What is a Media Air Cleaner?
When it comes to improving indoor air quality and protecting equipment, media air cleaners are an HVAC systems’ first line of defense. Media air cleaners do an excellent job at cleaning air and are considered a high quality air filter. As indicated, they trap all sorts of tiny invisible air particles and pollutants in the air. These pollutants include a host of things like dust, dirt, mold, pet dander, pollen, smoke and other particles. They are installed on a return duct line on your home comfort system and prevent particulates from entering your home. Media air cleaners last much longer than the standard one-inch air filter, which isn’t nearly as effective.
How Do Media Air Cleaners Work?
A media air cleaner is a cabinet that is stationed in the return air duct of the forced air HVAC system. When air passes through the HVAC system, the media air cleaner traps and filters airborne particles inside the filter media before they get into your indoor atmosphere. The main difference between a media air cleaner and a standard air filter (as far as HVAC goes) is the size. Standard, or conventional, air filters are about one inch thick. Media cleaners, on the other hand, are 4 to 5 inches thick. This enables more efficient and superior air filtration.

What is Indoor Air Quality?
When you own a home, comfort shouldn’t be your only consideration for HVAC equipment. When it comes to Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning, Indoor Air Quality is a critical issue that is often neglected.
This is often the case because most homeowners feel that air pollution is strictly an outdoor problem. Nevertheless, studies indicate this is false. It turns out the air inside many workplaces and homes is far more polluted and toxic than the air outside. Because the average American spends more than 21 hours a day indoors on average, air quality deserves serious consideration and attention. Because the air indoors often lacks proper filtration, indoor air quality is something homeowners should take seriously.
The EPA defines Indoor Air Quality as the quality of air inside a building or home and how it relates to the building or home’s occupants. Indoor Air Quality has a direct and sometimes negative effect on our health in addition to our overall mood, well-being, and energy levels.
Why is Indoor Air Quality Important?
Health officials say the air we breathe in our homes can be 2 to 5 times more toxic and polluted than the air outdoors, where nature has a way of taking care of it through a host of processes unbeknownst to the average person. When you take into consideration how tightly insulated most homes and workplaces are intentionally made in order to keep treated air inside, it becomes obvious why HVAC experts and health officials suggest some homeowners consider certain indoor air quality products to go in conjunction with their heat pump, furnace or air conditioner.
All too often household air pollution is unable to escape because modern dwellings are fairly airtight. In the confined spaces of a house or office building or work environment, pollutants can get trapped without adequate filtration or the circulation of outdoor air. Even with the HVAC system’s air filter, often these pollutants are merely recirculated. Sometimes, getting a humidifier, dehumidifier or air purifier makes a world of difference, in addition to UV Lights and other air filtration products.
