Are Pleated Filters for You?

If you live in Phoenix, you will often find the air outside your home to be beautiful and clear. The air inside the home on the other hand, can have potential allergens, pet dander, and pollen, along with, mold spores, viruses and bacteria, all of which are made up of particulates, that can be hazardous to the health. Installing pleated air conditioning filters in the home air conditioner can ensure that most of these particulates are trapped, and no more a health hazard.

The filter material in an air filter traps the particulates on the filter surface and ensures that only air is allowed to pass through. You can get filters of various types that have different densities and are very thin. The minimum efficiency reporting value or MERV is the standard system for giving rating to air filters. In these MERV ratings the higher ratings of 20 trap the tiniest particulates, while a rating of 1 will indicate that only large particulates are trapped.

The Need to Opt for Pleated Air Filters

The use of filters leads to them getting clogged with tiny particles, thus reducing the amount of air going through. Pleating or folding an air filter, allows more area to be created. This increases the area where the particles are trapped as well as the area available for air to pass through.

Pleated air conditioning filters do not require to be replaced or cleaned as often as their less expensive counter parts.  However, we still strongly recommend cleaning or replacing air filters monthly, especially during dry or windy seasons.

Most pleated air filter have an MERV rating between 5 and 13, though filters with higher ratings are also available.  These filters can be available in a number of thicknesses and sizes and can be used for furnaces and air conditioners. The pleated filters are an ideal choice for those with weakened immune systems or those prone to sever allergies.

Some of these air filters, which are pleated, are made with synthetic fibers that are electrostatic and this enhances their ability to trap the particles that are not wanted.

You can also opt for filters that can absorb and eliminate odors, if you use those that use carbon fibers or charcoal.

Had my leaking water softener repaired by Hobaica Services. Brandon who came to the house was very knowledgeable, diagnosed the issue quickly, and fixed the problem on a second visit after the required parts came in.7/29/21 -- Called Hobaica again, this time for a rooftop AC that was leaking water into the ceiling, and was able to get an appointment for the same day. Travis arrived at the start of the time window provided, identified the source of the leak, and was able to make the repair. The service call was complete within 1 1/2 hours, including the time it took Travis to run to the hardware store to purchase a length of PVC pipe.9/11/21 -- Juan E serviced our other AC unit that turned out to be low on refrigerant. He got it back up and running quickly, blowing cold air instead of just slightly cooler than room temperature.
