What’s Wrong with a Standard Air Filter?
HVAC pros get asked this question a lot, and we understand—your HVAC system comes with an air filter in it already, isn’t that enough? The fact of the matter is that, no, it’s not enough. This particular filter is in place to protect the inside components of your cooling or heating system from dust, dirt, and other debris that can impact its functionality and longevity. It doesn’t do much to protect your indoor air quality.
One of the biggest benefits of a high efficiency air filtration system or air purifier is that it provides comprehensive air filtration—far more than a traditional air filter can. Contact us when you’re ready to improve your indoor air quality!
How Are Air Filtration Systems Different From Air Purifiers?
There are a variety of different types of air filtration systems and air purifiers on the market, each designed to have its own functionality. The best way to determine what’s best for your West Palm Beach, FL home is to set up an appointment with one of our expertly trained and highly knowledgeable service technicians. In the meantime, we’ve shared some information below on the types of products we offer:
- Air Filtration Systems: As we mentioned above, the standard air filter that comes with your HVAC system isn’t there to protect your indoor air. Rather, you need something more powerful, such as a high efficiency air filtration system. These systems are very effective at filtering out dust, dirt, pollen, and other allergens and contaminants.
- Air Purifiers: There are a couple different types of air purifiers, each with their own purpose and benefits. For instance, an ionization purifier uses positive and negative charges to make contaminants too heavy to stay airborne. They settle on the metal plates of the purifier where they can later be cleaned off. A UV air purifier, which is installed directly into your ductwork, attacks a different type of contaminant—bacterial growth such as mold and mildew. UV air purifiers prevent bacteria from every becoming airborne in the first place.
