Will Come to Your Rescue
Air filtration systems screen out dust, mold, bacteria, allergens and other pollutants from stale indoor air. The results? Cleaner, fresher air and healthier, happier people.
How Do Air Filters Work?
Air filters, also called air cleaners, are built directly into your heating and cooling system. When air passes through them, they trap those tiny particles that you don’t want entering your indoor air—and your lungs. The air filter installation usually takes place between the air return duct and the furnace or AC unit. As a result, air will flow through the air filter before it enters your home or business. Air filters use either active carbon, pleated paper, mesh or fiberglass to trap particles.
Common Air Filter Types
- HEPA filters: High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters are considered the highest efficiency filters available. They can trap 99.97 percent of particles to a size of 0.3 microns.
- Activated carbon: This type of filter is highly porous and great at trapping particles. It is often used as a pre-filter or secondary filter.
- Fiberglass: This option, one of the most common disposable filters, traps pollutants between layers of fiberglass. Some fiberglass filters use electrostatically charged ions to boost the number of particles they can catch.
- Washable filters: These are reusable and the most cost-effective.
Some of the items air cleaners filter out include: pollen, dust mites, mold, mildew, dirt, ash, pet dander, tobacco smoke, fungus, bacteria, fibers and more.
