Indoor Air Quality
Air Quality: Here’s What You’re Breathing.
The average person breathes 3,400 gallons of air each day. Unfortunately, air isn’t all you’re inhaling. Mold spores, pollen, bacteria, dust and other particles exist in virtually all indoor air.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside a home can be 2-5 times more polluted than air outside.
When installed into your home’s central heating and cooling system, a Honeywell Whole-House Air Cleaner traps and filters airborne particles and contaminants passing through the duct system to make sure that cleaner air is distributed to all rooms in your home. A whole-house air cleaner can also help to maintain the performance of your furnace and air conditioner by keeping it clean.
Upgrade Your 1" Furnace Filter.
Most homes are outfitted with basic HVAC filtration - a standard one-inch furnace filter that meets minimum filtration standards and requires frequent replacement. Think of a furnace filter as a net that captures particles that flow through it in the air stream. The bigger and better the net, the more and smaller particles that can be captured.
Honeywell Media and Electronic Air Cleaners are easy-to-use, whole-house filtration solutions that trap up to 60 times more airborne particles than a standard one-inch filter. Replaceable four-inch Media Air Filters can last up to 12 months, and Electronic Air Cleaners require little maintenance with only periodic washing.
Over time, the purchase of a Honeywell Media or Electronic Honeywell Air Cleaner can pay for itself compared to the monthly purchase of a one-inch filter. Plus, you’re sure to notice a difference in the quality of air in your home, since whole-house filters can capture up to 98% of airborne pollutants and particles from the air passing through the duct system.
Clean the Air in Your Entire Home
Electronic Air Cleaner
The Honeywell Electronic Air Cleaner is an advanced and easy-to-use, whole-house solution that traps and filters up to 98% of pollutants from the air passing through your heating and cooling system. This advanced air cleaner captures microscopic impurities like dust, smoke and smog particles in addition to larger particles like mold spores and cat dander.
It works by placing an electric charge on airborne particles, and then collecting the charged pollutants like a magnet. Plus, you can say goodbye to monthly filter replacements by simply washing the air cleaner cells in your dishwasher or sink.
- Meets American Lung Association® Health House® guidelines.
- Advanced, easy-to-use technology. Three-stage filtration includes exclusive electrostatic postfilter that improves filtration with minimal resistance to airflow.
- Easy maintenance. Optional Air Watch™ system reminds you to wash the filter cells.
- 5-year warranty.
UV Light Filtration
Honeywell's Ultraviolet (UV) Air Treatment Systems zap mold spores and certain live, airborne bacteria passing by the lamp to prevent them from being re-circulated into your home's air. The shortwave lights, similar to those used in hospitals, laboratories and commercial kitchens, are easy to add to your existing heating and cooling system. Plus, the long-life lamps are easy to replace when needed.
The Honeywell UV Air Treatment System can kill up to 87% of certain airborne bacteria* in the air passing through your heating/cooling system, reducing the presence of these harmful agents in the air your family breathes.
*Test performed shows a single-pass kill rate of serratia marcescens bacteria in a clean metal 12"x25" duct at an airflow of 2000 cfm using new lamps.
- Meets American Lung Association® Health House® guidelines.\ Designed for safety. Sealed unit design prevents contact with voltage and UV rays.
- Exclusive SmartLamp™ technology. Extends lamp efficiency for up to five years.
- Built-in diagnostics. LED light indicates when lamp replacement is needed.
- 5-year warranty.
Whole House Ventilation
Weather-tight homes can trap damp, stale air inside. One indication of poor air circulation may be moisture on the inside of your windows. An option for fresh air is to open the windows, but often that is not a realistic choice. It may be winter time or a hot summer day, and you don't want to let conditioned air flow out the window. The answer is a Honeywell Ventilation System that brings fresh air into the home. A Honeywell Whole-House Ventilation System exchanges outside air with inside air so the heating or cooling of conditioned air is not lost. It recovers up to 80% of the heating/cooling energy from the air leaving your home.
