Air Filters

One of the main objectives of your heating and air conditioning (HVAC) system is to help maintain indoor air quality through adequate filtration and ventilation. Proper air filtration and care for your HVAC system will result in improved efficiency and indoor air quality. This section will focus on helping you select the air filter that is suitable for your heating and air conditioning system, and for the health of your family.

Improve Your Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

You can begin to improve the air quality in your home instantly simply by changing or upgrading your air filter. There are different factors to consider when deciding which air filter to buy. The type of air filter you need depends on the types of pollutants in your home and the sensitivity of your family members to those contaminants. Some air filters need to be changed or cleaned monthly while others last several months. If you have pets, someone in your home smokes, or live in a heavily polluted area you should change your filter more often.

Service Your HVAC System and Air Filter

Your central air system is designed to provide you with cold air during the summer and heat during the winter. If your HVAC system is not serviced regularly it can also work to spread allergens, pollutants, and dirt throughout your home. These contaminants have adverse effects on the health of your family ranging from watery eyes and constant sneezing to headaches and fatigue, and they can also worsen allergies & asthma.

The first step is to maintain your HVAC equipment. Routinely replacing your HVAC filter can alleviate most of these problems. You must also ensure your ducts are free of defects like leaks and tears. If you’re considering improving the quality of your air, a great place to start is by having your system evaluated by a knowledgeable professional.
