A more economical solution to improving air quality in your home is to install a media filter cabinet. The media cabinet allows you to replace your 1” deep furnace filter with a pleated filter that is 4” deep and can trap and remove smaller particles of dust, pet dander, germs, and allergens. The media filter cabinets can also help prolong the life of your furnace by removing the particles that can clog your system. The 4” deep filters only need to be replaced every three months to a year, so it makes maintenance easier. The MERV rating your will receive from installing the media cabinet depends on the filter you buy—some 4” filters offer MERV ratings of 8 or 10.
It’s more cost-effective to install a media cabinet when you are replacing your entire system, but we can install it at any time so you can change your filter less frequently while you remove more allergens and other particles in the air.
