Are you no longer satisfied with the quality of air in your home? Do you suffer from asthma and are looking for some way to clear up airborne contaminants in your home? Indoor air quality is a serious issue, and one that warrants your attention, particularly if you have a forced-air distribution system that uses ducts to circulate air throughout your home. Such systems are prone to the accumulation of dust, pollen, dander, and other debris that become airborne as soon as your cooled or heated air comes through. While your HVAC system is equipped with an air filter, this is primarily utilized for capturing debris before it can reach sensitive system components and does not have the same capture ability as a stand-alone whole-house air filtration device. Call Bob’s Heating & Air Conditioning today for quality air filtration services in Tacoma, WA, from the installation of a new system to repair and maintenance.
A whole-house air filtration device integrates directly into your HVAC system near your air handler. You can work with an HVAC professional to find a filter with the correct MERV value. This acronym, which stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value is a numeric scale that determines the effectiveness of the particle capture on the physical medium. Having a MERV that is too high can lead to problems with energy efficiency as your conditioned air may have trouble getting through.
There are some of the benefits of having a professionally installed air filter in your home. Depending on whether you have a respiratory condition, allergen, or a particularly noxious contaminant, the degree of improved comfort will vary considerably. But because our homes are so tightly shut during the summer and winter months, as we try to keep cold and hot air out and moderate temperature inside, our indoor air quality suffers. A filtration device captures particles as they pass through your HVAC system, whose blower motor is constantly recycling the air throughout the home.
