Some Useful Information about Furnace Air Filters

There is not much we can do about the air pollution outside of a house in Ottawa, Canada, but we can do something about the air pollution in your home, emanating from your furnace and air conditioning systems. It does not matter if you live in Montreal, Gatineau Canada, Mississauga or the GTA, OttawaFurnaceFilters.ca has you covered to help you breathe clean air, wild paying less at wholesale prices.

If you are looking for the M1-1056, Lennox Healthy Climate, Five Seasons or the ReservePro 16x25x5 to buy, we have all kinds of furnace air filters that are on the market. The tightly sealed homes we build today (in Canada and even in the National Capital, Ottawa) allow indoor air pollution to build up, but there is something you can do about your air quality. As weird as it sounds, air pollution can be worse inside your home in Canada than outside.

Today’s Ottawa homes are becoming more airtight, and while this saves you money on your furnace heat and your air conditioning bills, it also means any air pollutants in your home have a much harder time escaping. Your home can trap pollen, mold, fungi, bacteria, viruses, and dust mites. We even add to the problem by contributing tobacco, wood or cooking smoke, pet dander, insecticides, toxins emitted from air fresheners, carpets, glues, household cleaners, paints, varnishes, press board furniture, and much more.

In fact, we breathe in about 50,000 of these pollution particles with every breath and we take 20,000 breaths a day! While we are unable to do much about the air quality outside of your home, we can do something about the pollution inside, where most people spend the majority of our time.

You can improve your indoor air quality and eliminate airborne particles with a pleated media filter; furnace air filters and HEPA air cleaners are great additions to homes with allergy sufferers and so are HEPA air filters. Remember, the higher the MERV rating the better protection the filter will provide you and your family. Save Your Lungs and Your Wallet – Improve Your Indoor Air Quality to buy your Furnace Filters Canada with OttawaFurnaceFilters.ca Poor indoor air quality can affect the overall efficiency and life expectancy of HVAC equipment.

In fact, poor air filtration can shorten the lifespan of your system by up to seven years! Five Seasons Filters can help. What can be done? The answer is simple, change your furnace air filter and get an annual furnace and air conditioning cleaning, to make your furnace and air conditioner last forever! Not changing your filter often enough can have serious consequences on the lifespan of your furnace and air conditioning. A Lack of sufficient airflow can strain your furnace components, such as your blower motor, and cause your furnace to drag.

Your blower motor will overheat, which will cause your heat exchanger to crack. A cracked heat exchanger is dangerous because it can allow Carbon Monoxide to be released into your home, which is very dangerous, and this can be costly to fix. A furnace that is overworked, trying to push air through a clogged filter, will have a significantly reduced life span.

Did you know that a mere 1/32nd of dirt and dust accumulation on the inside vanes of a blower motor can reduce air flow through your home by up to 30%? A 1/32nd accumulation on a coil or heat exchanger can reduce your home heating and cooling efficiency by up to 16%. Your furnaces and air conditioners are probably the most expensive appliances in your home and if poor indoor air quality is causing them to run inefficiently, you could be costing yourself hundreds of extra dollars in energy bills and break downs.

Even the most energy-efficient furnace can’t keep your home snug and warm without a well-operating air distribution system. If an air filter becomes so clogged and dirty that it restricts airflow, the system will have to work harder to get conditioned air through the ductwork. Dirt can also accumulate on the coils and further restrict airflow.

Dirty filters can cause dust, grime, and debris to build up on heater components, which can impair the efficiency of the entire heating system. Over time, the heater’s performance weakens while the energy usage steadily increases. Replacing a clogged filter can lower an HVAC system’s energy consumption by as much as 15 percent.

Filters are rated according to the number and size of particles that they can trap. In the rating system used, the Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV), the higher the MERV, the better the filter’s ability to remove small particulates. An expert from Hollub Heating can help you to select the best filter for your heating system.
