Homeowners often attempt to improve air quality by purchasing “high efficiency” filters from home centers and hardware stores. These fill fast and WILL OBSTRUCT THE AIRFLOW so critical to your comfort and to your system’s energy-efficiency. Worse, this obstructed air flow puts extra strain on fan motors and compressors leading to expensive repairs and pre-mature equipment failure.
NO CHANGE SHOULD EVER BE MADE TO YOUR HEATING COOLING SYSTEM without first consulting a contractor certified and equipped in air balancing diagnostics.
When it comes to clean air, here’s what we recommend:
Standard 1” blue fiberglass filters stop only the largest of particles. They’re designed to protect equipment but do little to reduce household dust and pollutants. White pleated electrostatic filters are somewhat more effective, but MUST BE CHECKED REGULARLY AND CHANGED WHEN DIRTY. That’s why we send monthly email reminders to all of our friends and customers.
The most cost-effective and energy-efficient way to clean your home’s air is with an ultra-efficient air filter incorporated into your heating and cooling system. We offer air quality solutions that effectively remove pollutants as small as 0.01 microns. Ours are engineered to have a minimal impact on airflow with filters that need changing only two to three times a year.
