Breathe Better with Whole-Home Air Filtration in Mobile

An air filter is a crucial HVAC piece for performance and comfort—but it’s regularly forgotten.

Indoor air quality can affect your family’s health, particularly if there’s someone in your Mobile household with allergies, asthma or other respiratory concerns. Dust, pollen, pet dander and mold can aggravate symptoms, as well as volatile organic compounds. VOCs are chemicals that are part of common household items like cleaning products, furniture and flooring.

Today’s structures are more energy efficient. But they are more airtight. This means the air inside your home can be more polluted than external air—often two to five times more, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

There are techniques you can use to take control over your home’s air quality:

  • Lower pollution sources
  • Ventilate with fresh air
  • Use better air filters

Filtration is one of the most efficient ways to clean the air that streams through your home. It traps particles as air runs through HVAC ductwork.

There are several kinds of air purification systems you can use to clean the air in your home. Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can recommend what’s best for you. And you can relax knowing all our Expert work is supported by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*

 

7 Signs You Need a Better Air Filtration System

There are several signs that your home could be improved by a filtration system.

  1. Someone in your household has asthma or allergies.
  2. Headaches, congestion or sneezing are regular when you’re home.
  3. Your home smells stuffy.
  4. You have pets that shed.
  5. Odors linger in your house.
  6. Someone in your home smokes.
  7. Your house is consistently dusty, despite regular cleaning.

Which Air Filtration System is Right for My Home?

A whole-home air purification system can eliminate pollution in your home’s air. And possibly bring relief to the asthma and allergy sufferers in your family.

Studies have found managing exposure to indoor allergens and tobacco smoke could prevent 65 percent of asthma cases among elementary school-age children. And controlling biological contaminants like dust mites can also decrease childhood asthma cases by 5560 percent.

HEPA Filters

The High Efficiency Particulate Air, or HEPA, filter, was designed to shield scientists from radiation as they developed an atomic bomb during World War II. Today these filters are frequently used in hospitals, science labs and even homes.

HEPA filters are rated to extract 99.97 to 99.99% of particles measuring 0.3 microns and bigger. This includes pollen, dirt and dust. A HEPA air cleaner with activated carbon filters can trap chemicals, odors and smoke.

These filters have a MERV rating of 1721, depending on the model. This rating indicates how well a filter can remove pollutants from the air.

Because of their high-efficiency filtration performance, HEPA filters are thick and can restrict airflow. It’s important to ask Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning to confirm your heating and cooling system can handle one.

Media Filters

Media air cleaners are much thicker than basic air filters. They’re often four to five times wider—or more. This barrier attaches closely against your HVAC equipment.

Because its active surface is usually around 10 inches, media filters are able to capture about 95 percent of particulates.

These filters last longer too, commonly between three to six months.

Electrostatic Filters

There are several different types of electronic filtering systems you can use in your home.

An electrostatic filter uses magnetically charged components to capture. These washable filters are 97 percent effective at removing tiny particles from your home’s air. Plus, they’re also 30 times more effective than regular filters.

An electronic air cleaner uses a high-voltage magnetic charge to trap particles.

Some can eliminate the majority of indoor air pollutants—particles, germs, bacteria, chemical odors and vapors—by up to 99.9 percent. And minimize ozone, a known lung irritant, produced elsewhere in your home.
