A whole-house air filtration system is the perfect solution for cleaning the air throughout your home. Whether you choose an oven filter, an inlet UV system, or a HEPA filter system, you can rest assured that your air will be free of dust, pollen, and other allergens. HVAC air purifiers are installed in the air return ducts before the air controller or furnace, and most are washable for easy maintenance. It's important to note that there are many misconceptions about “whole-house air purifiers”.
Some air purifiers are marketed as such, but they are actually large portable units. While they can filter more air than smaller units, they don't actually clean all the air in the house. The HVAC system is the only way to ensure that all of the air in your home is purified. The best way to ensure that your home's air is virtually virus-free is to install an ultraviolet (UV) light or other sterilization device with your air filtration system.
This will provide a complete air filtration system that small, portable or one-room air filtration systems can't offer. Air conditioning filters and oven filters can pick up dust mites and other allergens in the air, but they leave dust-like residues that still have harmful effects on the ability to breathe. When it comes to choosing a whole-house air purifier, it's important to look for one that complies with the HEPA standard. This ensures that it “filters out at least 99.97% of particles that are greater than or equal to 0.3 µm in size”.
A whole-house purification system will save you time and money by protecting your HVAC system, will not generate additional energy consumption, and will be easy to maintain. Finally, it's important to note that some multimedia air filters can be so thick that they make it difficult for ovens and air handlers to draw air through them. To avoid this issue, make sure you choose an air filter that is specifically designed for your HVAC system.
