Everything You Need to Know About 20x22x1 Air Filters

Are you looking for a quality air filter replacement? Ace has you covered! Whether you're a new customer or a new homeowner, it's important to understand the different types of air filters and how often they should be replaced. Air filters perform three essential functions in your central air system: they help keep the air clean, improve the air quality, and provide comfort to residents and customers. The most common type of air filter is the 20x22x1 size, which is designed to fit most standard air systems. The MERV rating is an important factor when choosing an air filter.

MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Report Value and is a classification of the amount of filtration your air filter is capable of. Most air filters have a MERV rating between 1 and 20, with 1 being the least effective and 20 being the most effective. For standard air filters, it's recommended that you replace them every 3 months. However, if you have a lot of people in the house, pets, or have particularly dusty or dirty air (smokers or under construction), it is recommended that you replace your air filters at a shorter interval, between 30 and 60 days.

When it comes to oven filters, the replacement interval increases to 9 months for 3 to 4 thick filters and to 12 months for 5 thick oven filters. Filterbuy has a wide selection of replacement air filters in the same standard sizes that work just as well as the original manufacturer's filters. They offer high performance and greater filtration for residents or businesses that need them. Whether that means options for cost, efficiency, effectiveness, or size, Filterbuy has the widest selection of standard air filter sizes, each with a MERV rating and odor control options. It's important to note that air filters, oven filters, and air conditioning filters are similar products and the terms are used interchangeably.

As with all oven, HVAC and AC filters, they are interchangeable with any brand as long as they are replaced by filters of the same size.
