Finding the best solution for allergies starts with determining what allergens trigger your symptoms. Particles that trigger allergies vary in size from small (10 microns) to very small (.03 microns). Knowing your primary allergy enables us to find a cost effective air filter to help reduce your symptoms. Some people are allergic only to large particles, such as pollen, that can be effectively controlled with a MERV13 media-type air cleaner such as the Aprilaire 2400 which traps 97% of pollen. Finer allergens such as mold and pet dander require the use of a whole-house MERV16 electronic air cleaner such as the Aprilaire 5000 which traps 99% of airborne mold. Ultraviolet air purifiers also work well with good filters to kill mold spores and neutralize air-borne chemicals.
