BRAND-----------WEB ADDRESS---RATING

GIBSON-----------gibsonhvac.com----<1*

This is another brand from NORTEK GLOBAL HVAC. They only offer units with MERV 11 filter media which is not that much better than standard pleated air filters. The guarantee on the units is not very good when compared to other brands. 

HONEYWELL--yourhome.honeywell.com--<1*

The TRUE CLEAN media air filters use three stage air filtration but only have a MERV 8 efficiency. They are not really worth the added expense over standard pleated air filters.

KELVINATOR-----kelvinatorhvac.com--<1*

This is another brand from NORTEK GLOBAL HVAC. They only offer units with MERV 11 filter media which is not that much better than standard pleated air filters. The guarantee on the units is not very good when compared to other brands. 

LENNOX------------lennox.com----------5*

The PUREAIR units combine MERV 16 carbon media filters with UV lights and a good warranty. The CARBON CLEAN 16 units are teh same but do not have the UV light. The HC11 media air cleaners are not recommended as they are not much of a step up from traditional pleated air filters.

LUXAIRE-----------luxaire.com----------2*

This brand is a part of UNITARY PRODUCTS GROUP which is a part of JOHNSON CONTROLS. They offer filters with MERV 11 or 13 efficiencies and they are backed by a good warranty.

MAYTAG--------maytaghvac.com------<1*

NUTONE--------nutonehvac.com-------<1*
