Filters for Air Conditioning Systems
The main purposes of a Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) system is to help maintain good indoor air quality through adequate ventilation with filtration and provide thermal comfort. Proper air filtration and care for HVAC filters will result in better conditions and air quality for occupants of the building as well as increase the efficiency and longevity of the HVAC system.
HVAC Air Filter Efficiency Ratings
Placement of air filters within a buildings ventilation system can block airborne particulates that can include, animal dander, pollen, mold spores, bacteria and viruses depending on the Minimum Efficiency Rating Value (MERV) of your air filters. For an HVAC system, it is recommended that you use filters for air conditioning systems with a MERV rating between 8 and 13. The higher the rating, the more contaminants that will be blocked and therefore will result in better protection of the equipment and building occupants.
Features & Benefits of Filters for HVAC:
- Available in standard and custom sizes
- Available in MERV 6, 8, 11 and 13
- Can last up to 3-6 months
- Filter harmful particulates to keep you safe from allergens & bacteria
