What is an air filter?Updated 3 months ago

An air filter is an essential, simple device that consists of super small tightly packed fibers that help trap and remove contaminants and impurities from your air (think: dust, pollen, mold, etc.). They are used in all heat and air conditioning systems and are necessary for a healthy, clean home or living space.

The three primary benefits of air filters are: 

  • They clean the air you breathe at home 
  • They protect your HVAC from gunk build up and potential damage 
  • They help lower your energy bills (by 5-15% a month)
