fiberglass air filters

Fiberglass Air Filters

Fiberglass filters are the lowest-priced option available. They deliver modest performance, capturing larger particulates like dust and lint.

Pleated Air Filters

Pleated filters are an easy way to improve homeowner’s air quality and protect their HVAC systems. They offer high filtration performance – with filters up to 14/15 MERV rating available.

Why Does Filtration Performance Matter?

Not every homeowner knows what to do when it’s time to change their air filter. With so many filter options with variables on quality, material and price, it’s common for home owners to base their decision on price alone. While inexpensive fiberglass filters may seem like a smart idea for their budget, it may not be the best choice for the health of their HVAC system or their family.
