How Does an Air Filtration System Work?

If you use a forced air heating and/or cooling system in your home, an air filtration system simply entails the installation of a set of air filters into that existing system. The design and layout of these air filters may vary, but generally air filters are installed near the air handler of an HVAC system, where they can treat all of the air passing through the system. The air filters in a designated air filtration system are more efficient than those that come standard in an air conditioning or heating system, and are designed to actively boost the quality of the air throughout the house, not simply to protect the HVAC equipment itself. Contact us if you are interested in learning more about the air filtration systems available for installation in your home.

Choosing the Right Air Filters

As mentioned above, the air filters in an air filtration system must be more efficient than the standard air filter that serves to keep dust and dirt out of your HVAC system and its sensitive components. What you may fail to realize, though, is that you can actually have too efficient an air filter in place. If your air filtration system is too efficient, with too high a MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value) rating, then you can actually wind up putting a lot of unnecessary strain your HVAC system by creating too much airflow resistance. When we install and service your air filters, of course, you can count on having the right products for your needs in place.
