Since I am getting my first heat pump installed next week, I decided that it would be a good idea to get a better filter system installed as well. The sales guy talked me into the Airscreen 1000 (after I groaned at the price of the Honeywell F300 Electronic Cleaner that they want 650 for). They want 299 for the Cimatec Airscreen 1000 and he told me it was a great product for the price.

I asked about the media filters instead but he really discouraged me from those products (they offer the Honeywell F200 or F150). He said the replacement filters for those media filters are very costly and need to be replaced every 3-4 months whereas the Airscreen filters are very reasonably-priced (even though they also have to be replaced at least as often).

I can't find much research out there about these filter systems and the pros and cons so I'm hoping I can get some advice out there. Will I be okay with the Airscreen 1000? I'm hoping so!
