In most businesses, little thought is dedicated to how HVAC filters are packaged, organized, and stored. However, air filters affect thousands of dollars in operating expenses for many facilities—especially in sectors such as healthcare, manufacturing, education, and commercial offices.
Given the scope of the potential savings in labor, materials, and energy, every organization should consider optimizing their HVAC filters.
The Hidden Costs of Organizing and Storing HVAC Filters
Joe W. Fly Co. Dallas Branch Manager Will Denton explains how pre-sorted and labeled filters save time and money for facilities managers.
Companies typically have to buy filters in case quantities. If you need different sizes or efficiencies, it’s often necessary to buy entire cases of each type and have all of them shipped at once. Cases of filters are bulky, hard to store and carry—and they’re organized and labeled in whatever way is most convenient for the manufacturer or distributor, rather than according to the needs of the end user. Most filter manufacturers will not break case quantities or customize packaging or labels.
The way filters are packaged has a considerable impact on the amount of time and labor required for sorting and installation. It takes time to dig through pallets and cases of filters, figure out where things go, and organize leftover products for storage. All of the time and space dedicated to cases of filters adds cost.
The Benefits of Conveniently Packaged and Labeled Filters
When filters are packaged economically, workers can carry and replace more filters in a single trip—resulting in less time spent installing filters and lower labor costs. Also, less warehouse space needs to be used to store filters. A simple change in the way air filters are packaged prior to delivery can save time and money—making more resources available for your core business activities that generate revenue.
Just-in-time filter delivery adds additional value by eliminating on-site storage requirements and long lead times for orders.
