MERV 5 fiberglass non-pleated air filters provide up to 20% efficiency for filtering particles between 3 and 10 microns in size (such as mold spores,. MERV 5 fiberglass non-pleated air filters provide up to 20% efficiency for filtering particles between 3 and 10 microns in size (such as mold spores, dust aids, and cement dust). They capture contaminants more efficiently than MERV 4 pleatless air filters. Non-pleated panel air filters are installed in HVAC systems to capture contaminants in the air stream.
This improves indoor air quality and prevents contaminants from accumulating on the equipment and damaging it. These flat air filters are commonly used to capture large particles between 3 and 10 microns in size (such as mold spores and cement dust). Non-pleated panel polyester air filters or fiberglass air filters are commonly used in furnaces and central air systems in residential and commercial buildings. They are designed to be thrown away when used up.
A filter's MERV rating measures how efficiently it removes contaminants from the air stream based on the size of the particles it can effectively capture. The higher the MERV rating, the more effectively the filter traps small particles. An Aerostar oven air filter helps keep your HVAC unit running efficiently by removing dirt and reducing strain on the engine. Note that the “actual” filter size, that is, the size shown by the tape measure, should be used when creating a filter with this tool, not a nominal filter size.
If you have pets, children, or allergy sufferers in your home or business, replace filters more often to maintain superior indoor air quality and keep your energy costs low.
