The quality of the air we breathe in our North Carolina homes and offices can affect health and productivity. Although keeping indoor air clean is always important, it has become even more important with the onset of the novel coronavirus, which spreads through airborne particulates. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends increasing ventilation, removing sources of pollution and increasing filtration to keep indoor air clean. Using a whole-home air purifier or air cleaner and high-efficiency filtration components on commercial heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems can improve indoor air quality.
HVAC Filtration and Indoor Air Quality
Standard HVAC filters capture large particulates to keep components of the system clean. Better filtration captures smaller particulates, including pollen, bacteria, pathogens, volatile organic compounds and other pollutants. Air purifier effectiveness is evaluated in relation to high-efficiency filters, such as HEPA and MERV, that capture particulates sized .3 micron and smaller. However, some high-efficiency filters limit airflow, which affects performance of HVAC systems. A qualified HVAC contractor can evaluate your indoor air quality requirements and recommend equipment that works with your unit.
Trane CleanEffects Air Cleaner
Trane’s air purifiers attach to HVAC systems and remove airborne pollutants, keeping indoor air clean. The Trane CleanEffects Air Cleaner catches airborne particulates as small as .1 micron, an efficiency greater than HEPA room filters.
This whole-home system is installed in ductwork, cleaning air before it reaches your living space. It allows strong airflow with a high clean air delivery rate while capturing 99.98% of particulates down to .3 micron.
