Plano Media Air Cleaners by Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning Yes. Basic air cleaners are able to 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. Picture it this way: the sewer grate in your street is only good for keeping the really big branches from being sucked down by the rain water. The same is true for smaller particles…you know, the ones that would be great 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 in terms of their stopping power. Media air cleaners, on the other hand, can get the job done. The active surface of the media air cleaner filter is greater in size than the regular, coming in at 10 inches. Basic air filters need to be replaced each month, while media air cleaners typically last up to half a year. Using the right air filter for indoor air quality keeps pollutants in check and maintains a healthy environment that leads to better health as time goes on.
