Did you know that the quality of air inside today’s homes is often worse than the air lingering outside? Viruses, bacteria, allergens, dust motes, gasses and other contaminants can circulate inside, creating breathing hazards and bad odors. And the most well-insulated homes, unfortunately, tend to trap odors, pollen and other contaminants within their airtight walls due to a lack of airflow most commonly found in older homes.

Indoor air pollution is among the five top environmental health risks, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, but installing a whole-home heating and cooling system is a good way to ensure better, fresher air. A Mitsubishi Electric whole-home zoned comfort system offers several air filtering solutions.

Multi-Stage Allergen Filtration:

These systems run air through a multi-stage allergen filtration system, which removes contaminants and odors before pumping the air back into the room. A blue-enzyme, anti-allergen filter reduces bacteria, germs and viruses. It also traps dust, pollens, mites and other particles that make life miserable for allergy sufferers.

Platinum Deodorizing Filter:

Available on select systems, platinum deodorizing filters use nanotechnology to absorb odors. A nanometer-sized deodorizing filter traps airborne odor-bearing particles. Once the particles are caught, a plasma electrode generates ozone to decompose them. These filters eradicate even the worst smells.

Easy to Clean Filters:

The filtration options from Mitsubishi Electric are sophisticated and easy to maintain. If cleaned regularly, the filters can last up to 10 years. Homeowners can now clean filters in a matter of minutes by simply opening the indoor unit’s filter access, removing the screens, washing the filters in the sink and allowing them to dry thoroughly before sliding them back in. This is not only cost-effective, but helps the environment by keeping filters from being frequently thrown away.

From dust and pollen to microscopic viruses, there are literally millions of small reasons that air filtration is the better way to healthier air.
