For optimal filtration of smoke, chemicals, odors and gases, it is recommended to combine HEPA filters with activated carbon filters. This fragrance-free oven filter captures particles in pleated filter media to improve air quality and prevent odors from being masked with scents. The MERV Rating Measurement Scale, which stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, was developed in 1987 by the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) to measure the effectiveness of air filters. Baking soda has been added to each filter to trap strong odors and odors circulating in the building, allowing for fresher and cleaner air.
Oven filters trap dirt and debris that could otherwise reach your HVAC system, preventing parts failure, dirty ducts, and deteriorating air quality. Properly adjusting the filter oven helps reduce the amount of airborne particles that cause pet allergies. Not only is the air cleaner an important component of protecting your home's HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system, but it is also essential in protecting your family from the top concerns of the CDC, EPA, and the American Lung Association. If this happens, replace the filter and seek help from HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) technicians.
Filtrete filters are recommended by many technicians due to their ability to remove more dirt without filtering out too much dirt, which can lead to oven overheating. Disposable electrostatic oven filters feature electrostatically charged fibers that attract lint, dust and other tiny particles, ensuring a cleaner airflow in your home. When it comes to smaller particles that can irritate allergy sufferers, higher efficiency filters (MERV 11-1) will work even better to improve air quality. This oven filter has a MERV 11 rating, meaning it filters more than 90 percent of particles between 1 and 3 microns in size.
Filters are also useful for absorbing odors in the home and can allow the air to smell fresher once installed. An oven filter with a MERV greater than 8 will effectively remove dander from the air in your home, removing approximately 85% of large particles and 50% of small particles.
