Using the Right Air Filtration System

Monday, November 17th, 2014

When many homeowners think of comfort, they think first and foremost of the temperature in their homes. However, there is far more than temperature alone to consider. In fact, the quality of the air in your home has just as much of an impact on your comfort as the temperature does. That is precisely why low indoor air quality is such a serious concern. If you have any reason at all to suspect that your indoor air quality is not all that it should be, give a member of our team a call today. We have the products and services that you need to boost the quality of the air in your home. For professional air filtration systems in La Habra, CA, call upon the pros at JC Mechanical Inc.

One important thing to keep in mind is the fact that not all problems with indoor air quality are going to benefit from the same solutions. There are a number of different issues that you may encounter, and it is important that you use the right tools for your specific situation. One of the simplest, and in many cases most effective, ways in which to boost indoor air quality is with a basic mechanical air filter. These devices are installed directly into your HVAC system, and trap pollutants on a filtering media as air passes through. Your system has a factory installed filter, yes, but its primary function is to protect the system itself from pollutants, not to boost indoor air quality. Our technicians will help you to choose the right filter for your needs, and we will ensure that it is of the right efficiency for your system, as measured by its MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value).

If further action is needed, you may want to consider the installation of an electronic air cleaner in your home. Such systems do not wait for pollutants to pass through in the air. Instead, electricity is used in order to give pollutants an electric charge. These pollutants are then trapped on collector plates or, depending on the system, simply allowed to collect on surfaces in your home. Once they do, they are easily cleaned away.
