Ace Air, Inc. believes that air filtration is a vital step in the process of keeping your family safe and healthy year–round. But, what type of filters should you use and how do you make the decision in regards to the proper size and model? It’s important to have a clear understanding of how air filtration can affect your home’s indoor air quality.
Air filtration does many things. Beyond making sure that the larger particulates like pollen, dust, and pet dander are removed from the air a high quality filter will also capture other bits and pieces of debris such as mold or bacteria.
How Filters Are Measured
There are a number of types of filters on the market, but we recommend HEPA filters for optimal home air filtration in the Merced, CA area. HEPA filters are the top of the line, highest grade filters on the market, designed to capture and remove all debris and particulate matter from the air down to 0.3 microns in size. That means that up to 99.97% of all air borne particles are filtered out.
So, make sure the first thing you do is check for HEPA certification. There are many products on the market that promise results but do not carry the HEPA certification, almost a sure sign of an inferior product. We can help you select a filtration system that meets all HEPA guidelines.
HEPA Air Filter Replacement
As with any type of filter, eventually even the highest quality materials will need replacement. Without proper maintenance and regular replacement, filters will get clogged and stop catching nearly as many of the particulates as when they are new.
Most filtration systems come with a clearly defined replacement schedule that should be followed rigidly. Smaller systems may require filter replacement every 3 months depending on the size and use of the room in which it is placed.
Other filters may only require replacement annually, but also may require more advanced maintenance to check mechanical parts for wear and tear. If that is the case, you should schedule routine maintenance to check your system once each year.
In the end, one of our representatives can help you determine if your filtration system needs to be changed more or less often than manufacturer recommendations.
