Air & Furnace Filters - Niagara Falls, Fonthill & St. Catharines
An air filter is a necessity if you have any type of HVAC system, whether it be an air conditioner, heat pump or furnace. Its role is to protect your home comfort system from dirt and dust, which can hurt your system’s efficiency and performance. It also helps keep your air clean by filtering those particles from your breathing air.

Yes, the type of filter you use in your HVAC system does matter. Filters come in different efficiencies, ranging from basic fiberglass filters to high-efficiency HEPA filters. Higher-rated filters can capture smaller particles, including allergens and pollutants, leading to improved indoor air quality. However, higher-efficiency filters may also restrict airflow, affecting the system's performance. It's essential to strike a balance between filtration efficiency and airflow to ensure the HVAC system operates effectively and efficiently. Consulting with an HVAC professional can help you choose the right filter for your specific needs.
The best type of filter for your HVAC system depends on your specific needs and priorities. If you're primarily concerned with improving indoor air quality and reducing allergens, a higher-rated filter like a HEPA filter or a pleated filter with a MERV rating of 8 to 13 may be suitable. However, if you prioritize airflow and energy efficiency, a filter with a lower MERV rating or a washable filter could be a better option. Consulting with an HVAC professional can help you choose the best filter for your system and requirements.
How Often to Change Your Air Filter
How often you should change your air filter is dependent on several factors, including:
- How many pets you have.
- Your overall indoor air quality.
- The number of people living in your home.
- The type of air filter you have.
If you use a basic air filter that is 1” - 3” in the average home, you’ll want to change it every 30-60 days. If you need to change yours, you may notice signs such as dust near your air vents and a filter that is caked with dust.
Your Air Filter Options
You can pick up a standard, disposable cartridge from your nearest supply store, but you can better look after your health and furnace or air conditioner by considering a more advanced option. Evans provides the latest options from Lennox.
If you’re looking for a more advanced option for the quality of your indoor air, in addition to your air filter, consider an air cleaner.
