Improving your home’s defenses against harmful particles starts with your HVAC system. The air that moves through your home has to run through your HVAC, and that means you want to focus on the source. With an added media air cleaner to your system, you will filter out much more of the pollutants that can negatively harm your family.
Essential for improving your home’s indoor air quality, a media air cleaner is a cabinet you place in the return air duct of your forced air system. When air passes through your HVAC system, the media air cleaner will trap the harmful airborne particles with its filter before they spread through your house.
These highly effective filters will pull dander, pollen, mold and dust from the air and stop them from recirculating. Upgrading from your conventional air filter to a media air cleaner is a matter of inches. The conventional filter is only an inch thick, as opposed to the four or five inches of protection that a media air cleaner can provide.
All of that added thickness means that a media air cleaner can filter up to 40 times better than your traditional filter. It can trap particles as tiny as 0.1 microns, and up to 98 percent of airborne particles that contain bacteria, mold spores or viruses.
MACs are simple, yet effective. They can also last longer than your normal air filter and require replacing just once every 6-12 months. You can also increase the amount of filtering you want for your home by upgrading your media air cleaner to a higher MERV rating.
