6 Reasons Why You Need to Install Cottonwood Filter Screens Now

The hearty cottonwood tree can grow to be 100 feet tall. They’re tall, majestic, and, frankly, a pain in the you-know-what for building managers. Their white, fluffy seedlings are sucked into rooftop HVAC units, impairing air flow, reducing filter life, and increasing repair costs. HVAC units may also need weekly cleaning. With spring approaching, now is the time to protect your units from spring debris, with cottonwood filter screens.

The Benefits of Cottonwood Filter Screens

Air intake filter screens, often referred to as cottonwood filter screens, are the easiest and most effective way to protect rooftop equipment from cottonwood, leaves, bugs and other debris. PreVent® air intake filter screens, part of the PreVent system, are simply the best cottonwood filter screens you can buy. They fit over the open, ventilated areas of your rooftop HVAC units, and are entirely customizable.

  6. PreVent works. Recently, Japanese sake company Gekkeikan installed PreVent air intake filter screens at their state-of-the-art North American brewery in Folsom, California. Air and temperature control are critical when making great sake, and Gekkeikan relies heavily on a 180-ton Daikin chiller to cool their 52,200 square foot plant and warehouse. Unfortunately, their facility is surrounded by trees, including cottonwoods. Those cottonwood seeds were continuously causing problems and shutting down equipment. They needed cottonwood filter screens, and we were happy to help. The entire cost of the project, including materials and installation, was less than 1% of their annual HVAC investment. But as a result, their HVAC cleaning costs have decreased by two-thirds, and they have practically eliminated HVAC downtime.
