Need to Have Your Furnace Replaced?
We Can Help!

During routine maintenance checks, we may recommend considering furnace replacement if we're noticing certain factors. For instance, a furnace that is quite outdated and no longer efficient enough to heat your indoor spaces calls for replacement. A replacement may also be necessary if repair costs and needs are becoming more burdensome.

The Type of Furnace Filter to Consider

The minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV) scale is one way to determine what type of furnace filter you should use. This scale goes up to 16, although most residential filters fall in the 4 to 12 range.

A MERV 4 filter will remove about 80 percent of larger particles from the air that gets into your heating system. If you prefer even more filtration capabilities and filters that are still on the affordable side, consider filters in the MERV 7 or 8 range. If you have issues with allergies or other health concerns, however, a filter with a MERV 11 rating or higher is worth considering.

A high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter removes about 99 percent of airborne particles. However, you'll need to run your furnace at full capacity to get the optimal benefits with high-end filters like this, which should also be a consideration.
