AIR FILTRATION SYSTEMS AND SERVICES IN GASTONIA, NC

There are many methods available to a homeowner to remove particles and contaminants from floating around the living spaces. The standard method—but one that works extremely well—is to have mechanical air filters placed into the ventilation system. Although an air filtration system isn’t always the complete solution for air quality concerns in a home, there are many cases where it’s all the house will need.

It’s important that you do not attempt to put in an air filtration system on your own, since you might accidentally place extra strain on your heating and air conditioning system with an over-powerful filter. There’s a basic shortcut to great air filters, which is to call FSM Heat & Air. We provide numerous types of indoor air quality services for Gastonia, NC and the surrounding area, and we’ll handle whatever work you need for great air quality through filters.

THE AIR FILTER ON YOUR AC AND HEATER ISN’T ENOUGH!

You may think that you already have sufficient air filtration thanks to the filter that comes with your HVAC system. However, this isn’t the case, because this filter isn’t designed clean your air. What it does is protect the cabinet of the heater/AC from dust and debris that can damage it. It does very little good for the air that moves through the rest of the ventilation system and into your living spaces.

What you need to properly keep dust, dirt, dander, pollen, dust mites, and other debris from circulating through the HVAC system is a mechanical air filter that is professionally installed. Indoor air quality professionals will find the MERV rating (the efficiency rating system for filters) that will trap the unwanted particles while not placing undue stress on airflow through the ducts.

HOW EFFECTIVE ARE THESE AIR FILTERS?

Provided that you rely on IAQ experts to select and install the filters, they are extremely effective. A good mechanical air filter should be able to trap more than 99% of the unwanted particles passing through your air down to 0.3 microns. And it will do it without consuming any energy at all!

However, there are times when a home suffers from smaller pollutants that might slip through an air filter. In these cases you can rely on your indoor air quality specialists to pair up your filter with an air purifier (which will not place any additional resistance on airflow) so that you have the maximum air protection necessary.
