Clogged air filters are a primary problem in the heating and cooling system at home. Over time, dust and debris clog up in air filters, restricting airflow and forcing the furnace to consume more energy to heat or cool your home. Due to a delay in changing filters, the problem worsens and leads to an increase in energy bills. What if you could get notified when it is the time to change the air filter? That’s the purpose of ALVI, a smart furnace filter by CleanAir.
Interestingly, the ALVI smart furnace filter has built-in sensors to notify users when it needs to be changed, making it highly useful. By notifying you to change the air filter, it literally helps save up to $200 yearly on HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) maintenance. It uses two watts of power, which is efficient when compared to standard air filters.
A polarized field is created around the filter that accumulates and traps dust and other small particles. As particles move into the polarized field they combine together and the electro-fiber media can catch them easily. It provides HEPA-class air quality and removes up to 98-percent of household allergens and asthma triggers. In contrast to standard air filters that only remove particles that are 3 microns in size, ALVI’s active polarized technology can remove most harmful particles as minute as .007 microns.
ALVI uses replaceable low-density filter cartridges that allow the air to circulate freely, allowing the home to heat up and cool faster. They work longer than an average filter, lasting between four to six months. This smart air filter can be controlled with a companion mobile app. It also works with Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Nest, and EcoBee.
Available in over 50 sizes, ALVI can fit in any furnace. Each unit is provided with an ALVI cartridge and a power adapter. If you are looking for a smart indoor air quality solution, it is the right choice for you. If you agree, you can back it on Indiegogo campaign with $200 to get one shipped to you in October 2019.
