Most Plainfield residents spend a lot of time at home. These days, many professionals even work from home offices, then spend the rest of their free time relaxing in their home before going to sleep. But having poor indoor air quality could have a damaging effect on their health.
Some homeowners assume they should only worry about air quality if one or more of their family members have underlying health problems like asthma, allergies, or compromised immune systems. While it’s true that sensitive populations like these are more likely to suffer from exacerbations of their symptoms due to poor indoor air quality, everyone can benefit from improving the quality of the air they breathe.
The most effective way to improve air quality is to install a HEPA filtration system. Short for high-efficiency particulate air filtration systems, HEPA filters can remove over 99% of airborne contaminants such as allergens, pathogens, toxins, and dust. The whole-home HEPA filters installed by Mister Quik Home Services can be integrated into the home’s existing HVAC systems to treat all of the air that enters the family’s living spaces, keeping everyone more comfortable.
Why Install a HEPA Filtration System in Plainfield?
All HVAC systems have filters, but not all filters are created equal. The ones that come standard in modern HVAC units can remove large particles like dirt and debris, but they can’t filter out tiny contaminants. HEPA filters, on the other hand, are much more effective at removing smaller airborne particles.
Most residential HVAC systems feature 1″ filters. Their effectiveness is measured as a function of minimum efficacy reporting value (MERV). Filters with higher MERV ratings are more effective at catching small particles, but traditional filters have MERV ratings of just five to nine. They’ll catch large particles, but will allow most dust, pollen, mold spores, bacteria, and viruses to pass through. HEPA filters have much higher MERV ratings. They trap an average of 99.97% of all airborne particulates, which can have a dramatic positive impact on the home’s indoor air quality. As a result, they’re often found in hospitals, labs, and other sensitive environments. Now, homeowners can take advantage of the same unbeatable particulate filtration.
Why Homeowners Need a HEPA Filtration System
Installing a whole-home HEPA filtration system requires altering the existing HVAC ducts to accommodate larger filters. For the expert HVAC technicians at Mister Quik Home Services, this is no trouble at all.
Homeowners should consider HEPA filtration system installation in Plainfield a necessity rather than a luxury, especially if any of the following apply:
- One or more residents suffers from asthma or allergies
- Shedding and dander from pets
- Residents or guests smoke inside
- Homeowners have noticed a musty odor
- Air feeling stuffy and stagnant
- Residents or guests frequently experience coughing, sneezing, or headaches
- It seems like there’s always a layer of dust, even after cleaning
HEPA filters can’t resolve all of these problems, but they form an integral part of any comprehensive indoor air quality improvement plan. Mister Quik installs HEPA filters and also utilizes other technologically advanced methods for improving air quality, such as UV lights and humidity control strategies.
Replacing HEPA Filters
Just like traditional HVAC filters, HEPA filters need to be replaced periodically to avoid clogs and reduced airflow. When the filters get clogged, it makes it difficult for clean air to pass through. The lower airflow makes it harder to maintain optimal temperatures and place more strain on the house’s HVAC system, but a routine HEPA filter replacement will relieve these problems.
Since whole-home HEPA filters are integrated into the home’s HVAC system, it’s easier to schedule regular filter changes than it is to undertake this essential maintenance task at home. Mister Quik in Plainfield offers service plans that include regular HVAC system maintenance, including filter changes.
Allowing filters to become clogged with dust and debris will lead to higher energy bills, more frequent breakdowns, and an increased risk of premature HVAC system failures. Those who are worried that it won’t be worth the money should consider the alternative.
