Air Filtration

Air filtration is the most critical element to indoor air quality, system performance, system efficiency, and system longevity. It is imperative that we have a working knowledge of what type of environment our clients would like to enjoy. We offer a wide array of options for air filtration, from simple 1” filter replacements, all the way to filtration systems that can provide you hospital grade air purification. Facts about filtration:

  • Filters were never conceived of to filter dust. The original filters were there to protect the system, not your family.
  • Expensive or “performance” 1” pleated filters rob your system of air, thus, eliminating efficiency and comfort
  • The EPA states that filters with high static (restriction) can take your 16 SEER system down to a 9.2 SEER
  • New aluminum coils are particularly susceptible to damage from air restrictions
  • Restricted air results in dangerous heat exchanger operation
  • Premature system failure is less likely be due to debris and far more likely to be associated with lack of airflow
  • Pleated 4.5” filters are built with system performance and family health as a matter of great importance
