Keep indoor air clean: Maintain a healthy environment
Heavily loaded filters can force dirty, unfiltered air to be pushed around the filter and into the environment without being properly cleaned by the filter! This is particularly an issue for the young, elderly or those with breathing impairments. Indoor air can be far dirtier than outdoor air. Don’t make the problem even worse by not changing your filter at the proper time.
Change filter when system demands- No longer replace filter before required
In many locations, during spring and fall the HVAC system runs far less versus in winter and summer. If you use the same replacement schedule all year, you actually may be paying more for filters by replacing them before they are sufficiently loaded.
Extend Maintenance Cycles-Reduce Maintenance Time
Clogged filters tend to disfigure, allowing unfiltered, dirty air to bypass and go around the filter. This clogs the heat-exchanger fins, blower turbine blades, ducts, etc. Properly changing filters at the proper moment saves maintenance time needed later for cleaning the HVAC components.
Lengthen Lifetime of HVAC system- Less downtime; Reduce Replacement Costs
For every additional hour of run time from an overloaded filter, the HVAC unit’s lifetime is reduced by approximately 1 hour!
Eliminate Maintenance Checks -Reduce Maintenance Costs
In many large buildings, apartments, schools or industrial complexes, there can be hundreds of filters to check. Often maintenance personnel have a schedule to routinely check the filters to view filter status and make a judgment if needing to be replaced. Significant time is wasted on these routine checks. With the FilterPulse™, this cycle can be eliminated as the sensor signals the exact point when the filter is to be changed.
Energy Savings-Lower Costs of Electric Bills
The heavier the workload from a dirty filter, the harder the HVAC system has to operate. The harder the HVAC system works, the more energy demanded to perform the same level of performance. This higher level of energy of course corresponds to an increased energy bill. Increased monthly energy costs due to clogged filter (for $1000 annual heating/cooling costs) are detailed in the graphs below.
