Air Filter - HVAC & Furnace Filters
Quality filters at low prices!
Maintaining your furnace, air conditioner, or HVAC unit is important. The furnace - HVAC air filter is one of the most important components of maintaining your unit. Regular filter changes can save you thousands over your lifetime - sometimes more. But why?
Why are air filters so important?
Change your air filter regularly to keep your HVAC system running efficiently. Your HVAC filter or furnace filter serves several purposes. It cleans the air by collecting dust and allergens and maintains your HVAC system by keeping the components clean. The correct furnace filter will keep your HVAC running more efficiently and preserve the life of your expensive system. It will also maintain a higher level of indoor air quality in your home.

What is a MERV rating?
MERV is an acronym for Minimum Efficiency Rating Value. In simple terms, it rates air filter efficiency and indicates the particle size captured by the filter. The MERV Rating scale ranges between 1 and 16. The higher the MERV rating, the more effective the filter is at capturing smaller particles and allergens.
About Air Filters
What does a Furnace Filter do?
Even the cleanest homes have debris and particles floating in the air. Without air filters, these particles find their way into the heat exchange, A/C coil, and ductwork. This creates a barrier that, if left unattended can damage your HVAC system. HVAC systems are costly to repair and even more costly to replace. Even in the absence of damage, your energy bills will continue to increase due to the lack of efficiency and over-exertion of the HVAC unit.

Finding the correct air filter size can be overwhelming. There is a wide range of sizes and types. A good rule to learn and remember is that the lableled size is not necessarily the actual size. For instance a has an actual size of 19-1/2" x 21-1/2" x 3/4". The measurments on the air filter are rounded up for ease of understanding. This is completely normal and is the industry standard in air filter manufacturing. The labeled size is the size of the opening that the filter is designed to fit into, therefore, the actual size will always be slightly smaller to allow for easy installation and removal of the filter.
