Gaithersburg Media Air Cleaners by Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning Yes. Basic air cleaners do filter some of the dust, dander and pollen in your home, emphasis on “some.” But... media air cleaners can help filter a lot more, at a 95% efficiency level. Think of it this way: the sewer grate by your home is only good at preventing the really big branches from being sucked down by the rain water. The same is true of smaller particles…you know, the ones that would be wonderful to prevent from flowing through your HVAC system to the entire house: allergens, chemicals, some odors, etc. Basic 1” air filters might as well be the size of a sewer grate when it comes to their stopping power. Media air cleaners, on the other hand, are determined to get the job done. The active surface of the media air cleaner filter is much larger than the regular, coming in at 10 inches. Basic air filters have to be replaced each month, while media air cleaners typically last up to half a year. Choosing the right air filter for indoor air quality keeps pollutants in check and keeps a healthy environment that contributes to better health further along.
