Maximizing the value of your FM contracts means continuously looking for new ways to reduce costs or increase operational efficiency. Sourcing cheaper air filters may appear to be a good way to reduce your filter spend, but it is unlikely to help you maximize the return on your contract. And could actually result in you missing KPIs, upsetting your client and tarnishing your reputation.
But with so many filter suppliers out there, how can you be sure that you are choosing one that will deliver high quality, reliably, and help you extract maximum value and repeat business from your contracts?
With air pollution in the news virtually every day, awareness of air quality is increasing all the time. Customers expect their filtration system to do more than just protect other parts of the HVAC system and provide defense for the occupants of their building too.
MANN+HUMMEL offer a complete range of HVAC filter products. And, as we have worked closely with FM contractors for many years, we have developed a range of services specifically for FM companies – such as fixed-term and contract-specific pricing.
We also offer filter maps that make filter procurement a breeze. We record the filter requirements of each air handling unit that you service in our ERP system. When it’s time to replace filters, you can order a single filter; all the filters in an air handling unit (AHU); all primary or secondary filters; or a complete system change-out with just a single-line reference. Products are packaged together by AHU and labelled to show exactly where each carton needs to be.
We can also survey your clients’ buildings to determine the best possible filter configuration for each AHU. This will take into consideration the ambient pollution levels and will provide a solution that delivers the correct level of air quality at the lowest possible energy cost – helping you meet KPIs for energy efficiency. This service will also standardize filters in a building or area, to reduce purchase order requisition, stockholding and on-site workload..
In addition to all of the above, our filters come backed by membership of the Eurovent quality assurance program, which independently tests our fine dust products. So you can be confident that our air filters will perform to the high standards that we say they will.
