Breathe Easier with American Standard AccuCleanTM

American Standard AccuClean Air Filtration System Eliminates Up to 99.98 Percent of Airborne Allergens and Particles from Filtered Air in the Home.


          TYLER, Texas (May 15, 2006) – Millions of adults and children are plagued with allergies and asthma.  According to the U.S. Environment Protection Agency, 50 percent of all illnesses are either caused or aggravated by poor indoor air quality.  The new American Standard AccuCleanTM could help reduce asthma and allergy triggers, allowing you and your loved ones to breathe easier.

            In one year, more than 40 pounds of dirt and dust can accumulate in a typical American home.  Even some of the cleanest homes can have air quality issues.  For all the dirt and dust you can see floating in the air, there are 99 times more microscopic airborne particles that go unseen by the naked eye.  The American Standard AccuClean whole-house air filtration system establishes a new standard in home air-cleaning technology keeping families safe from breathing in many of these unwanted allergens and irritants that circulate throughout the home.

            “Poor air quality in our homes is a very important health issue,” said Mark Hagan, indoor air quality product systems manager for American Standard Heating and Air Conditioning.  “Improving our indoor air quality is now easier than ever before with the new American Standard AccuClean.”

            Each day, individuals breathe in potentially harmful impurities that pass right through standard filters.  American Standard AccuClean filters more clean air than traditional systems, thus providing the ones you care about with significantly cleaner, healthier air so that they can relax and breathe more easily.


Obtaining Cleaner Air

            The new American Standard AccuClean removes up to 99.98 percent of unwanted airborne particles and allergens from the air passing through the filter.  With AccuClean, the majority of irritating particles like dust, pollen, pet hair and dander, lint, cooking smoke and even bacteria will be removed from the filtered air – making them less likely to add a home’s dust bunny collection.

            “For consumers seeking to make their homes a cleaner, healthier and more comfortable living environment for their families, American Standard AccuClean provides the peace of mind by eliminating the great majority of unwanted airborne particles found in the home, “Hagan continued.

            American Standard AccuClean is available as part of a new American Standard central system or as an accessory to existing central heating or cooling systems.  The cost will vary installed, although price vary according to type of system.  Installing the system as an accessory to an existing central system is a quick process that can be done easily by any independent American Standard dealer.
