Air Clean Enough to Eat off of: Filters and More!

As the name suggests, an air cleaner, or air purifier, removes the impurities out of the air.  Their’s a unit for all kinds of situations, from a single room, to a whole house, and even to an entire industrial workspace.  They are typically used in situations where the air can become unhealthy due to smoke, pets, mold, or other pollutants, but are also common in work environments that involve hazardous materials.  Now finding the right style for your specific situation is another task.  Read on and then explore all of the options available at to get a complete picture.


Electric Air Cleaners
These air cleaners use a process called electrostatic attraction which begins with the air being drawn through an ionized section where particles get an electrical charge.  Next, the charged particles accumulate on a series of oppositely charged flat plates called a collector.  Then ion generators, or ionizers, disperse charged ions into the air, similar to electronic air cleaners but without a collector.  These ions attach to airborne particles, giving them a charge, making them attach to nearby surfaces or to one another and settle faster.


Honeywell TrueCLEAN Whole House Air Cleaners
While portable air cleaners can provide a certain level of effectiveness in individual rooms, the Honeywell TrueCLEAN system provides a superior clean for the entire home.  It is installed in your central heating and cooling system, so it cleans the air going through your ductwork and pushes the cleaner air out to all the rooms of your home.  As the air is moving through your heating and cooling system, Honeywell TrueCLEAN deactivates 99% of captured harmful particles like dust, pollen, smoke, mold spores, and other bacteria.  This system is dramatically more effective than single-room portable units, standard one-inch furnace filters, and practically all other whole-house air cleaning systems.
UV Air Treatment Systems
These air purification systems are different from the other options available.  They utilize the power of UV to eliminate up to 99.9% of mold spores, kill up to 87% of the most harmful airborne bacteria, and give you the best possible air quality.  These harmful particles can live in your ductwork, so clearing them out is the best way to consistently breathe clean, high quality air.  Also, by not having to get your system’s coils cleaned as often you save time and money using a UV system.
Honeywell Fresh Air Ventilation System
The Honeywell Fresh Air Ventilation System Works with your existing heating/cooling fan system to deliver outside air into your home.  These provide an easy to install, optimal whole-house ventilation at an affordable price.


Honeywell Balanced Ventilation System
This system utilizes a centrifugal blower that brings fresh air into the home from outdoors and exhausts the stale air in an equal amount.  Both the incoming and outgoing air streams pass through an exchange core where the energy from the exhaust air is efficiently transferred to the incoming air.  This means that in the winter fresh air coming into the house is warmer than the cold air outdoors, and in the summer the fresh air coming into the house is not as hot as the air outdoors.  Using the vents in the home, stale air is drawn into the system and exhausted outside.  After the heat and energy is exchanged, the fresh air brought in through the ventilator gets distributed in the house through the ducts of the heating or cooling system.


A Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) saves energy by transferring heat between the stale air exhausted to the outside and the fresh air that is brought inside.  This makes sure that when the ventilator is bringing in outside air, the heat stays inside the house in the winter or outside the house in the summer.  The Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) saves energy by transferring both heat and moisture.

Take a look at the link below at all of our options, the individual products each have specific details about their warranty and other specs. The installation time also varies depending on your exact situation ranging from quick and easy filter swaps to complicated and long retrofits.
