MERV 8 Sustainability
Sustainable Air Filters. This differentiates our filter from nearly every retail pleated filter, nearly all of whom use HVAC air filters with a metal backing. The metal backing, while necessary for MERV 11 or MERV 13 media, has some downsides – it can catch on the framing when inserting the filter, making it more difficult to install or possibly damaging the filter, and it can also catch on and cut fingers - no bueno. Also, if the filter is left in too long in wet conditions, there’s a chance the wire could rust and flecks could get into the airstream. No metal means disposal is more environmentally friendly, as well.
