"Why is there so much dust in the air when I have an air filter in my furnace and air conditioner?" you may be wondering. Well, the answer to this question is pretty simple. That basic air filter in your HVAC systems is not really intended to improve the indoor air quality throughout your home. Instead, it is primarily there to protect the HVAC systems themselves.
In order to improve and maintain your indoor air quality throughout your house, you can use designated air filtration and air purifier systems, though. These systems must be a good fit for your existing HVAC system, however, and should be selected carefully with your unique situation in mind. Hire Area Heating & Cooling, Inc. to install and service your air filters and/or air purifiers in Vancouver, WA and you can count on that.
Sometimes, homeowners make the mistake of thinking that the most efficient air filter is the best one for filtering pollutants out of the air in their home. The trouble with choosing the most efficient air filter on the market is that it is probably going to overwhelm your HVAC system.
Using a HEPA filter that would be appropriate in a hospital setting, for instance, won’t really serve your home well. Pay attention to the MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value) of the filter that you’re considering, and be sure to ask our team any questions that you may have.
Air purifiers are the next logical step up from air filters. Air filters, as you probably know, simply collect pollutants on a filtering media as air passes through the filter. Air purification systems, on the other hand, take a much more active approach in cleaning the air in your home. There are 2 general categories of air purifiers that homeowners usually use. These are electronic and UV air purifiers.
There is little point in investing in the best equipment on the market if you are not also going to invest in outstanding services for those systems.
