HVAC Filters made from recycled materials

An interesting product has come out from Alen Corporation, an air filter for your HVAC units made from 100% recycled materials. On the face of it this seems like a no brainier as long as the filters actually work and aren’t cost prohibitive.

I initially found the story on Ecofriend (http://www.ecofriend.org/entry/eco-gadgets-alen-corp-debuts-home-air-filter-made-from-recycled-plastic-bottles/) and the article while interesting is a little short on the details of the product.

For a product evaluation we need to go to the manufacturer’s website’s product page (http://www.alencorp.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=55) where we find that the overall performance is pretty good, certainly at the high end for performance and that the price point isn’t excessive. I am a long time asthma sufferer and currently use a power electro-static filter in my HVAC systems, but I may give these a try as they would give equivalent performance without the electricity cost.

As always I thank you for your time and interest. Please take the time to Digg, Stumble Upon or add to the other social network of your choice to help me spread the word about these issues. Please forward any questions or suggestions to: askthefm@gmail.com
