Why finding the right thickness of filter is important.
Ensuring that your filter fits properly in your HVAC system means making sure that you have not only the right length and width, but also thickness of your filter. Most standard air filters are 1 - 2 inches in thickness. Whereas media filters are typically 3 to 5 inches in thickness. The best way to measure your air filter size is to get out the measuring tape and measure it directly.
Regularly replacing your air filter will help improve the efficiency and longevity of your furnace.

No More Dirty Indoor Air
Did you know that the air inside your home is up to five times dirtier than the outside air? Indoor air can be contaminated with dust; allergens like pollen, dust mites, and pet dander; mold; and other impurities. A good furnace filter is electrostatically charged to capture these impurities, protecting your home and your family from odors, bacteria and germs, and other respiratory irritants. If you or anyone in your home suffers from allergies or asthma, air filters for your furnace are especially important.
Protect the Health of Your Family
A good furnace filter not only protects the health of your family - furnace filters were originally designed to pick up dirt and dust from being sucked into your furnace, air conditioner, or HVAC unit. When these particulates enter your HVAC system, they burn up and leave carbon deposits and residue on the heating elements and inside the ventilation system. This residue makes your system less efficient and results in additional wear and tear on your system, leading to costly repairs and shortens the life of your furnace or air conditioning system.

Save Your Furnace Tip #3:
Did you know that the nominal size of your air filter is probably not the same as the actual size? Just like measurements on lumber, the actual size of an air filter is usually slightly smaller than the nominal size.
