How to Choose a Central Air Cleaner

Why do I need an air cleaner?

Some of the more common answers include:

  • You or someone in your family suffer from seasonal allergies.
  • You are concerned about airborne mold spores.
  • You have pets.
  • You are concerned about airborne virus or bacteria.
  • You want to protect the life and efficiency of your heating and cooling equipment.
What do you have to remove from the air to meet your needs?

Some air cleaners only remove very large visible particles to protect your home’s heating and cooling equipment. Others are effective on allergen-sized particles. Still others are effective all of the way down to virus-sized particles. The best home air cleaners take care of the issues you need addressed, whether it’s equipment protection, allergy relief or providing a healthy home.

How many rooms do I want to clean?

The best answer is, “Every room in my home.” There is no reason to consider portable air purifiers or ionizing room units when a central air cleaner is your best solution. Portables can be unsightly, noisy and require frequent maintenance. And it can be very costly to purchase one for every room in your home.

How will the product perform over time?

Installed central air cleaners will always perform better than portable units. However, many central air cleaners lose efficiency as they collect contaminants, starting the first day they are installed

How easy or difficult will it be to service and maintain?

Air cleaners vary in their maintenance frequency, some as often as once a month. Some require washing or vacuuming.

Air Cleaners / Air Filters

Media Filters

For the millions of particles in a typical home’s air, a Trane Perfect Fit™ filter traps more dust, pollen and bacteria than typical filters.

  • Up to 15x better than standard filters
  • Filters 100% of the heated and cooled air
  • For furnaces and air handlers

Standard Filters

Standard Filters were designed to correspond with all the standard sized fans. Filter shapes available are square / rectangle or round. Custom filters have case specific designs to fit your case exactly. Both these categories may be ordered in either black or white filtering mesh and the filter frame in any color or metallic finishes. As new trends emerge so this range will be adapted. What is considered custom today might become standard tomorrow. The filters above are what the standard range consist of currently.

Electronic Air Cleaners

Think your indoor air is safe? Think again. We spend 90% of our lives indoors, where, according to EPA reports, air quality is frequently more polluted than the air outdoors. A cubic foot of indoor air can have as many as 30 million pollutants that can trigger allergies, cause headaches, lung irritation, fatigue and more. In fact, the American College of Allergists states that 50% of illnesses are caused or aggravated by poor indoor air quality. Every person inhales over 3,500 gallons of air each day. Children inhale more particles for their size then adolescents or adults.

Heating and cooling equipment also suffers. So do your energy bills. A standard 1-inch furnace filter – even a high efficiency 1-inch filter – has one primary function; to keep large objects from damaging heating and cooling equipment. That means dust, dirt, pet dander, hair and other substances can build-up on your heating and cooling equipment and can reduce its efficiency by as much as 25%. The answer is a high-efficiency central home air cleaner. Central Air Cleaners are installed as part of your home’s central heating and cooling system – completely out-of-sight and silent.
