Houston Media Air Cleaners by Church Services Yes. Basic air cleaners can filter some of the dust, dander and pollen in your home, emphasis on “some.” But... media air cleaners can help filter a lot more, at a 95% efficiency level. Think of it this way: the sewer grate by your home is only good at keeping the bigger branches from being sucked down by the rain water. The same is true 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 when it comes to their stopping power. Media air cleaners, on the other hand, will get the job done. The active surface of the media air cleaner filter is much larger than the basic, coming in at 10 inches. Basic air filters must be replaced each month, while media air cleaners typically last up to half a year. Using the right air filter for indoor air quality keeps pollutants in check and maintains a healthy environment that helps develop better health as time goes on.
