Introducing American Standard AccuClean
AccuClean is the most effective air filtration system in the nation, period. It can clean up to an astonishing 99.98% of allergens from the filtered air that your family breathes, so everyone will feel more comfortable, no matter the reason.
Just think: With AccuClean, the majority of irritating particles like dust, pollen, pet hair and dander, dust mites, mildew, lint, fungus, most tobacco smoke, cooking grease, even bacteria, will be removed from the filtered air.
What's more, our revolutionary technology can trap allergens down to .3 microns in size. Particles like dust, soot, mold spores and bacteria are often .3 microns - so small that 11,759 of them could fit on the period at the end of this sentence.
It's also the size at which allergens can get deep into your lungs because they aren't filtered well by the nose and throat. AccuClean removes tiny particles like these, effectively reducing the potential triggers for asthma and allergy attacks.
Why is American Standard AccuClean Air Filtration better than the rest?
The reason is simple, really. It's all in the technology. Other filters, such as HEPA filters, trap airborne particles by forcing air through very dense mesh screens. Although these screens are effective at catching dirt, over time they become clogged and hamper airflow. The result is what's referred to as a "pressure drop", meaning the amount of air that can flow through the filter is considerably less. In other words, less air is cleaned less efficiently.
Not so with AccuClean. Our unique and patented filter gives you long-lasting and consistent performance with the lowest pressure drop and highest efficiency of any filtration system on the market. That means cleaner air than you've ever experienced before.
Fill your whole house with clean, consistent comfort
AccuClean is a whole house air cleaner, meaning it works in conjunction with your heating and cooling system to clean up to 99.98% of airborne allergens from filtered air in every room of your home. Compare this to plug-in air cleaners that operate in a single room. To match the effect of a whole house system, you'd have to buy several plug-in cleaners at a cost of $300 to $500 each. Even then, plug-ins are only effective within a certain radius, potentially leaving much of the air in the room unfiltered.
The AccuClean whole house air filtration system is the best way to make sure your family breathes air that's exceptionally clean - no matter what room they're in - for maximum comfort.
How to get even more from AccuClean
A heating and cooling system is only as good as the sum of it's parts. And, even though each component is separate, they're all designed and engineered to work together as a "matched system." With AccuClean as part of an American Standard matched system, you can rest assured that you'll experience maximum comfort, efficiency and clean air.
This is especially true if you install AccuClean into a system that features a variable speed fan motor. Not only will you be able to clean up to 99.98% of allergens from the filtered air, you'll be able to reduce dust mites by keeping the air below 50% humidity. And since a variable speed motor operates at a lower speed most of the time, you'll also save energy - and see lower utility bills - while breathing cleaner air.
The best Air Filtration System available
No other air filtration system delivers cleaner air - or more of it - than AccuClean. The clean air delivery rate is what really matters because it measures filter cleaning efficiency and airflow, which can directly affect your family's comfort level. The higher the value, the more effective the air cleaner.
Keeping your home ozone-free
Some consumers have expressed concern about the ozone emissions of ionic air cleaners. It's a valid concern, and one of that American Standard takes seriously. Research has shown that plug-in air cleaners emit the highest levels of ozone, while whole house systems like AccuClean deliver almost none. In fact, we designed AccuClean to fall well below the PDA voluntary emission limit for medical devices. At American Standard, we consider safety and quality to be top priorities. So you can rest assured that the clean air delivered throughout your home by AccuClean is good for you and good for the environment.
Experts trust AccuClean - your family can too
AccuClean is the new industry benchmark verified by leading experts who make it their business to know about clean air.
Key among them is Dr. John Spengler, Ph. D., a faculty member of the Harvard School of Public Health and co-founder of Environmental Health & Engineering, Inc. (EH&E), a company dedicated to ensuring safe and productive working and living environments. EH&H has verified that AccuClean is highly capable of reducing airborne pollutants and creating a clean, comfortable environment inside your home.
AccuClean was also tested by IMS technologies, Inc. a company that specializes in air filtration testing and verification. The result? The amount and quality of clean air delivered by American Standard AccuClean was judged to be second to none.
Today's homes are better insulated, tightly sealed and use less energy. However, sealing your home also seals in humidity, dust and indoor pollutants. In fact, the quality of air inside your home is probably worse than it is outdoors. Not only can dirty air make you less comfortable, it can create a serious problem for family members who suffer from asthma and allergies. Consider this....
- Indoor pollutants can be 5 times higher than outdoor pollutants
- Most homes naturally generate about 40 pounds of dust per year for every 1,500 square feet of space
- One ounce of dust can hold about 40,000 dust mites, one of the most common household allergens
- Up to 72 trillion allergens find their way into your home every day
- Allergy and asthma cases have grown exponentially, causing significant health care cost increases
- 54% of single-family homes with children have someone with a respiratory ailment
- Children inhale 50% more air per pound of body weight than adults, so they are especially sensitive to air quality problems
Your family deserves clean air as well as conditioned air
Many people believe that their heating and cooling system is already cleaning the air of these indoor pollutants and allergens. Most systems are equipped with a standard 1" throwaway air filter, but these filters are designed primarily to keep large particles from damaging the equipment. They are not designed to actually clean the air.
At American Standard, we believe that your heating and cooling system should clean as well as condition the air. AccuClean will help your system do just that, far better than any other air filtration system on the market.
