Generic filters are the filters that most people buy for their homes. They are inexpensive but are so for a reason. The general rule is if you can see through the filter… air, dust, bacteria, contaminants, almost anything will get through pretty easily. You can buy a filter, or be a filter…
Pleated filters catch much more than their generic counterparts and do not cost much more. A pleated filter catches far more dust, bacteria and allergens from the air and can greatly increase the life of your system, saving you money.
These are higher quality filters that instead of being replaced every month, can simply be washed out. These filters produce static electricity as the air passes across them in the return air duct. This allows the filter to trap much finer particles of dust than other filters without restricting airflow to your AC system. No more buying filters every month; just wash them regularly with a hose and let them air dry. These filters are an ideal fit for homes that may have issues with smoking odors or pet odors. They are also a huge benefit to anyone who has allergy issues, or asthma.
These are the filters used in many hospitals and schools. They are excellent at filtering out germs, bacteria, allergens, and viruses from the air and are the highest quality filter money can buy. They aren’t expensive but can restrict airflow and need to be changed and maintained regularly.
