What Are Air Filtration Systems?
An air filtration system is deceptively simple in design. It is basically a tightly woven fiber mesh, which is stretched over a frame and installed in the ducts of your home. The mesh is loosely woven enough to allow air to flow through it when forced air systems are on. However, any contaminants that come into contact with the filter become snared in the fibers. This is how an air filtration system removes contaminants from your air.
Why You Need an Air Filtration System
Some of the common particles found in homes’ indoor air includes: dust, dirt, pollen, dander (both animal and insect), mold spores, viruses, and bacteria. Most of these are lung irritants, causing coughing and sneezing if inhaled. Others, like viruses, mold spores, and bacteria, are infectious agents capable of causing all kinds of disease. Finally, several of them are allergens, which are a big problem for those who suffer from allergies. These have real, substantial negative effects on your health and air quality. This is why it’s so important to install an air filtration system.
The MERV Rating
All air filtration systems are governed by the MERV rating system. MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. MERV is a measurement of how tightly woven the air filter is. The higher the MERV rating, the smaller the particles that the air filter can capture. Filters with the highest MERV ratings are used in hospitals, server rooms, and other environments that must be absolutely clean.
The problem that a lot of homeowners run into with filtration systems is that they install ones that have higher MERV ratings. While these filters definitely remove most contaminants from their air, they are so tightly woven that residential HVAC systems cannot push air flow through them. This is why you should always consult with a professional before selecting an air filtration system for your home.
