Installing permanent metal filters frames in your HVAC system results in cost savings across all key operational areas associated with filters, including:
- Filter purchases
- Storage and packaging
- Energy efficiency
- Labor for filter change-outs
- Maintenance and repairs
Joe W. Fly Co. San Antonio Branch Manager Will Fawcett explains the benefits of installing permanent metal filter frames.
What Is a Permanent Metal Filter Framing System?
Many companies use disposable filters year after year simply because that is what was in their unit when they occupied the building, and they are used to buying a readily available commodity-type product. While continuing to use cheap disposable filters may seem like the most cost-effective option in the short term, there are significant costs associated with storing and handling bulky disposable filters.
You can mitigate these costs by installing a permanent metal frame in your HVAC unit. Metal frames can be used to hold replaceable filter media that is much more efficient than traditional disposable filters—especially with custom frames manufactured by Joe W. Fly Co.
How Custom Metal Frames Reduce Lifecycle Costs for HVAC Filters
A custom-designed metal frame system will typically have lower total costs compared to using disposable filters of comparable efficiency. First of all, you can save on filter purchases with lower-cost filter media. You can also reduce a variety of operating expenses related to your HVAC system.
Labor and storage costs can be substantially lower because media filters are lighter, more compact, and much easier to transport and store. A single worker might easily be able to transport five times as many filters compared to carrying bulky disposables. Engineers also save time because there is no need to use tape or spacers to fill in gaps between filters. And compact media filters take up less room than manufactured disposable filters, persevering valuable storage space in your facility.
Custom metal frames with media filters also increase energy efficiency and improve indoor air quality by eliminating air bypass in your HVAC unit. This also helps evaporator coils stay clean—reducing maintenance and repair costs over the long term. Companies using permanent metal filter frames can go as long as 10 years without needing to clean their coils.
Metal filter frames become even more cost-effective when paired with a turnkey delivery and installation service that makes new filters available just in time so you receive them exactly when you are ready to change them. This solution completely eliminates storage and labor issues, while guaranteeing air filters are available when needed and installed correctly in your system.
