Air filters may be one of the simplest ways in which you can remove airborne pollutants from the air that you breathe, but they are also one of the most effective. In order to ensure that you purchase the right one for your home, heating and cooling system, and the particular problems you are facing, you must work with a professional. The Lake City, FL air filter experts on the Touchstone Heating & Air Inc team are here to ensure that you get the best air filter for your situation.
First of all, you must be sure that the efficiency of you air filter is appropriate for your environment. Air filter efficiency is represented by a MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value). The higher the MERV, the more efficient the air filter will be at capturing airborne pollutants. This is not to suggest, however, that you should go out and purchase the air filter with the highest MERV you can find.
It is possible to purchase an air filter with a MERV far greater than your heating and air conditioning system can handle. If you make this mistake then the filter will create too much airflow resistance and the efficiency and effectiveness of your heating and air conditioning system will suffer. Of course, it is also possible to choose an air filter with a MERV that is too low. The air filter factory installed in your HVAC system, for instance, is not designed to improve indoor air quality. Rather, its primary function is to protect the components of your HVAC system from dirt, dander, and other pollutants. If these pollutants are severe enough to affect indoor air quality in your home then you will need an additional air filter installation, and one with a higher MERV.
If you are looking for a more technological approach to improving indoor air quality in your home, you may want to consider the installation of an air purifier in your home. Devices such as electronic air cleaners draw pollutants into an ionization chamber, where they are given an electrical charge. The charged pollutants are then trapped on a collector plate, or simply adhere to the walls and surfaces in your home, thereby removing them from circulation. To learn more about your air purifier options, call the Lake City, FL air purifier installation professionals at Touchstone Heating & Air Inc.
