16" x 20" x 1" Dynamic® 1P1620C24 Electronic Polarized-Media Air Cleaner (Rheem/Protech 84-16X20-1)

Combining ease of installation with low static pressure (for lower energy consumption and system wear), 1" Dynamic Air Cleaners are high-efficiency whole-house electronic air cleaners with an equivalency rating of MERV 13. As tiny sub-micron particles and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) pass through the central heating and cooling system, they become polarized. The polarized particles get larger as they join together with other polarized particles and collect on a disposable low-static polarized media pad with an activated charcoal center screen. Dynamic Air Cleaners remove difficult odors and provide an efficiency of 97% for particles down to .3 microns in size. 1" panels fit directly into existing filter racks or filter grilles and are powered using simple 24V wiring connected to the central HVAC system to the "R" and "C" terminals located on most gas furnace integrated control boards. Refer to the Dynamic Polarized Media Electronic Air Cleaner Installation Instructions & Consumer Information for details. An optional 110-Volt step-down transformer (#84-110V-24V) allows the appliance to be plugged directly into any standard wall outlet.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) About Dynamic Air Cleaners:

  • What's MERV?: MERV, or Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, is a number from 1 to 16 that is relative to air filter efficiency. The higher the MERV value, the more efficient the air filter is at removing particles. At the lower end of the efficiency spectrum a fiberglass panel filter may achieve MERV 4 or 5. At the higher end, filters that achieve MERV 13 or 14 are typically used in hospitals and clean rooms. High MERV filters are capable of removing higher quantities of extremely small contaminant (particles as small as 1/300 the diameter of a human hair). Higher MERV ratings can create problems with greater airflow resistance. This is also referred to as static pressure. With most filters the filter media becomes denser, and static pressure increase, as the filter efficiency increases. Increased static pressure forces the system fan motor to work harder as it pushes air through the filter. This also increases energy consumption. So for optimum performance, consumers should select the highest efficiency filter with the lowest static pressure.
  • What’s a Micron?: Particle size is usually measured in microns, a metric unit of measure. A micron is 1/25,000 of an inch. There are over 20 million particles in the average cubic foot of indoor air. Approximately 98% of all particles (by count) are in the size range of 5 microns or less. Visible particles represent only a small fraction of particles found in indoor air. Here's a representation of how these sizes are broken down:
    • Eye of a needle 500 to 2000 microns
    • Grain of Sand 100 to 2000 microns
    • Human Hair 40 to 300 microns
    • Pollen 10 to 50 microns
    • Mold Spores 10 to 30 microns
    • Bacteria .07 to 10 microns
    • Typical Dust .01 to 10 microns
    • Paint Particles .05 to 3 microns
    • Tobacco Smoke .01 to 3 microns
    • Viruses .001 to .01 microns
