Considering how much time you and your family spend indoors, the air quality of your living space should be a top priority. Without an effective filtration system, you could be exposing yourself to a variety of pollutants ranging from gases to molds. The Environmental Protection Agency warns that the following health risks can result from indoor air pollution:
- Respiratory illness
- Heart disease
- Increase in allergy symptoms
- Burning sensation in the throat or nose
The list isn’t exhaustive, but it should be more than enough reason to invest in the best air filtration system you can find.
Mitsubishi air conditioning units are a possible solution. For example, Mitsubishi ductless systems feature filtration technology that is not only effective, but also easy to maintain. Multi-stage filtration allows the ductless mini splits to capture common pollutants such as pollen, dust, as well as viruses and bacteria that can trigger illness in your home’s occupants.
You also have options when it comes to the type of filter. Catechin filters, as their name suggests, take advantage of the antibacterial and antiviral features of catechin to trap pollutants. Premium units can be fitted with Platinum Deodorizing filters, which use a platinum catalyst to keep your air free of unpleasant smells and particles. The latter option will need to be replaced more often.

The catechin filters in these ductless heating and air systems can last up to 10 years if you treat them right. For the Mitsubishi ductless models, all you need to do is turn off the system, open the system door, and remove the filtration screen by lifting up on it and then pulling it out. Hand wash your screens and let them dry before putting them back. Depending on the amount of potential pollutants in your living space, you should complete this process at least once every two weeks.
Compare these features of ductless AC and heating units to those offered by traditional systems that require ducts. When it comes to general cleanliness, it’s not difficult for dust and dirt to build up in the ducts, and then end up in your living space. In some cases, air ducts require professional maintenance when foreign objects make their way into the system. Overall, the ductless systems offer an easier path to clean air.
