Experienced Air Filter and Air Purifier Team
With an increase in awareness of indoor air pollution and the health concerns it can cause, many homeowners are looking for ways to improve the indoor air quality (IAQ) in their homes. To assist in raising your residential air quality, Save Home Heat Company provides trusted, expert central air filter and air purifier advice and product installation for homeowners in Arvada, CO, and surrounding communities, all in an informative, low-pressure manner. Air pollution is not just an outdoor issue. In fact, many homes contain a higher concentration of airborne contaminants and allergens than what lies outside the doors. As code for new home construction continues to reduce the allowable air leakage limits to increase energy efficiency, the issue still grows.
High Quality Arvada Indoor Air Purification
If you are looking for a way to reliably eliminate bacteria and disease-spreading viruses in the air and on surfaces in your home, a high-quality central air purifier installed on your forced air heating and cooling system is a great way to go. The air purification system that our team recommends is highly effective against a variety of airborne and surface viruses and germs, as well as helping to reduce airborne dust, mold, pollen, pet dander, and odors. In addition, our product of choice can neutralize a broad range of potential gases known as volatile organic compounds, better known as VOCs.
VOCs are chemicals that are emitted in gas form from a wide variety of household products such as spray cleaners, air fresheners and disinfectants, degreasing products, printer toner, cosmetics, cigarettes, wax, adhesives, paints and wood preservatives, to name just a few of many sources. VOCs could be impacting the quality of the air you breath at home, triggering or causing respiratory issues or other ailments. The right central air purifier will help turn the tide and put your home on the road to healthier indoor air.
The state-of-the-art central air purifiers that our team provides are installed into the ducting system by your furnace, and work in tandem with your furnace filter. Using ultraviolet light and a specially designed catalyst material, the air purifiers that our team recommends will thoroughly cleanse your indoor air of many common airborne contaminants, while treating all of the air in your home, not just the air passing thru your furnace and ducting system.
High Quality Central Air Purifiers can treat:
- Airborne and surface bacteria and viruses
- Dust, pollen, and pet dander
- A wide range of chemicals & volatile organic compounds
- Smoke and other household odors
High Performance Air Filters for Arvada
Another way to improve the IAQ in your Arvada home is to upgrade your existing furnace filter with a higher-performing filter or some other type of air cleaning product. Compared to standard 1″ thick furnace filter, a high-efficiency media filter or air cleaner will remove a wider variety of airborne allergens from the air you breathe at home and will address smaller particle sizes of contaminants. Some of these filters can even help reduce a variety of common mold, viruses, and bacteria.
Our team recommends high-performance media air filters as a great choice for many Denver-Boulder area homes. They do an excellent job treating the airborne contaminants mentioned above, and some models also feature carbon-infused filter media to assist in odor reduction. Depending on the specifics of the home and the existing system, we often recommend a media filter with an efficiency rating somewhere in the MERV11 to MERV16 range; the higher the number, the more efficient the filter. Another attractive feature of media air cleaners is that they typically require replacement only once every 6 to 12 months.
Air Filter Efficiency and Airflow
Well worth noting is the fact that the most efficient furnace filter is not always the best choice for every home. Some ‘high efficiency’ filters may be too restrictive to airflow to be a good fit for your system. In some cases, these filters could create issues that could adversely affect air delivery to rooms at the far ends of your ducting system. They could even adversely affect your furnace or central air conditioner’s ability to do its job efficiently and properly, as well as shorten system life. When upgrading your existing furnace filter, care should be taken to choose a product that’s a good match for your furnace and the ducting system, one that allows for optimum airflow throughout your home. That’s where expert advice from our team at Save Home Heat Company can make all the difference!

A quick word on portable air filters and purifiers: While there are some good products out there, their effectiveness is limited to areas such as a single room, and routine maintenance is often more than many homeowners anticipate. They can also be a bit louder than you might prefer. Save Home Heat Company’s offering are limited to quality air treatment products that can treat the entire home.
Humidification, Air Purification, and Air Purification: An Excellent IAQ Combination!
For the ultimate IAQ package to help you achieve the cleanest, healthiest indoor air that your home comfort system can provide, we recommend the combination of a high-quality central air purifier and a high-performance furnace filter. In many cases, with our dry Colorado climate, it also makes good sense to include a quality central humidifier in the mix.
