Increased focus on the indoor air quality (IAQ) and its effect on human health and well-being has led to stricter regulatory requirements concerning air filtration. Beyond health concerns, air filters and filtration media also figure significantly into amount of energy consumed in operating an HVAC system. A filter media with a lower resistance to airflow reduces the burden on HVAC system motor, so the system can deliver the required air flow, while reducing energy consumption.
One of the primary challenges in designing effective air filters is the microscopic size of the types of particulate that must be captured. To meet the demand for higher degrees of filtration, the HVAC air filter industry has applied the advantageous characteristics of synthetic nonwoven materials to create a more effective air filtration media, which offers both a performance and cost advantage over traditional materials for air filters. Synthetic nonwoven materials are better able to trap particulate matter while also providing the benefit of lower airflow resistance.
