Tip

What type of Air Filter should I use for my air conditioner / heater?


If you are wondering what type of air filter to use in your air conditioner/heater, you probably have already discovered there is a large variety of air filters out there to choose from.

There are several factors to consider when the choosing the best air filter to suit your needs.

1. Maintenance : level of difficulty ; interval of service
2. Efficiency : level of desired filtration and its affect on system performance
3. Annual Cost : Material and labor

Maintenance is something that can be overlooked at first. Afterall, it's just a filter, right? Filter types range from disposable to permanent. Disposables are pulled out, thrown away, and replaced with a new disposable filter. Permanent air filters must be removed, cleaned, allowed time to dry, and re-installed. Permanent air filters may or may not require electricity.

Efficiency is determined by a MERV rating of 1 thru 16 with "1" being the lowest and "16" being the highest. Low end residential air filters generally have a rating between 1 & 5. Medium grades range between 5 & 9. Higher grades are in the 9-11 range. Utimate is 11 - 13. The lower the rating, the lower the efficiency of air filtration but higher airflow due to lower resistance. The higher the rating, the higher the efficiency of air filtration but lower airflow due to higher resistance. Lower MERV ratings have minimal affects on your air conditioner/furnace performance. Higher MERV ratings can decrease the amount of air passing through the system creating system performance issues which could lead to system failure and/or decreased life. If Maximum efficiency is desired, it is recommended you consult with your HVAC contractor who can help you identify a filtration system to satisfy your needs without comprimising the performance and life expectancy of your heating and air conditioning system. Maximum efficiency air filtration will not only be capable of capturing fine particles, but it can also capture bacteria and smoke. If you determine that Maximum efficiency is not in your budget and/or not required, you should be able to install an air filter with a MERV rating of 1 - 11 without needing to consult with a contractor. MERV 8 has been laboratory tested to capture mold spores which are a big contributor to Mold in an A/C system. Additional Information on MERV Ratings - Click Here. Lower efficiency filters allow more particles to pass through which could end up getting trapped in today's higher efficiency evaporator coils. Today's coils have much smaller gaps than their predecessors making them more susceptible to collecting debris and requiring costly professional cleanings.

Annual Cost is another often-overlooked consideration when deciding what type of air filter to use. To determine annual cost, you must try to determine approximately how often you will need to replace/service your air filter and the costs of labor & materials involved. I include labor because if you have a hard-to-reach air filter or a high efficiency air filter/cleaner that requires special care, you may need a contractor to perform the service for you. Of course, if you are doing the service yourself, there is no labor involved with the exception of your own time and gas, etc. If you choose the ever-popular disposable air filter route, you should consider pleated-type air filters. Pleated Air Filters have more face area than standard air filters; therefore, they typically have a longer life expectancy - up to 3 times longer for every inch of filter thickness. In short, when determinining annual cost, you must calculate labor/material cost and multiply that cost by the number of times a year the service will need to be provided.

Proper maintenance and upkeep of your air filtration system is the single, most important service your heating & air conditioning system requires to keep it running at top performance and maintain peak life expectancy. Careful consideration is needed to determine what type of filter will meet your family's needs both on a comfort level as well as financially.

Do I need a home water filtration system?


The benefit of home filtration system is that they are passive; they require no electricity to filter the water. As long as the cost of replacement filter elements is reasonable, owing a home water filtration system can be very cheap, and it is worth it.

Air filtration system failure - crossfire 2005


USUALLY THE AIR FILTRATION SYSTEM,TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE,IS: THE AIR FILTER,PCV VALVE,THE FUEL FILTER,THE AIR BREATHER CANISTER(I THINK THAT'S WHAT IT'S CALLED)ALL OF THESE SHOULD BE CHECKED FOR NOT WORKING PROPERLY,OR DEPENDING ON HOW MANY MILES THE CAR HAS ON IT,REPLACING THEM,THEY ALL CONTRIBUTE TO THE WAY THE AIR CAN FLOW THRU THE SYSTEM,TO KEEP IT RUNNING SMOOTH.

Installing an air pump in a 5000 litre tank


The pump must be mounted nearest the 5000 liter tank. The air intake will be the air sorrounding the area, while the discharge low pressure air must be pipe to underwater level such that the air discharge of the air pump bubble up the water (aerate the water) inside the tank. This is common in fish pond/ shrimps pond/ and water treatment plants. Electrical wiring is
standard for the electric motor and controls.

I have cleaned my unit but the red light stays on


Likely so these units usually put out ozone into the air in your home which is a known lung irritant. If you truly have indoor air quality issues the only way to properly attack it is through three steps
source control - what's causing it(uv lights to kill it usually)
ventilation - bring in fresh outdoor air and exhaust stale indoor air(ERVs and HRVs depending on your climate some dealers won't sell these if they don't offer it to you they are dumb find someone who does they are Recovery Ventilators)
filtration - a whole home filtration system (look to dealers who carry Lennox who is the only company with a 100% ozone free product line and the highest filtration rates available on the market "MERV 16" filters or Trane is ok as well as Carrier systems)

These units usually put out ozone into the air in your home which is a known lung irritant. Sometimes they will call it an ionizer or something like that. If you truly have indoor air quality issues the only way to properly attack it is through three steps
source control - what's causing it(uv lights to kill it usually)
ventilation - bring in fresh outdoor air and exhaust stale indoor air(ERVs and HRVs depending on your climate some dealers won't sell these if they don't offer it to you they are dumb find someone who does they are Recovery Ventilators)
filtration - a whole home filtration system (look to dealers who carry Lennox who is the only company with a 100% ozone free product line and the highest filtration rates available on the market "MERV 16" filters or Trane is ok as well as Carrier systems)
You can look up the Lennox Merv 16 filter it was rated #1 in Consumer Reports december 2007 as the best whole home air filter above the trane clean effects and others. can be bought and installed for around 400 bucks to 1000 dependeing on how hard it is and ask about the pure air system if you want higher levels.

Mold related illness looking for a mold unfriendly a/c


be sure to leave room between filter and coil for installation of a uv light. hepa filtration may not be as effective as a micron filter. some hepa filters are glorified pleated filters. i use april air filter cases with replaceable cartridge inserts for filtration down to 3 microns. filters are 42.50 a piece to replace cartridges, no moving parts and the coil will be immaculate 10 years from now even if you empty the vac in the return every week . they are that good. the cartridge lasts a year under normal use. i have never in 15 years had a mold and or mildew problem on a unit with an april air filter, the uv light is a great accessory but probably not needed in 90 percent of the applications unless you are going for doctors office where proceedures will be performed, etc. good luck
