A Humidifier system can sometimes bring risks to the health of the family because of the particles that come out with the air that it emits. Not only will these particles cause damage to an individual’s health, but they will likely damage the motor of the humidifier as well. To stop these harmful things from happening, it is advisable to install a humidifier filter. It will make the furnace emit cleaner and more quality air while protecting the humidifier itself from premature damage.
Without a filter, the system will be prone to clogging and choking. When any of these two things happens, the motor will overload and it will cause the motor to work harder. When the motor starts to work harder, the chances of overheating and burning out are bigger.
What the furnace filter does is it traps the dust and the other particles before they can ever reach the motor and the other sections of the furnace. This tool can last from one to three months, depending on the quality and characteristics of the air that passes through it; afterwards, it should be replaced. It is quite inexpensive and replacing it when it’s already clogged will cause the furnace to run more efficiently.
If you want a filter that works more powerfully, you can purchase the ones that cost higher. They normally have higher levels of efficiency and they work more effectively.
Installing a filters will not only bring safety to your home but to the environment as well. It traps the indoor pollutants before they can even come out of your home and affect the atmosphere. The materials which are usually used to manufacture furnace filters are cotton, paper, foam and synthetics. There are also some which are made from hog’s hair.
Most of the humidifier filters available in the market today are reusable. Such type of filters can be placed back to the humidifier after cleaning. You do not need to replace them as it is the case when you use the ones which are disposable.
A filter was created to provide cleaner air inside the home. It works by freeing the air that the furnace blows from every type of pollutants. The measure of its efficiency and usefulness is represented by the MERV (Maximum Efficiency Reporting Value) marking which you will find on its label. Make sure that the filter that you will buy has this mark.
