Don’t pay a lot of money for a “whole house” system that only works 60% to 70% of the time (if then)!
As the air in your home circulates, it picks up dust, lint, particles from dead dustmites, pollen, mold, and a host of other microscopic intruders. Unless these allergens are removed from the air, they continue to circulate and can cause sneezing, coughing and other breathing problems for everyone in the house.
Installing an electrostatic filter on your central system’s return air vents is one way to help clean the air-but there is a drawback. The filter only works when your central unit is blowing air during the heating or cooling process. Since most units run only about 60% to 70% of the time, that means the air in your home is being filtered only 60% to 70% of the time. If you turn your central system off, as some of us do during the mild days of spring and fall, the air in your home is getting zero filtering! Whatever comes into or is stirred up in your home goes into your nose or settles back onto the furniture–to be stirred up again.
There is a lot you can do yourself in your home to prevent the causes of allergy symptoms.
With the Amaircare whole house unit installed, the air is filtered through HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Arresting) filters and put back into circulation continuously-24 hours a day/7days a week/365 days of the year regardless of the state of your central unit. That’s because the Amaircare unit has its own blowers and operates independent of your central system’s fan. This is a major benefit over many other so-called whole house units that depend on airflow from your central system fan to push or pull air through them. Be sure and ask anyone proposing a “whole house” unit about this very important point. If it only works when your central system is running, don’t waste your money.
Every installation can also have a fresh air supply line added to introduce outside air into your home after it has been filtered through the Amaircare system.
The system may be installed on any central unit regardless of where the blower is located. Shown here are typical attic,outside, and basement/crawlspace installations.
Unit size for your home is determined using total square footage, average ceiling heights, and the number of thermostats in use. Please call us toll-free for help in determining the estimated cost of adding an Amaircare unit to your home. Prices start at about $1,000. If you or someone in your home suffers from airborne allergens, it’ll be some of the best money you’ve spent in your life.

Stage 2: HEPA filter
99.97% efficient @ 0.3 microns. Removes dust, pollen, mold, bacteria, animal dander, attached viruses, cigarette smoke, radon daughters and more.
Stage 3: Optional V.O.C. filter (smoke)
(that’s the one lying on its side beside the unit) Removes smoke and chemicals that may come from cleaners, paints, solvents, carpet, furniture and other items containing synthetic materials.
Inline Filter Units
Unlike other “whole-house” systems, the Amaircare®™ Central Air Filtration System keeps working even when the central system isn’t running.
No Harmful Byproducts
The Amaircare®TM Air Filtration System does not produce toxins such as ozone.
Continuous Airflow produces other benefits too
- Reduces heat stratification
- Creates dehumidifying effect that discourages mold
- Provides cooling effect during warm weather
