Even with the random heat waves that we’ve experienced recently, we can all agree that the weather around here is cooling off. Did you know that your heating system is only one part of keeping your home comfortable throughout the season? Your indoor air quality is just as important to your comfort as the temperature in the house is.
If you are looking to invest in your home’s IAQ, adding a whole-home air filter to your HVAC system can be a great idea. This system can make a huge difference in how comfortable your home is this fall and beyond. Trust us, your seasonal allergies will thank you come spring!
Doesn’t My HVAC System Have a Filter Already?
This is a common question and we are happy to answer it. The filter that is already a part of your air conditioner or furnace does help remove some airborne debris. However, its goal isn’t to improve your indoor air quality. Instead, these filters are meant to protect the internal workings of your HVAC systems to help them operate effectively.
An air filtration system, on the other hand, is meant to help improve the quality of the air entering the rooms in your home to help you breathe easier and enjoy better comfort.
The Difference an Air Filtration System Can Make
At this point, you are likely wondering how exactly an air filtration system is really going to help your home. We promise you that there are more ways than one that a filter can boost your home’s indoor environment. Here are a few impacts that we think you will want to know about:
- Filters can improve your heater’s operation. Remember how we talked about the built-in filter for your heater? Well, it can only do so much. If you have a home filled with dust, fur, and other debris. it will tax your heater filter heavily. With the help of an air filtration system though, a majority of that airborne debris will be removed from the airflow in your home, preventing it from getting to your heater.
- Filters can keep your home cleaner. This one may go without saying but we want to make sure we don’t leave anything out. Filters are installed into your ductwork where they remove a variety of airborne contaminants from dust and dirt to fur, pollen, allergens, and more. This means that your filter is going to help keep your home cleaner by literally removing the particles that would otherwise end up creating a layer of dust on your furniture.
- Filters can help you feel healthier. What sounds more appealing: waking up with a clear head or waking up sneezing with a stuffed nose? Unless you really enjoy nasal irritation, you likely would opt for option one. Thankfully, filters can remove allergens and other particles that would otherwise leave you feeling less than your best.
So, would you benefit from installing a whole-home air filtration system? If you struggle with high levels of dust, consistent allergies, and a heater that struggles to get the airflow it needs through a dusty filter, the answer is probably yes.
