BENEFITS OF AIR FILTRATION SYSTEMS
Because most modern homes are built for efficiency, they tend to let very little fresh, outdoor air inside. Things like dust, pet dander, smoke, gas fuel (from the furnace or range), cleaning supply fumes, chemical fumes, and many others can accumulate in your home’s air supply. Air filtration systems are designed to remove air pollutants so that your home’s air supply is cleaner. Here are some of the benefits of air filtration systems.
- Respiratory health – The EPA estimates that poor indoor air quality is one of the top 5 leading threats to respiratory health. Keeping your home’s air as clean as possible could help improve your and your family’s respiratory health.
- Reduced allergies – Many causes of allergies can be traced back to poor indoor air quality. Dust, pet dander, pollen, mold and bacteria can all trigger allergies and removing them could increase the comfort in your home.
- Less dust – By removing dust from your home’s air supply you might be able to lower the total amount of dust in your home.
- Less mold – Mold reproduces by sending out spores into the air. Many air filtering systems can capture mold spores which could help to keep you home mold-free.
TYPES OF AIR FILTRATION SYSTEMS
There are several different types of air filtration systems that homeowners can choose to have installed in their home. Take a look below and then give us a call if you have any questions.
MECHANICAL AIR FILTERS
When you think of “air filters” these are likely what you imagine. Mechanical filters are usually installed in your home’s ductwork or air handler and use a very dense material, similar to fiberglass that traps pollutants in the air. These type of air filters are given a minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV) rating that describes how effective they are. The higher the MERV, the more dense the filter is. HEPA filters that are often used in hospitals and clean rooms typically have a MERV rating around 20. However, these filters are much too dense for residential use whose filters usually are between 10 and 15. These filters need to be changed or cleaned regularly in order to maintain their effectiveness and prevent them from decreasing the efficiency of your home.
ELECTROSTATIC AIR FILTERS
Though they are also installed in your ducts or air handler, electrostatic air filters operate much differently than mechanical ones. They produce an electric energy that charges the particles moving through your ducts while a collector plate with the opposite charge attracts the particles to it where they stick. This collector plate needs to be cleaned regularly so that it can continue to be effective.
