The main purpose 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 filter within a buildings ventilation system can block airborne particles 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 protections of the equipment and building occupants.
------Main Classification of Air Filters
Synthetic Fiber Material Air Filter
Non-woven Fabric Material Air Filter
------Advantages of Filters for HVAC System:
Available in standard and custom sizes.
Can last up to 6 months to 1 year.
Filter harmful particulates to keep you safe from allergens & bacteria.
