The Truth About How Air Filters Affect Indoor Air Quality
What air filters do for your indoor air quality.
Got an air filter? If you don’t, you can probably tell by the way you feel. Indoor air quality can have a huge effect on our health and wellbeing. Wondering if air filters are really that group? Here’s the truth about how air filters affect indoor air quality.
Indoor air quality can be worse than outdoor air quality. We trap pollutants inside when we close up our homes and businesses to keep the warm air in during the winter and the cool air in during the summer. The biggest things to affect indoor air quality are dust and dust mites, smoke, pet dander, mold, mildew and bacteria. The best way to rid your home of these pollutants and improve your indoor air quality is an air filter.
What Does It Do?
Air filters are incorporated into your existing HVAC system to rid the air of contaminants. Whatever is making you feel congested, giving you sinus and nasal irritation, itchy eyes, runny nose, headaches and even coughing and wheezing can be all but eliminated with a reliable air filter.
How Does It Work?
Air filters work in conjunction with your HVAC system. As the system pulls in air and sends it out as heat or cool, it filters the air through the air filter, which catches the particles in the air so they don’t circulate through your home. As the air is cleaned and filtered, the air quality in your home improves.
Don’t live with dust, pollen, dander and other pollutants. Improve your indoor air quality with a good air filter. Contact McCall's today and talk to a professional about the right air filter for you.
