Commercial HVAC Filter Service
 


Global One Supply is a new Hampton Roads, Veteran Owned small business and IFMA chapter member that specializes in supporting facility maintenance organizations. We have developed a HVAC filter delivery service that is in place on Langley AFB. The 633rd Civil Engineering Squadron has given us rave reviews and site the considerable savings in warehouse use and increase in technician efficiency. We actually deliver filter kits to the point of use. No technician windshield time to gather supplies. They go straight to the mechanical room and complete the work order. This added service comes with a very competitive filter price. That's right, you get point of use delivery for the price you pay now for filters. In addition you lose the warehouse space requirement. With just in time deliveries, there is no need to maintain dedicated bulk storage.

 

I'm Andrew Jackson and the company owner. I would like to introduce you to our service and hope that you allow us to provide a quote for your consideration. As a former facility manager at NASA I understand the importance of timely preventive maintenance. I also know how the PM process often takes a back seat to reactive work. That is why I developed this process. Helping technicians gain wrench time is likely the one key component to any efficient maintenance program. It gives them more time to fight reactive maintenance fires.

Global One Supply offers a subscription replacement service for HVAC filters. Changing HVAC filters is the #1 way to protect the life of an A/C unit, and our goal is to make it hassle-free for Facility and Property Managers as well as Home Owners.

 

How it Works

5 Minute Signup - Give us the Size and Schedule to Receive a Quote

 

We work with superintendents, building managers and facility coordinators to find out what size filters every unit in a building needs. We then create a PM (preventive maintenance) kit for each piece of equipment. That kit contains the right size and quantity needed to complete the change. Here's the good part, we use your schedule to assure each kit is delivered just in time and to the point of use. Kits can also contain drive belts, single use grease dispensers and bio tablets, just to name a few items. Roll goods type filters are cut to size as part of the kitting process. 

 

As a facility professional, you know that for jobs like this, over half the time can be consumed in gathering materials. If you can increase efficiency by 50% and not significantly change the existing cost, it's a win-win for everyone

Why Changing Your Air Filter Regularly is so Important
 

Why should I change my air filter?

1. A dirty air filter is the #1 reason for HVAC system failure. A dirty filter restricts the air flow into your HVAC systems air handler. This restricted air flow places additional strain on the air handler fan motor and could, over time, burn out the motor and cause your system to overheat and ultimately fail. Filter replacement is a small price to pay to extend to life of one of the biggest financial investments in your home. 


2. A dirty air filter makes your fan motor work harder and consumes more energy. One of the easiest and quickest ways to reduce your energy bill is to replace your air filter.

3. A dirty air filter reduces the air quality in your home. Poor home air quality can aggravate allergies and asthma, particularly children’s allergies. Change your filter for your family’s health.

4. A dirty air filter makes your heating and air-conditioning systems and your ducts get dirty faster. This can lead to costly cleaning expenses or to a need to replace your units sooner than you expected.

5. A dirty air filter increases your energy bills. You can see an immediate, short-term cost saving s when you replace your air filter.

6. A dirty air filter increases your carbon footprint. Changing your filter reduces the amount of energy your home consumes. It’s an easy and inexpensive way to be environmentally responsible. 


Where is my air filter located?

Your air filter is most likely located right next to your furnace or air conditioning system air handler. The air handler is the large box containing the fan and fan motor. The air handler pulls air in from the house through the “return” duct system, and then blows the air through the heating or cooling system and back into the house through the duct system. The air filter is typically located at the point where the return duct enters the air handler. Look for a 1” wide hinged or removable cover. The air filter will be inside.

Increasingly, air handlers are being installed in attics. This sometimes limited space will require installation of the air filter in the return. The filter is accessed by removing the grate covering the return duct. It is now unusual to have several returns in a house, with an air filter installed in each return.

Many houses have more than one HVAC system. Each system will typically have at least one air filter. Therefore your house may have air filters located at the air handler AND in the returns. You should check each possible location to make sure you have located all of your air filters.


What are my air filter dimensions?

Air filter sizes come in a variety of dimensions. The most common width is 1”, but height and length will vary by manufacturer. Most standard filters print the dimensions on the filter frame. You can use those filter dimensions to select the appropriate size replacement filter. 

Unfortunately, some filters are not marked. In this case you will need to measure the dimensions of your existing filter. Please measure them twice before entering your filter size into the filter quote request form at Global One Supply.com. 

Please also be aware that many filters may have actual dimensions that are not exact whole numbers—for example 17½” x 23¾” x 1”. If this is the case, you should round the fractional dimensions up to the nearest whole number. In the example, this would require a filter with nominal dimensions of 18” x 24” x 1”.

What kind of filter should I use?

You should use an air filter that offers the highest level of efficiency without damaging your HVAC system. Air filter efficiency is the measure of how well the filter does its job of filtering air before it enters the air handler. An air filter “cleans” the air by serving as a physical barrier to particles hanging in the air. Manufacturers use a number of materials in air filters, such as fiberglass. Additionally, configuration of these materials can impact the filter’s efficiency. For example, a pleated air filter provides greater surface area to trap particles than a flat panel filter and will thus capture more particles even if made out of an identical material. A thicker filter, say, 2” instead of 1”, will similarly capture more particles.

You may be surprised to learn that simply using the most efficient filter available is generally not the right answer. This is because as filter efficiency increases, there is a corresponding increase in the level of air flow resistance. A highly efficient filter may restrict air flow to a level that will damage your HVAC system by placing additional strain on the fan motor. Most HVAC systems should use a filter having a MERV rating no higher than 11. Older systems should use a filter with a MERV rating of only 8 or lower. Some older systems are required to use a flat panel fiberglass filter that offers minimal air resistance but which regrettably provides little if any air cleaning at all. These filters carry no MERV rating at all. At the other end of the spectrum, a filter rating higher than 11 is usually overkill for most residential requirements and is generally needed only for extreme allergy environments.

 

What is a MERV rating?

MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Rating Value. This is an industry standard rating system that allows you to compare filters made by different manufacturers. A MERV rating is a numerical value ranging from 1 (lowest efficiency) to 16 (highest efficiency) and tells the consumer how well the filter captures and holds dirt and dust of a specified size range. The chart below shows the MERV ratings, corresponding particle size ranges, and efficiency level as measured by the percentage of particles captured.

Should I use the highest rated filter available?

No. You should use a filter rating that corresponds to the requirement of your HVAC system. If you are not sure contact your installer and HVAC maintenance company. 

Using a filter rating that is too high for your HVAC system may cause damage. Higher rated filters offer resistance to air flow that may place too much strain on the fan motor in your air handler, leading to HVAC system failure. 

Using a filter rating that is too low will prevent you from maximizing the level of clean air in your home.

It is worth the effort to get this right. Call your HVAC system installer or maintenance company and ask them what air filter MERV rating they recommend for your system.


Why should I use a high efficiency air filter instead of the less expensive blue fiberglass filter?

A more efficient filter is more effective at removing particles from the air as it enters your HVAC system. Conversely, a less efficient filter allows more dirt and dust into your system. This dust and dirt will either land somewhere in the system or circulate back into the house. Dust and dirt on critical parts of your HVAC system will increase your fuel consumption and increase repair and maintenance bills. Dust and dirt circulated back into your home is just plain unhealthy. Who needs that?

Ironically, the effectiveness of low efficiency air filters actually increases as the filter loads up with dirt and dust. There are two problems, though. First, it takes time for the filter to be loaded enough to get a beneficial effect so that everything that gets by the filter ends up either in your system or back in your home. Second, eventually the filter can become so dirty that the system experiences a pressure drop which can burn out the fan motor. To prevent this you have to change the filter, which takes you right back to the first problem. For the brief time that you get a small benefit from your low efficiency filter is far outweighed by the problems it creates.

A high efficiency filter is immediately beneficial because it works right away. This filter also needs frequent changing for the same reason, it can become overloaded and damage your system.

The cost-benefit equation is simple: For a few extra dollars you can ensure that your HVAC system is as clean as possible and the air in your home is effectively filtered just by using an efficient air filter that is changed regularly. It’s a simple task that Global One Supply makes even simpler.


Will I save money using a more efficient filter?

Very likely. This really depends on where you live and how you use your system. Experts have estimated that the average cost reduction derived from using a high efficiency filter is approximately 10%. This cost savings includes the reduction in fuel consumed by your HVAC system, and reduced repair and maintenance costs. This does not include, however, the cost of system replacement resulting from failure to replace your filter.  

 

It's important to note that there are other ways of improving your overall home efficiency to complement regular filter replacement.  Upgrading HVAC units to high-efficiency units, replacing dated home insulation with efficient home insulation, and upgrading or repairing old windows all help to make your home more efficient and green.

Will I have cleaner air in my home by using a more efficient air filter?

Absolutely. A more efficient air filter is designed to do a better job of cleaning the air as it enters your HVAC system. Clean air into the system means clean air is circulated back into your home. That’s great news for your family’s health.

How long will my filter last?

Filter replacement frequency varies from house to house and from place to place. Global One Supply air filters are designed to last up to 90 days before needing replacement. If you have pets, or if you live in a location that has more dust, pollen or similar air particles, you may need to change your filter more frequently. We recommend checking your filter monthly. If you see that it is becoming dirty more quickly, let us know and we will increase the frequency of your filter deliveries.
