March 21, 2018 |

When trying to answer the question of what is best there should be a list of disclaimers, because nothing is 100% best 100% of the time.  For this question, we are addressing commercial HVAC applications for non-critical facilities like schools, office buildings, ...

MERV 13 Air Filter

October 09, 2017 |

Increased awareness of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and the pollutants and particles that are in the air have changed the idea of what "good" air filtration is.  The health effects of breathing air with a high amount of small sub-micron Particulate Matter (PM) have been ...

MERV 11 Air Filter - The Compromise Efficiency

June 02, 2017 |

It could be that because we're in the Midwest and it's part of our culture more than other places, but we are always seeking a compromise between High-Quality and Price.  Never thinking we deserve the "best" and compromising with "good enough" has lead to high demand ...

MERV 15 (95%+) The Forgotten Air Filter Efficiency

May 30, 2017 |

With a scale of 16 different classifications in MERV through the ASHRAE 52.2 test method, the industry only actively uses about half of them.  At the high end of the spectrum we see more filters made with more options than anywhere else.  MERV 13, MERV 14, and MERV 16 ...

April 21, 2017 |

Ever wonder how much energy is required to overcome the restriction of the air filters in your HVAC system?  And how different styles of air filters can increase or reduce this energy drag?  Take a look at the following energy use demonstration to see one of the most ...

Air Filter Battle: Minipleat vs Durafil ES 2 High Efficiency Air Filters

April 21, 2017 |

Secondary filters are not only expensive, but they also put a big energy drag on an HVAC system because of their increased resistance to airflow.  But that energy drag can be greatly reduced by simply switching air filter styles/makes!  Take a look at the following ...
