Enhance the Air Quality In Your Home With a State of the Art Air Cleaning System From Althoff

In our climate we spend long stretches of the year inside. According to the EPA, the air indoors where we spend as much as 90% of our time can be more polluted than city smog! That pollution can lead to all kinds of health complications, from infections and allergic reactions to asthma and other respiratory problems.

Indoor air pollution is more than just the dust you see on end tables or bookshelves. What’s actually swimming around in the air is an invisible mix of:

  • dust mites
  • pollen
  • dander
  • mold
  • smoke
  • volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • bacteria
  • other asthma triggers

To fight these indoor contaminants you need a whole house air cleaning system that gets to the root of the air quality issues in your home. At Althoff Industries, we believe in three foundations to improving indoor air quality:

  • Filtration
  • Purification
  • Odor Removal

We’ll help you find an air cleaning system that works best with your heating/cooling system and your humidifier, then install it quickly and correctly so you can begin to breathe easier.

Air Filtration 

We recommend a high efficiency media filter and cabinet from Aprilaire. Based on your needs our typical installation is either Merv 11 or Merv 13.

MERV means Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value which was developed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioner Engineers - ASHRAE. MERV values vary from 1 to 16. The higher the MERV value is the value the more efficient the filter will be in trapping airborne particles.


Merv 11

  • Removes 94% of pollen and mold
  • Removes 72% of airborne bacteria and fungi
  • Removes 56% of dust particles

Aprilaire Model 1210 Air Purifier
