Indoor Air Quality Filtration

Indoor Air Quality – What Kind Of Filtration Do You Really Have? Why Does It Matter?

Pollutants enter the home through cooking, cleaning, smoking, pets, and just general moving around in your home. All of this could contribute to respiratory infections, allergies, and possible rodents. Improve the indoor air quality for better health in your home.

The humidity collected from the summer heat including the recent heavy rains could be leaving residue on your heating and cooling system. If any of your air ducts became wet or moldy they should be replaced immediately.

Do you see debris or particles coming in from your air vents? Have you had recent updates or renovations to your home? Air ducts just get dirty. The elderly, family members with asthma, and children are the most susceptible to reactions from poor indoor air quality. Air conditioner units take in air and breathe air out of the home. Dander, dust, and chemicals are circulated 5-7 times daily and could cause a build-up of contaminants in your duct work. Over time the inferior air quality could be contributed to infections of family members.

Why Is It Important To Change The Air Filter?

  • Keep Energy Costs Down: If your air filter is clogged it forces your air conditioning and heating system to work harder than necessary, thereby using more energy and then the dreaded high utility bill! You see, as the filter catches the dirt, it accumulates on the filter and air can’t pass through. Your heating and cooling system has to work even harder to heat or cool your home. Replacing your filters is a super easy way to try and keep your energy cost down.
  • Extend The Life Of Your Unit: Even the best unit will at some point break down and need to be repaired or replaced. If you keep the filters changed the unit won’t have to work as hard, thereby extending its life.
  • Healthy Indoor Air: Texas seems to be the capital of allergies. You name it and it can cause allergic systems and reactions! Keep those filters changed out regularly for the best indoor air quality.

Air Filters

It is recommended that your change your filters every month. Especially if you have the standard 1” pleated filters.

What Filter Should You Use?

We recommend any MERV filter. MERV stands for minimum efficiency reporting value. These numbers range from 1 to 16. The higher the number the better filtration the filter will provide.

Improving The Air Inside Your Home

Improving The Air Inside Your Home

As we move toward Spring and the warmer months, we want to improve and regulate our comfort by turning on the air conditioner. But before you do that, some preventative measures goes a long way, with the long, hot summer months ahead. With an a/c system check the distribution and duct systems should be checked as well. Indoor air quality is essential for your home. Many respiratory conditions and diseases are spread through poorly maintained a/c systems. The Environmental Protection Agency suggests that cleaning your air ducts professionally every year will reduce health problems, especially if there is visible mold or dust buildup.

How do these conditions occur? It starts with the proper or improper filtration of your central a/c system. With a visit to any hardware or big-box store, one doesn’t have to look far to see the numerous choices of air filters available. It is important to have clean and efficient equipment. But a filter with excessive pressure drop can actually harm the system. You may already be compromising air design if your system is noisy, or you have experienced leaks in your evaporator coil. When the installation of a clean filter changes the velocity noise levels there is a problem. An a/c professional can aid in helping you select the best filtration for your system.

Protect yourself from air contaminants and save energy!

  • Ventilate: Open your windows as much as possible to allow the fresh air to reduce contaminants.
  • Filtration: Change your unit’s air filters every month if using 1” throwaway filters.
  • Purification: Consider purifying equipment if indoor air quality cannot be maintained by filtration and ventilation.
  • Equipment: Consider investing in a new ac unit every 10-15 years to maximize efficiency. R-22 refrigerant is on its way out per Federal Clean Air Act.
  • Thermostat: turn the unit up when no one is home. Consider Wi-Fi controls with geofencing for automatic control.
  • Ventilate: Use your exhaust fan when cooking and showering to remove excessive humidity

Remember, it’s not the heat, but the humidity that leads to mold growth. High indoor humidity can lead to health and discomfort problems. Let Easco Air Conditioning and Heating be your solution to comfort!
