Breathe Better with Whole-Home Air Filtration in Miami

An air filter is an essential HVAC component for effectiveness and comfort—but it’s frequently forgotten.

Indoor air quality can affect your family’s health, particularly if there’s someone in your Miami household with allergies, asthma or other respiratory issues. Dust, pollen, pet dander and mold can aggravate symptoms, as well as volatile organic compounds. VOCs are chemicals located in common 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 worse than outdoors—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:

  • Limit pollution sources
  • Ventilate with fresh air
  • Use improved air filters

Filtration is one of the most efficient techniques to clean the air that streams through your home. It catches particles as air moves through HVAC ductwork.

There are several kinds of air purification systems you can add to clean the air in your home. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can advise you on what’s ideal 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 a few signs that your home could be improved by a filtration system.

  1. Someone in your family has asthma or allergies.
  2. Headaches, congestion or sneezing are frequent when you’re home.
  3. Your home smells musty.
  4. You have pets that shed.
  5. Odors stick around in your house.
  6. Someone in your household smokes.
  7. Your house is always dusty, despite weekly cleaning.

Which Air Filtration System is Right for My Home?

A whole-home air purification system can handle pollution in your home’s air. And possibly provide relief to the asthma and allergy sufferers in your household.

Studies have found managing exposure to indoor allergens and tobacco smoke could counter 65 percent of asthma cases among elementary school-age children. And restricting 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 keep scientists safe from radiation as they built an atomic bomb during World War II. Today these filters are regularly used in hospitals, science labs and even homes.

HEPA filters are rated to take out 99.97 to 99.99% of particles measuring 0.3 microns and greater. 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 demonstrates how successfully a filter can clear pollutants from the air.

Because of their high-efficiency filtration capabilities, HEPA filters are deep and can restrict airflow. It’s important to check with Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning to confirm your heating and cooling system can handle one.

Media Filters

Media air cleaners are sturdier than regular air filters. They’re often four to five times wider—or more. This barrier attaches tightly against your HVAC equipment.

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

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

Electrostatic Filters

There are a couple 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 extracting tiny particles from your home’s air. Plus, they’re also 30 times more effective than everyday filters.

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

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