Longmont’s Trusted Air Quality Team
Air pollution is not just a concern outdoors. In many cases, levels of potentially harmful airborne pollutants may even be higher in our homes than outside. Houses are built more energy-efficient than ever, and our awareness of potential indoor air quality (IAQ) concerns is also greater. Viewed together, the steady growth of indoor air treatment products makes good sense.
You can trust our highly experienced team at Save Home Heat Company to provide you with expert advice and recommendations, and professional installation of high quality, high-performance central air purifiers and air filters. These types of products are designed for use on central ducting systems such as those used with furnaces and central AC. We have been serving the Longmont, CO community since 1979, and our commitment to your complete satisfaction with our work is the foundation of our high service ratings and continued growth.
Effective Air Purification for Homes in Longmont
High quality, state-of-the-art central air purifiers installed in ducting systems like those used with forced-air furnaces can bring an enormous improvement to your home’s indoor air quality. The central air purifiers that our team recommends can help reduce airborne dust, pollen, pet dander, and mold, and are also highly effective at treating a variety of airborne and surface bacteria and viruses. In addition, it will also neutralize a wide variety of volatile organic compounds present in your home’s breathing air.
VOCs are a class of potentially harmful airborne chemicals that are released by a wide variety of household products including, but not limited to, gas cooking, air fresheners, spray cleaners and disinfectants, adhesives, paint, wood preservatives, cigarettes, wax, printer toner, cosmetics, and even home furnishings and construction material. Present in high enough levels, or in combination, VOCs can aggravate or cause respiratory issues or other potentially serious ailments. The right choice of central air purifier can make VOC concerns a thing of the past and start you on the road to much healthier indoor air.
Central air purifiers are typically installed in the ducting by the furnace or air handler and operate whenever the furnace fan is activated. Of special note is the fact that the units that our team installs treat all of the air in the home, not just air circulating through the furnace and the ducting system. In addition, a quality central air purifier will also enhance the performance of the furnace filter.
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
Highly Efficient Furnace Filters for Longmont Homes
Save Home Heat Company is also a trusted source for expert advice, recommendations, and installation of high-performance furnace filters for centrally ducted home comfort systems. As a replacement for the standard 1″ thick filters that most furnaces are set up for when the system is first installed, high performance and high-efficiency air filters, or air cleaners, will complement a high-quality air purifier and add another level of cleaning to your home’s indoor air. Reduce airborne dust, pollen, and pet dander, capture airborne mold, and even help reduce common viruses and bacteria with a high-quality furnace filter, chosen specifically to meet your needs and be the right fit for your heating and cooling system.
Our home comfort team often recommends high-performance media air filters for residential systems that can properly accommodate them. Media air cleaners far outperform standard filters, capturing much smaller particle sizes, with much higher efficiency ratings. We install quality media filters with efficiency ratings ranging from MERV11 to MERV16, giving us the ability to match each home with the filter that makes the most sense for that particular HVAC system. Some models of media air cleaners incorporate activated carbon, for assistance in removing odors, but maybe their best feature is that these types of furnace filters typically require replacement only once ever 6 to 12 months – as opposed to other filters that might get plugged within three months, and then start doing more harm than good. Talk about convenience!
Air Filter Efficiency and Airflow
A friendly word of warning about ‘high efficiency’ furnace filters: The most efficient filter available may not be the best fit for your particular heating and cooling system. Strong consideration must be taken of the amount of resistance to airflow that any new filter will add to your forced-air system. A too-restrictive filter can hamper airflow, and effect system efficiency and performance, especially in upper levels of the home and at the ‘far ends’ of the ducting system. It can even cause parts failures and reduce the lifespan of your HVAC equipment. The importance of having trusted, professional advice can be crucial when considering a furnace filter upgrade. In the Denver-Boulder area, you can rely on our team to meet your needs.
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!
Regarding portable air treatment products, our team feels much more comfortable with the whole-home approach, whenever possible. With whole-house air purifiers and air cleaners, noise levels are virtually non-existent, regular maintenance is typically less frequent, and of course, area coverage from portable units is somewhat limited. For whole-home air treatment, we recommend that you seek out products that can treat your home’s entire air supply.
Other product options such as HEPA filters, electronic air cleaners, and hybrid filters with UV light technology are also available, and we’d be glad to discuss any of them and provided free install quotes if you like.
Air Filtration, Purification, and Humidity Control: A Complete IAQ Package
For the ultimate indoor air quality system, to achieve the cleanest, healthiest air from your forced-air home comfort system, our team recommends the combination of a high-quality central air purifier with a high-performance furnace filter. In many cases, in consideration of our arid Colorado climate, the addition of a quality central humidifier completes the total IAQ system.
