Filtration Options

 

What is in a filter?
The High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance (HEPA) filter is the heart of the air purifier. It is the medium that captures up to 99.97% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 to 0.5 microns that pass through the unit, including dust, pollen and smoke. This reduces the allergens in the air and improves indoor air quality. 

Hunter offers three HEPA-type filtration options for treating the air that passes through your air cleaner:

  

2-in-1 Carbon + HEPA Replaceable Filters
Our most advanced technology marries a honeycomb layer of dual carbon with a layer of traditional HEPA filtration into one singular unit. The carbon layer utilizes both premium grade bituminous charcoal as well as charcoal derived from bamboo, one of nature's fastest growing natural resources. When placed into service along with our ViroSilver pre-filter, this is arguably the best filtration system in the industry.
  • High-quality bituminous charcoal is an excellent odor removal agent, particularly effective against VOCs, smoke, pet and other household odors
  • Bamboo charcoal's natural long grain molecular structure gives it amazing odor absorbing capacity against harmful gases such as formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, and methanol
  • HEPA filtration layer captures up to 99.9% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 to 0.5 microns that pass through the unit, including dust, pollen, and smoke
  • Excellent system for new construction or any environment where odor removal is a chief concern
  • Needs replacement every 6-12 months depending on usage and conditions

 

Replaceable HEPA-type Filters
Replaceable filters utilize a traditional HEPA media encased in a single-use frame. These filters are up to 99.97% effective at capturing particles passing through the unit. These can be paired with either standard activated carbon pre-filters or ViroSilver pre-filters.
  • HEPA filtration layer captures up to 99.97% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 to 0.5 microns that pass through the unit, including dust, pollen, and smoke
  • Pair with a carbon pre-filter for added filtration and odor control
  • No maintenance; discard after single use
  • Great choice for heavy allergy sufferers 
  • Needs replacement every 6-12 months depending on usage and conditions

 

 

 

 

Cleanable HEPA-type Filters
Cleanable filters feature a coated HEPA media housed in a reusable frame. These filters are up to 99.5% effective at capturing particles passing through the unit. With regular inspection and cleaning, filters can be used for 18-24 months before replacement is recommended. These filters can also be paired with either standard activated carbon pre-filters or ViroSilver pre-filters.
  • HEPA filtration layer captures up to 99.5% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 to 0.5 microns that pass through the unit, including dust, pollen, and smoke
  • Pair with a carbon pre-filter for added filtration and odor control
  • Check regularly; vacuum and reuse
  • Great choice for light users
  • Needs replacement every 18-24 months depending on usage and conditions
