Nearly half of all homes in the United States have at least one person who struggles with allergies. You know all about the symptoms and side effects that can include a running nose and itchy eyes. Find out how you can reduce allergy symptoms and live comfortably in Vero Beach, FL, with a Trane CleanEffects™ air cleaner.
How Does the CleanEffects™ Air Cleaner Work?
The Trane CleanEffects™ air cleaner is an air purifier and cleaner designed to keep your whole home safe and reduce both allergens and pollutants. It uses multiple types of filters to remove the smallest particles that you see around your home. Not only does the air cleaner work on cigarettes and other types of smoke, but it also removes pet dander and dust, which are two of the more common allergens found in Florida.
This unit works with both your furnace and air conditioner as well as your ducts. After moving through the ducts, the particles pass through the cleaner and hit the pre-filter. This filter captures most of the larger particles before sending them through to the next stage.
The next stage is an electrostatic field charger that creates both negative and positive charges in those particles. This helps the third and final filter collects many of the smaller particles to reduce the allergens in your home by as much as 99.9%. All of the filters work together in the process.
Air Cleaner Effectiveness
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America certified the cleaner after looking at scientific research that proved it was a good option for homes with people who suffer from allergies and asthma. A study done by the Harvard School of Public Health found that it meets the claims that it removes particles from the air.
This air cleaner works on particles that smaller units cannot catch because its filters can collect objects that are only 0.1 microns in size. Pet hair is often 50 microns or larger, while pollen particles start at 15 to 20 microns.
Every time that you step outside and travel around Vero Beach, you expose your body to ozone. While some have no problems with ozone, others are more sensitive to it and can experience headaches and other symptoms. The Trane CleanEffects™ air cleaner doesn’t produce nearly as much ozone as similar systems do.
The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) limits the amount of ozone that household items can produce to 50 parts per million (PPM), including your air conditioner and microwave. Medical devices can produce some ozone as they run, but Trane designed this system to emit fewer ozone emissions. Its output is far below the minimum standard.
Air Cleaner Benefits
One benefit of owning this air cleaner is that it’s easy to clean. You can use a vacuum to remove some of the particles stuck to the final filter or use some cool water to clean it. Some AC maintenance plans even include cleaning the filter on this system.
Thanks to the clear indicator lights on the case, you can easily see when you need to check the filter or when there are other problems. It comes with an insulated case that cuts down on the noises you hear and keeps the system safe. Depending on how often you use the air cleaner and the particles in your home, you may only need to clean it once every nine months, though some clean their filters every three months.
Capable of trapping and removing up to 99.98% of allergens in the home, this air cleaner works on particles that spread germs and bacteria around your family. Not only did Trane design it to work on the substances that enter through your nose, but you also get protection from the particles that can reach your bloodstream.
