As a complimentary service to our energy saving
technology, we offer filter delivery service right to
your door. A main component of a healthy, energy
efficient HVAC system is the ability for the system to
“breathe”. Dirty filters slow down air flow and make
it more difficult for your HVAC system to run which
causes more energy to be used. By changing your
filters regularly, you can help ensure your system
performs at its optimal level.
According to the Department of Energy, maintaining
clean filters can save you as much as 7.5% on your monthly energy bill.
BUYING THE RIGHT AIR FILTER FOR YOUR SPACE
Not sure what air filter you need?
Read below to make sure you choose the best HVAC filter for your home:
What’s the difference between air filters, furnace filters and AC filters?
Absolutely nothing; Air filters, furnace filters and AC filters are the exact same product and are always interchangeable. Aside from size differences, there’s nothing specific or unique about the air filter that goes in your central HVAC unit, the one that goes in a window AC unit, or the one that goes in your standalone heating unit.
Are pleated air filters better than fiberglass?
Pleated filters are so much better than fiberglass, that they are the only type we produce and sell. Our pleated air filters last 3-6 months (depending on the size and the filtration needs of your home) and capture over 85% of air particles in your space. Fiberglass filters, made of spun glass, last an average of 30 days and capture a much smaller percentage of air particles. You may pay more up front for the pleated filter, but it will pay you back in better air quality and less waste
What air filter size do I need?
The most important thing to do when choosing your HVAC filter is to know the exact size you need. Look at the size on the filter in your unit – if there’s no size printed, use a tape measure to find the exact length, width, and depth. Round up the measurements to find the nominal size you need.

What’s the difference between nominal size and actual size?
When searching for a 16x25x1 filter, for example, you’ll likely see 15.5″ x 24.5” x .75” listed. Nearly all filters go by the nominal size, which is the actual size rounded up to the nearest inch.
What air filter ratings do you carry? Which one should I get?
We carry MERV ratings of 8, 11, and 13, which trap and block 85% to 98% of particles in the air. We recommend MERV 6 and 8 for standard homes and businesses. MERV 11 and 13 filters offer elevated performance and increased filtration for residents or businesses that need it.
