Product Description

A 5" MERV 10 Self-Sealing High Performance Filter Designed To Fit A 1" Air Filter Grille * Five-inch deep pleat filter that fits into most 1 inch return air grilles. No retrofitting or installing expensive in duct housings required. * Available in MERV 10 efficiency. * Self-sealing gasket eliminates air by-pass. (Find out why filter bypass should be avoided.) * Increased surface area provides extended lifetime. * Low-pressure drop reduces energy consumption and maintenance and extends useful lifetime of unit. * Available in 8 standard and non-standard sizes, up to 720 square inches. Now, homeowners can enjoy the benefits of a high performance filter without the hassle and expense of retrofitting, with the 5" MERV 10 high performance Practical Pleat. It's unique gasket fits into the one-inch filter slot with the excessive depth of the filter protruding in the duct system. The self-sealing gasket prevents unfiltered air from by-passing the filtering process. biological contaminants Filters that are not self-sealing allow pollutants to be pulled around the filter, filter bypass, and into the ventilation system, escaping the filtration process. As these particles accumulate, they provide nutrients necessary for mold, mildew and other biological contaminants to breed and grow in the ventilation system. These biological contaminants can become airborne and be blown into inhabited areas. The Practical Pleat's self-sealing gasket adapts to imperfections in the filter track, eliminating filter bypass and preserving the integrity of the filter. reduces energy bills An accumulation of these contaminants on the evaporator coil inhibits heat transfer, which make s the unit work harder to heat and cool. In fact, a 0.05 inch build-up of contaminants on the evaporator coil can reduce efficiency and increase energy consumption up to 37% for that unit. 30x increased efficiency The Practical Pleat can capture up to to 30 times more small contaminants than the standard furnace filter it is intended to replace. These filters are designed to protect the heating and cooling equipment and are really 'non-filters' from an indoor air quality standpoint. 433% greater surface area In general, the more efficient a filter is at capturing particles, the greater its resistance to airflow. The Practical Pleat overcomes the increase in resistance to airflow, without sacrifcing efficiency, by extending the surface area of the filter. The Practical Pleat's surface area is 433% greater than a comparable one-inch extended surface pleat and consequently reduces resistance to airflow by 41%. This reduction in resistance to airflow reduces energy consumption, increases air circulation, increases efficiency, decreases maintenance and extends the effective lifetime of the equipmentPack of 1 single filter. Filter can  last 6 -12 months depending on the conditions within the area used.
