Increasing utility costs, restricted budgets and environmental concerns challenge facility owners and operators to seek solutions that help save energy and reduce operating costs, while meeting appropriate indoor air quality requirements.
In addition to upgrading to energy efficient air handlers, the choice of replacement HVAC filters may also impact your overall energy savings. Comparing the "Total Cost of Ownership" (TCO) between existing and potential filtration solutions is very useful in determining which HVAC filters to buy. Learn more.
