Different HVAC systems can support different types of air filters. Cencal Mechanical performs structural upgrades to your existing furnace or air conditioner to make sure that you can enjoy the most advanced air filter technology.
The most common types of HVAC air filters include:
- Disposable Fiberglass: these filters are affordable but have a low MERV rating. They will block large particles and debris.
- Disposable Pleated: the most common type of filter, these provide better air quality because the pleats create more surface area for filtering.
- Permanent Reusable: a type of filter that can be washed and reused. They are more expensive and require regular cleaning but can last up to 5 years.
- HEPA Filters: these filters are the most efficient at trapping particles and contaminants. They have the highest MERV rating and are commonly used in hospitals and other spaces that are air-quality-sensitive.
