Media Filters

Basic Furnace Filters come standard with most HVAC systems. These filters only protect the furnace from bulk dust that can clog equipment; they do little to remove smaller particles from the air.

High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) Filters use deeply folded media to trap a minimum of 99.97% of 0.03 micron particles passing through the filter. HEPA filters come in portable, bypass ducted and stand-along configurations. Beware of manufacturers who use terms like “HEPA-style” or “HEPA-like” filters. They may only achieve close to HEPA efficiences by circulating air through the filter numerous times.

Electronically Charged Media

Electronic Air Cleaners electrically charge and collect airborne particles on a collection grid. The Honeywell EAC captures up to 100% of airborne particles passing through the product. The design of the collection grid section offers the most surface area available for collecting these charged particles.

The particles removed by the electronic air cleaner tend to be very small—less than ten microns. Consider that the dot in the letter ‘i’ in the word micron is about 400 microns. So generally, particles smaller than ten microns can be seen only with a microscope, except in very large concentrations, such as a puff of smoke. Your electronic air cleaner can remove even smaller particles that can be seen only with an electron microscope.

Digital Non-Programmable Thermostats

Honeywells’s digital thermostat offers the perfect blend of features, performance, energy savings and value. With the largest backlit screen in its class and an easy-to-read digital display, they prominelntly display both room and set temperature.

Plus, Red-LINK wireless models are available which allow you to re-locate a theromostat, upgrade equipment, add zoning and more – quickly and easily – without wires.

Programmable Digital Thermostats

With Honeywell’s progrdammable thermostats, you’ll enjoy energy savings by setting the simple programming periods to fit your lifestyle.

Or use the Adaptive Intelligent Recovery which eliminates guesswork by allowing the thermostat to “learn” how long your furnace and air conditioner take to reach the temperature you want. Just set your program schedule to the time you want the house to reach your desired temperature. The thermostat then turns on the heating or cooling at just the right time to reach your scheduled temperature at your scheduled time.

Whole-House Dehumidification

Most homeowners understand that excess moisture in the air can make them feel hot and sticky, but they don’t know that options exist beyond cranking up the air conditioning or using portable dehumidifiers. By learning how dehumidification works, you’ll be in a better position to design a system that truly meets your needs.

How Does Dehumidification Work?

Whole-house dehumidifiers remove moisture (latent heat) from the air, allowing the air conditioner to focus on removing the heat sensed by the thermostat (sensible heat). This allows the air conditioner to operate more efficiently and achieve the SEER rating it was designed to achieve.

An advantage of whole-house dehumidifiers is that they provide improved levels of home comfort during mild periods when the air conditioner may not be running enough to remove excess moisture. For these conditions when humidity relief is necessary, but lower temperatures aren’t – such as morning and evenings or during a rainstorm – a whole-house dehumidifier is ideal.

Homeowners using a whole-house dehumidifier also save money on their air conditioning bills because reduces relative humidity in the home makes it feel cooler, so the thermostat can be set at a higher temperature to run the air conditioner less frequently.
