Yes. Basic air cleaners do filter some of the dust, dander and pollen in your home, emphasis on “some.” But... media air cleaners are more effective when it comes to air filters, at a 95% efficiency level. Picture it this way: the sewer grate down at the corner is only good for keeping the really big branches from being sucked down by the rain water. The same goes for smaller particles…you know, the ones that would be great to prevent from flowing through your HVAC system to the entire house: allergens, chemicals, some odors, etc. Basic 1” air filters might as well be the size of a sewer grate as far as their stopping power. Media air cleaners, on the other hand, will get the job done.
The active surface of the media air cleaner filter is greater in size than the typical, coming in at 10 inches. Basic air filters have to be replaced each month, while media air cleaners typically last up to half a year.
Using the right air filter for indoor air quality keeps pollutants in check and promotes a healthy environment that helps develop better health further along.
