Why Are We Different? How Often Should I Change My AC Filters? What Filter Should I Buy?
Since 1995, we have been manufacturing the highest quality pleated air filters at our facility in San Antonio, Texas, USA. The air you breathe is our priority. When you buy filters from us, you get the best product available made by people who really care about quality — and clean air! The answer to this depends on your unique situation. Here are some variables to consider: if you live in an extremely hot climate where your AC is constantly running, filters ought to be changed once a month. In moderately warm climates, you can stretch that to two months. If your AC sits idle half the time, then every three months could make sense.

Another important factor to consider is the level of airborne allergens in your area. Allergens can come in from the outside — think dirt, dust, mold, pollen — or they might already be in the home — think family pets, dust mites, roaches, mice, mold. Also, think about things that are not allergens, but that can trigger attacks — cigarette or cigar smoke, wood smoke, sawdust, chemical sprays, perfumes. If you have any of the situations noted above, consider a more frequent filter replacement cycle.
Each filter has a MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value) rating. Residential ratings run from a high of 13 to a low of 1. The higher the number, the better the filtration. We offer you High Performance Allergy (MERV 10), which is usually found in standard commercial buildings and better residences, and High Performance Allergy-Plus (MERV 13), which is used in superior residential and superior commercial buildings.

Filters4Air News

Keep your air clean during the cold season!

Keep your air clean during the cold season!

We have a love-hate relationship with winter.

Winter means cooler temperatures. It means the holidays. It means the opportunity to make changes for a new year. Gifts, good food, friendship and good will.

It also means pollen. Dead and drying leaves and grasses. Mites, allergens. Dust, dirt and smoke.

For many people it also means cedar fever, though it is not really a fever and it is not really cedar, but ashe juniper.

Whatever.

Who cares what the name of the &^%$# tree is? For tens of millions of people it means itchy eyes, headaches, and constant sneezing. Relentless.

And here’s something you need to remember – this doesn’t just happen because you spend time outside breathing in the pollen. Nope – it always happens because in the winter we spend more time inside our homes because it’s cold and miserable outside.

We stay inside, where we think we don’t have to change our air-conditioning filters because we’re not running the air conditioning. Memo – they are actually just air filters, and they process cold and hot air – when you are running the heater, all those pollens (including that stinking cedar) must be passed through your air filters.

If the filters are dirty, you are breathing pollen-ridden and dirty air. Period. End. Of. Story.

You need to keep your air filters clean by replacing them every month, and maybe even more often during periods of high pollen. You know, like NOW!

Yeah, we’re trying to sell air filters – that’s our business – but we live by our own advice because we also reside in San Antonio where the cedar pollen count is, as they say, “off the charts.”

Until next time – go buy some filters at filter4air.com !!!
