As a business owner, have you really given much thought lately to your HVAC filters?
If you’ve had your AC coils cleaned or maybe replaced a unit, chances are you have. “Inexpensive” disposable filters offer a minimal level of protection for your expensive HVAC equipment and what’s worse, they do nothing to improve the indoor air quality of your building. If you think you’re saving money, you’re not! Calculate your filter-related costs over three years and let’s compare that to a program utilizing Air-Care Electrostatic Filters. Your savings will be significant, IAQ will be greatly improved, and you won’t be adding a big pile of dirty filters to area landfills!
“Disadvantages of “Throw-Away” Filters” (click here).
Air-Care Electrostatic Filters provide unsurpassed protection of your HVAC unit greatly reducing yearly maintenance and repair costs. Air-Care Filters also significantly improve your indoor air quality by removing contaminants from the air you breathe. Air-Care Electrostatic Filters have a Lifetime Warranty and under IRS Section 179, the full cost of your conversion is tax deductible in the first year!
Let’s Look at MERV ratings
Most filters are labeled with a MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating number, which measures a filter's ability to trap particles ranging in size from 3.0 microns to 10.0 microns. MERV is an industry standard rating, so it can be used to compare filters made by different companies. However, the MERV rating is not intended to be the sole basis for deciding which filter to buy, just as the horsepower of a car engine is not the only criteria in buying a car.
Standard filters commonly have MERV ratings of 1-12. The higher the MERV rating, the more efficient the filter and the more particles it captures. ASHRAE recommends filters designated with a minimum efficiency of MERV 6 or better for use in commercial settings. These “medium efficiency” filters provide a higher removal efficiency than low-efficiency filters and more adequately remove the particles that cause IAQ problems, unlike high-efficiency filters, which clog. This type of filter also is recommended in the EPA's Building Air Quality: A Guide for Building Owners and Facility Managers.
Air-Care Electrostatic Filters begin with a MERV 8 and increase during use. Designed to “get dirty”, their high loading capacity and low air resistance work together to provide superior filtration without unit strain. Converting to Air-Care Electrostatic Filters will result in a significant savings over disposable filters and a reduction in the yearly labor requirements to change filters either monthly or even quarterly.
The Bottom Line…..
ü Conversion to Air-Care Electrostatic Filters is fully tax deductible in the first year, “Under IRS Section 179, equipment purchases, up to $100,000, can be expensed (deducted from taxable income) if installed by December 31st.” (click here).
ü Conversion to Air-Care Electrostatic Filters and the subsequent waste reduction and IAQ improvement result in additional savings. The result is a small monthly payment that is up to 50% less than what you’re currently spending for disposable filters that are thrown away in landfills. Request a FREE Cost Analysis (click here).
ü Eliminating the need to buy, stock, change, as well as non-standard size and waste problems of disposable filters make a conversion to Air-Care Electrostatic Filters a better choice when you look at the Total Filtration Cost (click here).
