Breathe Better with Whole-Home Air Filtration in Daytona Beach

An air filter is a crucial HVAC component for efficiency and comfort—but it’s often overlooked.

Indoor air quality can impact your family’s health, particularly if there’s someone in your Daytona Beach family with allergies, asthma or other respiratory issues. Dust, pollen, pet dander and mold can aggravate symptoms, as well as volatile organic compounds. VOCs are chemicals that are part of everyday household items including cleaning products, furniture and flooring.

Modern structures are more energy efficient. But they are sealed more tightly. This means the air inside your home can be worse than outside—often two to five times more, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

There are methods you can use to take control over your home’s air quality:

  • Limit pollution sources
  • Ventilate with fresh air
  • Use improved air filters

Filtration is one of the best ways to clean the air that flows through your home. It catches particles as air moves through HVAC ductwork.

There are several types of air purification systems you can install to improve the air in your home. All American Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can recommend what’s ideal for you.

7 Signs You Need a Better Air Filtration System

There are several signals that your home could be enhanced by a filtration system.

  1. Someone in your household has asthma or allergies.
  2. Headaches, congestion or sneezing are common when you’re home.
  3. Your home smells stale.
  4. You have pets that shed.
  5. Odors remain in your house.
  6. Someone in your household smokes.
  7. Your house is always dusty, despite weekly cleaning.

Which Air Filtration System is Right for My Home?

A whole-home air purification system can handle pollution in your home’s air. And possibly provide relief to the asthma and allergy sufferers in your home.

Studies have found controlling exposure to indoor allergens and tobacco smoke could prevent 65 percent of asthma cases among elementary school-age children. And restricting biological contaminants like dust mites can also reduce childhood asthma cases by 5560 percent.

HEPA Filters

The High Efficiency Particulate Air, or HEPA, filter, was designed to keep scientists safe from radiation as they worked on an atomic bomb during World War II. Today these filters are often used in hospitals, science labs and even homes.

HEPA filters are rated to remove 99.97 to 99.99% of particles measuring 0.3 microns and greater. This includes pollen, dirt and dust. A HEPA air cleaner with activated carbon filters can capture chemicals, odors and smoke.

These filters have a MERV rating of 1721, depending on the model. This rating demonstrates how effectively a filter can pull out pollutants from the air.

Because of their high-efficiency filtration performance, HEPA filters are deep and can reduce airflow. It’s important to check with All American Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning to make sure your heating and cooling system can work with one.

Media Filters

Media air cleaners are sturdier than common air filters. They’re often four to five times wider—or more. This barrier fits tightly against your HVAC unit.

Because its active surface is usually around 10 inches, media filters are able to trap about 95 percent of particulates.

These filters stay fresher longer too, commonly between three to six months.

Electrostatic Filters

There are a few electronic filtering systems you can use in your home.

An electrostatic filter uses magnetically charged components to attract. These washable filters are 97 percent effective at extracting tiny particles from your home’s air. Plus, they’re also 30 times more effective than regular filters.

An electronic air cleaner applies a high-voltage magnetic charge to trap particles.

Some can remove the majority of indoor air pollutants—particles, germs, bacteria, chemical odors and vapors—by up to 99.9 percent. And reduce ozone, a known lung irritant, produced elsewhere in your home.
