured dimensions of the filter) to make sure you have the right filter.
4. Find the Right Filter Rating: MERV(Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) is a rating system for air filters create by ASHRAE(American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) to measure the efficiency of air filters. Some companies use their own rating system such as Home Depot uses FPR(FILTER PERFORMANCE RATING) and 3M uses MPR(MICRO-PARTICLE PERFORMANCE).
5. MERV 8(comparable to MPR 600 and FPR 5) is a good level to begin to protect air quality in your home. MERV 11( Comparable MPR 1000-1200 FPR 7) and MERV 13(Comparable MPR 1500-1900 FPR 10) are used in superior commercial buildings and in homes with allergy sufferer. MERV 15 and MERV 16 are among the top residential air/furnace filters available.
Where is the filter on a furnace?
Furnace filters are generally in 1 of these 3 locations.
1. Filter can be located in a blower compartment right before the air handler.
2. Filter can be in a filter cabinet next to furnace between the return vent and the furnace equipment.
3. Filter can be in return vents inside the home usually behind a removable grill.
What happens if you put a furnace filter in backwards?
The filter should always be placed in the correct direction for the Air flow. Here is why.
1. Placing the filter in backwards may cause the filter to collapse resulting in air flow going around the filter. Many filters have a wire backing to prevent collapsing against the air flow. The filters first job is to protect the equipment from dust. Air flow around a filter can damage your system.
2. Air flow in the wrong direction of a filter can create a greater resistance causing a strain on your system. This can increase utilities and shorten the life of your system.
