What Are HVAC Air Filters?
All HVAC systems utilize one or more air filters, which are located within the blower compartment of your indoor unit. These filters are responsible for trapping dust, dander, pollen, and other air pollutants, keeping them out of the inner workings of the heating and cooling equipment.
Filters also help to bolster air quality, as the particles that they trap are among the most common indoor air pollutants responsible for respiratory issues and increased allergy symptoms. The effectiveness of an air filter is expressed using the “MERV” rating, which indicates the size of particles that the filter is capable of trapping, measured in microns.
What Are the Benefits of an Upgraded Air Filter?
The average air filter for an HVAC system is constructed of fiberglass and can handle dust reasonably well. However, these filters need to be changed monthly at least, and are limited in the number and type of pollutants they can trap. Upgrading is best done using pleated polyester, high-density air filters that are rated for residential use. With an upgraded filter in place you can expect:
- Improved indoor air quality, including reduced dust, dander, pollen, and mold spores in your home air
- Save money by replacing your HVAC air filter less often—poly filters only need to be changed every 2-3 months
- Increased energy-efficiency and HVAC performance through a lessening of dust that can clog vents

Common Air Filter FAQs
How Often Should I Change My Air Filter?
Though the answer depends a bit on how often you use your HVAC system, most homes need to replace their filter monthly. Upgraded filters may be able to be replaced less often, depending on quality and construction.
Is a Higher Air Filter MERV Rating Always Better?
No, actually. You must be careful to not exceed the capabilities of your unique HVAC equipment. Some systems can’t deal with pulling air through filters with too fine a mesh, which can lead to HVAC systems overheating, forming frost, and other issues that may require AC or furnace repair to resolve. For example, HVAC HEPA filters are commonly used in commercial HVAC systems, but can’t be used in most residential systems.
