Air Intake Filter and Hail Guard Protection
|This photo shows hail damage to the coils. Damaged coils don’t permit proper airflow and will reduce efficiency, increase energy consumption, increase compressor head pressure and reduce the life of the equipment.
|Adding a 2″ – 3″ stand-off frame on the rooftop unit creats a space between the coils and the air intake filter. When hit by hail, the filter will help to absorb the impact of the hail and deflect it away from the coil.
|Air Intake filter and hail guard assembly fully installed. Filter is mounted to the stand-off frame using stud adapters that permit easy removal without the use of tools.
