Air Purification for Lafayette
At Save Home Heat Company, we install state-of-the-art central air purification systems that will give your home a sturdy line of defense against a wide variety of indoor air contaminants. The quality air purifiers that we our team recommends will reduce airborne and surface bacteria and viruses, as well as mold, pollen, dust, pet dander, and smoke. These products are also highly effective in neutralizing volatile organic compounds (VOCs), a very broad range of indoor pollutants that are produced from many common household products.
VOCs are chemicals and other compounds that are released in gaseous form in our homes from sources such as gas cooking, air fresheners and sanitizers, degreasing products, paint, glue, wood preservatives, wax, cosmetics, cigarettes, and even home furnishings and flooring. Alone or in combination, VOCs could trigger or lead to a variety of respiratory or other ailments. The right central air purification system will clean up many of these indoor air pollution problems and start your home on the road to much healthier air.
Central air purifiers are typically installed in the ducting located by the furnace or air handler, and operate whenever the furnace fan is running. The air purifier that our team recommends treats not only the air passing thru the ducting, but all of the air in your home. In addition to treating the air in your home, they also help your furnace filter do a better job.
Air Purifiers treat:
- Airborne and surface bacteria and viruses
- Mold spores
- Dust, pollen, and pet dander
- A wide range of chemicals & volatile organic compounds
- Smoke and other household odors and allergens
Advanced Air Filters for Lafayette Homes
In addition to high-quality central air purifiers, the right choice of a high-efficiency furnace filter can further add to the goal of achieving a cleaner, healthier indoor air. There are a variety of enhanced air filtration products available to take the place of the standard 1″ filters that are normally installed with a new furnace. In addition to removing smaller particle sizes of dust, these filters can significantly reduce airborne pollen, pet dander and mold, and are even effective at reducing common bacteria and viruses that may be circulating in the air around your home.
Our team often recommends installing high-performance media air filters, or air cleaners, on residential furnace systems that can properly accommodate these products. Depending on the specifics of the system we are inspecting, we often install media filters with efficiency ratings in the MERV11 to MERV16 range, the higher the number the more efficient the filter. These are a big upgrade in performance, compared to standard 1″ thick filters, and some models even feature activated carbon to assist in odor control. One of the nicest things about media air cleaners is that they typically require replacement once every 6 to 12 months. Talk about convenience!
Air Filter Efficiency and Airflow
A quick note about efficiency ratings and system performance: The most efficient furnace filter is not always the best product for every forced-air heating and cooling system. In many cases, the ducting system may not be able to handle the additional resistance to airflow that some ‘super ultra allergen’ filters bring to the mix. The result could end up being poor air delivery to the upstairs or other registers located at ‘the end of the line,’ along with other potential issues which could include decreased overall performance and efficiency, parts failures and shortened equipment lifespan. It’s important to obtain expert advice when considering upgrading your furnace filter, to make sure you’re getting the right fit for your home, as well as your personal needs. In the Denver-Boulder area, you can trust the experience of Save Home Heat Company to help you avoid this potential pitfall before it can rear its ugly head.
High Efficiency Media Furnace Filters:
- Reduce airborne dust, pollen, pet dander, and other allergens
- Help remove common viruses, bacteria, and mold from your indoor air
- Help your furnace and AC system operate at optimum efficiency
- Provide excellent protection for the indoor cooling coil on central AC systems
- Work great in combination with a high quality air purifier and a central humidifier
- Require less frequent replacing and are much more effective than 1” furnace filters
- Are a great way to improve your indoor air quality and quality of life at home!
Although some homeowners may be tempted to purchase portable air filters and purifiers, our team recommends only central air filters and air purifiers, for a variety of reasons. While some portable units do a reasonable job of filtering air, their coverage areas are fairly limited, and they typically require pretty regular maintenance in order to keep performing well. In addition, noise levels from most of these units can be bothersome. If you want to achieve a cleaner, healthier air throughout your home, and you have a central forced-air home comfort system, then it makes good sense to consider whole-home IAQ solutions like the ones presented here.
There are other air filtration options available for central forced-air systems, among them HEPA filters, electronic air cleaners, and combination units that make use of UV technology. We’d be glad to discuss any of these products with you, and provide free install quotes for any that you’re interested in.
Air Filtration, Purification, and Humidification for the Ultimate IAQ Coverage
For the ultimate indoor air quality system, we recommend that you consider a quality central air purifier in combination with a high-performance furnace filter. In our dry Colorado climate, a quality central humidifier often makes sense to consider, as well, completing the total IAQ package.
