The air filter in your furnace or air conditioner has a profound impact on your living environment. Regular filter maintenance is essential to maintaining proper indoor air quality (IAQ). Frequent filter changes can also improve energy efficiency and extend the life of mechanical systems.
Air filters capture small particles of dust, pollen and other contaminants that ride on currents in the air stream. A well maintained filter, one that is regularly changed or cleaned, removes debris that might otherwise end up in your lungs. Some filters can clean more than 99 percent of airborne particulates. These high efficiency filters are important for the elderly, people suffering from asthma or allergies and others with a compromised immune system.
In order to maintain clean air in your home or building, air filters must efficiently remove bacteria, pollens, insects, soot, dust and dirt. Duct cleaning and filtration are linked together to achieve a complete indoor air quality solution.
Upgrading your filtration alone leaves existing contaminants in the duct system that can cause indoor air quality problems. Before upgrading to a better quality air filter, it is essential to ensure that the entire mechanical system is clean.
