Learn How Filters Help Every Room of Your Home Stay Fresh and Healthy
When it comes to finding the best air filter for your home heating and cooling system, talk to your Horizon Services team. Our experts work with top industry manufacturers to identify HVAC filters that block microscopic airborne particles, including pollen, dust, animal dander, and even mold spores. By filtering these potentially harmful elements, your heating and cooling system contributes to healthy indoor air that benefits you and your family.
All heating and cooling systems are designed to include a replaceable filter constructed from materials including carbon, fiberglass, cotton, or polyester. Horizon also offers MicroPower® Guard filters, which use an active electromagnetic field to magnetize particles and remove up to 97% of particles at .3 microns.
Every filter, regardless of materials or size, is rated on the MERV Rating (Minimum Efficiency Rating Value) scale from 1 to 16. Across the industry, experts agree these filters should be assessed every three months and changed as needed. A highly-trained Horizon Services technician can help determine the right filter with the right rating for your home.
If you have added a humidifier to your heating and cooling system, it includes a humidifier water panel – also known as a humidifier filter. Just like MERV-rated HVAC filters, these filters also need to be regularly changed depending on the frequency of use and water hardness.
