Air Filtration Systems
An air filtration device is any device that uses a filter to capture particles in a systems air stream. There are many types of filter material. The effectiveness is measured by a formula called MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value). The higher the MERV, the better. They provide a cleaner and healthier home environment and extend the life of your air conditioning system.

Lennox Carbon Clean 16
This is the #1 rated MERV 16 media filter on the market. The media is a carbon coated fiber that removes up to 95% off allergy-aggravating particles as small as .3 microns. This is the same level used by hospitals for general surgery areas. The filter media needs to be replaced every 6-12 months.
Air Filtration and Purification Systems:
These devices perform as an air filter, but also purify the air in your home by using various processes.
Lennox Pure Air System
This system cleans the air in your home better than any other single system you can buy. It contain a MERV-16 media filter, 2 55-Watt UVA lamps and a metal insert that is activated by the UVA light. It is the only system to attack all three classes of contaminants in you home: small breathable particles, air-born mold, bacteria and viruses, and odor or chemical vapors. The media filter, UVA lamps, and metal insert need replacement every year.
This consists of a media filter and ionized metal insert, it captures up to 98% of particles down to one micron in the filter. The activated metal insert then kills the captured bacteria and spores that had been in your homes environment.
Air Treatment Systems:
These devices are attached to your home comfort system that treat or purify the air through varying processes.
Lennox Germicidal Lights
This is a device that provides UVC light near the coil within your duct system. The light damages the cell walls of contaminants like mold, bacteria, dander, dust mites, and viruses so they can no longer grow and multiply.
This is an award-winning system because it is an entirely new type of air purification system. The APCO system is installed directly in the ductwork of your central air system. As the air passes by the unit, it is scrubbed of germicides and odors. It does this without producing harmful ozone.
This system can improve indoor air quality by eliminating odor-causing and potentially toxic volatile organic compounds (VOC’s).
