Odd size air filter? We hand make every air filter frame to your exact size. You'll always have a filter that fits perfectly!

Replaceable Air Filter Media Assures A New, Clean Air Filter Every Time. No More Guessing if Your Filter is Really Clean & Healthy.

New Patented Air Sponge Filters "Form-Fit Seal" Stops Bypass and Provide 100% Air Filtration
It’s common sense that air will take the path of least resistance. That’s why we make our filters custom, to your specifications. But we don’t stop there. Air filter tracks have imperfections, design flaws and metal to metal seals that allow severe bypass. To compensate for these flaws our filters feature our patented anti-bypass seal. When your air conditioner or heater turns on the difference in pressures causes an air tight seal. No bypass means your filtering 100 % of the air.

Your Choice

You'll choose what type of replaceable air filter media goes inside your frame. Select the media that suits your needs best. You can always switch to a different type when you use them up.

Ultra Violet Germicidal Light Fixtures.

uvlight

70% Air Treatment Single Pass Kill Rate Recommended Application: Up to 1,600 CFM

Honeywell Air Treatment Systems produce UV-C energy, emitting short-wave ultraviolet light that’s proven to be a highly-effective germicide. The technology is widely used in hospitals, pharmacies, and kitchens to kill airborne and surface microorganisms like mold and bacteria. Now homeowners can benefit from UV products, too.
Honeywell lamps are ozone free. They come with a five-year limited warranty.
And lamp replacement is a snap. For your cooling system.

Features

UV-C light kills airborne and surface bacteria.

Continuously emits ultraviolet energy. UV lamp does not produce ozone.

Sealed unit design prevents accidental installer and homeowner contact with the voltage and with the ultraviolet rays.

Safe design prevents lamps from lighting unless the base is correctly mounted on the HVAC duct.

Light pipe to safely view the lamp operation.

Power cord that plugs into 120 Vac electrical outlet.

Quick and easy lamp replacement & Easy lamp maintenance.

AIRWATCH™ Indicator can be installed to remind customers when to change the lamp. To capture and minimize microorganism pass-through in residential heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, combine the Ultraviolet Air Treatment System with a high-efficiency air filtration system that includes an electronic air cleaner.

Benefits

Kill most germs before they re-circulate

Return-air duct models. Mounted in the ductwork of your heating and cooling system, the Ultraviolet Air Treatment System continuously emits ultraviolet (UV) energy that kills a high percentage of airborne bacteria passing by the light. Honeywell uses special UV lights that don't produce ozone, unlike most UV products.

Prevent mold spores from growing on your system's cooling coils

Coil irradiation model. Mounted above your central air conditioner's cooling coil, the Ultraviolet light continuously bathes cooling system components with mold stopping UV energy.

Specially designed for maximum performance and safety!

UV Air Treatment products by Honeywell feature a unique design with a patent pending lamp drive system for maximum performance, a special safety design that won't let bulb light unless properly mounted to the duct, and a special light pipe to safely view the bulb operation.

*Test by independent lab was conducted on one sample. Bacteria were injected into a test duct and surviving bacteria were counted.
1Test performed in a test duct showed a 3-log(99.9%) reduction in colony-forming Aspergillus Niger mold spores when surface was irradiated at a distance of 18 inches for 3 hours in still air, using new bulbs.
2Test performed showed an 87% single pass kill rate of Serratia Marescens bacteria in a clean metal 12 inches x 25 inches duct at an airflow rate of 2000 cfm using new bulbs.
3Test performed showed a 70% single pass kill rate of Serratia Marcescens bacteria in a clean metal 12 inches x 25 inches duct at an airflow rate of 2000 cfm using new bulbs.

THE IMPORTANCE OF WHOLE-HOUSE HUMIDIFICATION SYSTEMS.

Four words can summarize why whole-house humidifiers are important to homeowners- WELL-BEING, SAVINGS, NEED and DEMAND.

Consumer need for Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) solutions has grown dramatically in the past decade, as homes are built more tightly and people become more aware of health-related issues. While air cleaners and ventilation keep indoor air clean, proper humidification is needed to control, minimize and eliminate unhealthy airborne pollutants. The ASHRAE standard range for optimum indoor relative humidity is between 40-60% year round, and 35-55% during the heating season. Controlling indoor relative humidity is important because having too much or too little humidity in the home can pose risks to the well-being of individuals in the home, and potentially cause costly damages to the home itself. Today’s whole-house humidifiers and humidity controls work to maintain RH levels within these ranges.

The Benefits of Having a Whole-House Humidifier:

  • 1 WELL-BEING The right humidity level increases overall comfort. Dry air in the home can foster the growth of bacteria and viruses, and lead to dry, flaky skin. The American Lung Association recommends 40 to 55% indoor relative humidity to achieve a maximum comfort level.
  • 2 LOWER HEATING BILLS Humidifiers can help lower heating bills because properly humidified air feels warmer than over-dry air. For example, a 69°F or 20°C temperature at 35% relative humidity feels as warm as a 72°F or 22°C setting at 19% relative humidity. Setting a thermostat back three degrees can reduce annual heating bills as much as 5%.
  • 3 ASSET PROTECTION Good humidification also preserves woodwork and artwork throughout a home and prevents wood from cracking. It also helps musical instruments stay in tune.
  • 4 FEWER“SHOCKS” Static electricity can “shock” homeowners and their electrical equipment with a static charge of up to 20,000 volts, a problem that can be reduced with proper humidification.

Types of Humidification Systems:

BYPASS FLOW-THROUGH UNITS provide the most flexible installation options and can be installed on either the supply plenum or the return duct, based on what makes most sense in the particular application. A bypass duct then connects the unit to the duct opposite of the unit installation. Air is sucked from the supply, through the humidifier’s soaked clay media pad, and blown into the return for recirculation through the furnace and out into the living areas.

POWERED FLOW-THROUGH UNITS work best for homeowners with variable speed, multi-stage furnaces. These furnaces reduce airflow during extended run times when only the first stage of heating is operating. Powered flow-through units include an internal fan, do not require a bypass duct, and can be installed in small, narrow areas of the supply duct.

STEAM HUMIDIFICATION is another good option and provides a constant humidity level. Operating independently of the furnace, this type of humidifier has a heating element that boils water in the unit’s reservoir when the humidistat indicates the need for humidity, and is mounted under a supply or return air duct.

Maintaining the Right Humidity Level:

To maintain proper humidity, and help prevent condensation and mold, the humidistat must adjust or be adjusted as outside temperature changes. Whole-house humidifiers can be controlled in three different ways:

STANDARD MECHANICAL CONTROL- Standard controls require manual adjustments daily and put complete responsibility on the homeowner. While easy to operate, it is the least effective way to maintain proper humidity levels.

HUMIDITY CONTROL- The control is mounted separately from the thermostat and automatically adjusts to achieve the right humidity level. Most humidity control systems are connected to an outdoor sensor through a hole in the wall

INTEGRATED CONTROL WITH THERMOSTAT- This control is combined with the thermostat to provide consistent humidity levels. This option also provides one common location for thermostat and humidity level control for the entire home.
The logic behind whole-house humidifiers with integrated controls is simple: the cooler it gets outside, the more the furnace runs. Replacing the wiring from the outdoor sensor to the furnace sensor accomplishes the same result. These integrated systems calculate optimum humidity without the risk of condensation or the inconvenience of an outside sensor.
