Looking to cut energy costs?Rising energy costs weigh heavily on your company'sbottom line. If you're looking to save money,consider switching the fi lters used in your airfi ltration system.Although you may be tempted to pick an inexpensivefi lter to cut costs now, tests show it willincrease your utility bills — your air quality will suffergreatly as a result, and repeated replacementswill have you actually spending more in the end.Not to mention the duct-cleaning, coil-cleaning andadditional facility maintenance costs that resultfrom failed fi lters.For a lower total cost of ownership, you want ahigh-quality fi lter that will do it all — run effi ciently,clean air thoroughly and last longer. The advancedECI system simplifi es the selection process foryou. The index factors in multiple air handling andfi ltration variables to then help you easily identifythe highest quality fi lters with the lowest cost ofownership.ECI DerivationThe Energy Cost Index value is calculated usinglife cycle cost modeling software that has beenused and validated with real-life testing for over 15years. The calculated value is then converted intoa star rating with the highest star value translatingto the lowest energy consumption. This data isavailable for products of all manufacturers.ECI - A tool that defines the totalvalue of a filter in your system.AP-ElevenDurafi l ® 2VAeropleat ® IV30/30 ®ENERGYEFFICIENCYRiga-Flo ®Aeropac ®S-Flo ® Riga-VCamfi l Farr's new Energy Cost Index is an easyway to compare the energy effi ciency of our fi l-ters and a competitors' fi lter so you can choosethe one that offers the best value. Based upona fi ve star scale, the Energy Cost Index is anindicator of what a fi lter will cost over its lifetime.The best rating — fi ve stars — indicates that thefilter is one of the most energy-efficient, longestlastingfilters available. Five stars should be yourselection if you are seeking the most cost-effectivefilter. The energy savings from star level tostar level can be significant.Average Filter Energy Use in $ by Star ValueFinal FiltersPrefi lters$56.00 $104$95.00 $111.00$132.00 $121.00$181.00 $125.00$227.00 $135.00Amounts calculated using life-cycle costing software, 10¢ a kilowatthour, 60% fan effi ciency and 2000 cfm per fi lter.Learn more about the fi ve-starrating at www.camfi lfarr.com.Choosing a fi lter solely on fi rst-cost can lead toa much higher system cost in increased energyusage.
