5 Reasons Why You Need to Install an Air Filter at Home

5 Reasons Why You Need to Install an Air Filter at Home 21 Oct

There are few things more important for a happy, healthy life than the air that we breathe, especially inside our homes where we spend the majority of our time. The air inside your home can often be more polluted than the air outdoors because it’s captive and gets recirculated again and again by your HVAC system.

Modern houses are extremely well insulated to keep heating and cooling costs down, but this can mean that dirty air can be trapped inside for extended periods of time. Thankfully, Smile HVAC has a wide range of options to choose from when it comes to the air filtration system installation.

Professionally-installed air filters are an excellent way to keep the air you breathe fresh and clean. Working alongside your HVAC system, these filters remove unwanted contaminants from the air in your home as it passes through your heating and cooling systems. At Smile HVAC, our team works with you to determine your exact requirements in terms of contaminants present, appropriate unit size, and how we can provide you with the perfect solution while staying within your budget.

Should one be needed, we can also augment your air filtration system with a HEPA (High Energy Particulate Arrestor) filter. We also provide a full range of parts and maintenance services to ensure that your family breathes clean, healthy air for years to come.

There are many advantages to choosing an integrated purification system like the one described above. Below you’ll find a list of the five biggest benefits gained from using a Smile HVAC air filtration system.

Health Benefits

The air inside your home can contain any number of different particles which can cause irritation to your respiratory system and worsen allergy symptoms. Indeed, one of the very first things that doctors recommend when treating patients with allergies is some form of air purification in the home. Dust, mold spores, smoke, pet dander, pollen, and volatile organic compounds (given off by paint and other chemicals) can all cause irritation and impact your breathing. A professionally-installed air filtration system can remove up to 99.97% of these pollutants, lessen the effects felt by allergy suffers, and make your home an even nicer place to spend time.

Better Performance than Standalone Purifiers

Standalone air purifiers can, by design, only clean the air in their immediate vicinity. This means that only the room where the purifier is located gets its air cleaned, and even this is not done efficiently as the HVAC system circulates dirty air in from other rooms in the house. Additionally, they can be bulky and noisy while turned on. A comprehensive air filtration system from Smile HVAC filters the air from every room in your home without taking up any additional space. On top of this, they usually produce no extra noise because they use the fans in your HVAC system to operate.

Multiple Filtration Stages Capture Everything

Air pollutants come in a variety of sizes and Smile HVAC has a dedicated filter for all of them. First in the system come media filters, which trap dust and other large particles. For the very smallest of particles, there are electrostatic and electronic filters that use electrical energy to attract and trap anything small enough to make it through the media filter.

UV filters use light to not only trap but also destroy bacteria and mold spores meaning that clean air no longer has to pass through them. Lastly, there are carbon blanket filters that use charcoal to guarantee clean air for you and your family. All of Smile HVAC’s air filtration systems are designed around your air cleaning and budget needs meaning that we always have a solution that works for you.

Easy Installation

Installation of these kinds of air filters is often quick, clean, and because of the out-of-the-way location of your home’s HVAC system, causes little to no disruption in your home. All of our technicians have extensive experience in the HVAC industry and perform their work up to the very highest of standards. Once we’ve worked together on a filtration system that’s perfect for your needs our technicians utilize industry best practices to give you the results you want in as little time as possible.

A Cleaner Home

A great deal of the dust that settles on your floors and furniture gets to its final location through the air in your home. Whether it’s dust, pollen, or pet dander, it all gets carried through the air circulating through your home and eventually covers every surface meaning you have to clean more often. This particular result of installing an integrated air filtration system gives some of the most immediately noticeable results. With a Smile HVAC air filtration system removing the vast majority of that dust you’ll be able to spend less time on cleaning and more time enjoying where you live. After all, that’s what home is all about.
