Air Filtration Services in West Palm Beach
At Phoenix Air Conditioning, LLC, we know that having clean and fresh air is important to homeowners. However, if you are neglecting your home’s air filtration system, then you may be exposing you and your family to harmful pollutants. Looking after your filtration system is the best thing you can do for your home’s indoor air quality.
Your air filters are made up of either a woven cotton and synthetic blend or electro-charged polypropylene. These materials allow air to pass through the filter, while preventing larger, harmful pollutants from entering your home.
Air filters are rated based on their minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV). The MERV rating is used to measure the quality and effectiveness of air filters. It is based off the amount of particles that the air filter is able filter out of your air. The scale goes from 1 to 20, however for most homes, the highest filter rating you will need is 16. Anything higher and it will restrict your system’s airflow.
Filters with a 16 MERV rating are the best for residential homes. The higher the rating, the lower the pollutants that will reach your home. Not only do they get rid of common household allergens such as pollen, dust, mold, and pet dander, they are also great at capturing smoke, bacteria, as well as harmful insecticide dust.
