Indoor Air Quality
Air Filtration Systems
For homes that suffer from a high concentration of airborne pollutants, the best place to start with improving conditions is with a set of air filters. These filters use a mesh of fibers to trap unwanted particles that attempt to move through them along with the air flow. A properly installed air filtration system can eliminate the majority of airborne nuisances inside a home’s HVAC system, such as dust, pollen, dander, and numerous other allergens and asthma triggers.
However, this isn’t a case where you can simply go out and purchase a filter and put it in yourself. Professional assistance is necessary so that you have the filters that will help clean your air, instead of making trouble for your air conditioner and heater. Fresh Air, L.P. is available in the Sugar Land area to provide this assistance. We’ll see that you have the healthiest indoor air possible.

How Effective Is an Air Filtration System?
"Why do I need an extra air filter when there’s already one installed on my AC and furnace?" We sometimes hear this question from customers, and the answer is that the furnace and AC filter isn’t designed with the purpose of cleaning the air of a home. This filter protects the internal components of the HVAC system from damage due to debris coming through the return ducts, and has only a minimal effect on indoor air quality.
Special air filtration systems can do an extremely thorough job of eliminating unwanted particles from your home. Depending on a filter’s MERV rating (efficiency rating), it can trap many pollutants 0.3 microns in size or larger with greater than 99% efficiency. This is sufficient to stop dander, pollen, dust mites, dirt, carpet and furniture fiber, and many other nuisances.
How to Find the Right Air Filters for Your Home
However, you should be cautious regarding MERV rating and extremely strong filters. If an air filtration system isn’t the right one for your needs or is poorly matched to your heating and cooling system, it can end up harming your comfort and causing a drop in energy efficiency. To find the right type and strength of air filter for your household, it’s important that you call on indoor air quality experts, such as the ones we have on staff. They will determine what type of airborne pollutants you have, and then see that the filters installed will trap these irritants without placing too much stress on the rest of the HVAC system.
