Have you noticed an increase in indoor air pollution? Are you sneezing frequently or struggling with a cough that never seems to leave? Dust collecting throughout the home includes a combination of dander, microplastics, pollen, mold, dust mites, bacteria, viruses and smoke, all of which are known to increase health problems. Keeping the home clean and properly ventilated can make a difference in helping everyone in the home breathe cleaner, fresh air.
Media Air Filters
Mechanical air filters, often called media air filters, are designed to last longer than a standard air filter. Media air purifiers can trap small particles by cleaning the air that is sent through the return-air ductwork. Specialty media air filters include HEPA filters, activated charcoal or carbon filters, or charged media filters. Media air cleaners can remove pollutants and allergens from the air, and the replacement filters are affordable.
Standard Air Filter
HVAC systems include an basic air filteration system to prevent dust and contaminants from clogging the blower motor, and reducing the amount of contaminants circulating through the air. Furnace filters can quickly clog with dust, causing the furnace to be overworked and certain particles can get through the filter as it cannot block microscopic particles if it is clogged. A pleated air filter is designed to last up to three months and tends to do a better job against pet dander and pollen compared to a fiberglass air filter.
A UV filter will destroy several germs and bacteria in the home by zapping airborne bacteria when it is pushed through the ductwork. UV filters are attached directly to the ductwork as it pushes through the furnace filter and into the home. Bacteria and viruses are eliminated with UV lights installed directly into the ductwork, purifying the air that is pushed throughout the home. A UV light filter has been proven to destroy harmful contaminants and is one of the easiest methods to keep the air in your home safe.
