WHY YOUR HOME NEEDS INDOOR AIR FILTRATION
HOW DOES INDOOR AIR FILTRATION WORK?
WHAT TYPE OF AIR CLEANER DO I NEED?
// Protection you need
A central heating and cooling system offers just the basics with regard to enhanced indoor air quality for you and your family. It is estimated that the air you breathe inside your home is more polluted than the air outside your home. Beyond simply heating and cooling the air in your home, don’t you want great indoor air for your family?
We make it a simple decision with Clean ComfortTM Indoor Air Essentials
// What does air cleaning do for my home?
Reduces and removes airborne particulates from your home’s air. Depending on the air cleaner model installed, it can remove:
// Basics of filtration
AM Series media air cleaners help to remove household dust, lint and other particulates passing through the return air ducts of your central heating and cooling system.
Once extracted from the air stream, these particulates can easily be removed permanently from your home system when the filter is replaced or the cells of the electronic air cleaner are washed. The filters of our media air cleaners are easily replaced and should be changed once or twice a year based on conditions within the home.
For best performance of our electronic air cleaners and to keep airflow restriction low, it is recommended that the collector cells be cleaned at least twice a year based on conditions within the home. This is easily done in your laundry tub or outdoors and takes only 10-15 minutes to do.
// Why buy a Five Stage AMHP-250-UPD air cleaner?
The AMHP-250-UPD uses photocatalytic oxidation to decompose volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into basic molecules such as H2O and CO2, thereby reducing odors and airborne chemicals in the process. VOCs are common pollutants emitted (or “off gassed”) from new household furnishings like bedding, carpets and ready-to-assemble furniture.
// Why buy an electronic air cleaner?
The Clean Comfort brand AE14 Series Electronic Air Cleaner is a four-stage filtration system that powerfully attracts and traps solid and liquid airborne particles as small as 0.06 microns from the air in your home. The AE14 Series is well-suited for homes where high efficiency air cleaning is desired but system air flow restriction is a concern (i.e., filtration issues due to undersized duct work within the central heating and cooling system).
// Why buy a media air cleaner?
Inside a Clean Comfort brand AM Series Air Cleaner is a MERV 11 or MERV 14 media filter with electrostatically charged fibers that remove particles as small as 0.3 micron from the air in your home. Easily installed in the system duct work, it provides additional protection from indoor air contaminants throughout your entire home compared to standard furnace filters*. Because the AM Series Air Cleaners’ deep-pleated media filter contains more surface area than standard furnace filters, they capture more particles with little airflow restriction so they last longer between filter changes and put less stress on the heating and cooling system fan.

WHY YOUR HOME NEEDS INDOOR HUMIDITY CONTROL
HOW DOES HUMIDITY CONTROL WORK?
// Your home could have problems without humidity control
Using a humidifier, especially in cold, dry winter months, improves indoor comfort throughout the home. A comfortable humidity level can help reduce common symptoms that may be associated with low humidity levels:
Increasing your home's relative humidity may also allow you to lower the setting on your thermostat and still provide the same level of comfort. Lowering the thermostat setting saves on heating costs.
// Comfort you need
Depending on the geographical location of your home and the time of year, your home could have uncomfortably high or low humidity indoors. The two basic solutions used for these two conditions are humidifiers and dehumidifiers:
Humidifiers add humidity to the home (typically in the colder months) to improve occupant comfort level, and dehumidifiers remove humidity from the home.
// Basics of humidity control
During cold winter months, a low humidity level in your home can make it feel like a desert. Whole home humidifiers add moisture into the ductwork of the heating system in one of two ways: by boiling water into steam and directing that steam into the ductwork, or by drawing warm air from the furnace / air handler through an evaporator pad covered with fresh water and delivering this moisture-laden water into the ductwork.
Professionally installed whole-home humidifiers are a more effective way to humidify your entire home compared to portable units, which can only deliver humidity in the proximity of the room where they’re located. Whole-home humidifiers from Clean Comfort help ensure humidity control throughout your entire home.
// What types of humidifiers are available?
Clean Comfort whole-home humidifiers use one of two technologies to humidify your home: Electrode Steam humidifiers (HS Series) or Evaporative HE Series evaporative (“evaporative flow through”) humidifiers.
// What does humidification do for my home?
Both HE Series evaporative and HS Series electrode steam humidifiers supply moisture to the air in a dry home in winter without the mess associated with portable humidifiers. By maintaining the relative humidity in your home’s air at the right level, humidifiers help protect humidity-sensitive hardwood floors and wood moldings around doors and windows from shrinking or cracking during the dry, winter months. Portable humidifiers also require frequent water re-filling and pad cleaning. Plus, our whole-home humidifiers do not deposit dried mineral dust on the floor like portable humidifiers can.
The HS Series humidifiers are the preferred solution for larger homes as well as homes with variable speed and modulating heating systems, since the amount of humidity they deliver does not rely on the temperature or flow rate of the air leaving the furnace to deliver the right amount of humidity to the home in the way evaporative humidifiers do.
The HE Series humidifiers are a cost-effective and easy-to-install option to add humidity to your home‘s indoor air. This makes the HE Series humidifiers a good choice for smaller homes, homes with a single stage furnace or heat pump, newer homes with tighter construction and continuous vapor barrier, or for installations where a low installed cost is the highest priority.
Both HE and HS Series humidifiers can be configured with a digital humidistat and outdoor temperature sensor to automatically adjust the home’s humidity level to help prevent condensation on your windows on the coldest winter days.

WHY YOUR HOME NEEDS WHOLE HOME DEHUMIDIFICATION
// Your home could have problems without dehumidification
If you experience any of the following problems, you may benefit from having a Clean Comfort whole home dehumidifier.
// What sizes of dehumidifiers are available?
Clean Comfort whole-home dehumidifiers are available in three capacities of water removal per day.
When installed with a DVP Series dehumidistat and a motorized damper,
they can bring fresh air into your home and dehumidify at the same time.
HOW DOES INDOOR AIR FILTRATION WORK?
// Basics of dehumidification
A central air conditioner removes humidity from inside air while cooling your home to the temperature you have set on your thermostat. When outdoor temperatures are more moderate, your central air conditioner doesn’t need to run. But high indoor humidity can make your home uncomfortable. The solution? Lower the relative humidity in your home with a whole-home dehumidifier from Clean Comfort and enjoy automatic year-round comfort in your home.

WHY YOUR HOME NEEDS INDOOR AIR PURIFICATION
// Why your home needs ultraviolet air purification?
Clean Comfort™ brand air purifiers work to reduce the amount of airborne microbes in your home by helping to deactivate them with UVC light. UVC sterilization works by attacking the DNA of microbes, such as bacteria, viruses and mold, preventing them from replicating and eventually destroying them. Because UVC light has been used for decades to help deactivate microbes without emitting chemicals, it is considered a proven and reliable method for sterilizing indoor air.
// How does a UA Series air purifier work?
The UVC light of the UA Series Air Purifiers irradiates microbial contaminants as they pass through the sterilizing chamber. The “Turbulator” acts to slow down and spin the air entering the chamber to increase exposure time with the light from the specially-designed J-shaped UV lamp. The reflective inner surface of the sterilizing chamber further increases the effective intensity of the UV light, resulting in a substantially higher deactivation rate of the microbes passing through the Clean Comfort brand UA4000DV and UA2000DV Air Purifiers compared to UV purifiers without these features, such as single lamp coil purifiers.
// Why your home needs ultraviolet coil purification?
UV disinfection of the coil helps maintain your system’s original performance by inhibiting mold growth which could reduce heat transfer efficiency and air flow through the cooling coil. Left unchecked, mold growth on the coil could clog the tiny spaces between the coil’s heat transfer fins, reducing the efficiency of your heating and cooling system. Mold growth could also lead to mold spores becoming airborne and being circulated throughout your home.
// How does a UC Series coil purifier work?
The dark, cool and damp environment of a cooling coil offers ideal conditions for sustaining mold growth. To combat this, UC Coil Purifiers radiate UVC light, which is an effective method to keep coils clean without harsh chemicals. Clean Comfort brand Coil Purifiers sanitize the coil’s surface, helping to inhibit the growth of mold and other microbials which could deteriorate the system’s performance. These Coil Purifiers operate 24/7 even when your heating and cooling system is not operating.
The UC Series Coil Purifier is installed in the ductwork of your central heating and cooling system, and shines UV light on the evaporator coil and coil pan around the clock. The “Premium Plus” dual-lamp UC36 Coil Purifier not only has twice the sterilizing power of single-lamp UC18 models, it also has an aluminum parabolic reflector that focuses and intensifies the UV energy to the desired area, which helps to ensure a cooling coil with reduced microbial growth.
Ultraviolet purifiers have been used in a wide range of sterilization applications for almost 100 years, including water treatment, food processing and disinfection of hospital equipment.
// What does purification do for my home?
UV purification is considered a proven and reliable method for sterilizing indoor air and the surfaces of cooling coils. The result is cleaner, more comfortable air for your family and a cleaner cooling coil to help maintain your system’s original performance.
// What types of purification units are available?
Clean Comfort has two types of UVC purifiers to treat different types of microbial contaminants in your home.
UA Series Air Purifiers work to deactivate airborne microbial contaminants like bacteria, viruses, mold and allergens, while also deodorizing the air inside your home.
UC Series Coil Purifiers work to deactivate mold that can grow in the dark, humid environment of your heating and cooling system’s cooling coil.
UA Series Air Purifiers use high intensity UVC lamps to deactivate microbes on contact as they travel through the ductwork at speeds up to 500 feet per minute. The purifier only operates when air is flowing in the central HVAC system, which extends the life of the purifier’s lamp compared to operating continuously.
Mold, however, can grow any time on the cooling coil of your system. UC Series Coil Purifiers use lower intensity UV lamps than our air purifiers and operate on a 24/7 basis to help deactivate mold growth around the clock.
// Basics of purification
Outdoors, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation destroys and deactivates airborne biological and chemical contaminants. Just like the sun’s rays, our purification systems’ UV light brings the same natural process into your home. The UVC range of ultraviolet light (with wavelengths of 100 to 280 nanometers) has germicidal activity that deactivates viruses, bacteria and mold by attacking their DNA preventing them from replicating and eventually destroying them.

WHY YOUR HOME NEEDS INDOOR VENTILATION
HOW DOES INDOOR AIR VENTILATION WORK?
// Your home could have problems without ventilation
We spend the majority of our lives indoors. And with homes becoming tighter and more energy efficient, they don‘t “breathe” the way they used to, resulting in the air in your home becoming stale. Pet smells, cooking odors, and off gassing of household furnishings, like carpets and furniture, combine to create an environment that‘s not as fresh as you‘d like. A Clean Comfort brand VH or VE Series ventilator can provide fresh air to your home while managing your energy costs and comfort, no matter what the elements are like outside.
// Basics of ventilation
HRV (Heat Recovery Ventilator)
The Clean ComfortTM brand VH Series HRV works by bringing cool, fresh air into your home, while expelling dry, stale air. This is particularly helpful during the winter months when dry, stale air can continuously circulate inside your home. The heat from the stale indoor air is transferred to the fresh, outdoor air brought in by the HRV, maintaining the comfort and freshness you need year-round. It‘s like opening a window to allow fresh air into your home without affecting your indoor comfort.
ERV (Energy Recovery Ventilator)
The Clean Comfort brand VE Series ERV functions similar to an HRV, but it also helps to manage humidity levels in your home. During the summer months, the ERV ventilation system helps to remove excessive humidity brought in from outdoors, so the air will be fresh and comfortable — no matter what the temperature or humidity is outside. During the winter, when your home can feel dry due to a lack of humidity, the VE Series ERV will help keep humidity in your home, so your humidifier doesn‘t work overtime and you don‘t suffer the effects of winter dryness.
// What does it do for my home?
The air inside your home may be stale, but it still has “energy value” (warm or cool) that you spent money to condition. And you wouldn’t want to just waste that energy in order to get fresh air.
Clean Comfort heat recovery ventilators and energy recovery ventilators introduce fresh air into your home while retaining much of the energy value of the stale air being exhausted from your home.
// What types of ventilation units are available?
There are two families of Clean Comfort ventilators — VH Series Heat Recovery Ventilators and VE Series Energy Recovery Ventilators.
The VH Series HRVs exchange heat from the stale air exhausted from your home to the fresh air drawn into your home.
The VE Series ERVs exchange heat from the stale air exhausted from your home to the fresh air drawn into your home while keeping moisture in the air where you want it: outdoors on hot humid days, and indoors on cold, dry days. If you live in an area that’s humid for much of the year or you have issues with maintaining enough humidity in your home in the winter, an ERV would probably be your best option.
A clean cooling coil, free of mold growth, can ensure specified airflow, help maintain the efficiency of your HVAC system, and reduce the chance of releasing airborne mold spores into your home!
Remember to clean the filters and exchange core in your ventilator annually to help keep them operating efficiently. Out of sight shouldn’t be out of mind!
