I still maintain the pair of fine wire fine mesh filters upstream to extend the life of this Bestair filter. If you have pets, children, or allergy sufferers in your home or business, replace filters more often to maintain superior indoor air quality and keep your energy costs low. The filter media for Skuttle 000-0448-001 air cleaner, also known as Skuttle 448-1, can be used in air purifiers that require 25% 26quot x 16% 26quot x 5% 26"” media filter cartridges. The Skuttle 000-0448-001 is an efficient air filter cartridge that significantly removes airborne particles such as dust, dust mites, pet dander, pollen, mold spores and other allergens from the indoor air of your home or office.
The maximum temperature rating of this MERV 8 air filter is 180 degrees Fahrenheit (82 degrees Celsius) with continuous service. It's only a few dollars more than the MERV 8 filters, but they won't starve my home until I have no airflow like a MERV 13 would. With numerous cats living in the house, I'm sure this MERV11 filter will do the trick to reduce the amount of cat hair and dander in the air.
