Choosing Air Filters for Your Home

There are a few things to take into consideration when having a new air filter installed in your home. First, how sensitive is your family to the allergens that a new air filter will capture? Air filters are rated on a MERV scale from 1 to 16 with most stock air filters rated around a 4. Upgrades are available all the way up to 16 and then there are HEPA filters that offer exceptional filtration – all the way up to the equivalent of MERV 20. These filters can remove 99.97% of all allergens 0.3 microns or larger. That’s essentially all of the dust, dander, pollen and mold spores in your home now.

However, when you get a high rated air filter, often you’ll need upgrades to your ventilation system to account for the change in air flow these sometimes create. While this is generally not a problem for most homes as a MERV 12–14 filter is extremely efficient, it may be for you if a member of your family needs the extra protection due to asthma or severe indoor allergies. A professional can discuss these issues with you in more detail when the time comes to select an air filter.

Air Filtration Installation Options

Air filters alone are generally mechanical, meaning they use a media filter to capture and remove unwanted pollutants from your indoor air. This process is simple enough – air blows through the filter, and the filter captures the pollutants. However, there are more advanced air purifiers and cleaners that also use electronic means to capture smaller particles than a filter can capture – such as smoke and exhaust. If these are an issue in your home, ask to learn more about electronic air cleaners or air purifiers that combine the technology of both.

Having a new air filtration system installed in your home is a major step in stopping the spread of allergens like dust, dander, pollen and mold that can trigger or worsen symptoms of allergies or asthma in members of your family.
