Do I need to improve my indoor air quality?

Not every home requires an advanced air filtration system or purifier. However, there are many signs that may alert you to consider one. Airborne pollutants can be much more than a nuisance. If you have pets, live near busy roadways, or are in proximity to regular construction, the air quality in your home may suffer. There are certain scenarios in which the right air filtration system could help avoid some pretty serious health implications, or severe discomfort.

Choosing air filters

Choosing the right air filter, media air cleaner, or air purification system is a pretty major decision. The air filter in your heating or air conditioning system is primarily there to protect the equipment, not to improve your indoor air quality. MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value) is the standard that rates the overall effectiveness of an air filter. Higher MERV ratings equate to a more restrictive air filter, allowing less dust and particulate through it. Though these higher rated filters may improve the quality of your air, they may be too much for your HVAC system to handle. Furthermore, they can actually put enough strain on your system to result in damage, or even failure. If you notice increased levels of dust throughout your home, or would like to improve the quality of your air, make the right choice, contact an air filtration system expert at Monster Mechanical today (973) 697-9776 or request an estimate online.
