1. Using quality commercial furnace filters in office environments will improve air quality, which is beneficial to the health and well-being of customers and employees.
2. For commercial applications, we recommend the use of only electrostatic, extended surface, or customized furnace filters. Look for those designed for use in large-scale commercial environments.
3. As with residential furnace filters, MERV ratings also indicate the efficiency of commercial furnace filters. A higher number means greater efficiency and superior quality.
4. Some specialty industrial furnace filters are designed to control allergens, bacteria, odors, mold spores, dander, and more. Consider the environment in which your filters will be used to help you make a selection.
5. As a rule, furnace filters should be changed every three months. This may vary depending on how much use the filter receives. In some commercial environments, it may be necessary to change filters more frequently. Check your filter monthly and follow the manufacturer's care and maintenance instructions.
6. Spending a little more on higher quality commercial furnace filters is a wise investment. Choosing well-made, highly rated products and carefully following instructions can prevent costly furnace breakdowns.
7. The use of furnace filters with high MERV ratings can also save money on utility bills, particularly in industrial environments where small gains in efficiency often translate to substantial savings.
