The air inside a typical home is often more polluted than the air outside, which makes high-quality filtration essential to the health of your family.
Most heating and cooling systems still use a basic air filter. These filters were originally designed to protect the equipment and not the people served by the equipment. The average air filter is only capable of removing 3% to 5% of the particles that pass through it. Today, however, there are several types of permanent air filters available in various efficiencies that can help you filter the air in your home. If you suffer from allergies, asthma, hay fever or other breathing difficulties, there is an air filter that can help you. We can even provide you with the same type of air filter used in hospital operating rooms.
Various factors determine the type of air filtration system you choose for your home. ClimateCare offers a large selection of indoor air quality equipment to meet everyone’s needs.
Electronic Air Filters
Recent studies show that as homes become more energy efficient, more pollutants and contaminants become trapped inside the home. Electronic air cleaners remove airborne contaminants such as cigarette smoke, pollen, bacteria, virus, mould, and dust, but in order to operate efficiently, they must be cleaned frequently.
Mechanical Air Filters
For most allergy and respiratory sufferers, hay fever and similar illnesses are a result of breathing pollen, moulds, spores or pet dander. Mechanical air cleaners remove dust and other irritating particles from your home as the blower fan in your furnace draws them to the tightly sealed air cleaner. The clean air is then circulated through your furnace and back to the rooms in your home. High efficiency, silent operation and minimal maintenance has made mechanical air cleaners a popular choice in air filtration.
