PerfectPleat HC M8
The PerfectPleat HC M8 filter is designed to consistently increase efficiency throughout the service life of the filter. The PerfectPleat HC M8 filter has approximately 25% more media than our standard capacity filter, and is ideal for applications where pleated filters are currently in use and higher performance is desired. It has an initial MERV 8 rating respectively, but the efficiency increases significantly when dust holding begins. PerfectPleat HC M8 filters have distinctive self-supporting characteristics that allow a pleating pattern, which promotes airflow and maximizes dust holding capacity (DHC). Lower pressure drop and higher DHC translate to reductions in energy consumption and operating costs.
Superior Design and Construction
The perimeter frame is constructed from the highest wet-strength 28 pt. beverage carrier board, securely bonded to the media pack. The 1″ model employs three supporting straps on the air-entering and air-leaving sides of the filter to control pleat spacing and support the media pack in the perimeter frame.
Support straps on the air-entering side are used in combination with a triple layer tri-ply support bar on the air-leaving side of the 2″ model to provide additional strength. The support straps and tri-ply support bar ensure integrity against turbulent airflow. The 2″ filter resists crushing and abuse, and provides excellent lateral stability for installation in side-access systems.
The 4″ model utilizes a two-piece die-cut frame with integral pleat spacers on the air-leaving side. Pleat spacing is controlled by straps bonded to the air-entering side and the multiple rows of pleat spacers on the air-leaving side. The pleat spacers also ensure that the pleats remain open during use, maximizing filter life.
DuraFlex® Media – Patented Media DesignUniform-size virgin fibers are assembled in closely controlled blends to create a media that is both self-supporting and consistent in performance. When pleated, DuraFlex media will hold its shape without the wire support characteristic of conventional pleated filters. That means no potential for the formation of rust and safer handling. With the superior resiliency of DuraFlex media and no need for wire support, PerfectPleat HC M8 filters can sustain significant abuse and maintain their shape and pleat spacing. The absence of wire also makes the filter totally incinerable, which can simplify disposal.

Frequently Asked Questions
Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) is a filter industry standard system that rates the overall effectiveness of air filters. Higher value MERV rating equates to finer filtration, meaning fewer dust particles and other airborne contaminants can pass through the filter. Other common ratings found within certain brands and stores includes FPR, MPR. They all follow the same basic principal, the higher the number the greater overall effectiveness of the air filter.
Choosing the correctly sized air filter is important in order to keep air clean in your home. An improperly sized filter may have limited performance. Determining the proper air filter size can be confusing, since filter packages generally display two sets of dimensions. It is important to understand that these dimension sets are the nominal and actual dimensions of the filter, and differences between the two.
The best place to start is our filter search page that can be found at the following link or at the top of every page.
You can search by filter size, part number, model and more.

No spaces, fractions only 1/8, 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, 5/8, 3/4, 7/8.
Most often there will be an arrow on the side of the filter which will indicate which way to insert the filter. The arrow will show which direction the air is to travel through the filter. If there is no arrow the filter can be installed in both directions.
Remember your filter is designed to protect your system first and foremost. Air should be traveling through the filter before your blower and system.
Furnace, AC and HVAC filters are most often measured in inches. A nominal measurement would be a rounded number like 20x25x1, rounded up to the nearest inch. These filters if measured with a tape measure would likely be closer to 19 ½" x 24 ½" x ¾" which would be the actual true exact size.
