Replacing a HVAC system's air filter

When we’re talking about our health this winter one of the first things to consider is our indoor air quality. What can you do to improve the air in your home? There are 3 products that can help get your air cleaner:

Product #1: Air Purification Systems

Air purification systems take the air in your home, clean it and then recirculate it back into the rooms. There are different types of purification systems that use different cleaning methods.

The most effective systems use HEPA filters to remove even tiny particles from the air, particles as small as 0.3 microns. These filters trap up to 99% of airborne pollutants including smoke, bacteria, pollen, allergens, viruses, and pet dander.

Product #2: Humidifier

In the winter humidity levels typically fall, especially in our homes where the air is heated. One way to improve indoor air quality is by using a humidifier that can increase the relative humidity in your home to between 40 and 60%. This level is ideal for reducing bacteria and viruses that can thrive when it’s dry.

Product #3: The Right Filter

Nothing works better to help improve your indoor air quality than the right HVAC filter. The filter on your heating system works to capture the pollutants and particles in the air as they travel through your heating system. A clean filter is going to be the most effective, so making sure your filter is clean is making sure your air is clean.

We all want to breathe easier, and we can when we add some simple products to our homes that can help clean up our air. For more information on products that can improve your indoor air quality, contact our team at Helms Heating and Air Conditioning by calling 704-821-6255 or by clicking here.
