Air Filtration

dirty filter that needs to be replaced

Do you suffer from allergies and feel ill even when you’re indoors? Does you or someone you love have asthma and struggle to breathe regularly? Maybe you don’t have any of these conditions, but you’re concerned about the air quality inside your house. No matter your concern, we can help get your air as clean as you want to get it.

Types of Air Filters

There are many types of air filters that you could use in your home. The type that’s right for you will depend on your home’s systems, the level of filtration you need or desire, and your budget for the project. Our environmental experts will help you figure out exactly what type of filter or filtration system would be right for you.

We offer everything from standard air filters that are placed in your air return grill, electrostatic filters, electronic air filters, and HEPA filtration systems. The more filtration you need, that more efficient your system will need to be. Sometimes, this involves installing a new system. Other times, you just need a different filter.

Air filters all come with a MERV rating, somewhere on a scale from 1 to 16. MERV stands for “Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value.” The higher the rating, the more particles the filter will pick up as your air passes through it.

If you have allergies or asthma, you will want to use the highest efficiency filter that your system can handle. This may take some trial and error. Sometimes, the only way to know if a filter will work for your system is to install it and listen. If you hear a high pitched whistling sound, you’ll know that your filter has too high of a rating for your system. You may also want to see if your system’s manufacturer has any recommendations.

If you don’t have allergies and your system can handle it, we recommend a filter with a rating between 4 and 6. This provides much cleaner air without running the risk of overtaxing your system.

Other Filtration Systems

Sometimes, installing a new air filter doesn’t go far enough towards cleaning the air in your home. If you are particularly sensitive to certain allergens or you still have frequent asthma attacks, it may be time to install a separate air filtration system.

These can be complex and require a significant investment of your time and money, but they may be the only way to help you breathe better. We will help you choose the system that is most likely to solve your air problems, get it installed, and make sure it is working for you before we leave.
