Yes. Basic air cleaners do 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. Look at 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 is true for smaller particles…you know, the ones that would be great 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, will get the job done.
The active surface of the media air cleaner filter is bigger than the basic, 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.
Selecting the right air filter for indoor air quality keeps pollutants in check and keeps a healthy environment that contributes to better health down the road.
