Discover the Power of Media Cabinet Filters

We believe the air filter is the most important part of your heating and cooling system. Our professional recommendation is to switch from a traditional 1-inch filter to a media cabinet with a Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) of 11 or greater. The MERV rating measures the effectiveness of air filters in trapping airborne particles. The appropriate MERV rating for a filter is determined by the unique requirements of your system and home.

Benefits of Updating Your Air Filtration

There are several reasons that support the superiority of a media cabinet filter over a standard 1-inch filter for you and your family. Our top 3 reasons why you should choose a media cabinet filter over a 1-inch filter are:

  • Improved Air Quality­

    Media cabinet filters provide a surface area up to 10 times greater than standard 1-inch filters. This expanded surface area allows for more efficient capture of harmful particles, such as pollen, bacteria, pet dander, dust, and mold; ensuring a cleaner and safer home environment for your family.

  • Optimize Equipment Performance and Enhance Reliability

    A conventional 1-inch filter with comparable MERV ratings has a tightly woven structure that restricts adequate airflow to your system. Modern furnaces come equipped with constant torque or variable-speed blowers, which are prone to mechanical issues when not receiving sufficient airflow. Our media cabinet filters ensure optimal airflow to your blower, promoting stress-free operation and prolonging the life of the system and its components.

  • Energy Savings

    Thin, flimsy air filters are prone to quick clogging, restricting airflow, and increasing energy consumption. Traditional 1-inch filters are less than 75% efficient and require replacement 4-12 times per year. Our media cabinet filters provide up to a year of protection with proper airflow, and are more than 90% efficient, reducing energy usage.
