Our Filters Look Different- Because they are Different
Our Founder, Les Oakley, is a graduate in Mechanical Engineering from North Carolina State University. He is considered an industry expert in the field of fluid dynamics and particle science as it relates to the behavior of small solid or liquid particles in air streams. He started his career as a test engineer at the Harris Nuclear Plant in New Hill North Carolina. During his time at the Nuclear Power Facility, Les concentrated on state of the art filtration systems that captured radioactive particles in post-accident conditions. As part of his qualification for those responsibilities Les attended classes at Harvard University’s Medical School for Public Health. He received certification for the design and testing of Nuclear Post Accident Filtration Systems. Les left Duke Energy to start an Industrial Filtration Manufacturing and Sales Company. His company concentrated on manufacturing and selling filtration systems that eliminated hazardous aerosols and particulates from industrial processes. Les believed that the workers in manufacturing facilities deserved better working conditions and improving the air quality in these facilities was a significant way of doing this.
Les has the same passion for improving the health and quality of life of people in their own homes. This led to the creation of FilterFresh Air. Les looked practically at all of the features a great home filter should have and created a laboratory to independently verify the filtration qualities he valued most. Our passion for clean air goes hand in hand with the other features a filter should possess. Finally, Les thought that the best filter in the world could not do its job unless the homeowner did his job in changing it out at the proper time. That is when Les created Auto Ship- a subscription service that ships filters to you at the proper time for you to change them out.
