Fall might bring crisp and fresh air to those up North, but A/C filters are Florida’s solution for freshening air during our warm fall months.
As we recognize National Indoor Air Quality Awareness Month, the experts at United Refrigeration, Heating and Air are explaining the best choices for air filters and air purification systems. Here is how to improve air quality at homes and businesses in North Central Florida.
Best Air Filters for A/C Systems and Good Air Quality
For those of us in regions surrounding Ocala and the Villages, we need the best air filters because we run our air conditioning throughout the entire year. The constant running of Florida A/C systems provides an opportunity to circulate fresh air continuously where we live and work.
Essentially, you can only achieve good air quality with clean A/C filters in place. In addition to dust, there is a wide array of allergens and debris that can clog a filthy air filter. This could ruin your A/C systems, but it could also hinder operations and pollute your indoor air quality.
As a simple solution, replace your air filter monthly or according to your HVAC manual and usage. Choose the appropriate size or type of air filter for your unique specifications. There are many brands and types of A/C filters for different systems and needs. For example:
- Higher MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rankings can reduce more particles.
- HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filters can help trap allergens and pollutants.
- Disposable fiberglass filters offer various options and price points for effectiveness.
- Washable electrostatic air filters use electricity for attracting charged particles.
- Polyester and pleated filters may be useful for greater surface areas.
Also, system cleanings and preventative maintenance schedules are imperative for system longevity and comfortable temperatures throughout the year. Ask United’s experts which A/C filters, maintenance schedules, and thermostat settings are right for your home or business.
Air Purification Systems to Improve Air Quality
While clean air filters are a basic requirement to improve air quality, there are also upgrades for air purification systems. As a certified contractor for Global Plasma Solutions (GPS), United’s experts can help you understand the superior air quality and value of needlepoint ionization technologies. With little to no maintenance needed, GPS purifies air to provide odor control and particle filtration. The technology can also help reduce viruses, bacteria, and mold.
As another option, United’s experts install REME HALO® Whole Home In-Duct Air Purifiers to help reduce odors, allergens, pollutants, and even gases. With today’s technologies, United can offer many options for purifying every cubic inch of indoor air that your A/C system reaches.
