Is a More Expensive HVAC Filter Better?

Whole House HVAC Air Purifiers

Whole-house air cleaners are becoming an increasingly popular component of the heating and cooling systems in many homes. Wondering why? Check out the benefits below!

Fewer allergy symptoms.

Unlike standard disposable air filters, whole-house air purifiers can catch potential allergens down to .3 microns in size, removing up to 99.97 percent of particles from the filtered conditioned air.

Compact size.

Whole-house air purifiers are conveniently installed within the HVAC air handler system, eliminating the unsightly portable units in different rooms throughout the house.


Whole-house air cleaners save you the expense of having to purchase both air purifier filters and HVAC filters.

Less Noise.

Because whole house air purifiers eliminate the noise associated with some portable units, they are able to create a more comfortable and healthier indoor environment with little noise.

Low Maintenance.

While standard HVAC filters last about 90 days, whole-house air purifiers last 3 to 5 years with little to no maintenance. And these units can be a part of your your existing HVAC system.

Keeping your eyes and ears open for warning signs can prevent that scenario where the system quitsCarrier air purifier in the middle of night or for businesses, during work hours on the coldest day of the year,” said president of EMCO Tech Heating and Cooling, a leading HVAC company serving residential and commercial customers in Philadelphia area. “Simple maintenance during the year will prevent this problem and keep your home or business warm during the cold winter weather and hot summer days.

There are several types of air purifiers and filtration devices available:

  1. HEPA filters: These filters are highly effective in catching particles such as dust, pollen, and pet dander.
  2. Activated carbon filters: These filters are effective in getting out odors, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and chemicals from the air.
  3. Ultraviolet (UV) air cleaners: These devices use UV-C light to kill microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses in the air.
  4. Ionic air purifiers: These devices use electrically charged ions to attract and trap particles in the air.
  5. Ozone generators: These devices produce ozone, which is a molecule that reacts with and neutralizes pollutants in the air.

When picking an air filtration device, it’s important to consider your specific needs and the size of the room or space you need to purify. There are some devices for smaller rooms, and more complex filters for bigger areas. It’s also important to consider the ongoing maintenance costs of the device, such as replacement filters or regular cleaning of the device.
