Yes. Basic air cleaners do 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. Think of it this way: the sewer grate in your street is only good for keeping the larger branches from being sucked down by the rain water. The same goes for smaller particles…you know, the ones that would be wonderful 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, are determined to 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 must be replaced each month, while media air cleaners typically last up to half a year.
Choosing the right air filter for indoor air quality keeps pollutants in check and keeps a healthy environment that leads to better health as time goes on.
