A/C Filters 4 Less Announces Our Glasfloss MERV 8 Pleated Filters Now Achieves a MERV 10.
Glasfloss is pleased to announce that our Z-Line Series pleated filter line now achieves a MERV 10 per the 2015 ANSI/ASHRAE 52.2-2012 Supplement Standard. The new MERV 10 performance will upgrade our Z-Line Series with no increase in initial pressure drop, no extra cost, and the service life will not be affected.
This is great news for customers of A/C Filters 4 Less, says owner Mark Platt. “The quality of life does not have to suffer from poor air quality. At AC Filters 4 Less our number-one goal is to make sure you purchase the best filter for you and your family. We stress the importance of changing your A/C or furnace filters on a regular basis and offer email reminders to ensure everyone is changing their filters in a timely manner. ” The upgrade from MERV 8 to MERV 10 means customers can consistently expect better performance and life expectancy without additional cost, something Platt and his wife and partner, Michelle, both believe passionately in.
The MERV, or Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, scale was instituted in 1987 by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) as an improvement over existing measurement standards dating back to 1968 for the efficiency of air filters. A MERV 8 filter is rated to stop particles of a minimum of 2.2-3 microns in size, including molds, spores, dust mites, hair spray and similar particulates and allergens in the air. These filters are often found in mid-grade residential and general industrial usage. A MERV 10 filter traps particles like Legionella, auto exhaust particulate matter and lead dust, sized at 4-5.5 microns. The latter type of air filter is commonly used in high-end residential and commercial applications, as well as hospital laboratories.
The reason this rating is called the Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value is because it represents the worst possible performance of the filter after testing according to ASHRAE 52.2. Therefore, it is possible to obtain much higher performance, but these filters cannot deliver less and maintain their rating. The MERV-10 rating means that fewer allergens and pathogens can get through the filters, reducing difficulties for allergy and respiratory ailment sufferers and improving the quality of the air considerably. By achieving a MERV-10 certification, Glasfloss pleated filters are now rated as “best pleated” under ASHRAE standard 52.2, which is also the specification that governs how air filters are tested.
This is advantageous to A/C Filters 4 Less customers because it means they get improved performance, reliability and efficiency without sacrificing the airflow, power or operational capability of their AC units. In addition, these filters offer relief to the vast majority of allergy sufferers, including people with sensitivity to mold and other airborne pathogens that call Florida home. "We work very hard to provide our customers with the best product for their home or office along with the knowledge to keep them healthy and mold free," said Platt.
A/C Filters 4 Less offers air filters for HVAC systems from some of the best-known names in the industry, including Glasfloss, Purolator, Flanders, Carrier and Trane, giving customers more options and making sure they get the best possible air filter for their needs. This customer-centric business model is taken a step further by the Platts. “A/C Filters 4 Less can save time and money with custom sizes delivered right to your door,” said Platt.
