Breathe Better with Whole-Home Air Filtration in Concord

An air filter is an important HVAC component for effectiveness and comfort—but it’s regularly forgotten.

Indoor air quality can influence your family’s health, specifically if there’s someone in your Concord household with allergies, asthma or other respiratory problems. Dust, pollen, pet dander and mold can worsen symptoms, as well as volatile organic compounds. VOCs are chemicals that are part of regular household items like cleaning products, furniture and flooring.

Up-to-Date houses are more energy efficient. But they are more airtight. This means the air inside your home can be worse than outside—often two to five times more, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

There are methods you can use to take charge of your home’s air quality:

  • Limit pollution sources
  • Ventilate with fresh air
  • Use improved air filters

Filtration is one of the most efficient techniques to clean the air that flows through your home. It catches particles as air moves through HVAC ductwork.

There are several kinds of air purification systems you can use to enhance the air in your home. Freschi Service Experts can advise you on what’s best for you. And you can breathe easy knowing all our Expert work is upheld by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*

 

7 Signs You Need a Better Air Filtration System

There are several signals that your home could be improved by a filtration system.

  1. Someone in your household has asthma or allergies.
  2. Headaches, congestion or sneezing are frequent when you’re home.
  3. Your home smells stale.
  4. You have pets that shed.
  5. Odors stick around in your house.
  6. Someone in your home smokes.
  7. Your house is continuously dusty, despite routine cleaning.

Which Air Filtration System is Right for My Home?

A whole-home air purification system can eliminate pollution in your home’s air. And possibly offer relief to the asthma and allergy sufferers in your household.

Studies have found controlling exposure to indoor allergens and tobacco smoke could counter 65 percent of asthma cases among elementary school-age children. And controlling biological contaminants like dust mites can also decrease childhood asthma cases by 5560 percent.

HEPA Filters

The High Efficiency Particulate Air, or HEPA, filter, was developed to shield scientists from radiation as they developed an atomic bomb during World War II. Today these filters are often used in hospitals, science labs and even homes.

HEPA filters are rated to remove 99.97 to 99.99% of particles measuring 0.3 microns and greater. This includes pollen, dirt and dust. A HEPA air cleaner with activated carbon filters can capture chemicals, odors and smoke.

These filters have a MERV rating of 1721, depending on the brand. This rating indicates how well a filter can clear pollutants from the air.

Because of their high-efficiency filtration capabilities, HEPA filters are dense and can restrict airflow. It’s important to touch base with Freschi Service Experts to verify your heating and cooling system can handle one.

Media Filters

Media air cleaners are denser than regular air filters. They’re often four to five times wider—or more. This barrier attaches snugly against your HVAC system.

Because its functional surface is usually around 10 inches, media filters are able to catch about 95 percent of particulates.

These filters stay fresher longer too, typically between three to six months.

Electrostatic Filters

There are several different types of electronic filtering systems you can install in your home.

An electrostatic filter uses magnetically charged components to attract. These washable filters are 97 percent effective at removing tiny particles from your home’s air. Plus, they’re also 30 times more effective than everyday filters.

An electronic air cleaner involves a high-voltage magnetic charge to trap particles.

Some can eliminate the majority of indoor air pollutants—particles, germs, bacteria, chemical odors and vapors—by up to 99.9 percent. And reduce ozone, a known lung irritant, created elsewhere in your home.
