Furnace Filters Calgary | Premium Air Filter Service

Most people don’t give much thought to their furnaces as long as they keep them warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Not only does it keep you comfortable, but it also helps to keep your indoor air quality high. Furnace filters Calgary offers a premium air filter service that helps remove contaminants from the air in your home.

Here are some essential things you need to learn about air filters and how an air filter service can benefit you.

How Does a Furnace Work?

Your furnace works by drawing air in through the return ducts, heating it over the heat exchanger, and then pushing it back out through the ducts to the rooms in your home to keep you comfortable. Your furnace needs a filter to keep the air clean.

What Does a Furnace Air Filter Do?

The furnace use filter to keep the dust and dirt out of the air. Furnaces use disposable filters that you need to replace every few months. The filter catches the dust, dirt, and other allergens in the air and keeps them from entering your furnace.

Over time, the filter becomes clogged with all the contaminants it caught. This reduced airflow throughout your house can cause your furnace to work harder, and it can reduce the efficiency of a furnace.

How to Rate Furnace Filters in Calgary?

Many kinds of filters range in quality. If you’re unsure how to rate furnace filters, look for one with a high filtration rating. Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) ratings range from 1 to 16, with 16 being the best. A higher MERV rating will mean that your furnace can work more efficiently and help to keep your air quality high.

What Are Furnace Filter Sizes?

Most filters come in the same size as your current filter, but if you need a replacement for your furnace, it’s best to check with an authorized dealer to see what sizes they carry.

We measure filter sizes by height, length, and thickness. The most common sizes for air filters are 14″ x 25″, 16″ x 20″, 16″ x 25″, 20″ x 25″, and 25″ x 25″. For the height and length, it usually measures 10″ x 10″ to 30″ x 30″, with “1 being the most common thickness.

How to Replace Your Furnace Filter in Calgary?

Replace Furnace Filter in Calgary
Replacing your furnace filter is an easy process that anyone can do. Here are three easy steps on how to replace your furnace filters:

Identify the exact filter size.

The first thing to do is determine the type and the size of filter you have and need to replace. If you’re not sure, you can check the filter size on the side or bottom of your current filter. Locate the furnace filter and remove it by gently pulling it out of the slot. Be careful not to damage the filter if you plan on reusing it.

Get the right replacement filter.

It’s easy to find a replacement if you use the exact filter sizes. Just look for one with the same dimensions and thickness. If your furnace takes a different size filter, you will need to get a custom filter from an authorized dealer.

Install the new furnace filter.

After determining the size and type of filter, you can install it back into your furnace. You should find a slot for the filter on or near where you removed the old one. Make sure that the filter is sitting firmly against the wall of your furnace before using your system again.

Air Filter, Air Cleaner, or Air Purifier?

A furnace air filter is not the same as an air cleaner or an air purifier. Air filters are cartridges tailored to trap particles such as hair, dust, and dust mites. They also come in various forms, including:

  • a large filtration system
  • small cartridge, or
  • mesh or foam where the air can flow through
An air cleaner uses a mechanical process to trap and remove contaminants from home, whereas an air purifier uses ionization and chemicals to clean your air. An air purifier is beneficial if you have allergies or asthma.

Types of Air Filters and Air Cleaners We Carry HEPA Filters

A high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter is a type of air filter that captures 99.97% of all particulate matter 0.3 micrometres in size or larger. HEPA filters make it an effective filter for people with allergies and asthma.

4-Inch Pleated Filters

A 4-inch pleated filter is a high-capacity filter that traps contaminants more than the standard 1-inch cartridge, making it a practical choice for catching small allergens.

Electrostatic Air Cleaners

An electrostatic air cleaner is an air filter that uses static electricity to attract particles of any type, making it an effective way to get rid of dirt and allergens in the home.

Electronic Air Cleaners

An electronic air cleaner is an air filter that uses a series of wires and grids to remove particles from the air. It’s beneficial for people with allergies, asthma, and pets.

UV Air Purifiers

A UV air purifier is an air cleaner that uses ultraviolet light to kill bacteria, viruses, and mould spores in the home. It’s beneficial for homes with asthma or allergies since it kills nearly 100% of all harmful contaminants.

Finding the Right Filtration Unit in Calgary

As you may have noticed, there are several different types of air filtration units. Each year, most homes in Calgary replace their furnace filter or air cleaner to improve indoor air quality. Furnace filters Calgary offers a wide range of filters and cleaners at affordable prices, so it’s easy to find a suitable unit for your home.

Furnace filters come in different sizes and types, so you must find the one that fits your needs. If you have allergies or asthma, we recommend using a HEPA filter to remove all of the allergens from the air.

If you’re looking for an air cleaner that will remove larger particles, we suggest using a 4-inch pleated filter. An electrostatic air cleaner is an excellent option for smaller particles and allergen removal. And finally, for homes with asthma and allergies, a UV air purifier is the best solution.
