Improved Air Quality

The quality of your indoor air can be improved significantly by adding an air filter to your heating and cooling system.

Air Pollutants

Chart: Size Comparison of Pollutants in Microns*

*This chart is intended to provide information on particle size only, not air cleaner performance.

99% of the particles in the air are not visible to the naked eye. These are the particles that are most dangerous to your health:

  • Aggravating allergies and asthma
  • Contributing to colds and flu

A standard one-inch filter captures less than 5% of the particles in the air. This leaves the other 95% to:

  • Pollute indoor air
  • Contaminate duct work
  • Reduce the efficiency of your heating/cooling equipment
