Air Filters Can Help With Allergies, Asthma, And Provide Amazingly Clean Air
According to a study done by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air pollution can be 2-5x higher than outdoor levels. In some cases, indoor air pollution can be as much as 100x higher, can cause serious health risks and contributes to allergic reactions and asthma when inside your home.
How Do I Know Which Filter I Need
There are serval ways to measure indoor air quality. The two you will most likely see are MERV rating (minimum efficiency reporting value) and CADR (clean air delivery rate). MERV is designed for systems with media-based filters and measures ‘particle capture efficiency’ of larger particles 0.3 and 10 microns (µm). CADR measures particle capture efficiency of smaller particles down to 0.1 microns but it also measures at which rate clean air is actually delivered to your living space.
Trane CleanEffects air filter system is scientifically proven to reduce allergy and asthmas flare ups. It is also certified Asthma & Allergy Friendly by Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) and Allergy Standard Limits (ASL). While capturing 99.98% of airborne particles such as dust, pollen, animal hair and dander, viruses and even second hand smoke so you don’t have to breathe it in, Trane CleanEffects maintains efficient air flow throughout your home.
There are also mechanical air filtration systems available such as High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters.
