The F300 Whole-House Electronic Air Cleaner by Honeywell removes up to 98 percent of airborne particles passing through the system. The system creates an electrical charge on airborne particles and then collects them like a magnet, much like the consumer units commonly advertised. The system is also low-maintenance, requiring periodic cell washes by the homeowner. For FREE information, visit

In My Own Words

"These purifiers are an integral part of every Haven Properties healthier, high-performance home. The four-inch pleated filters trap more particles and up to five times more pollutants than regular air filters. Our home buyers notice that they dust less frequently and their allergy symptoms improve, which says a lot in Atlanta's high-pollen environment. Plus, home buyers who have pets tell us they notice less pet fur in their homes."


Touted as clean, safe and green, the Zen Series of surfaces from Cosentino's Silestone Quartz line include five colors ranging from plum, brown and white.

The countertops are an integral part of 'The Cleaner Kitchen,' which we're proud to offer standard with every home we build."
