A Better Air Filter Means Healthier Indoor Air
Choosing an air filter really depends on the needs of the homeowner. For example, a standard air filter is designed to protect the furnace by preventing dust and debri from entering, but has little to no impact on the quality of air inside your home. For some homeowners this will do, but those of us blessed with allergies, asthma, and chronic colds require a stronger, High-Performance Air Filter.
The High-Performance Air Filter uses 32 square feet of electrically charged material to trap up to 99% of airborne contaminants. This is a game changer for people susceptible to illnesses, or looking for relief from allergy or asthma symptoms.
Will it give me higher energy bills?
Normally, air filters with higher MERV ratings are great for improving indoor air quality but come at the cost of higher energy bills and premature equipment failure due to lack of airflow. However, despite the MERV 11 or 13 ratings, the High-Performance Air Filter is specifically designed for high capture efficiency with very low air restriction. In fact, the MERV 11 High-Performance Air Filter has no more air restriction than a MERV 8 filter, but it removes 40% more dirt.
What Does the High-Performance Air Filter Trap?
Knowing the High-Performance Air Filter traps to 99% of contaminants as small as .3 micon (1/84,000 of an inch) begs the question of “what exactly does it trap?”
- mold spores
- mites and pet dander
- cooking smoke and grease
- tobacco smoke particles
Benefits of Upgrading Your Air Filter
Many homeowners upgrade their air filter for the health benefits, particularly relief from allergy and asthma symptoms. While most of the credit for a filter upgrade goes to health benefits, the benefit of less maintenance and lower energy bills should not be overlooked.
Regardless of the reason, you can’t go wrong with upgrading to a High-Performance Air Filter because it can:
- Lower energy bills
- Reduce allergy/asthma symptoms
- Chronic colds/flu
- Minimize dust
- Filter disposals means more eco-friendly
- Extend life of HVAC equipment
- Improve efficiency of Air Ionizer
