What To Look For When Selecting an Air Filter Housing

When investing in high-quality air filter housing that will protect the health of your building’s occupants, you should know what to look for. We will explore the key factors you should consider when choosing an air filter housing to ensure you make a well-informed decision that safeguards the long-term performance of your system and the well-being of those who depend on it.

Compatibility and Size

Consider the compatibility of your new air filter housing with your existing HVAC system. Choose a filter housing that accommodates the filter size required by your system and allows for easy installation and maintenance. Double-check the dimensions of your unit and the available space for the filter. Housing that is too large or too small can compromise your HVAC system’s efficiency.

Material Durability

The quality of the materials comprising the air filter housing should be one of your top priorities when making a selection. Look for a housing made from corrosion-resistant electro-galvanized or stainless steel. Strong and long-lasting materials will ensure the longevity of your HVAC system while reducing the risk of damage and leaks, which can contribute to poor air quality in your building.

Filtration Efficiency

Evaluate the filtration efficiency when selecting an air filter housing. Opt for a housing that accommodates high-efficiency filters or HEPA filters, which are known for their ability to remove dust, pollen, bacteria, and mold spores from the air. By choosing an HVAC air filter housing that can accommodate high-efficiency filters or HEPA-grade filters, you ensure the air is clean and healthy for everyone in the building.

Accessibility and Maintainability

When evaluating potential air filter housing options, prioritize accessibility and convenience in maintenance. Choose a housing design that offers easy access for filter changes and inspections. This reduces the amount of time and effort needed for regular maintenance and lowers the risk of neglecting system care. Otherwise, you would notice diminished air quality and poor HVAC system performance over time.

Airflow Performance

Another trait to look for when selecting an air filter housing is consistent airflow. This is essential for maintaining the efficiency of your HVAC system. Search for a housing designed not only to protect the filter but also to minimize airflow resistance. A housing with well-designed airflow channels can reduce energy consumption and lower utility costs.

Consider Your Options

Ask for options such as insulation and pressure gauges, and make sure you let us know if you need the housing to be located in outside conditions or anything special. We can accommodate many requests at minimal extra cost if it is done when building the housing.
