Yes. Basic air cleaners can filter some of the dust, dander and pollen in your home, emphasis on “some.” But... media air cleaners filter much more, at a 95% efficiency level. Look at it this way: the sewer grate down at the corner is only good for keeping the really big branches from being sucked down by the rain water. The same is true for smaller particles…you know, the ones that would be great to prevent from flowing through your HVAC system to the entire house: allergens, chemicals, some odors, etc. Basic 1” air filters might as well be the size of a sewer grate in terms of their stopping power. Media air cleaners, on the other hand, can get the job done.
The active surface of the media air cleaner filter is greater in size than the regular, coming in at 10 inches. Basic air filters need to be replaced each month, while media air cleaners typically last up to half a year.
Selecting the right air filter for indoor air quality keeps pollutants in check and keeps a healthy environment that helps develop better health down the road.
