FILTERSCAN-WiFi-Angle

FILTERSCAN® WiFi Air Filter Monitor is the second-generation version of our innovative FILTERSCAN Air Filter Monitor.

FILTERSCAN WiFi tracks the change in differential pressure due to air filter clogging and issues an alert when the pressure doubles compared to what it was when a clean filter was installed. When combined with the AirFilterSentry Notification Service it can also send a text and/or e-mail to any smartphone (Android or iOS), or Internet-connected tablet or desktop computer (PC or Mac).

As an HVAC professional you know 

  • Servicing filters too often results in unnecessary expense from the costs of the filters themselves and the time required to service them.
  • Waiting too long to service a filter allows pressure to build up in an HVAC system, thereby increasing energy costs by lengthening the time fans must operate to move hot or cold air throughout the system, and eventually causing the system to fail.

Installing the FILTERSCAN WiFi Air Filter Monitor on your HVAC clients' systems allows you to monitor their air filters and eliminate this guesswork. Don't take our word for it. Hear what Tim Carter of AskTheBuilder.com has to say about clogged air filters.

 

 

How Does FILTERSCAN WiFi Work?

FILTERSCAN WiFi connects to any wireless router in the homeowner's home that has an operational WPS (WiFi Protected Setup) button. Once connected, the FILTERSCAN WiFi communicates with a cloud database server, which sends alerts to any Internet-connected device the homeowner has selected to receive notices, as long as they have signed up for the AirFilterSentryTM Notification Service. The first year of service is FREE.

The AirFilterSentry notification subscription service is fully customizable, so that the homeowner can set who will receive clog alerts and what the text or email message will state. Besides the user’s own device, the user can have alerts sent to friends, family members, or you, their HVAC service provider. The AFS service costs the homeowner only pennies a day.

Before a homeowner can designate you to receive air filter clog alerts, you must be a member of the AirFilterSentry Pro Network. Signing up is FREE and takes just a few minutes. Just go to www.cleanalertwifi.com, press the "Sign up" link, and follow the instructions for obtaining a FREE Pro subscription.

When you upgrade to AirFilterSentry Pro+, you can also obtain an on-demand report of the current status of the air filter on every system you are connected to. Consider how much more efficiently you can schedule your service calls with this information at your fingertips.

FILTERSCAN WiFi Installation is Straightforward!

As with the FILTERSCAN, installing the FILTERSCAN® WiFi Air Filter Monitor is straightforward, and the unit easily recalibrates each time the air filter is serviced. Because the FILTERSCAN® WiFi calibrates itself every time a filter is serviced, it can be used with a wide variety of filters. This allows your clients to change air filter models as desired.

The FILTERSCAN WiFi can be installed upstream, downstream, or differentially across the air filter (using an available tubing kit). It is compatible with single- and multi-speed blower HVAC systems and most VAV (Variable Air Volume) blower systems.
