The air that circulates through your home, moving from the rooms into the return air vents and then back out the supply ducts and into the rooms once again, will often collect contamination. The pollutants that can gather in the air in your house include dust, dirt, pollen, dander, carpet and furniture fibers, and dust mites.

How Does Air Filtration Work?
Air filtration is a non–powered method of removing unwanted particles from the air circulating through an HVAC system. Air filters consist of a medium that traps foreign particles attempting to pass through it along with the air. In most filters, the medium is a mesh of fiberglass fibers that can draw particles toward them. Mechanical air filters are extremely proficient at removing contaminants: most will trap particles down to 0.3 microns in size. This is sufficient to stop 98% of the pollutants that may find their way into a home’s air. The filters will need occasional maintenance to remove the trapped material and keep them working at their best and not obstructing air flow.
Why You Need Professionals to Install Air Filters
Although air filtration systems operate on a basic principle and do not need a connection to a power supply, they still require professionals to install them. One of the reasons is that only trained HVAC and indoor air quality specialists can select the right filter to match a home’s heating and cooling system. A filter with a very high MERV rating (a measurement of how well a filter traps particles) may not be the ideal one for your home, since it could block the flow of air from your heater and air conditioner, resulting in poor comfort and elevated energy bills. Technicians must also determine what type of contamination is causing trouble in your home so they can match you with a filter that will target it.
The actual installation work also requires special skills. The technicians must access the inside of the ducts to fit in the new filters so they do their job without interfering with the job of the heating and cooling system. Trust to experience when it comes to choosing and installing a new air filtration system for your household.
