Filter In Some Fresh Air

And Breathe Healthier

You know that feeling of sliding into a bed under a set of fresh, clean, crisp sheets? It’s definitely an “ahhhh” moment. It’s also probably how your HVAC system feels when it gets a brand new filter. Your system is probably shouting “Ahhhh, I can breathe again!” A new filter can give your air quality system new life and provide your home with exceptionally fresh pollutant-free air.

Super Care for Your Air

When it comes to protecting your heating and cooling system, the air filter is your HVAC system’s best friend. Its main function is to prevent dust, dirt, pollen, pet dander and other harmful particles from traveling through your ductwork and spilling out into your home. Filtering out these dangers allows for cleaner air and better airflow. In addition, removing these harmful particles means your system doesn’t have to work as hard to do its job. The result? Extra indoor comfort and better breathing along with these added benefits:

  • Lower monthly bills
  • Better energy efficiency
  • Longer lifespan of your system
  • Fewer repairs
  • … And more!

Ready to Filter, Now What?

OK, so you’re sold on breathing cleaner air and are anxious to move full steam ahead with a new filtration system. But how do you know what to choose? Great question. The experts at Cool Techs Heating & Air can assess your home and provide recommendations as to the perfect filter system for your needs.

Here are a variety of filters that will protect your HVAC from contaminants and provide your whole household with the cleanest air possible:

  • Fiberglass air filters: These disposable filters are typically cheaper than others and will provide minimal protection from dust and dirt buildup. They can catch larger particles, but do not have great efficiency for catching smaller particles such as dust mites, viruses, bacteria and dander.
  • Media air filters. Media air filters have a higher efficiency than fiberglass and are a medium source of protection when it comes to capturing airborne particles.
  • HEPA air filters. HEPA filters are the go-to of all filters. They are recognized for providing excellent air quality control and can catch up to 99 percent of all particles.
  • Electrostatic filters (also known as washable air filters). Electrostatic filters can trap up to 94 percent of dust and allergens that pass through the filter. It is recommended they be washed every three months. Following this ritual can make them last up to five years.
