The Koch Multi-Pleat XL8 MERV 8 furnace filter is a high performance disposable replacement air filter for all gas and oil furnaces, heat pump and AC air handlers that use a 16 x 20 x 4 air filter.
This filter typically has a higher efficiency rating as the original equipment manufacturers air filter media. Higher efficiency equals lower operating costs for the equipment owner. In many cases this MERV 8 rated filter will be an upgrade compared to most filters that are typically provided with the equipment.
The size of the 102-700-016 replacement air filter is approximately 15 1/2" x 19 1/2" x 3 3/4".
The Koch Multi-Pleat XL MERV 8 Multi-Pleat XL8 disposable air filters features 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 low resistance to airflow. It is also unaffected by high humidity and is hydrophobic (non-moisture absorbing). Koch Multi-Pleat XL8 MERV 40 air filters can upgrade existing flat panels as well as MERV 6 & 7 pleated filters currently being used with little increase in resistance. Diagonal and horizontal support members provide frame strength and the filter media pack is sealed to eliminate air bypass. The Koch Multi-Pleat XL filters are UL 900 Class 2 listed.
