We here in the Sandy UT and surrounding areas can breathe pretty nasty air. Everything from car pollution to allergens and dust can clog up your sinuses, not to mention your HVAC system. We recommend considering an advanced air filtration system for your home and business. To help, we will share 3 air filtration benefits in this article.
1. To Removing Indoor Allergens
Due to a lack of circulation, indoor air can become more polluted than outdoor air. The EPA has stated that indoor air can be anywhere from two to five times more polluted than outdoor air. Your heating and cooling system is designed to use recirculated air. Therefore it is important that the air be as clean as possible. However, dirty air can get in your home or business in these scenarios:
- When a door or window is opened.
- If the HVAC filter or filters are not changed regularly.
- When cigarettes, cigars, vape machines, or similar are smoked indoors.
- If there is a fireplace or wood burning stove in the building.
- When regular housekeeping is neglected and dust, hair, etc is accumulated.
- If the home has one or more pets.
The good news is that an air filtration system can help remove these and other indoor pollutants and allergens to clean the air.
2. Clean the Whole Property
Many manufacturers make smaller units designed to clean a single room or area. For example, you may have a closet with constant odors. A plugin unit may work for those smaller spaces that need clean air. However, a whole home or business system is beneficial to purify the entire building. They are designed to clean the air based on the square feet of the interior of the building. In addition, they also keep contaminants from getting into the HVAC system.
3. Better Heating and Cooling Performance
Standard air filters are designed to keep contaminants from entering the HVAC system. This is why it is so important to change them on a regular basis. These contaminants can cause your system to work harder and possibly added strain which in turn could lead to maintenance issues. Not only will your air not be clean, but your system will now be running less efficiently. An air filtration system adds an extra layer of protection to your HVAC. It allows the system to perform better, and as a result, break down less.
