Whole Home Air Filtration

Breathe easier when you work with Rümi's certified technicians!

Many heating and cooling systems use a basic air filter to protect the equipment, but fail to protect the people inside the building who are using the equipment. The air we breathe has contaminants from things we notice, like smoke or pollen, as well as things we don’t, like formaldehyde, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and mould. Homes today are built more airtight than ever. That's great for keeping the heat in, but is also helps contaminants accumulate. But the average filter is only capable of removing 3–5% of the particles that pass through it, leaving the majority of air pollutants to fly freely around your home. Yuck! 

Our customized whole home air filtration solutions are installed directly into the existing heating and cooling systems of your home. They remove nearly 99.97% of contaminants (0.3 microns and over) and 95% of microscopic particles, circulating treated air freely throughout the home.  

Proper humidity, ventilation, and temperature control will create a healthier atmosphere within your home. Rümi installs whole-household air quality systems and humidifiers to keep the air you breathe indoors clean and comfortable.

Home Air Filtration FAQS

  • Where does an air filter live in my home?

    Rümi’s HVAC purifiers are installed in the return-air ductwork just before the air handler or furnace. You won't notice the filter there space-wise, but air quality-wise, it makes a massive difference!

  • Can this system work with my HVAC system?

    Yes, we provide both portable, standalone air HEPA filtration systems, which can be simply plugged into any 120V electrical outlet. We also offer whole home and large building filtration solutions that are built into the central air circulation system. 

  • What type of air filtration system should I use?

    Amaircare filtration products provide exceptional HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) and carbon filtration products that are directly installed into your home’s existing HVAC systems. The result is cleaner, healthier indoor air in all rooms of the home.  

    These filters remove nearly 99.97% of contaminants of 0.3 microns and over, and an impressive 95% of microscopic particles as small as 0.1 microns — for reference, a human hair has a diameter of 100–300 microns! The three-stage filtration process removes particulates, bioburden and VOCs.  

  • Will I have to change the air filters?

    Generally yes, though this depends on the type and model of air filtration system you choose. Some filters need to be replaced every 6 months, while others may only require replacement every couple of years. Our technicians are always happy to discuss the ins and outs of filters. (That's what makes them so much fun at parties!). 

  • How do whole home air filtration systems work?

    A whole home air filtration system works by installing a filter into the home's existing HVAC system. The filter removes contaminants from the air, improving the air quality in all of the home's rooms.

  • What are the benefits of a whole home air filtration system?

    A whole home air filtration system can provide your family with cleaner, healthier air. These systems work by removing contaminants from the air in your home. They can also help reduce allergies and asthma symptoms.

  • How much does a whole home air filtration system cost?

    Whole home air filtration systems can cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars, depending on the size and complexity of the system. Generally, the more features and capabilities a system has, the more expensive it will be. However, most homeowners find that the benefits of having a whole home air filtration system far outweigh the initial cost. 

  • What type of air filtration system should I choose for my home?

    There are a few different types of air filtration systems that you can choose from when getting a new system for your home. The most common type of air filter is the mechanical filter, which uses a screen or mesh to trap particles in the air. Another type of filter is the activated carbon filter, which uses activated carbon to remove chemicals and odours from the air. The last type of filter is the ultraviolet air filter, which uses UV light to kill bacteria and viruses in the air.
