Most of the regular air cleaners on the market have a filter that is very dense and placed in your air handler, which allows it to stop dust by collecting it in a porous filter. The reality of the situation is that the fewer the pores that are in the filter the more dust it can collect. The downside of less pores is that the filter not only collects dust but it also stops air from moving as well. The stoppage of the air flow causes the HVAC unit to be less efficient and ensuring that less of the air is cleaned. This process is called “pressure drop”.
The Trane CleanEffects™ Air Cleaner was created to reduce pressure drop and it has the lowest pressure drop and the highest efficiency possible. Particles like bacteria, smoke, and dust are often times 0.3 microns or less in size. At that small size, the allergens in the air can get migrate deep into your lungs, because your bodies nose and throat can’t filter particles that small. An air cleaner like the Trane CleanEffects™, will reduce the particles of potential asthma & allergy attack triggers in your house, like dander, dust, pet hair pollen, lint, mildew, smoke, bacteria, fungus and cooking grease.
In fact, the Trane CleanEffects™ Air Cleaner can catch airborne particles as small as .1 micron, which makes it more than eight times more effective than the very best HEPA room filters & up to 100 times better than a standard 1″ filter. The patented air cleaning technology can remove up to 99.98% of all airborne allergens that actually pass through the filter. These results were verified by professors at the prestigious Harvard School of Public Health.
