Breathe Better with Whole-Home Air Filtration in Orlando

An air filter is an essential HVAC part for performance and comfort—but it’s frequently ignored.

Indoor air quality can influence your family’s health, particularly if there’s someone in your Orlando household with allergies, asthma or other respiratory issues. Dust, pollen, pet dander and mold can worsen symptoms, as well as volatile organic compounds. VOCs are chemicals located in everyday household items including cleaning products, furniture and flooring.

Today’s homes 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 methods you can use to take the reins of your home’s air quality:

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

Filtration is one of the best ways to clean the air that flows through your home. It catches particles as air moves through HVAC ductwork.

There are several types of air purification systems you can install to clean the air in your home. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can recommend what’s right for you. And you can breathe comfortably knowing all our Expert work is upheld by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*

 

7 Signs You Need a Better Air Filtration System

There are several signals that your home could benefit from a filtration system.

  1. Someone in your family has asthma or allergies.
  2. Headaches, congestion or sneezing are regular when you’re home.
  3. Your home smells stale.
  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 weekly 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 offer relief to the asthma and allergy sufferers in your household.

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

HEPA Filters

The High Efficiency Particulate Air, or HEPA, filter, was created to protect scientists from radiation as they worked on an atomic bomb during World War II. Today these filters are often 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 catch chemicals, odors and smoke.

These filters have a MERV rating of 1721, depending on the brand. This rating indicates how effectively a filter can clear pollutants from the air.

Because of their high-efficiency filtration capabilities, HEPA filters are thick and can limit airflow. It’s important to ask Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning to make sure your heating and cooling system can work with one.

Media Filters

Media air cleaners are sturdier than basic air filters. They’re often four to five times wider—or more. This barrier mounts snugly against your HVAC unit.

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

These filters stay fresher longer too, usually between three to six months.

Electrostatic Filters

There are a couple of electronic filtering systems you can add in your home.

An electrostatic filter uses magnetically charged substance to attract. 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, created elsewhere in your home.
