Solve Indoor Air Quality and Allergy Issues with HEPA Filters
Did you know that the air inside your home can contain more pollutants than the air outside your home? As strange as it might sound, it’s the truth. Different types of pollutants and contaminants can negatively impact your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ). Some of these pesky pollutants include mold spores, animal dander, cleaning solutions and pollen. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) includes indoor air pollution in their top 5 list of environment-related health risks.
If you suffer from indoor allergies or are otherwise concerned with your IAQ, consider filtering your home’s air. Scientific evidence shows that properly filtering your home’s air can have a positive impact on your home’s air quality. Your friends at Air Force Heating and Air recommends using a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter to clean your home’s air. These high-quality filters use a variety of mechanisms to ensure both large and microscopic particles don’t enter your home.
HEPA Filters and Your HVAC
- We recommend you contact the Air Force Heating and Air team to learn more about the HEPA filters we recommend. HEPA air filters have three main components that must be properly balanced. If they aren’t, they may not allow air to fully flow through them, which can decrease their efficacy. We can help you make sure you pick a good product.
- When you purchase a HEPA filter, it’s also important to make sure it’s the right size. If it isn’t compatible with your HVAC system, it won’t properly filter the air.
- Many homeowners also don’t realize the role that ductwork plays in IAQ. If your ductwork is leaking somewhere, it can allow unfiltered air to enter your home. In addition, your HVAC system’s air filter slot can also let unfiltered air in if it isn’t properly sealed. If you’re serious about improving your home’s IAQ, have Air Force Heating and Air assess your ducts and air filter slot.
