Filter 40 Times More Particles From Your Home’s Air
When it comes to improving the air quality in your home, media air cleaners are a great step to removing particles like pollen, mold, dander and dust from your air.
Your media air cleaner is a box or cabinet installed in the duct lines as a first line of defense against pollution entering your home’s air flow. While a regular filter might be about an inch thick, the filter in your media air cleaner is more than four inches thick, catching far more particles than the smaller filters.
Media Air Cleaners vs. Regular Filters
The main HVAC difference between a media air cleaner and a standard air filter is size. Conventional air filters are an inch thick while media cleaners are four to five inches thick. This allows for more and better air filtration.
Essentially, media air filters:
- Capture particles that are invisible to the eye, as small as 0.1 microns, as air flows through the system. (A single hair can be more than 30 microns.)
- Can catch up to 98% of particles. These particles can be airborne bacteria particles, mold spores, airborne viruses and more.
- Are up to 40 times more effective than the traditional skinny air filter.
