Upgrade From Your Standard 1 Inch Filter

Did you know that you most likely have more airborne particulates in your air than the standard 1″ air filter can handle? It is true that air filters work wonders when it comes to capturing many of the particulates that circle in the air you breathe. It is also true that getting a filter that is more than the 1″ standard can totally protect you from the harmful particulates in your home or office. Filtersfast.com offers Return Grille Air Filters just for this purpose. These Return Grille Air Filters are 5″ making for an even more efficient filter when it comes to protecting your health and your environment.

We especially suggest the Filters Fast MERV 13 Return Grille Air Filter. According to Cartier King, Filtersfast.com Air Filtration Specialist certified by the National Air Filtration Association (NAFA):

“MERV 13 air filters are the highest recommended air filtration level for most residential applications.”

But why is it the highest recommended air filtrartion level? Well, a lot of it has to do with efficiency. The MERV 13 is one of the highest efficiency ratings available as the U.S. Green Building Council considers a MERV 13 rating the minimum level required to meet its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification. There are five other specific things that make this filter especially useful as well:

1.) The larger surface area and deeper pleats of the 5″ filter make it 15 times more effective at capturing airborne particles than a standard 1″ filter. You most likely have more airborne particulates in your air than your standard 1″ filter is equipped to hold. This causes excess air particles to float back out into your household air and cause allergy flare-ups, sinus issues and other health problems.

2.) When you combine this larger filter with a MERV 13 rating you have one of the market’s best filters. MERV 13 filters remove at least 90 percent of all particles 1.0 – 10.0 microns. Just how big is a micron? Look at the period at the end of this sentence. That is a huge 397 microns!

3.) The life of the filters is subject to the environment it’s installed in, but typically RAG last for 2-3x’s longer than a standard 1” filter.

4.) The foam gasket header on the filters increases particle capturing efficiency, because it helps reduce the air bypass.  Typical 1” filters obviously don’t have this feature.

5.) These only need to be changed 1x per year. They fit just like a regular 1” filter.

Apart from the MERV 13 Return Grille Air Filter, we also offer another option for you to upgrade from your standard 1″ filter:

The Odor Killer Return Grille will eliminate smoke odors, cigarette odors, pet odors, gases and other contaminants from your indoor air. Since this return grille air filter is 5″ deep compared to the standard 1″ air filter, its greater surface area and deeper pleats allow it to catch far more airborne particles and be changed less frequently.

So this season, don’t just deal with the sneezing, coughing and other symptoms associated with poor air quality. Protect your health, your environment and your wallet with Filtersfast.com.

 

 

Frozen Delights

Today is Frozen Food Day which means it is time to celebrate all of the delicious foods and snacks you have stored in your freezer. Who invented frozen food you might ask? Well, frozen food has always been around in climates that were cold enough for food to freeze. In 1924, Clarence Birdseye is credited with inventing the quick freezing method, which produces the type of frozen foods that we know today.

To help ensure that your frozen delights are of the best quality, Filters Fast has a few suggestions:

The Frigidaire Universal Icemaker Installation Kit gives you ready made ice from your freezer right when you need it. This kit comes with an easy-to-use instruction guide for trouble-free installation. It is compatible with upright freezers and many other brands such as Electrolux and White-Westinghouse.

The Frigidaire PureAir Ultra Refrigerator Air Filter eliminates foul odors from both your freezer and refrigerator. This will keep your fridge free of food smells such as onion, garlic and fish. This long lasting air filter is easy to change and replace and can last up to 6 months. In addition to fresh smells, it will improve the taste of ice and prevents the cross-contamination of foods.

The HM Digital TM-1 Digital Thermometer is an industrial grade digital thermometer that can be used in a variety of different applications. It can be used not only for freezers/coolers, but also for aquariums, kitchens, bakeries, motors, generators and ventilation systems. This thermometer is small, compact and very versatile.

Celebrating this day is actually quite easy. Simply put, all you have to do is eat frozen meals.  Frozen dinners, ice cream, or anything else you can think of, will be a great way to celebrate the occasion. So put down that sandwich and enjoy those frozen delights!
