  • Air Purifiers & Filters

    Improve indoor air quality by changing furnace air filters every 3 months and choosing ENERGY STAR® certified air purifiers.

Clearing the Air

The most efficient way to filter your home’s air is through the heating and air conditioning filtration system. The most common method is the inexpensive fiberglass filter, but it only traps enough large particulates to keep your HVAC system from clogging.

Honeywell’s Superior Allergen electrostatic filters use charged fibers to attract particles “magnetically” that otherwise would pass through.  This filter captures particles as small as 1 micron. In comparison, a human hair is approximately 100 microns in size.  These filters are effective against dust, lint, airborne dust mite debris, pollen, pet dander, mold spores, bacteria, microscopic allergens, virus carriers and most smoke.

Upgrade to an ENERGY STAR® qualified purifier

ENERGY STAR® qualified room air purifiers are 40% more energy-efficient than standard models, saving you about 225 kilowatt hour (kWh) usage per year and $25 annually on utility bills. These savings could add up to $215 over the life of the air purifier.
