High Efficiency Air Filters
A Dynamic air cleaner will turn your home's heating and air conditioning
system into a HIGH EFFICIENCY central air cleaning system.
Dynamic electrostatic air cleaners easily trap:
COMMON HOUSE DUST
SECOND HAND SMOKE
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the
air we breathe indoors is seven times more polluted than outdoor air even in
urban areas. There are 20 million particles in the average cubic foot of air,
and many of these are the causes of allergies and hypersensitive reactions.
Pollutants such as pollen and exhaust smoke come in from outside. A host of
others are generated inside: cooking odors, second hand tobacco smoke, furnace
gasses, fine dust from vacuum cleaners, paint dust, pet hairs and dander,
cleaning product vapors, carpet fibers, molds, bacteria, and viruses. Just about
everything we do indoors affects the quality of the air we breathe.
The most dangerous and more numerous of these allergy
causing pollutants are the very smallest particles unseen to the naked eye. It
is these particles that are behind the EPA's recent push to tighten air quality
standards. Airborne particles are measured in microns. A micron is one 25,000th
of an inch; a human hair is about 150 microns; the smallest thing that we can
see is about 10 microns. As any allergy-sufferer will tell you, what you can't
see will hurt you!. In fact, 97% of the particles in a cubic foot of air are
smaller than 1 micron. That's about 20 million particles per cubic foot of air!
It is these sub-micron particles that stay suspended for days, where you and
your family can inhale them. They then can get by the defenses of the
respiratory system and go deep into the lungs, where they can cause a variety of
health problems. They are also able to go right through most filters in homes,
even those that advertise high-efficiency.
The Dynamic air cleaner is the most
effective filter we have seen for improving the air you breathe in your home.
Dynamic air cleaners were extensively tested
and notified as a medical device by the Health Protection Branch of the
Department of Health & Welfare Canada (Accession #133933)
Dynamic air cleaners are:
|EFFICIENT - Dynamic cleaners will take
the most harmful particles out of the air; the very smallest ones. They will
remove 97% of particles above .3 microns in size - and will make the particles
that are smaller than that group into bigger clusters. Further, the activated
carbon center of the disposable filter pad will absorb many odors and gases.
|UNIQUE - Dynamic cleaners use safe low
voltage (24v) electricity to create a strong static electric field across the
disposable filter pad. Through the power of electrostatic polarization, the
filter then attracts pollution particles - even the tiniest ones - like a
magnet collects paper clips. The active field on the media allows Dynamic to
actually increase in efficiency as they load. |
|PROVEN - Over the last fifteen years
Dynamic cleaners have proven themselves worldwide in hospitals, restaurants,
bars, manufacturing plants, office buildings, and tens of thousands of homes.
|HEALTHY - Most air filters are there
to protect the equipment. By capturing sub-micron particles, Dynamic cleaners
will help protect something far more important: the health of your family.
In addition to being a healthier environment, your home will also be cleaner
and easier to maintain. |
|SIMPLE - Dynamic air cleaners fit
right in where your existing filter is, and are wired into your heating
system, or plug into a 1 15v wall outlet. If you have a heating/cooling system
with no filter rack we can help you find a place for a Dynamic Filter - just
|MAINTENANCE - just unplug the filter,
slide it out and replace the center media pad. No messy cleaning process, no
expensive new filter to buy, your entire system will run more efficiently.
Replacing the pad takes only a couple of minutes generally, three or four
times a year depending on the air quality where you live. |
|ECONOMICAL - Dynamic air cleaners cost
just pennies per month to operate. Further, by keeping your ducts and heating
and cooling equipment cleaner, your entire system will run more efficiently.
Replacement pads cost about $5 a month for a year's supply. |

- Pull your filter out of your furnace or air handler, the size will be
written on the side. If your filter is media only and does not indicate the
size, measure the media. If you have a filter that is wrapped around the
bottom of the furnace please call for instructions.
- Why not buy one of the filters at my local
- They are very inefficient against the most numerous and
smaller particles in the air, generally well below 5 microns in size. Its the
sub-micron (those less than 1 micron) particles that are the cause of damage
to your health. The EPA says indoor air is 7 times more polluted than outdoor
air even in our cities. The Dynamic air filter has been proven
to collect 97%+ of .3 micron particles and larger from the air you breathe -
that's high efficiency!
- What is a "micron" ?
- A micron is 1/25,000th of an inch. The human hair is approximately 150
microns. Indoor pollutants are generally below 3 microns. This is where a vast
majority of the particles in the air are to be found. An increasing number of
studies are finding these smaller particles to be a significant health
hazard. As any allergy sufferer will tell you, what you don't see does hurt
you! To effectively clean air, the sub-micron particles must be
removed. Dynamic air cleaners will remove up to 98% of these particles on a
multiple pass basis. For example, when tested by an independent lab in a test
hours, after just ten hours of operation, we were able to remover 97% of the
particles between .3 and.5 microns and 99% of the particles .5 microns or
larger. And our efficiency actually increases as the filter pad loads with
pollutants! This is why the Dynamic filters is referred to as a high
efficiency filter - it isn't just "talk" - it's fact.
- Does this filter create a 'snapping' sound, does
it create ozone?
- This is a unique patented non-ionizing filter that creates no poisonous
ozone or 'snapping' noises (noises generated when unwanted ozone is being
produced) when it is working. It works by assigning polarity to all the
particles in the air as well as the special patented fiberglass media in the
filter. These millions of particles themselves then act like small magnets
inside the filter and they cling to each other then cling to the media in the
filter. Just as paper clips on a magnet attract other paper clips, the dirt
collected by these filters becomes part of the collecting surface, giving the
filter increasing efficiency as it loads with contaminants removed from the
- I have an ionization type electronic air cleaner
and noticed dust on my TV and computer screen. What causes this to happen?
- Electronic air cleaners to date have been "ionizing" type air cleaners
that positively charge all the particles in the air. In theory they
will then collect to the negatively (or grounded) collector plates. The
problem is that when the plates become dirty (usually within only a couple of
hours) the positively charged finer particles slip past the plates. These
particles still carry a positive electrical charge and will then cling to
grounded surfaces in the house such as TV screens or things metallic. The
Dynamic filter is unique and unlike all other filters you may have had. It
does not produce charged particles that when not captured by the filter
cling to grounded surfaces in the house.
- Can I convert my old electronic ionizer air
cleaner, and install a High Efficiency Dynamic Air Filter?
- Yes. The Dynamic air cleaners can fit right into where the two main cells
are located. A 'spacer' will have to be installed so as to make the filter
track 1” wide instead of 4”. This application should take a 20" x 25" or 16" x
25" filter, to check this, measure the size of the two cells side by side.
- Is the Dynamic filter expensive to install?
- In most cases this filter will install in the same filter track that your
existing filter is installed. In those cases where an odd size filter is
currently installed it may require a filter track to be installed. The cost
from most contractors for this filter track would be $ 50. The filter can be
plugged into a standard 115v outlet or can be wired into the 24v system in
your furnace or air handler.
- Is the replacement media expensive?
- Who can put a value on good health? It's only about $ 5 per month to
insure clean, fresh, safe, healthy air in your home year round. HEPA filter
replacements by comparison, can cost several hundred dollars. Conventional
electronic ionizer air cleaners have a high failure rate on the power heads
which cost several hundred dollars to repair and are not as efficient. If
electronic air cleaners come equipped with carbon panels for odor control
these panels usually cost around $80 and need to be replaced at least twice
per year. Also, electronic air cleaners must be cleaned thoroughly at least
once per month, then they should be chemically stripped at least once per
year. Chemical stripping usually cost at least $50.
- What maintenance is involved, and how often must
it be done?
- This varies by house but generally the media will last two to four months.
We recommend replacing the media a minimum of 3 times per year. Simply turn
off the power to your heating/cooling system, pull out the filter open the
hinges, install a new media pad and throw the old media away. We do also
recommend you check your filter each month and if the screen appears dusty,
turn the power off and dust off the face of the filter with a cloth, broom or
How long has this filter been around?
- This filter has been manufactured for over 15 years and used extensively
in Canada, Japan, United States, Europe. It has been
tested and used in many
"clean room" applications, hospitals, doctors offices, casinos, bingo halls
and is now being made available to clean the air that is most important to you
- the air that you and your family breathe.
- How often should we operate the filter?
- We recommend, for maximum effectiveness of air filtration, that
your thermostat be turned to the fan "on" position rather than fan "auto".
This allows for continuous air filtration. This filter will always work
to keep the heating equipment clean when the fan comes on. In the intermediate
heating and cooling seasons, your heating and air conditioning won't come on
very often therefore you won't filter the air very often unless you keep the
fan on. This takes only a small amount of electricity and makes for a
significant difference in the air quality in your home. It will also reduce
the amount of dusting that should be required around the home.
- Can I use any media?
- This filter will not work with standard media. The manufacturer has a
patented process for producing this filter media with an activated charcoal
center section that not only absorbs the odors but also conducts the
electrical charge through the center of the media. Use of any other media will
void warranty and may seriously damage the filter electronics.
