    Flanders PrecisionAire Pre-Pleat 40 review

Flanders PrecisionAire Pre-Pleat 40  :

This whole-house air purifier from Flanders is a replacement for a forced-air heating/cooling system’s filter.

  • MERV Rating: 8
  • Moisture resistant die-cut frame
  • Metal pleat backing
  • UL Class II
  • Effective against pollen, dust, dust mites, household fibers, pet dander, mold spores, and bacteria

This is a rugged, industrial grade disposable pleated air filter. It features a synthetic fiber filtering medium that is laminated to an expanded metal backing. This combination is then folded into an accordion pleat arrangement to increase filtering surface. This greater filtering surface allows more effective filtration while keeping airflow resistance low. The media pack is encased and sealed within a die-cut, moisture resistant frame. Performance level is MERV 8.

Flanders PrecisionAire Pre-Pleat 40 review

This filter replacement for a standard furnace filter initially needs professional installation, and there are better choices. Ineffective at removing smoke. Filters dust, smoke, and pollen with little noticeable restriction of airflow through the forced-air heating/cooling system. Relatively high filter costs.

Flanders PrecisionAire Pre-Pleat 40 review scores :

Overall score for the Flanders Precisionaire Pre-Pleat 40 is mainly how well the model removed dust and smoke from a test chamber, plus quietness for room purifiers and airflow resistance for whole-house units.
Dust/pollen/smoke removal: How well models cleared air of fine clay dust and cigarette smoke. Ones that scored well for dust removal should perform comparably for pollen. Airflow resistance: How freely air passes through a whole-house unit.
