Types of Air Filters for your Eugene and Springfield, OR Home
If you have a forced air system in your home that consists of a furnace, air conditioner and/or heat pump and ductwork connected through an air handler, you already have at least one air filter. However, the air filtration that comes built into your air handler is not sufficient to remove anything larger than common dust particles. Air filters are rated on a 1–16 MERV scale and most stock filters are rated around a 4, meaning they offer the bare minimum in protection.
So, a simple upgrade to your home’s stock air filter can offer a substantial improvement to the air quality in your home. At the same time, you can go one step further and install a HEPA filter, which is considered to be between 17 and 20 on that same scale. These filters can remove up to 99.97% of all particles as small as 0.3 microns – effectively eliminating a huge percentage of the common contaminants you breathe in each day.
Which Filter Is Best for Your Home?
If you are worried about choosing the right air filter for your Eugene and Springfield, OR home, we can help. We start by performing thorough testing of your home’s indoor air quality, checking for major issues that might develop in the house and create a major problem that would require more substantial filtration (or other cleaning or purifying systems). We can then determine the exact right fit in a filter.
Keep in mind that other factors such as the age, efficiency and layout of your air handler and ventilation system can affect the installation of a new filter. A HEPA filter, for example, can slow down air flow and reduce efficiency in your home’s heating and cooling systems, especially if you have no return ducts. We can discuss options for getting around this, however, if you would like to have the best possible protection.
