The Media 1 furnace air filter frame mounts a powerful MERV 10 air filter to your furnace or air handler. This furnace air filter removes 85% more pollutants from indoor air compared to standard furnace filters. The Media 1 can easily be mounted in any position and can be sized to a variety of duct openings. Media 1-series units are cost effective requiring no electricity or maintenance, only seasonal filter replacement. Your furnace fan draws air into the filter pad, trapping particles as small as 5 microns. Ordinary furnace filters only filter about 15% of these particles.

Big Clean at a Little Price
The Media 1 furnace air filter frame is a low cost accessory that fits onto almost any home or office air handling unit. The slim 4 inch width makes this furnace filter accessory an easy fit for locations with restricted space. The low cost MERV 10 filter is a huge upgrade for any standard furnace filter. Our Z line pleat system provides great air filtration with very low back pressure for high energy efficiency.
Remove Mold from Your Home Affordably
For even more cleaning power the MERV 10 filter can be treated with Healthful Home Mold Magnet. this spray on treatment can raise the MERV rating by up to 7 levels. It Helps the Filter capture 1000 X more mold spores, bacteria and virus particles. It also does NOT decrease the filter life and last for the life of the filter. Microbes preferentially stick to the bio-molecules applied to the filter.
Which MERV 8 is Best
Different MERV 10 Filters do not perform in the same way on all particle size ranges. Pleated filters have far higher efficiency on medium sized and small sized particles than polyester pads or ring panels. One would think that two filters with the same MERV number would perform in about the same way. This is clearly not the case and performance varies widely with different types of filters.
Pressure Drop is Bad
Another significant difference between MERV10 pleated filters and MERV10 tackified polyester and ring panel filters is that the pleated filters have lower resistance and cause less pressure drop. Even though the media is denser on a pleated filter there is more surface area. This means that the air flowing into the filter is distributed over a wider area. The flat surface of polyester pads and ring panels are limited to their outside dimensions in terms of surface area. Test results again show this difference. A typical tackified polyester pad has a pressure drop of .25″wg at 300 fpm and .46″wg at 500 fpm. A typical 3-ply ring panel has a pressure drop of .19″ wg at 300 fpm and a .46″ wg at 500 fpm. While a typical MERV 10 pleated filter has a pressure drop of .14″ wg at 300 fpm and a .27″ wg at 500 fpm. This increase in static pressure attributable to the tackified polyester pads and ring panels can result in higher energy costs due to longer run times to achieve desired interior temperatures and to HVAC motors having to work harder to move the same amount of air. So not only are tackified polyester pads and ring panels very ineffective on particles of one micrometer or less, they also add to operation costs because of their much higher resistance.
