These days its hard to tell if a higher price is warranted or if you are being bamboozled. Let us break down the differences for you between that higher priced filter and a standard filter. You can then decide for yourself if you want to pay the difference and if it is worth it to you personally.
Whole home air purifying systems have become increasingly popular over the years. Florida is just one of those environments where something is always in bloom. If you, or one of your family members, deals with allergies it is one of the best proactive ways to get a jump on allergens. Unlike the standard box filter that you slap on your AC unit the newer whole house purifier models can catch allergens down to the size of .3 microns taking just about everything allergy causing out of the air before it recirculates.
Standard HVAC filters need to be changed every 3 months. Whole house purifiers can last up to 3 to 5 years when maintenance is done properly. These purifiers do not need for you to buy and invest in a whole new AC unit. They can install right into an older model as well. So they are not a major investment.
They are cost effective. They install right within the HVAC handler system you already own. So unlike the first units that were available, there are no stand up models taking up floor space for you to wipe down week after week.
The old portable units also used to occasionally make some rather odd noises. These new in unit models run on silent. You won’t know they are there except in that your allergies may feel lessened and your air will feel fresher.
So, to answer the question, there are definite advantages to the new whole-home air purifying systems versus the standard HVAC filter. They are a little more expensive up front. They do, however, save you money in the long run and for many, the benefits are more than worth it.
