Whole House Air Cleaners and Air Filters
Whole house air filtration units are installed between a furnace and the return air duct and are installed so they can capture airborne particles such as pollen, dust, spores, dander, bacteria and many other harmful particulates. Some air cleaners are non-electric media and others have a combined media and electric air filtration capability, the later being the best whole house air filter. Performance of these air filters is measured in terms of how efficient they are at trapping micron-sized particles. For example, a human hair is roughly a 100 microns in diameter. So the higher the micron rating, the better the air filter is at removing contaminants from the air and may reduce the incidence of allergies, sneezing, itchy eyes and even illness.
