FiltreteTM Basic MERV 13 High-Capacity Pleated Air Filter
For superior air filtration and efficiency, this MERV 13 pleated filter utilizes 100% electrostatic synthetic media, which offers significantly higher particulate efficiency than regular poly/cotton media pleated filters. These filters capture airborne particles/allergens between 1 and 10 microns, such as bacteria, particles that carry viruses, pollen, mold spores, fine dust and pet dander. The MERV 13 filter media will not promote the growth of bacteria, mold, mildew, or fungi in normal operating environments, and has not been chemically treated. These MERV 13 pleated filters are an ideal upgrade from standard disposable panel filters.
Based on your environment, you may need to change your filter more frequently than once every three months. This product is listed and rated by Underwriters Laboratories.
Backed by extensive 3M research; independent testing and in-home use tests, each Filtrete Filter is designed to meet the specific needs of homeowners and businesses. Filtrete Filters are designed to achieve the proper balance between particle removal efficiency and pressure drop (air flow). An electrostatic charge is applied to the filter media fibers, which attract and capture airborne particles.
In Door Air Quality - You care about the quality of your indoor air, and Filtrete air filters ensure that you breathe the difference. The filterís electrostatically charged media attracts and captures large and microscopic particles, including pollen, mold spores, pet dander, bacteria, smoke and particles that can carry viruses and odors.
Air Conditioning and Furnace Filter Performance Ė Filtrete air filters help properly designed forced air systems function well by cleaning the air without excessive air flow restriction. All Filtrete filters have a pressure drop less than .20 on a water gauge which is less than most competitorís entry level filters.
