Most heating and air conditioning units have some kind of air filtration, whether it’s a replaceable screen, a UV light or an electronic air filter. Basic air filters usually need to be replaced every few months, while more elaborate ones can usually be installed to work in conjunction with your HVAC system. Here in Fairview Park, filtration systems can be readily installed by qualified professionals. But that doesn’t explain why you’d want to install such a system in your home. How does air filtration make for happier living? A few answers can be found below.
Air filtration screens out dust and detritus in your home, with an eye on improving your indoor air quality. Standard filters typically screen out larger particles while missing smaller ones, though you can improve on that front by installing HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Absorption) filters, which strain much smaller particles than a standard filter. Electronic filters use electromagnetism to capture a wide array of dust particles, while UV lights kill bacteria and other biological organisms. Both can be installed in your existing HVAC system in many cases.
Regardless of the level of protection, however, the presence of a clean filter elevates the quality of your indoor air. That means a reduced risk of nose and throat irritation, fewer colds and flu bugs, and relief for family members suffering from allergies. In the latter case, a high-end system can help make your home a haven from allergens, allowing asthmatic or allergy-sensitive family members some respite. Even if you don’t have those concerns, air filters help you breathe more easily and can reduce the risk of viruses and other common infections.
