How Do I Select the Right Furnace Filter?

Last updated 5 years ago

Cleaning and replacing your furnace filter is one of the easiest ways to protect and maintain your heating system. Furnace filters are inexpensive, but investing in a quality filter will improve the lifespan of your furnace. You have three options when shopping for a furnace filter. The least expensive filter is made of disposable fiberglass that is cost effective, but won’t provide much protection. Pleated filters are made from dense mesh that allows them to filter more effectively. Top-of-the-line filters are passive electrostatic filters that have a dirt attracting charge. To learn more about selecting a furnace filter, watch this video from Westlake ACE.
