ODOR DEFENSE™ IS THE BEST FILTER YOU CAN GET ! ........Skip the reading and See the video below
Don't let the name fool you. ODOR DEFENSE does a lot more than just remove odors.
ODOR DEFENSE™ filters use a special carbon filter media known as Gray Matter® that not only removes foul odors and harmful gases, but also removes microscopic dust, and other contaminants and pollutants, the ones that can cause you trouble. For example, it captures pollen, mold spores, dust mites, cat and dog dander, and many more contaminants from the airflow in your home. By the way, mold spores are everywhere, and are a common component of household and workplace dust. To find out about this special carbon filter material, see video at bottom of page.
The ODOR DEFENSE™ air filter also removes and traps harmful gases that flow around the air in your home. These can come to your home in many ways and from many products, such as cleaning agents, pesticides, toilets, paints, pet odors, cooking odors, smoke, and many others (see list below). According to Lee S. Newman, MD, MA, 1These gases are inhaled by you and your family members and can overtime damage lungs, poison your cells, cause allergies, and make you sick in many other ways.......
In a report about the rising rate of childhood cancer, Catherine Metayer, MD, PhD said, 2 “In the environment, a lot of things have changed. A lot of chemicals have been brought in. We are all exposed to many of them. So most likely the increase (in cancer) has been driven by some exposure to environmental factors, combined with genetics,”
ODOR DEFENSE™ is a MERV 8, but if you have a preconceived idea MERV 8 is not good, listen to this. This filter has an Arrestance as high as 95%, and removes dust particles as small as 3 Microns. These are the particulates that can cause you trouble. (As Per ANSI/ASHRAE STANDARD 52.2) To illustrate how small 3 microns are, the dot inside the parenthesis ( . ) is 615 microns. To illustrate further, the naked eye can see a particle only if it is bigger than 40 microns.
ODOR DEFENSE™ has lower resistance to airflow than the higher MERV filters. Filters with high resistance will cause the air conditioning unit to work harder, which increases the chance your system will fail and require more repairs. Also, this situation typically leads to higher costs to heat your home.....Because ODOR DEFENSE™ is a MERV 8, it does not unduly restrict the air flow of your furnace or air handler.
While ODOR DEFENSE™ is a little more expensive than MERV 11 and MERV 13 regular filters, it does much more to improve the living environment in your home or office. This is because it not only removes particles as small as 3 microns, but also removes the harmful gases in your home. MERV 11 and MERV 13 filters do not even come close to cleaning the air in your home as well as ODOR DEFENSE.
Whether you have Allergies or not, you need ODOR DEFENSE on your side for a healthier, cleaner home. We hope after reading this you can see why we say "This is the best whole house filter you can get". It does it all !
