RIVERDALE, N.J., May 20, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Camfil -- the world's leading provider of air filters and clean air solutions -- has published a white paper highlighting how significant long-term savings are possible for building owners and operators simply by switching to low-energy air filters.  An article on Camfil's site -- available at

-- provides an overview of the whitepaper and Camfil's commitment to sustainability and savings.


Energy use by buildings accounts for nearly 40 percent of all energy consumption in the United States.  And within buildings, the HVAC systems that heat, clean, and cool the air account for more than a third of their energy use. For years, potential reductions have gone unachieved simply because less-than-optimal air filters were used.

As the Camfil whitepaper -- "Quick Wins for Energy Savings in Buildings" -- notes, many purchasing decisions are based on initial price, with low-priced filters getting the nod simply because of their lower up-front costs.  But more sophisticated designs -- built for sustainability -- actually lead to dramatically lower lifetime costs, since they maintain peak efficiency longer and need to be replaced and disposed of less often.  HVAC energy consumption can typically be reduced by 30 percent, and because the air filters last at least twice as long as more traditionally designed models, labor and disposal costs can be reduced by 50 percent.

Both the whitepaper and the article discuss how Camfil's unique Life-Cycle Cost (LCC) software can help air filter customers accurately gauge the total cost of ownership (TCO) of any air filter, letting them confidently identify the filter that brings optimal savings.

Meanwhile, low-energy air filters like Camfil's do a better job removing harmful particles from the indoor environment.  This is due to their use of fine fiber media, which performs at an extremely high level because the interstitial holes between the fibers are smaller and will trap smaller particles.

The result: a win for the customer -- for the comfort and health of everyone occupying the building.

The world leader in air filtration systems, Camfil provides clean air solutions for hospitals, hotels, office buildings, educational institutions, and pharmaceutical and biotech companies.  We provide the tools to achieve sustainability, maintain high air quality, and reduce airborne infections -- all while lowering total cost of ownership.  Camfil customers go green without ever sacrificing performance.  For more information, visit us online at, or call us toll-free at 888.599.6620.
