Today’s homes are better insulated and more energy efficient than ever. But that efficiency comes with a price: the air inside your home can trap pollutants and dust, and can be worse than outdoor air. Irritants like dust, pollen, tobacco smoke, pet dander, and VOCs recirculate within the home and can make life very unpleasant, even if you don’t have allergies or asthma.

  • Talk to your friendly Dr HVAC representative will review the options with you and help you get the right solution for your home.

Air Cleaners

While a standard filters for your furnace or air conditioner might help protect your equipment from dust, these don’t do much for the quality of air you breathe. An air cleaner (which can contain one or more filters) is designed to remove more particles and gasses than a standard filter can.

GeneralAire AC22 And AC24 Cleaners

Most people use standard 1″ filters that you can buy at any hardware store. But they do not trap as many particles as the AC 22 and 24 can. A standard filter has about 5 square feet of filter surface, but the AC 22 and 24 have 71 and 72 square feet respectively. That means more particles get trapped, your air is cleaner, and you don’t need to change your filter as often.

Features and benefits:

  • 97% efficient by weight of airborne particles as small as 0.01 microns.
  • MERV 11 microfibre filter removes tobacco smoke, pet dander, dust and pollen.
  • Power consumption: 134 W.
  • Maintenance: change filters every 6 – 12 months.
  • Warranty: 10 years.

AC500 HEPA

If you need extra relief from allergens and gasses, combine an AC 22 or AC 24 with the extra cleaning power of the AC 500.

HEPA stands for “high efficiency particle arrestor”. HEPA filters trap even the smallest particles in their fibres, and get the ones other filters miss. The AC 500 combines a HEPA filter with an activated charcoal filter that removes odours and gasses like VOCs from the home.

Features and benefits:

  • 99.97% efficient at removing particles 0.30 microns from the air.
  • Eliminates annoying and dangerous odours, like tobacco smoke, cooking odours, pet odours and more.
  • Power consumption: 134 W.
  • Maitenance: change filters and bulbs every 6 – 12 months.
  • Warranty: 5 years.
