Indoor Air Quality In Canal Winchester, Ohio

Media Filter Vs. Standard Filter

What’s the difference between the standard air filter and a media filter?

The main difference between the standard air filter and a media filter is the air filter’s size and effectiveness. Media air cleaners are installed into HVAC equipment as a cabinet. Our air care specialists position them inside the return air duct of forced-air HVAC systems. Media air filters improve indoor air quality drastically by effectively filtering pollution from the air. Standard air filters are only about an inch thick and, as we have noted, they don’t do anything to improve your indoor air quality. Standard air filters only protect your HVAC equipment. That’s all they can do. Media air cleaners, on the other hand, use superior air filters that are about five inches thick. The standard air filter is only about an inch thick, on the other hand. This much thicker air filter provides far more superior air filtration.

We at Canal Winchester Heating & Cooling offer the best indoor air quality solutions from top brand name manufacturers such as the Honeywell Whole House Air Cleaner and the Aprilaire Air Purification System, among others.

All HVAC systems are expensive to replace and replacing them prematurely or making a lot of repairs due to wear and tear costs money.

Filters & Removes Household Air Pollution

These impurities can cause respiratory conditions and other health-related problems. In addition to the great health benefits, removing this unwanted stuff from your air supply helps you crack down on dust and dirt that would otherwise build up in the home.

How To Replace Your Media Air Filter

Replacing your media air filter is a quick and easy process. For starters, media air filters come with the media filter already inside of the cabinet. However, sooner or later, you will need to replace it when it gets clogged because clogged air filters are hard on your HVAC system. To help you through the entire process, your friends here at Canal Winchester Heating & Cooling outline a several simple steps below. Additionally, this short video also explains the process.

Step One

Take out your media filter’s frame box from your HVAC system. Prior to doing this, however, you need to make sure you turn off all the power to your heating or cooling system. Doing so is safe and also makes sure that you don’t get any of the particles, dirt or dust inside the equipment while you were replacing the media. 

Step Two

Locate the four tabs on the filter frame box itself. Turn these in order to open them up and allow the sides of the frame to go down. This will provide you with access to the media for removal. From there, the old media easily comes out and you can throw it away. Because of their convenient design, these are much easier to dispose of because they aren’t nearly as bulky, and you can fold them up and throw them away.

Step Three

Uncoil the new media filter in order to insert it into the filter frame box. The end of the new media has cardboard that should fit into the first channel on the filter frame in a snug way. Matching the old media, place the fold at the base on the filter frame box. After this, there are only two accordion filters that fit several different frames. Because of this, you might have more folds than you have channels. If you do, don’t worry. This is not a problem. If you have extra, you can bunch up any extra folds into one channel and it will still work fine.

Step Four

Once you have inserted all the folds, lift the sides of the box so you can reattach it to the new media. Flip the tabs back into place and secure the media. After this is finished, you have successfully replaced your media!
