Are you looking for the right air filter size for your home? It can be a daunting task, especially if you have multiple filters of different sizes. But don't worry, we've got you covered! In this article, we'll explain how to determine the size of your air filter and what to look for when buying a new one. Typically, the filter size is printed along the edge of the filter frame. Note that the size shown in bold type on the filter frame is the nominal size of the filter, which is likely to differ from its actual size.
To find the size of pleated filters used in your home, you don't need to look any further than your existing filters. In the outer frame, you'll see at least one set of numbers. If you see two sets of numbers, the filter size needed to request replacements is the nominal size, not the actual size. The easiest way to know what size filter to buy for your oven is to simply remove the current filter and look at its dimensions.
They are usually printed along one side of the filter. For air filters, the dimensions of length and width are interchangeable, although conventionally the largest of the measurements is the width and the shortest is the length. Keep in mind that some HVAC systems require more than one air filter, so make sure you have the correct measurements for all of them. If your old air filter doesn't have the measurements printed on the side, you can measure it yourself.
As for depth measurement, standard air filter sizes are nominally 1 (0.75 real), 2 (1.75 real) and 4 (3.75 real) deep. If your oven has an air filter in the return vent, changing it is easy, as it can be done from inside your home. Look inside the section of the oven where the air filter should go, there should be a 1″ filter track or opening where it slides. Of course, this sounds easy when you hear the term “standard air filter size”; you might think that if your air filter is standard, it will be easy to find it when you arrive at the store.
We recommend that you start your search for a replacement air filter by reducing its depth. Once you know the size of your old air filter, you can easily buy a new one with the same dimensions. No matter what situation you are in, you will be able to calculate the size of air filter needed for your oven.
