Filters

Take a closer look at what’s in your air. And the ideal way to get it out.

You may be surprised at what’s polluting the air inside your home. Passing through windows and doors, and building up from places inside your home, tiny particles like dust, pollen and pet dander easily find their way into your air and your lungs. And, when they do, they can trigger allergies and cause respiratory problems.

Healthy Climate® filters and air cleaners

Healthy Climate® air cleaners are rated all up to MERV 16—the highest filtration efficiency—for the utmost in particle control. The CarbonClean16 has been rated by a leading consumer magazine as the #1 professionally installed, whole-home filtration system available. Unlike many other filtration systems, Healthy Climate systems maintain their efficiency over the life of the filter.

HEPA filtration systems

Another highly effective option for removing contaminants and allergens in your home’s air is a Healthy Climate high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) system. It removes 99.97% of airborne particles down to 0.3 micron, using hospital-grade filtration technology. That means it allows no more than three particles out of 10,000 to pass through the filtration media. This performance is equivalent to a MERV 17 filtration efficiency or higher; MERV values as specified by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) only go up to 16.
