I am an HVAC/R contractor but lack knowledge in IAQ issues, so I'm hoping you great guys can help me out. Here's the problem; I smoke and my wife nags constantly. I am redecorating the family room and and only now see all the nicotine stains and crud that my smoking causes. (It's quite disgusting, but NO, I'm not ready to quit smoking!) I have a Honeywell 20x25x4 media filter coupled to Heil 90+ 2 stage, variable blower furnace with twin lamp UV downstream from A/C coil. I am thinking of putting in an electronic air cleaner. Here are the questions:
1) Should the EAC be up stream or down stream from the filter?
2) Should I discard or keep the media filter with an EAC?
3) What is the best EAC?
4) What CFM should blower be set to on manual fan for best efficiency?
Thanks in advance for your help 'cos I can't take the nagging anymore! (Replies suggesting getting rid of the wife need not be posted;- it is not financially viable!)
