Honeywell Furnace Filters

Hellgate Plumbing strongly believes in extending the life of any furnace. We want to ensure each furnace unit is taken care of properly to ensure a longer life and better efficiency ratings.

One of the easiest ways to help extend your furnace life is by installing a Honeywell F100 or Honeywell F300 media air cleaner!

The Honeywell F100 media air cleaner is designed to catch up to 96% of airborne particles, including microscopic particles like dust and smoke, and larger contaminates like mold spores and pet dander. Not only are you distributing cleaner air in your home, but you are also preventing air particles from slowing down the furnace airflow, which helps maintain high efficiency levels. With a 4 inch thick filter, it will last up to 4x longer than a standard 1 inch filter. They are extremely easy to replace and has very low maintenance!

The Honeywell F300 media air cleaner is an electric filter designed to do everything the Honeywell F100 does, but it goes a step further by catching up to 99% of airborne particles. The electric component to this filter creates a charge, allowing the particles to stick to the filter like a magnet. With a three-stage filtration process, it will be almost impossible for any particle to get through your furnace. With a 4 inch thick filter, it will last up to 30x longer than a standard 1 inch filter!! That alone is an insane difference! They have very low maintenance, and instead of replacing a filter, you just need to wash them periodically (there are specific rules with washing these correctly. Please refer to a manual or call a professional).

Cleaning Furnace Filters

Happy Friday everyone, and more importantly, Happy HVAC day!!

We wanted to share this picture of a furnace filter we discovered at a residential home. As you can see, this filter hasn’t been changed out in a very long time. With this much dirt and dust piled up in the filter, it could easily affect the efficiency and life of your furnace, along with affecting the air quality. We strongly recommend residential owners to replace their filters once every few months, or even once a month if you have several animals and lots of activity. Replacing a filter can be a easy thing to miss, but it can be a simple game changer for your furnace’s life down the road.
