3M HVAC solutions for the commercial office market

Commercial Office

For HVAC engineers it is often a fine balance of finding the best air filter solution for the building and keeping their operating budgets in check. Meeting environmental requirements for buildings is becoming increasingly important too.

Energy consumption related to HVAC systems is a significant component of the overall energy consumption required to operate a building. Using energy efficient air handlers is one step towards reducing those operational costs. Choosing the right HVAC replacement filters helps maximize those savings opportunities.

The greater the ability of a filter to load with debris without substantial increase in pressure drop, the greater the possible energy savings. HVAC engineers typically look for filters that have a low initial pressure drop, high filter loading capacity and the minimum required particle capture efficiency required.
