Effective Air Purification in Littleton
As indoor air quality (IAQ) concerns continue to grow in importance, a reliable way to eliminate bacteria and disease-spreading viruses is essential to true home comfort. Our experienced air quality team installs high quality, central whole-home air purifiers to address this need. The system that our team recommends helps to reduce airborne dust, pet dander, mold, and pollen, and can even treat a variety of airborne and surface bacteria and viruses. In addition, our preferred central air purifiers can neutralize potentially harmful volatile organic compounds, also known as VOCs.
VOCs are chemicals that are released in gaseous form in our home, and which have a wide variety of sources, including gas home cooking, air fresheners, spray cleaners and disinfectants, degreasing products, solvents, adhesives, wood preservatives, paints, cigarettes, wax, cosmetics, and even home furnishings, to name just a few examples. In high enough levels, or in combination, VOCs can aggravate respiratory conditions or cause other health issues. The right central air purifier will neutralize many VOCs and start your home on the road to healthier indoor air.
Central air purifiers are typically installed in the ducting by the furnace or air handler. The product that our team recommends will treat all of the air in your home, not just air circulating through your furnace and ducting system, for true whole-home air purification. It can even enhance the performance of your existing furnace filter. In the Denver-Boulder area, Save Home Heat Company is the trusted HVAC contractor that can assist you in finding the right air purifier for your home.
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
High Quality Air Filters For Littleton Homes
For homes with a central ducting system, in addition to a high-quality central air purifier, an upgraded furnace filter is another key component to improving the quality of your home’s indoor air. By installing a high-performance air filter in place of the standard 1″ filter that comes with most furnaces, you can remove smaller dust particles, as well as significantly reduce airborne pollen, mold, and other allergens. Upgraded furnace filters can even help reduce common viruses and bacteria.
Our comfort team often recommends upgrading to a high-performance media air filter, or air cleaner, whenever the existing system can accommodate this type of filter. With excellent efficiency ratings ranging from MERV11 to MERV16 – the higher the number, the more efficient the filter – we can find the best fit for your needs and your system while providing an air cleaner that far outperforms the existing furnace filter. Some media air cleaners feature activated carbon for assistance in reducing odors, but by far one of their nicest features is that most media filters need to be replaced only once every 6 to 12 months. Eliminate the filter that’s fully loaded with dust after three months and then putting your health and your system at risk.
Understanding Air Filter Efficiency and Airflow
If you’re tempted to simply purchase the most efficient furnace filter available, be forewarned: The most efficient filter option may not be the best fit for your home. Many ‘ultra super allergen’ filters can be too restrictive to airflow to be a good fit for your system. An overly restrictive (or plugged) furnace filter can potentially do as much, if not more, harm as good. An excessively restrictive air filter can reduce airflow to the upper levels of your home and to registers at ‘the end of the line’ on all levels. It can reduce heating and cooling performance and efficiency, and potentially lead to parts failures, as well as shorten the lifespan of your HVAC equipment. This is where the advice of an experienced HVAC contractor can make all the difference.

- 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!
While some homeowners may opt to use portable air quality products, we do not sell these devices due to several concerns. Portable air treatment products are typically limited in the area they can cover, requiring the use of multiple units to try and address an entire home. They also have a tendency to be a bit loud in the areas they’re operating, and regular maintenance can be a bit more demanding than anticipated, in order to maintain good performance. Our team prefers the central, whole-home approach, whenever possible.
Other central air treatment products available for furnace systems include EPA filters, electronic air cleaners, and hybrid filters that incorporate UV technology. We’d be glad to discuss these or any other options you have in mind, and offer free install quotes for anything you’re interested in.
A Triple-Threat Combination for Your IAQ System
For the optimum central IAQ package, we recommend the combination of a high-quality central air purifier with a high-performance furnace filter – in our dry Colorado climate, often combined with a quality central humidifier, as well. This combination of air quality products will assure you of receiving the cleanest, healthiest air possible from your forced-air home comfort system.
