Help Reduce Air Pollution with an Air Filtration System

Modern homes and commercial properties are designed with tight seals between indoor and outdoor air. While this is beneficial for avoiding HVAC losses, there are unintentional drawbacks. Without access to clean outdoor air, your indoor air can become overloaded with microscopic pollutants on top of regular debris including dust and hair. Higher concentrations of airborne particles may worsen respiratory problems and even make you sick! For genuinely clean, healthy indoor air, these pollutants should be extracted as much as possible.

Would You Benefit from High-Efficiency Air Filtration?

EPA studies determined that pollutant levels indoors can be up to five times higher than outside, making an effective air filtration system an important tool when attempting to decrease contamination levels. Freedom Heating & Cooling offers top-of-the-line filtration technology effective at attracting and trapping particulates like:

  • Dust, hair and soot
  • Pet dander
  • Allergens such as pollen
  • Mold and mildew spores
  • Viruses and bacteria
  • Smoke and odor particles
  • Volatile Organic Compounds such as chemical cleaners

Nearby industries and potential health concerns affect which pollutants you’d benefit most from filtering out of your indoor air. For example, a person with severe allergies would make getting rid of pollen or animal dander the top priority. Our indoor air quality services in [siteinfo field=”msa”] are intended to help you figure out what particulate matter you’re struggling with.

HEPA Filters

Many air filtration systems use what’s known as a High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter. Bear in mind that numerous filters are manufactured similarly and sold as “HEPA-type” filters despite failing to achieve the same level of effectiveness. You should choose “True” or “Absolute” HEPA filters approved by air quality institutions.

With a thick network of extremely small fibers, HEPA filters capture airborne particles when they drift by. A few designs might use additional layers of filtration to keep the central fiber layer from clogging up with larger substances like hair and lint. One type, known as an activated carbon filter, uses highly absorbent carbon pores to trap particles.

One trade-off with HEPA filters is that the dense fibers can block airflow, which could force your HVAC system to work harder to maintain your desired temperatures. We will share tailored advice on whether you would benefit from HEPA-level filtration.
