The Xextex Corporation - The New HVAC Air Filter That Pays For Itself and More!

[2/01/18] Air X-TEX™, our Patented HVAC (Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning) High Capacity, Heavy Duty, Mechanical Merv 8 air filter invention, is the first air filter to utilize as its principal component, a filter media made from upcycled PET plastic bottles. Built-in fabric waves create increased dust holding capacity which greatly extends our filter’s life and performance. Extensive Air X-TEX filter field testing results have shown our Merv 8 filters to be more efficient and longer lasting than conventional air filters, while being competitively priced. Air X-TEX filters reduce energy costs and CO2 emissions from energy production and consumption, by over 17 percent, based on national averages. Finally, we can all breathe easier! Jerry M.
