Why You Should Consider Upgrading to the Healthy Climate 11 Media Air Cleaner

Posted: 2019-07-09

The quality of air in your home has an immediate impact on your family’s overall health and comfort. According to the National Air Filtration Association (NAFA), about 95 to 98 percent of indoor air is made up of particles smaller than one micron. These particles include smoke, viruses, bacteria, and dust that can damage the lungs.

These air pollutants can pose danger to your family’s health, especially if you have children or the elderly in your home. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics declares that children are more susceptible to indoor toxic compounds than adults.

While your HVAC systems like an air conditioner or heat pump have air filters which prevent the circulation of dust and debris, but these cannot effectively eliminate smaller particles such as bacteria, viruses, and allergens. These systems are equipped with filters that are capable of removing only 3 to 5 percent of the particles passing through them. For this reason, you need a better system to effectively manage your indoor air quality.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your one-stop HVAC company in Shoreview MN that offers a wide range of effective air-cleaning products, including media cleaners.

What are Media Air Cleaners?

Media air cleaners function as a great first line of defense to improve your home’s indoor air quality. They are highly effective air filters, which trap tiny invisible air particles. These pollutants include dander, pollen, mold, and dust. Media air cleaners are installed on a return duct line and prevent particulates from entering your home.

A media air cleaner is a cabinet positioned in the return air duct of a forced air system. As air passes through your HVAC system, the media air cleaner catchesd airborne particles within the filter media before they reach your indoor air. The main HVAC difference between a media air cleaner and a standard air filter is the size. Regular air filters are an inch thick while media cleaners are 4 to 5 inches thick. This allows for more effective air filtration.
