The Model 5000 whole-home electronic air cleaner has been redesigned based on contractor feedback, including features that help with installation and maintenance, and reduce callbacks. The inlet/outlet size is the same size as Model 2400 media air cleaner and allows for fewer transitions and added convenience, states the manufacturer. An indicator light shows the homeowner that the unit is working. The new top and bottom latches aid door installation. Over 72 square feet of filter media permanently traps allergy-causing, pollen-sized particles at a rate greater than 99.5 percent, states the manufacturer. The filter media is disposable.
