HEPA Medical Grade Media Filtering System
The HEPA Media Filtering System provides a filtering efficiency of up to 25% for visible and invisible airborne particles including pollen, spores, most bacteria varieties, even most insecticide dust.
Electronic Air Cleaner
Electronic air cleaners, sometimes referred to as ionizers or electronic air purifiers, use electrically charged filters to reduce the number of airborne contaminants in your home. As air passes through your heating and cooling system, the electronic air cleaner traps large particles (such as dust and dander) in a prefilter. Then, electrically charged filters attract and trap smaller particles (such as bacteria and mold) to prevent them from recirculating through your home.
Steam and Bypass Humidifiers
A whole home humidifier moisturizes the air, and the fan inside the furnace or air handler disperses the moisturized air throughout the home. Whether it is steam or bypass(water), Whole home humidifiers are a much better choice than portable humidifiers, they're easier to operate and maintain, more energy efficient and one humidifier does the work of several portable units.

Do I need a whole-home humidifier?
If you do not have a humidifier it is time to get one. Aside from reducing the health concerns, humidifiers will save you money on your heating. By adding humidity to the air the heat is absorbed in the water molecules which helps maintain the heat for a longer period of time which in turn requires your heater to turn on less, saving you money! From a health perspective, air that has less than 50% humidity enables particulates in your home to become airborne. Particulates such as dust, dander, and mold spores. If you have allergies, a humidifier is a key to reducing them.
Humidifiers help balance the air quality inside your home
Humidifiers add humidity to the air during the winter months. Some units mist water into the air moving through the system while other systems create steam which is then injected into your home's airflow. Most people are unaware but your home humidity is less than that of the Sahara desert if you have a forced-air heating system. Issues from too low of a humidity level are allergies, excessive dust, and dust mites, and shrinking of wood flooring as well as cracks appearing in plaster or drywall. Humidifiers are one of the few products that should be mandatory on a forced-air heating system which is why Family Heating and Air Conditioning installs them on every installation.
