How to Replace Your Media Air Filter
What is a Media Air Filter?
Simply put, it’s a whole-house air filtration system that attaches to your A/C system between the return and furnace/air handling unit. It consists of a 4-5″ pleated filter typically. A media air filter is a tremendous upgrade from a standard 1″ throwaway filter. It has up to five times the air cleaning power of a standard 1″ filter. Also, a media filter only needs replacing once or twice per year vs every month or two like a standard filter.
