The Koch Multi-Pleat XL8 MERV 8 furnace filter model 102-700-005 is a high-performance disposable replacement air filter for all gas and oil furnaces, heat pumps, and AC air handlers that use a 15 x 20 x 1 air filter. This filter should have the same, if not higher, efficiency rating as the original equipment manufacturer's air filter media. In some cases, this MERV 8-rated filter will be an upgrade compared to your previous filter. The 102-700-005 replacement air filter size is approximately 14 1/2" x 19 1/2" x 3/4".
The Koch Multi-Pleat XL8 MERV 8 disposable air filters feature a filtering medium that is more efficient and ecologically friendly than most other air filters on the market. Made entirely from recycled materials, this medium achieves MERV 8 efficiency with a low resistance to airflow. It is also unaffected by high humidity and is hydrophobic (non-moisture absorbing). Koch Multi-Pleat XL8 air filters can upgrade existing flat panels as well as MERV 6 & 7 pleated filters currently being used with little increase in resistance. All Multi-Pleat XL8 filters are 30-35% efficient by ASHRAE 52.1-92 and MERV 8 per ASHRAE 52.2-99. Diagonal and horizontal support members provide frame strength, and the filter media pack is sealed to eliminate air bypass. The Koch Multi-Pleat XL8 filters are UL 900 Class 2 listed.
The Koch 102-700-005 air filter media should be checked every month. Adjust the schedule to your needs, but replace the filter every three months at a minimum.
Please refer to your unit's Owner's Manual for instructions on changing your furnace's air filter.
