Arlington Heating and Air Conditioning – HEPA Filters

Arlington Heating and Air Conditioning – Everyone wants to breathe cleaner air, and indoor air has a significant impact on our health. According to the EPA, the air we breathe inside our homes is up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. This is due to newer homes being both tightly insulated and sealed providing greater energy efficiency. Metro Express Service professionals can provide your home and family with cleaner indoor air through your homes heating and air conditioning system without sacrificing energy efficiency. Advanced air filtration with HEPA filters is one of the solutions we offer for cleaner indoor air.

 

High Efficiency Particulate Air or HEPA filters remove allergens such as pollen, mold, dust mites, tobacco smoke, pet dander, bacteria, some viruses and other harmful particulates. This is especially beneficial for those who suffer from allergies and asthma. HEPA filters are 99.7% effective at removing particles 0.3 microns or greater.  A HEPA filter traps contaminates and clean air is redistributed throughout the home. They can remove dangerous contaminates from the air in your home, and provide cleaner air for to breathe. Developed for hospitals, they are used also in sickrooms, and labs.

To achieve cleaner air in your home, HEPA filters are the most effective and affordable air purifying systems available. The filters typically only require replacement every 3-5 years, and are the ideal solution for clean air in your home. However, it should be realized, though highly effective, they can only be used with systems designed for them. To use them in your standard heating and air conditioning system, can result in potential damage to the unit. We offer a variety of solutions.

Other Options

If your heating and air conditioning system is not  designed to tolerate the HEPA filter, other options are available. It is always recommended you use the filter type recommended by the units manufacturer. Our professionals can assist you.

Electrostatic Filtration

Electrostatic filters are another type of advanced air filtration. It is manufactured with charged material that attracts contaminants. The charge enables the filter to capture a much larger range and amount of particulates from your home’s air. Electrostatic filters also capture pollutants such as allergens, smoke, and bacteria.

Electrostatic filters become less efficient as the filter becomes saturated with pollutants. For this reason, replace or clean them on a regular basis, ensuring higher efficiency for your filter, optimal performance for your heating and air conditioning system, and higher air quality for your home.

Humidifiers

Dehumidifiers and humidifiers also help to improve indoor air quality. Excessive humidity can worsen the symptoms of family members with asthma, allergies and other respiratory illnesses. A whole-house dehumidifier provides relief throughout the home during the summer months where humidity is a problem. Furthermore, dust mites, and mold thrive in high humidity. A dehumidifier can provide a relative humidity below 50%, depriving mold, and dust mites of the environment they need to thrive.

During the winter humidification added to dry furnace air can be beneficial by increasing your comfort, while reducing susceptibility to illness related to dry mucous membranes. Lower humidity in the winter causes the nasal passages and skin to dry out, leaving you susceptible to respiratory illnesses such as colds and the flu, bloody noses, sore throats, static electricity, and dry, itchy skin.
