    PollenTec has designed a unique new HVAC air filter that is as effective as it is durable. The PollenTec Advanced Long Life Filters can last up to five years, are washable, reusable and very easy to clean. What many people don’t realize is that over 300 million disposable air filters end up in landfills every year. Using one PollenTec filter over a five year period significantly reduces the waste impact in landfills nationally.

    Research reports say that more than 50 million people in North America are affected by allergies and almost 55% of the population test positive for at least one or more airborne allergens. PollenTec filters are designed to remove those allergens efficiently and effectively. All PollenTec air filters are made from the patented PollenTec material that has been tested and certified in a hospital setting. Extensive testing was conducted by the European Center for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF), and verified that 100% of grass pollens, 99.71% of birch pollen, 93.1% of Stinging Nettle-pollen and 90.9% of Ragweed pollen were captured by the PollenTec filter media.

    The PollenTec Air Filter incorporates dual panel multi-layer technology: The filter utilizes four cross directional layers which provides unsurpassed performance and durability. The first two layers capture all airborne pollens and the majority of other microscopic particles and the second two layers ensure that remaining particles are trapped. The PollenTec Filter media captures allergen size particles as small as .3 microns ? (1 micron = 1/24,000th of an inch). The PollenTec Filter media is made from proprietary precisely spun 100% high grade polyester followed by a patented coating process, attracting pollen like a magnet.

    PollenTec Costs & Cost Savings: PollenTec air filters average retail price is $92.00 and are available to purchase directly on www.pollentec.com to homeowners, DIYers, HVAC companies, commercial & residential builders and contractors. The average cost of a MERV 8 pleated filter is $15.00 to $20.00 and up. Replacing that filter a minimum of at least six times per year will cost on average, $95.00. Using the PollenTec Filter results in a savings of more than 295% over five years, when compared to using other popular throw away filter brands.
