Carrier air filters are filters that are compatible with products manufactured by the company Carrier. Carrier makes electronic and media air cleaners for furnaces. These cleaners work as air filtration systems. These systems are necessary because forced air heating and cooling systems can cause airborne contaminants to become stirred up, aggravating an already existing problem of polluted indoor air.

What happens if you don't have a good air filtration system is increased aggravation to the respiratory system, as well as overall health. People who spend a lot of time indoors often complain of feeling tired, listless, and foggy. Have you ever heard of "sick" buildings or environmental illnesses? These are realities, not fiction, and they simply refer to the health problems caused by stale, unhealthy and contaminated indoor air.

What Carrier Air Filters Do

Say you have a new furnace installed. That furnace is going to use air blowers to circulate heated air throughout your home. That's great for your heating situation, but it's not so great if the air getting blown throughout every room is loaded with dust, pollen, allergens, and whatnot. Before too long, you can start to feel affected. Red eyes, coughing, sneezing, and even itching or swelling are all symptoms of allergic reactions to airborne particulate matter. No one wants to live like this--and you don't have to, because all good furnaces have an air purifying system installed.

Carrier air filters are meant to be used with Carrier's media air cleaners. "Media" refers to the micro-fibers from which the air filters are constructed. These air filters effectively trap particulate matter from the entire home, making them part of a whole house air purification system. This is in contrast to the small space air purifiers you can buy in stores at the mall, which only clean the air in the room in which they're placed. Since Carrier air filters need to be replaced periodically, you can either purchase the brand-name replacement filters from the company, or compatible filters from other companies for nearly half the regular price.
