Air purifiers remove pollutants and keep your home’s air clean
Using an air filter in your heating and cooling system can help your health in later years. We breathe in airborne pollutants unknowingly everyday. Unfortunately, we don’t know yet the long term effects of airborne pollutants on our health. In the meantime, it’s better safe than sorry! Potentially dangerous irritants can be eliminated from your air by ensuring clean and functioning air filters are being used in your heating and cooling system. Air filters are particularly useful in humid climates. Warmth and moisture accumulating causes the growth of mold and fungus. Air filters prevent these undetectable spores from being spread throughout your home. They trap these irritants to keep you and your family breathing in healthy conditioned air.
Air Filter Replacement
Air filter replacement and cleaning are the quickest and lowest cost maintenance you can provide for your heating and cooling system. Often air purifiers go months without being replaced or cleaned because people easily forget about them. Controlled Aire will assist you in air filter replacement or cleaning. Schedule regular cleanings with us and eliminate your worries about w the last time you changed your air filter. Replacing or cleaning a dirty air filter is extremely important. If an air filter is dirty, that means that the air you are breathing is also unclean. Dirty air filters can cause damage to your heating and cooling system by restricting air flow and freezing evaporator coils. Depending on the type of air purifier you have, it will vary on how often it needs to be cleaned or replaced. Fiberglass filters need maintenance every 30 days while pleated filters are every 90 days. Whatever type of filter is in your home, we will create a maintenance plan that keeps your filters and air clean.
Which Air Purifier is best for you?
The American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers, ASHRAE, created the industry standard for air filter ratings known as MERV. Air filter rating systems determine what levels of filtration your home is receiving. Controlled Aire will work with you to determine the level of filtration that is right for you and your home. Not all heating and cooling systems run the same, which is why it was important to determine which filter best fits your needs. There is no standard air filter size, but we carry a wide line of products that is customizable to your heating and cooling system.
Hepa filters are a popular choice for many homes. They filter the air passing through them at a very fine scale and reach The US Department of Energy‘s standards. Hepa filters trap 99.97 percent of all particles that are larger than 0.2 microns. Bacteria, spores, and mold are all in the size range of 0.3 microns to 60 microns and are easily trapped in a Hepa filter. This advanced system removes all contaminants on a microscopic level allowing you to relax and breathe easy.
