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.

July '22: Welp, of course the older AC goes out in the Phoenix summer on a long holiday weekend but Hobaica saved our holiday! Called the emergency line and they were able to get a technician (John M) on site within 2 hours. John was very helpful in explaining the situation and helping evaluate the options, very knowledgeable, informative, efficient, and of course top notch customer service.As I've used Hobaica twice in less than a year on two systems, I'll be relying on them in the future for electrical, plumbing, and HVAC needs.Nov '21: Of the 5 - 7 separate HVAC companies that came to give a quote, they were the only ones to provide more than one option based on the specific needs of the space and its use.My only criticism is regarding specifics of installation that I now have questions on, that should've been hammered out beforehand.

J. Miranda was so helpful and replied to our request right away! Called other places for emergency repair on our AC and they wouldn't be able to send someone for 3 days! Anyone who lives in AZ knows waiting that long is not an option especially during the summer! J. Miranda was friendly and took the time to explain what needed fixing. Will recommend! Thank you again!

Great experience receiving estimate. Quick scheduling of service. Knowledgeable service techs. Most importantly, they delivered peace of mind, which can't be purchased.

Great guys to work with. Knowledgable, efficient, professional.A follow up concern we had about our new unit was responded to quickly & well. Nothing wrong with the equipment, but it was retested and we were educated more about our new system by our tech.

Grayson Vu was a very knowledgeable and professional service tech. He was on time and took his time checking things out. He even recommended something to improve our air flow and comfort. Great company and great rep!

John and Jared came out today to take a look at my air conditioning unit. I live in a condo where I can’t see my unit but noticed some water dripping from the roof. They weren’t just on time, they were a little early which helped free up the rest of my day.They found that the system was running as it should be and let me know that the water was dripping because the condensation line was disconnected. Super easy fix with a little bit of glue, and they did not create worry where there was none just to add to the bill.As if that wasn’t good enough, they were incredibly nice and easy to talk to. Not nice because it’s required- just really genuine people. I was not expecting to have such an easy and inexpensive experience in Phoenix during hot, muggy monsoon season. Thank you both for making my day!

We recently had our air conditioning go out on Tuesday and on Friday a new unit was installed. The service has been fantastic. Could not have asked for a faster more friendly company.Zach and Gio were amazing in getting the unit installed and walking us through the new thermostat.

Grayson came out and was on time, and very nice. He took extra time to diagnose a potential problem, and even re-secured some wire mesh (to keep birds out) that had been blown off from the wind. He answered all my questions, will do business with hobaica again.
