Breathe Better with Whole-Home Air Filtration

An air filter is an essential HVAC part for efficiency and comfort—but it’s often forgotten.

Filtration is one of the most efficient ways to clean the air that flows through your home. It captures particles as air moves through HVAC ductwork.

There are several kinds of air purification systems you can install to improve the air in your home. Admiral Plumbing Services can suggest what’s ideal for you. And you can breathe comfortably knowing all our Expert work is upheld by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*

Take Charge of Your Home's Air Quality

Indoor air quality can impact your family’s health, particularly if there’s someone in your family with allergies, asthma or other respiratory concerns. Dust, pollen, pet dander and mold can trigger symptoms, as well as volatile organic compounds. VOCs are chemicals located in everyday household items such as cleaning products, furniture and flooring.

Today’s houses are more energy efficient than ever, but they are also more airtight. This means the air inside your home can be more polluted than outside—often two to five times more, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

There are methods you can use to take charge of your home’s air quality:

  • Reduce pollution sources
  • Ventilate with fresh air
  • Try better air filters

7 Signs You Should Try a Better Air Filtration System

There are a couple of signs that your home could benefit from a filtration system.

  1. Someone in your family has asthma or allergies.
  2. Headaches, congestion or sneezing are frequent when you’re home.
  3. Your home smells stuffy.
  4. You have pets that shed.
  5. Odors linger in your house.
  6. Someone in your house smokes.
  7. Your house is always dusty, despite regular cleaning.

Which Air Filtration System Is Right for My Home?

A whole-home air purification system can take care of pollution in your home’s air. In fact, it can also provide relief to the asthma and allergy sufferers in your household.

Studies have found controlling exposure to indoor allergens and tobacco smoke could stop 65 percent of asthma cases among elementary school-age children. And by controlling biological contaminants like dust mites, childhood asthma cases have also decreased by 55-60 percent.

HEPA Filters

The High Efficiency Particulate Air, or HEPA, filter, was designed to keep scientists safe from radiation as they worked on the atomic bomb during World War II. Today these filters are frequently used in hospitals and science labs, but you can even find one in a few homes.

HEPA filters are proven to extract 99.97 to 99.99% of particles sizes 0.3 microns and bigger. This includes pollen, dirt and dust. A HEPA air cleaner with activated carbon filters can catch the particles from chemicals, odors and smoke.

These filters boast a MERV rating of 1721, depending on the brand. This rating shows how well a filter can pull out pollutants from the air.

Because of their high-efficiency filtration performance, HEPA filters are thick and can limit airflow. It’s important to check with Admiral Plumbing Services to confirm your heating and cooling system can work with one.

Media Filters

Media air cleaners are denser than your standard air filters. They’re often four to five times wider—or more. This barrier mounts tightly against your HVAC system.

Because its filtration surface is usually around 10 inches, media filters are able to capture about 95 percent of particulates.

These filters stay fresher longer too, commonly between three to six months.

Electrostatic Filters

There are a couple of electronic filtration systems you can install in your home.

An electrostatic filter relies on magnetically charged components to catch particles. These washable filters are 97 percent effective at extracting microscopic particles from your home’s air. In addition, they’re also 30 times more effective than ordinary filters.

An electronic air cleaner uses a high-voltage magnetic charge to trap particles.

Some models can remove the majority of indoor air pollutants—particles, germs, bacteria, chemical odors and vapors—by up to 99.9 percent. It can even decrease ozone, a known lung irritant, made elsewhere in your home.

Air inside your home can be more polluted than the air outside—often two to five times more, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
