Many healthcare facilities, schools and businesses use fiberglass throwaway filters simply because they are cheap. Unfortunately, these filters do not capture molds, pollen, bacteria and fine dusts that can pollute our indoor air and plug up the equipment.
Pleated filters are an alternative and perform well. However, pleated filters are very expensive and don’t fit very well into the duct work or univent systems. Spacers are therefore needed to fill the gaps.
Tri-Dim's new breed of filter technology outshines fiberglass filters and performs in independent lab tests like a pleated filter but at 66% of the price. The gasket feature and linked panels make these multi-layered polyester filters superior performers.
The real cost of indoor air quality includes more than the initial investment in filter media. You must also add the labor costs to change-out filters, excess energy use caused by clogged coils, the cost for frequent coil and duct cleaning as well as the impact airborne illnesses have on health, productivity and absenteeism.
The Benefits Include
10% lower price than pleated filters.
Lower installation costs by as much as 30%.
Electricity and gas bills can be lowered by up to 16% since a small dust build up can reduce heat transfer efficiency.
Decrease the frequency of cleaning air handler and univent coil cleanings by 50%.
Increase the life of computers by reducing dust build up on circuit boards.
