The HVAC air filter is critical for preventing dust from settling on delicate system components where it could potentially cause damage. A filter with a higher efficiency rating removes even smaller airborne particles to clean your indoor air.
As your HVAC filter traps pollutants, it starts to become dirty and clogged. This blocks airflow, reducing efficiency and possibly causing the system to overheat. To prolong the lifespan of your furnace or air conditioner, change the air filter every one to three months or as recommended by the manufacturer.

The easiest way to tell the different filters apart is to compare the MERV rating.
In most cases, your best option is to choose a mid-efficiency filter in the MERV 5 – 12 range. This results in above-average filtration without straining your HVAC equipment.
With the right replacement filter in hand, it’s time to change out your old one. Follow these steps for the best success:
