Are you concerned about your indoor air quality? Do you or a loved one suffer from indoor allergies? Today’s construction is so effective in creating air tight spaces that the air inside our homes is constantly recirculated. That includes airborne particles such as bacteria, cleaners, pet dander and dust, all circulated multiple times a day. This can result in health problems, including allergies and asthma. Wyckoff Heating & Cooling may have just the solution you’re looking for.

This winter, we are pleased to introduce a new line of reusable filters that achieve 97 percent efficiency and quality air quality like we haven’t seen before – the SolaceAir polarized-media filter.

How it Works
The SolaceAir whole house polarized-media electronic air cleaner installs directly into the filter rack of your existing HVAC system for ease in installation. Unlike mechanical filters where the size of small holes in the material determines the particles filtered from your home’s air, the polarized-media filter combines a safe, magnetic field to attract particles like a magnet collecting paper clips. As the particles get larger during subsequent passes, they collect on the air cleaner’s disposable replacement media pads. In a short period of time, even the smallest particles are removed from the air.Solaceair2

The polarized-media filter removes microorganisms that enter and recirculate in our homes every day. This ground-breaking technology is a great way to simply and effectively improve your home’s air quality today.

Benefits

  • The polarized-media filter is 97 percent efficient.
  • Installation is a breeze with no ductwork modifications required.
  • The filter’s carbon center screen removes odors and contaminants.
  • Power consumption is low, equalling that of a 40-watt light bulb.
  • Improved health and indoor air quality.

Maintenance
Routine filter maintenance is required, but less often in comparison to traditional air filters. The exterior of the filter is reusable, and the media pad should be updated every three to four months depending on household and lifestyle.

Cost
The average polarized-media filter cost is $600. Though more expensive than traditional filters, the benefits for those who are concerned about health and indoor air quality often find the upside far outweighs the initial upfront cost.
