According to studies conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside the average home is up to five times more polluted than the air outside. For some people, this may mean no more than a runny nose or watery eyes. But, for others, particularly children, seniors and those who suffer from respiratory ailments, the effects may be devastating and long lasting.
Cleaning the air
Reducing the amount of pollutants in the air is the most effective way to improve indoor air quality. Filtration products capture contaminants that can't be removed through vacuuming and regular cleaning.
The Healthy Climate® Carbon Clean 16 Media Air Cleaner combines industry-leading MERV 16 filtration with activated, carbon-coated fibers to remove airborne dust, pollen, pet dander and other particles that can aggravate allergies and asthma. It's compatible with any heating and cooling equipment, and it clears the air throughout your entire home.
Another highly effective filter option for removing allergens is a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) system. Its performance is equivalent to a MERV 17 filtration efficiency or higher.
The PureAir™ air purification system and PureAir™ S air purification system filter out allergy-aggravating particles, while also removing odors and chemicals. They clean the air inside your home better than any other single system you can buy.
Clearing the air
Today's homes are built to be energy efficient. That means they're better sealed than ever against drafts and the elements. While this can have a positive impact on your household utility bills, it can have the unwanted side effect of trapping stale, contaminated air inside your home. Healthy Climate® Energy- and Heat-Recovery Ventilators (ERV/HRV) can improve the quality of your indoor air by bringing in a steady supply of fresher air from outside.
