Why should you consider the use of air quality systems? The EPA has identified indoor air pollution as one of the top five urgent environmental risks to public health.
Many people spend up to 90% of their time indoors. Exposure to indoor pollutants has increased because buildings are constructed with fewer windows and are more “airtight”, while the use of chemicals in household cleaners, construction materials, and pest control products has increased.
American Air represents the Healthy Climate line of products produced by Lennox, which include a plethora of air quality systems like humidifiers, air cleaners, air purifiers, and programmable thermostats. Healthy Climate products are one of the top line of products and carry a 5-year warranty to demonstrate the quality Lennox puts into all of their products.
The Lennox PUREAIR Air Purification System cleans the air in the home better than any other that can be purchased today, according to independent test results. (Extracted from the Asthma and Allergy Foundation press release. www.aafa.org).
The Lennox PureAir air purification system removes harmful particles from the air as well as odors and gases, (VOC’s). Annual replacement of disposable filter, UVA light bulbs and catalyst makes the PureAir easy to maintain.
Lennox Healthy Climate® Media Air Cleaners provide whole-home filtration for optimal home comfort and air quality, with no additional power source. The MERV 10 systems are up to 85% efficient in removing dust, dirt and mold spores down to 10 microns. For near perfect filtration performance, the MERV 16 systems remove a minimum of 95% of dust and other particles, including mold spores and other bioaerosls, from 0.3 micron and up. Both media air cleaning systems are available in a new 7″ SlimLine cabinet which allows for installation in even the tightest applications. Cartridges should be replaced annually.
|MERV = Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value|
The higher the MERV number the more efficient the filter.
