Air Filtration

An Air Filter Helps Keep Your Home Clean
From Pollutants & Contaminants

A furnace filter has two functions. It traps and helps restrict particulates from entering your furnace keeping the components cleaner. It also prevents these particulates from being recirculated throughout your home during heating and cooling cycles. This creates better air quality for us to breathe while inside. The higher the MERV rating, the better it reduces the small particles and can even reduce odours such as smoke.

It’s Important to Filter Your Air

In fact, the air inside a home is often more polluted than the air outside. While many heating and cooling systems utilize a basic air filter, they do so in order to protect the equipment, not the people inside the building who are using the equipment, and the average filter is only capable of removing 3 – 5% of the particles that pass through it.

Proper air cleaning is key because of the adverse health effects that the contaminants and pollutants in a home can cause for the people living there, such as respiratory conditions, bodily irritations, illness and disease. Some of these can be worse for individuals with allergies, asthma, hay fever and other breathing difficulties.
While most people think of pollution as an outdoor factor from things like litter and fuel, it can definitely happen indoors, too.

Two different types of air filters are electronic air filters and mechanical air filters.
An Electronic Air Filter

Removes airborne pollutants and contaminants such as cigarette smoke, pollen, bacteria, virus, mould and dust from your home. These can get trapped as a result of homes becoming more energy efficient, so while it’s good to continue moving towards more eco-friendly methods of living, it’s important to continuously clean a home with a product such as an electronic air filter in order to avoid the side effects that these pollutants and contaminants can cause. It’s also important to clean these filters as often as possible to ensure they continue working at maximum efficiency.

A Mechanical Air Filter

Removes dust and other irritating particles from your home. It works through the blower in your fan, which attracts these particles to the tightly sealed air cleaner, circulating clean air back through your furnace and into the rooms of your home. They are highly efficient, quiet, and require minimal maintenance, offering a simple solution for keeping your house clean.
