Yes. Basic air cleaners are able to 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. Picture it this way: the sewer grate by your home 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 good 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, can get the job done.
The active surface of the media air cleaner filter is bigger than the typical, coming in at 10 inches. Basic air filters have to 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 promotes a healthy environment that leads to better health further along.
