How Do Air Filtration Systems Work?

To remain energy efficient, your home is well-sealed from the outdoors. This prevents it from influencing the temperature, but it can also make indoor air stagnant and polluted. In fact, EPA studies show indoor pollutant levels are often 2 to 5 times higher than outside. An air filtration system captures these pollutants in an air filter, the design of which depends on the model of filtration system.

Some filters use electrical currents to attract particles toward them, while others rely on small, absorbent pores. Their design will also influence whether or not they can be reused. Reusable filters need thorough cleaning in order to remain working efficiently.

The size of your filtration system can also vary. A whole-house filtration system is designed to be placed in your ductwork. It traps particles moving through your HVAC system and can improve air quality for your entire home. Smaller models are available for specific rooms or spaces.

Regardless of its size, an air filtration system can be an effective solution for different IAQ concerns. It traps many different airborne particles, including:

  • Dust
  • Pet dander
  • Pollen
  • Mold and mildew
  • Bacteria and some viruses
  • Smoke and odor particles
  • Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

There Are Several Types of Air Filtration Systems

You may wonder which filtration system is best for your IAQ needs. An experienced technician at Ditter can provide indoor air quality testing. We use special equipment that detects humidity, pollution and other aspects of indoor air quality. With comprehensive results, we’ll identify the air purification system perfect for keeping air clean and healthy. Here are just a few of the indoor air quality solutions we offer.

HEPA Air Purifier

These systems use a High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter. A HEPA air purifier system is one of the most common available. A quality HEPA air purifier can trap 99.97% of airborne particles. This includes smaller particles down to .3 microns that can slip through regular air filters.

Because a HEPA air purifier is so thick, it can reduce the airflow in your HVAC system and increase your energy bill. We’ll inspect your system to make sure this purification system is a good fit.

Activated Carbon Air Purifier

An activated carbon air purifier is filled with absorbent pores. These pores collect particles as they pass through the filter. Their design makes them ideal choices for volatile organic compounds (VOC). VOCs are irritating chemicals found in everyday products, like cleaners, furniture and flooring. Carbon filters are also effective against odors and tobacco smoke.

Electrostatic Air Purifier

An electrostatic air purifier attracts particles with static electricity. The filtration system generates the electricity, which is then stored in the filter’s fibers. They are effective against most indoor contaminants, including some viruses under certain airflow conditions. Electrostatic systems are environmentally friendly since the filters are washable.

What Are the Benefits of Air Filtration?

You could benefit from higher indoor air quality even if you’re not currently noticing anything. Many of these substances can collect in places difficult to see or access. For example, mold growing in an interior wall produces spores you might end up breathing in. A whole-home filtration system will trap many of these substances, and provide easy disposal through cleaning or replacing the filter itself.

With consistent management, your air filtration system can assist with:

  • Reducing allergy symptoms. Pollen, pet dander and other allergens are easily trapped in filters. Not only will you breathe easier, but other symptoms like watery eyes and running sinuses may see immediate improvement.
  • Lowering the risk of illness. In some cases filters are capable enough to trap bacteria and even some viruses, helping reduce the risk of illness.
  • Help keep your home clean. Less dust and grime is almost immediately noticeable. Many customers particularly enjoy cleaning less.
  • Discourage mold and mildew growth. These substances produce musty odors and can damage your home. Air filtration equipment circulates air efficiently to prevent damp, stagnant conditions.
