Air Quality Testing in Wilmington NC

Airmax Heating and Cooling proudly carries Trane CleanEffects electronic air filtration systems.

Trane CleanEffects uses patented, breakthrough air cleaning technology to remove up to 99.8% of airborne allergens from the air that passes through the filter, without significantly reducing the air flow, making it 8 times more effective than even the best HEPA room air filter and 100 times more effective than a standard 1" filter. TRANE CleanEffects is so effective that it traps allergens down to .3 microns, the size at which allergens cause the most irritation because your nose, mouth, and throat can't filter them and they get trapped deep in your lungs.

Other electronic air cleaners can remove some of the dust, pollen, mold spores, and other microscopic irritants that make life miserable for people with allergies and respiratory problems. These same contaminants can also harbor harmful, bacteria, and viruses. Trane CleanEffects filters more air at a higher efficiency, so it has a clean air delivery rate twice as high as a standard electronic air cleaner.

The air in your home stays cleaner because air cleaners remove the dust particles that, over time, settle on walls, floors, drapes, upholstery, and other furnishings. Air cleaners also remove dust particles that may cause damage to home entertainments equipment and computer hardware.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) has ranked indoor air pollution as a high priority public health risk (U.S. EPA, 1990). Recently, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) concluded that preventing exposure to environmental allergens and irritants may help prevent asthma and related breathing disorders (NHLBI, 1995).

Here is a sample of the health and environmental effects of poor indoor air quality:

  • asthma
  • rhinitis
  • sinusitis
  • allergic respiratory disease
  • excessive mold
  • bacteria
  • dust
  • dirt
  • smoke
  • increased utility bills (from decreased air flow)
  • unpleasant fumes and odors
