How Might You Benefit from Installing A Pleated Air Filter?

5.0 Rating

Pleated filterIf you want to provide better protection for your HVAC system and have cleaner air to breathe in your home, your first thought might be to install a filter with a higher MERV rating. But when it comes to flat panel filters, higher MERV ratings often mean restricted airflow and higher energy consumption. To avoid this problem, many homeowners in the St. Louis area choose to have the best of both worlds (better particle control and good airflow) by installing a pleated air filter.

What is a pleated air filter?

A pleat is a type of fold that’s often used in clothing like skirts and trousers. When it comes to a pleated air filter, this type of fold is used to increase the surface area of a filter without having a big impact on airflow. As a result, pleated filters are able to trap more particles from your air than flat panel filters without significantly increasing your air conditioner’s energy consumption.

Pleated air filters come in a variety of different MERV ratings and sizes. Typically, pleated filters are one or two inches thick, but models are available as large as six inches thick.

Jerry A. Was very nice and explained everything to me and my wife. He let us know what things would cost. He wore his mask and work shoe covers when inside. He made a uneasy situation enjoyable.
