If you’re looking for an indoor air quality product that’s super effective, efficient, and quiet, look no further than Trane CleanEffects™.
What’s the best air cleaner for my home?
Trane CleanEffects™ is by far the best air filter for your home. It’s an ingenious product that’s effective, efficient to operate all with a non-existent noise level.
The best air cleaner for your home provides not only air filtration but kills off dust, particulates, allergens, smoke, and viruses that are small enough to get through standard 1-inch and even 4-inch media filters that come with your heating and cooling system. These items that contaminate the inside of your home can really affect your comfort levels. New homes have even more potential to create these nuisances because they are sealed up much more than drafty homes of the past.
Trane CleanEffects™ and MERV Ratings
You may have heard about MERV ratings on filters you’ve bought in the past. MERV is defined as how many particles of varying sizes can get onto your filter before failing to meet minimum air filtration standards. So, what MERV rating does Trane CleanEffects™ have? MERV evaluates only one aspect of air cleaning. Particle capture. Trane takes it to the next level with an Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) certification. CleanEffects™ air cleaners are also recognized by Allergy Standards Limited (ASL) as the benchmark for air purification in your home. These standards measure air purification based on medical and scientific research in health issues and indoor air quality.
How Trane CleanEffects™ Works
How does Trane CleanEffects™ work? As air from your house enters your furnace or air handler, it is shot through your duct system and into each room through your vents on the ceiling or floor. But before that air is distributed, it passes through the CleanEffects™.
First, a pre-filter captures large particles, keeping the electrostatic field charger and collection cells cleaner, longer. After the pre-filter, the electrostatic field charger creates positive and negative charges. These help the particles adhere to the collection cells of the final filter. This process is patented and effectively removes 99.98% of particles from your home. The final phase of the indoor air cleaner is the reusable collection cells. The incoming particles from the field charger are captured by precisely engineered cells. This last filter can be cleaned with your vacuum cleaner once or twice a year to make them like new.
Clean Air Delivery Rate
The AAFA recognizes clean air delivery rate (CDR) as an accurate representation of an air cleaner’s performance because it measures how well the air is cleaned for the end-user.
Clean air delivery rate, which is the filter’s efficiency multiplied by the airflow rate, is recognized by the Federal Trade Commission and the Environmental Protection Agency as a fair and objective way to measure different types of air cleaners purchased by homeowners. The number tells us the cubic feet per minute of clean air delivered for a typical 1500 square foot home.
Have you seen those little single room air cleaner stands? They have a clean air delivery rate of 10. The standard 1-inch filter for your HVAC system is 12. Room HEPA filters have a delivery rate of 150. A 4- or 5-inch pleated media filter delivers at a rate of 240 cubic feet per minute (cfm). And while other whole-house electronic air cleaners have a rating of 660, Trane CleanEffects™ delivers an outstanding 1200 cfm.
How Effective is Trane CleanEffects™?
Trane’s CleanEffects™ removes up to 99.98% of allergens from your home by trapping particles as small as .1 micron in size. That’s 100 times more effective than a standard 1-inch filter. This means Trane CleanEffects™ can reduce how often you’ll need to dust your home in half. And it’s all been proven by experts at the Harvard School of Public Health.
A human hair is roughly 50—70 microns wide. Pollen and ragweed that cause allergies and breathing problems are around 17 to 50 microns. Most viruses like COVID-19 and flu are commonly around .3 microns. Trane CleanEffects™ captures particles as small as .1 micron and does it without restricting the air to your HVAC system. This makes it extremely effective at removing spores, pollen, dander, skin flakes, smoke, dirt, dust, bacteria, mold, spores, and even viruses from your home. It prevents them from entering your lungs and bloodstream through your nose, which makes it harder to breathe or cause you to get sick.
The ifD Corona Field
There’s also a powerful, patented ifD electrostatic corona field these particles enter after the pre-filter. It ruptures the fine layer of protein that encapsulates single-cell RNA and DNA, sterilizing them. That electronic field causes particles to adhere to the CleanEffects™ air cleaner’s collection cells without clogging the filter.
Trane CleanEffects™ filters are 100% quiet too. Many electronic air cleaners make an unpleasant buzzing noise, like a bug zapper. Your new CleanEffect’s patented technology makes it as quiet as it is effective.
Does CleanEffects™ Emit Ozone?
Ozone is a naturally occurring element in our atmosphere. When you’re just walking around town, background ozone levels are about two parts per million (PPM). CleanEffects™, when operating at full capacity, was shown to add only three PPM to the air. The emission standards set by the FDA for all appliances is 50 PPM. Trane’s output of ozone is way below the standard appliance, like toasters and space heaters.
Some people are very sensitive to ozone. Trane has designed their air cleaner to emit levels of ozone well below standards that are set even for medical devices. The power level of Trane CleanEffects™ can also be adjusted to further decrease ozone levels if needed.
Trane CleanEffects™ is by far the best air filter for your home. The best air cleaner for your home provides not only air filtration, but kills off dust, particulates, allergens, smoke, and viruses. If you’re looking for an indoor air quality product that super effective, efficient, and quiet, look no further than Trane CleanEffects™.
