Air Filtration Systems in Minneapolis, MN by Vogt Heating, Air Conditioning and Plumbing
If you or one of your family members suffers from asthma, severe allergies, or an immune system disorder, you do everything you can to alleviate the symptoms. However, this is difficult to do when even the air in your home seems to be working against you. Poor air quality is not limited to the outdoors. In fact, indoor air quality tends to be worse than the outside air in most cases. The average person spends at least 90% of the time indoors, but you can potentially improve your health with the installation of a whole-home air filtration system.
Today’s whole-house air filtration systems are more effective than ever, but you’ll need a professional to install yours if you want to ensure proper performance, the right fit, and quality filtration. Call Vogt Heating, Air Conditioning and Plumbing today to find out which air filter is the best choice for your home and to schedule installation. We will make sure that your new system is a great fit for your home.
Vogt Heating, Air Conditioning and Plumbing provides air filtration systems and services near Minneapolis, MN and the surrounding areas.
Standard Air Filters vs. Whole–Home Air Filtration Systems
Every central AC system, heat pump, or furnace installed today is equipped with an air filter that serves two major functions: to protect the air conditioning system from damage and to filter out contaminants that could be harmful to your health. The most basic of AC filters is effective enough to eliminate many small allergens, including dust mites and pollen, but may miss smaller particles and bioaerosols (living contaminants that move through the air, like bacteria).
Air Filter Efficiency
Air filters are rated using the MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value) scale. Standard home air filters often have a MERV of anywhere from about one to four, but more effective filters are closer to a MERV of 16. The most effective home filtration systems use HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filters, and these can remove over 99% of particles and bioaerosols .03 microns in size or larger. Many systems also have additional features, including electronic components. Be careful, however, because a larger filter like this may affect the performance of your air conditioner, which is why you should always have a professional install one.
