 Filtration For The Indoor Environment  
Filter remedies for a cleaner environment

Why filtered air?

What are the benefits?
The air filter in your furnace or air conditioner has a profound impact on your living environment. Regular filter maintenance is essential to maintain good indoor air quality (IAQ). Frequent filter changes can also improve energy efficiency and extend the life of mechanical systems.
The benefits of Filtered Air:
  • Protecting the general well-being of the occupants of a space
  • Protecting the decor of occupied spaces by removing the staining portion of airborne dust
  • Reducing maintenance of building interiors by reducing the frequency of washing such items as Venetian blinds and fluorescent bulbs
  • Protecting the contents of occupied spaces including paintings, tapestries and other items of historic or cultural value
  • Eliminating fire hazards by removing lint and other materials which might accumulate in ductwork
  • Extending the shelf life of perishable dairy products by removing airborne mold during processing operations
  • Removing airborne bacteria from operating room air to help prevent postoperative infection

The Importance of Air Filtration

The air filter in your furnace or air conditioner has a profound impact on your living environment. Regular filter maintenance is essential to maintain good indoor air quality (IAQ). Frequent filter changes can also improve energy efficiency and extend the life of mechanical systems.

Air filters capture small particles of dust, pollen and other contaminants that ride on currents in the airstream. A well maintained filter, one that is regularly changed or cleaned, removes debris that might otherwise end up in your lungs. Some filters can clean more than 99% of respirable particles from the air. These high efficiency filters are important for the elderly, those suffering from asthmas or allergies, and others with a compromised immune system.

When filters load with dust, they begin to create resistance against the airflow that can decrease overall system efficiency. That's why frequent filter changes or cleanings are so important. In fact, changing your furnace or air conditioner filter regularly can save you several dollars a year in energy savings.

Failure to maintain air filters properly can have a devastating result on the most expensive mechanical systems in your home furnace or air conditioner. Inadequate filtration allows for fine particles to collect on sensitive mechanical components, causing premature wear and breakdown. Regular filter maintenance can extend the life of your home's heating or air-conditioning system for years.

Duct Cleaning and Filtration

Duct cleaning and filtration must be linked together to achieve a complete Indoor Air Quality solution.Upgrading your filtration alone leaves existing contaminants in the duct system that can cause IAQ problems. Before upgrading to a better quality of filter, it is essential to ensure that the entire mechanical system is clean.

Duct cleaning without maintaining filters allows the system to be recontaminated more quickly. On the other hand, proper filter maintenance may extend the time between cleanings by keeping the system free of debris.

Which Filter Is Right For Your Needs...

Your system's filtration must be upgraded if you are using standard disposable panel filters. they have little ability to capture irritating particles from the environment-most are less than 10 percent efficient.

There are many affordable solutions to protect the indoor environment but you will want to consult with DUCTBUSTERS® representative to determine which one is best suited to your particular type of furnace or air conditioner.

Your DUCTBUSTERS® representative can help guide you through the proper selection of available filtration. Please ask which filter best meets your needs.

Some filters can be cleaned and reinstalled for years and years. While the initial investment in such a filter is higher than the cost of a disposable filter, the long-term savings add up.

Shown to the right are a few of the types of filters available.

HEPA Filters
HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particle Arrestor

HEPA - an acronym for High Efficiency Particle Arrestor (filter) or High Efficiency Particle Arrestor or High-Efficiency Particulate Air (type of filter)

Definition:

1) High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters collect the smaller, respirable particles
2) One standard-setting organization defines a HEPA filter as having a minimum particle collection efficiency of 99.97 percent by this testing method
3) HEPA filters are used to reduce the number of contaminants in indoor air. 
4) A HEPA filter will arrest or stop 99.97% of all particles .3 microns or larger. 
5) HEPA filters - used in 'clean rooms' - are essential in medicine and in the manufacture of computer components.
