Quality Media Air Cleaners for Homes Across the Louisville Area

Pollution isn’t simply an outdoor problem – indoor air quality across your whole home is likely much worse than you expect! Poor ventilation, indoor activities, product use, and more contribute to a mounting concentration of contaminant particles, including pet dander, mold spores, dust pollen, and others! Louisville families spend a lot of time inside the home, where exposure to pollutants can lead to health and comfort issues. Achieve the best air quality when you use the right products with your forced air HVAC system to filter air and clean the air supply across the whole house.

Simply relying on your furnace filter for cleaner air isn’t enough. Portable air purifiers just don’t have the power to remove dust, pet dander, and other allergens across a large space. A whole home media air cleaner is one of the best, cost-effective systems for the price! This type of air cleaner will remove particles without running up the price of your utility bills or adding monthly maintenance tasks. Benefit from cleaner whole home air while your media air cleaner protects the furnace and air conditioning units, too!

Jarboe’s Heating, Cooling & Plumbing helps Louisville homeowners gain a cleaner home and better indoor air quality through the use of house media air systems. Increased filter efficiency eliminates finer particles and higher volumes. Learn about the product solutions that work with heating and cooling units to produce a healthier indoor environment for your family and find the model you want for the right price.

What Are Media Air Cleaners?

Various air cleaners and air purifiers are sold for use alongside a home’s heating and cooling HVAC units for better filtration and whole-house air quality improvement. The media air cleaner is a model that is a straightforward, effective product for the price. These air cleaners use air filters that usually have efficiency ratings of MERV 11 or higher. They do not produce electrically charged ions like an electronic air cleaner does, so there is no electricity use or ozone production. The service a media air cleaner provides is filter efficiency without airflow restrictions, which is a concern in house media air products that use a HEPA filter.

You know your furnace uses a furnace filter – you may wonder if home media air cleaning products replace it. The answer is no – a whole-house media air filter system is simply for use in addition to the filter that goes inside your furnace. The furnace filter and media air cleaner service different needs. The air filters that are inserted into a furnace or air handler remove particles for the benefit of the HVAC system, keeping electronic parts and sensitive components clean and clear of particulates that could hinder performance and system efficiency. A whole home media air cleaner is meant to remove particles from the home air supply for improved indoor air quality that benefits occupants in both health and comfort.

Besides the service they provide, what is different between air cleaners and filters for furnace units? The filter used in an air cleaner has a high-efficiency rating, usually MERV 11 or higher, whereas air filters for furnace systems range between MERV 1 and MERV 13. Filters used in a media air cleaner are typically several inches thick while a furnace filter is usually one or two inches thick. With better efficiency and more media, your house media air cleaning system doesn’t require filter replacement as often as you must change most furnace filters, which helps to cut the cost of components needed for the system.

Improve Indoor Air Quality with a Media Air Cleaner

Air conditioning and heating systems circulate the air volume of the whole house when heating and cooling. When a home media air product is installed with the HVAC system, all the air within the whole home cycles through that air filter as the HVAC equipment runs, removing particles such as:

  • Pet Dander
  • Mold Spores
  • Dust
  • Pollen
  • Dirt

A house media air system provides better filter coverage than electronic portable air cleaner units. Smaller portable electronic air purifiers are only capable of treating areas up to a specified size – they won’t remove particles from all the air throughout the whole home. Superior coverage and high MERV rating efficiency make a house media air model well worth the price to Louisville homeowners.

Your whole home air cleaner will remove airborne matter during heating and cooling cycles, and you can also use the system in the absence of heat or cooling. For this type of operation, simply switch the furnace fan on to allow air circulation even when no heating and cooling is generated. Make sure to shut off the fan, as leaving the unit running will increase electricity costs. Doing this now and then shouldn’t create a big price increase on your utility bills, yet your household still benefits from the removal of dust, pet dander, mold spores, and other troublesome allergens.

Why Install a Media Air Cleaner for Your Whole Home

Dust, pollen, pet dander, mold spores, and other particles stay in the home environment without adequate ventilation. As the HVAC system runs, the matter recirculates and moves about to other areas, but isn’t removed. Members of the household are constantly exposed to these allergens, which cause health symptoms you may confuse for a cold, such as:

  • Congestion
  • Itchy Eyes
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Coughing
  • Sneezing

When you use a home media air filtration model with your HVAC system, airborne particles are trapped and effectively removed from the home. They cannot recirculate and move about the whole house, which protects everyone indoors from bothersome side effects of exposure. A media air cleaner is especially beneficial in homes where allergy and asthma sufferers live and visit – filter media removes more particles that trigger allergy and asthma attacks, so these people are less likely to experience negative health symptoms.

In addition to their health benefits, Louisville homeowners love media air cleaners because they are low maintenance! Their filters only require replacement once or twice a year, depending on the model you use. Plus, they keep particles out of your comfort systems, so this equipment requires less maintenance, too!

They don’t cost a thing to run when you use a media air cleaner with your heating and cooling units, unlike electronic air purifiers. With electronic air purifiers, there is a concern about ozone exposure – ozone is a byproduct produced in small amounts by their operation. A media air cleaning system that isn’t electronic produces no ozone, so there is no risk to your loved ones.
