Because Americans spend more than 90% of their daily lives indoors, the fact that indoor air can be up to 100 times as contaminated as outdoor air is a frightening fact. Air pollutants that contaminate the air in your home range from allergens and dust to asbestos, tobacco smoke, and volatile organic compounds from home construction and fumes from cleaning products and air fresheners. The effects of these pollutants on the health of you and your family is astounding. Some effects are chronic allergies and asthma. Others are serious health risks like cancer, and liver and kidney problems. All of these effects pose a greater threat to children.
One of the best ways to protect your family from these threats, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, is to install a whole-house air cleaner and change your air filters regularly. Most furnace filters have their effectiveness measured on a scale of 1 to 16 in units called MERVs. This MERV 15 Totaline furnace filter is one of the best filters you can buy in effectiveness. It is also a great deal for your money. Because it only has to be replaced once a year, it actually cost less in yearly replacements than less-effective low MERV rated filters.
The MERV 15 rating guarantees that, after the ten hours it takes to filter all the air in your home, there will be 95% less air pollutants as small as 0.3 microns in size. These air contaminants include allergens like mold, fungi, dust, pollen, pet dander, and dust mites; bacteria; asbestos; and insecticides. The MERV 15 Totaline Infinity Furnace filters also catch more of the smaller and most-harmful particles that other filters miss. These can include tobacco smoke, airborne viruses, odors, and volatile organic compounds.
