Lakewood Whole-House Air Purification Systems
A state-of-the-art central air purifier can make a big difference in the quality of the air you breathe in your home, helping to improve your health and overall quality of life. The air purifiers that Save Home Heat Company installs can not only help reduce dust, pollen, and pet dander drifting around your home, they can significantly reduce surface and airborne viruses, bacteria, and mold, as well as neutralize a broad range of volatile organic chemical compounds often present in homes, chemicals better known as VOCs.
VOCs are potentially harmful chemicals that are released in gas form from a wide variety of household products such as gas cooking, degreasing products, spray cleaners and disinfectants, air fresheners, wood preservatives, wax, adhesives, printer toner, cosmetics, cigarettes (smoke), and even building materials and furnishings, to name just a few sources. In high enough levels, VOCs can negatively impact your health. In order to address these indoor pollutants and allergens, a quality air purifier for your entire home can be a big part of the solution. A central air purifier can also help improve the performance of your furnace filter.
Central air purifiers are installed in the ducting system located by your furnace or air handler. Operating when the furnace is blowing air, the products that our team installs treat all of the air in your home, not just air circulating thru the ducting. The right product, professionally installed, will make a significant difference in the cleanliness and quality of the air in your home, creating a healthier indoor environment. In the Denver-Boulder area, your go-to contractor for home air purification is our team at Save Home Heat Company.
Air Purifiers treat:
- Airborne and surface bacteria and viruses
- Mold spores

High Quality Air Filters For Lakewood Homes
Another big step in improving your home’s indoor air quality involves looking closely at the filter in your furnace. In most cases, the existing filter is a basic 1″ thick filter that provides minimal filtration of dust and other airborne particles. In homes with a forced-air furnace or air handler, it makes good sense to consider upgrading the furnace filter to a more efficient product. High performance or high-efficiency furnace filters come in a variety of forms, but virtually all of them can remove smaller dust particles, along with significantly reducing airborne pollen, pet dander, mold, and even some common viruses and bacteria.
Our team frequently recommends upgrading to a high-performance media air filter, or air cleaner, for any system that can properly accommodate one. The benefits provided by a quality media air cleaner include capturing smaller size dust particles and significantly reducing the airborne pollutants and allergens mentioned above. Depending on the specific situation, we often install media filters with efficiency ratings in the MERV11 to MERV16 range, the higher the number the more efficient the filter. Some of these filters offer activated carbon impregnated material, but one of the nicest features of these filters is that they typically need to be replaced only once every 6 to 12 months. A far cry from 1″ filters that get loaded with dust in maybe two or three months, and then start working against you if you forget to replace them.
A Discussion Around Air Filter Efficiency and Airflow
An important word of caution about some high-efficiency filters that are available: The most efficient filter is not always the best choice for every system. Some ‘ultra super allergen’ filters, and other high-efficiency options, maybe too restrictive to airflow for some ducting systems. In some cases, the result could be poor heating and cooling performance and reduced efficiency, poor airflow to upper levels of the home and registers located at the ‘far end of the system,’ as well as potentially damaging your equipment or shortening their lifespan. This is where the advice of an experienced team can make all the difference to your comfort and health levels in your home. In the Denver-Boulder metro area, Save Home Heat Company is your go-to source for friendly, expert, low-pressure advice on the furnace filter that makes the most sense for your needs, and is the right fit for your system.
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!
As far as portable units are concerned, our main issue is that coverage area is limited, noise levels are often higher than preferred, and routine maintenance can get away from you if you get a little complacent or forget to make note. If you desire a whole-home solution and you’ve got a forced-air furnace or air handler serving your home, then it makes sense to look closer at whole-house air purifiers and upgraded furnace filters.
There are also other furnace filter products available, such as HEPA filters, electronic air cleaners, and hybrid products that feature UV treatment technology. We’d be glad to discuss these options with you and provide free install quotes on any product you’re interested in.
A Combination Approach to Air Filtration, Purification, and Humidity Control
For the ultimate indoor air quality system, we recommend that you consider a combination of a high-quality central air purifier with a high-performance furnace. In many cases, considering our dry Colorado climate, it also makes sense to consider a quality central humidifier, completing the package to provide you with the healthiest, cleanest indoor that your home comfort system can achieve.
