Air quality is very important in maintaining a healthy home. A common misconception is that the traditional 1” wide filter beside your furnace is for providing better quality air, when in fact that filter’s sole role is only to protect the furnace’s fan from items which could damage the fan blades, essentially 2 x 4s and small animals. When a high quality filter is used in that 1” space, the airflow through the furnace is drastically reduced, causing the furnace operating temperature to increase beyond the limits of the furnace’s design; at best this will cause rapid degradation of the furnace, and at worst will cause the furnace to shut down due to overheating; the latter being more common the colder the outdoor temperature is, when you need the furnace the most.
Jamison Furnace offers a wide array of air quality solutions which will increase your home’s healthiness without damaging your furnace:
High-Efficiency Media Air Cleaner – Extra wide to permit adequate air flow
The AMB11 High-Efficiency Media Air Filter helps protect and prolong the operating efficiency of central heating and cooling systems compared to systems that do not use enhanced air filtration components. The filter can remove household dust, coal dust, insecticide, dust mites, pollen, mold spores, fungi, bacteria, pet dander, cooking smoke and grease, and tobacco smoke particles, down to 0.3 microns in size.
Electronic Air Cleaner – Essentially a “bug zapper” for dust
With a four-stage air cleaning process, pre-filters, charging section, grounding plates, and carbon filters, the AE14 Electronic Air Cleaner can efficiently remove atmospheric and household dust, coal dust, insecticides, dust mites, pollen, mold spores, fungi, bacteria, cooking smoke and grease, pet dander and tobacco smoke particles, down to 0.01 microns in size.
Ultra-Violet – Anti-bacterial/anti-fungal sterilization
The UVX Ultraviolet Air Purifiers break down bacteria, viruses, mold and VOCs, and are ideal for offices, lounges, smoking rooms, daycare centers, residential homes. Units also feature the ultra-bright LED “Smart Lamp System” visual operating display.
Whole-House HEPA Air Cleaner – The most effective air sterilizer type available
The AMHP-250-UPD Whole-House Air Sterilizer uses a HEPA filter, UVC germicidal lights (non-ozone producing) and CinQuartz® Photo-Catalytic Oxidation (PCO) to filter and sterilize the air. This unit removes and destroys allergens and atmospheric dust, as well as biological and chemical contaminants and odors. This air sterilizer is most effective when paired with the extra-wide media air filter above.
