4 Best Home Air Filter Systems

December 23, 2014 | Blog

Your home’s air may not be something that you think about too much. Still, what you breathe matters. This will sound a bit peculiar, but what your HVAC system breathes matters as well. Dirt and dust is the primary cause of failure in HVAC systems. Thus, if your system is protected with proper filtration, it will not be a prone to failure.


Trane’s Clean Effects

This is truly the best in air filter technology. Electronic air cleaners can knock out 99.98% of indoor air particles. It can remove items up to 1/1000 the diameter of a human hair. Intense, right? Further, you never have to buy another filter. The only maintenance required on one of these is the occasional clean. With a vacuum, a swiffer and maybe a little water and you’re done for another six months to a year.

Media Filter

This is the next step down from an electronic air cleaner. It has no moving parts, and there’s nothing to break. You do, however, have to replace the 4.5″ filter every three to six months. The performance is far from that of an electronic cleaner, but it still removes significant air particles and requires less work than your standard 1″ filter.

Electrostatic Air Filter

These filters are pretty cool. If you can’t spring for a media filter or electronic air cleaner, then this is a great way to go. These filters are permanent and washable, and they remove more from the air than your standard junky 1” filter.

Standard 1″ Filter

This is your minimal effort option. It’s called “standard” because it’s the minimum filtration standard of the HVAC manufacturers. We don’t recommend them, but we know many people still use them. If you do go with a standard filter, replace it at least every month.
