The Importance of Air Filtration

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.

An Air Filter Keeps Your Home Clean From Pollutants & Contaminants

An air filter helps keep the inside of your home free from the pollutants and contaminants that can get and stay inside and cause adverse health effects.

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.

There are two different types of air filters:

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 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.

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.
