    I guess I was shocked to see the Aprilare 5000 finally detroned as the highest rated unit and the fact that the clean effects beat out the Aprilaire and Carrier Infinity. In my mind I thought it...

    Does Lennox put the pressure drop in writing? That seems awfully low. I didn't see full specs for the unit on thier website.

    mom2jzm, In response to your question about the cost, your hvac tech should be able to tell you how many watts your blower is using. A variable speed blower would save you money if your current...

    Per the Lennox website, the Pure Air produces no ozone. However, if you are a little skeptical about that ozone claim and want something a little cheaper, go with the Healthy Climate 16 Media Air...

    I would stay away from the Aprilaire. I have one and the maintenance is a real pain, but easier than an EAC like Trane Clean Effects. The Infinity and Lennox Pure Air should be roughly equivalent...

    The F200 is a great value for the money. I also saw that some of the Lennox Merv 16 filters also work with the F200 cabinet if you wanted an instant upgrade later. I would stay away from the...

    As an allergy sufferer I personally wouldn't use less than merv 11 filters. I would stick with at least the merv 6 or higher if anyone has allergies.

    Filter Pressure Drop Monitor

    Has anyone ever used the Filtrometer products or GeneralAire G99 for measuring pressure drop across filters? The Filtrometer website is http://www.filtrometer.com/. If you can recommend another...

    I would stay away from the Honeywell F300 as any "electronic" air cleaner with washable cells loses its efficiency rapidly. The Honeywell F200 is cheaper and better in my opinion. As the media gets...

    If you don't want to change your equipment, the best you can readily get is MERV 11 filters. The website http://www.iaqsource.com sells them at reasonable prices. If you have an odd size...

    Check out the website http://www.iaqsource.com/...

    Check out the website http://www.iaqsource.com/ which has a number of options and sells replacement filters for everything. The Honeywell F200 line of media filters offers great bang for the buck.

    Dordad,

    I'm not a pro, but I grew up with asthma in a house very much like yours in PA with dogs and cats. I had a miserable childhood being sick much of the time, and therefore I would recommend...

    You can get a Honeywell F200 on the internet from www.iaqsource.com in a variety of sizes. It is basically just a filter housing that uses 4" MERV 11 filters. I buy my replacement filters from...

    Sarah,

    Cellulose can be a very dusty product. Another issue you need to be aware of is future repairs being done on your house and how 'dirty' the process will be based on your decisions now. If...

    Sam,

    There is a biobased website at http://www.biobased.net. I am not an expert on this, but I belive they do recommend having ventilation from the HVAC system in the attic space. I have heard...

    Sarah,

    The BioBased insulation is a low VOC product. Icynene is the gold standard but the Biobased should be close. Get a quote from installers for both products and ask them to provide you with...

    Sam,

    Yeah, Icynene is very expensive, especially for roof insulation where you need high r values. I have used it in a cathedral ceiling and my finished basement. Biobased insulation is a similar...

    Sarah,

    If you are looking to insulate your attic or any other part of your house, don't use blown in fiberglass or cellulose. These could make your IAQ worse. Go with Icynene or Biobased foam...

    Sarah,

    A MERV 11 4" filter would be great, but you should really look into the Carrier Infinity system. It combines a good media filter with the enhacements of an electronic air filter to give...
