Polarized Media Air Cleaners
It’s like an N95 Mask for your entire house.
According to the US EPA about 35% of indoor air pollution is made up of particulates. To minimize microorganisms like viruses, bacteria, mold and mildew in your home the US EPA and CDC recommend using a filter rated at MERV 13 or higher but before you buy a MERV 13 filter you need to make sure your HVAC system can handle it. Most passive air filters above MERV 8 have too much arrestance (airflow restriction) for typical heating and cooling systems. Too much air restriction can affect your home’s comfort, waste energy and shorten the life of, or even damage your HVAC system. To learn more about arrestance click here. (Maximum Arrestance)
Technology to the rescue. Our whole-house, high-efficiency, polarized media air cleaners filter the air in your home use technology to filter even the tiniest particles without causing undue stress on your HVAC system. These MERV 13+ rated air cleaners have the same arrestance as most MERV 8 filters.
Our electronic polarized-media technology provides maximum air cleaning capability with minimal air restriction. Active electronic, polarized-media air cleaners use a safe, 24-volt current to establish a polarized electric field on the surface of the filter media. As even tiny airborne particles pass through the field they stick to the media. The captured particles are removed from your air space and adhere to the media pad until it’s time to replace the pad.
The air cleaner’s efficiency increases as it loads, providing exceptionally high efficiency with air resistance much lower than normal passive filters. Our Polarized Air filters capture the smallest sub-micron particles, airborne pathogens and VOC’s. They are so efficient they capture 97% of particles at 0.3 microns and continue trapping particles even smaller in size, down to 0.1 microns. And electronic polarized-media technology is non-ionizing which means it is safe to operate and easy to maintain.
These Air Cleaners install into existing 1” filter grill or track, without costly ductwork modifications, turning your home’s central heating and cooling system into a whole-house air cleaning system.
