Chances are, when you live somewhere that gets as sweltering hot in the summer as it does here, you use a central air conditioning unit. This provides a lot of relief from outdoor conditions, but can also be helping to negatively impact your indoor air quality. In fact, because houses are built so “tightly” to make our air conditioners more efficient, there often isn’t appropriate ventilation to allow for decent indoor air quality.
The thing is, when you use a whole-house air conditioner, the air blown out of your ducts stirs up pollutants and makes them airborne. You could also be experiencing duct leaks that make this problem even worse, allowing pollutants to negatively impact the ductwork itself. The good news is, there’s an answer to this problem: a whole-house high efficiency air filtration system.
What is Whole-House Air Filtration and Why is it Useful?
There are portable air purifiers on the market today that can certainly be used to treat the air within your home. However, portable units can only do so much, plus you are going to constantly be cleaning chambers or replacing filters. A better option is a whole-house high efficiency air filtration system.
Whole-house air filtration can be incorporated directly into your cooling system. Or if you prefer, you can use an air purifier that functions independently of your HVAC system. No matter the nature of your filtration system, going with the whole-house option means that you’ll be able to enjoy cleaner air with greater convenience. There’s no need to invest in multiple units to achieve good indoor air quality.
It is important to remember that in order to get the most from your air filtration system; you’ll want to have it professionally installed. Our trained indoor air quality specialists will help you determine which system(s) is best for your home, and ensure that it works properly.
