Air Filtration Systems
Air Quality is usually something we only think about when BIG, OBVIOUS problems occur, like when wildfire smoke blocks out sun. But how healthy is the air you breathe the rest of the time? The filtration system, most furnaces or other HVAC systems include are usually only there to protect the equipment, not you! The thin, paper or fiberglass filters are installed at the point where the air enters the furnace to keep dust and particulates from entering the furnace. These filters are most often a low MERV rating, and the only catch the largest particles before they circulate though your home.
What is a MERV rating? Well, the MERV rating is the efficiency rating of a filter and indicates the size of the particles that are trapped. Most commonly used filters can trap particles 1 micron or larger. These filters are fine to protect your furnace when they are changed at least every 3 months but may miss many particles, leaving them for you to breathe in.
There are many, many options for improving the air quality in your home, and most can be added to your existing system. For example, you can simply add a filter cabinet that houses a filter capable of filtering particles as small as 0.3 microns or a system that filters, kills mold, bacteria, viruses and purifies and deodorizes that air in your home at a rate of 250 cubic feet per minute.

Whole Home HEPA Air Cleaner
AMHP-300-GT Duct Mount HEPA bypass air cleaner uses True HEPA media material that is certified to remove 99.97% of all particles as small as 0.3 microns (1/84,000 of an inch) from a home's air.
• The MERV 8 pre filter with activated carbon helps remove lint to prolong the life of HEPA filter and unpleasant odors, such as those from cooking,
smoking, painting or other household activities
• Since the AMHP-300-GT is installed in a bypass configuration, it does not add static pressure to the HVAC system
• Versatile installation: duct mounted or collar mounted with pre-punched knockouts
• Plug-in power cord (120 VAC); no field wiring required
By removing particulates from the air, this air cleaner also helps protect and prolong the operating efficiency of the home's heating and cooling equipment. It's ideal for homes with space constraints in their furnace/air conditioning rooms.

Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers
A good humidity level for the average home is between 34 and 45 percent. Keeping your home at this level ensures the most comfortable and healthy environments while also protecting your home from excessive humidity or dryness. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers are used during certain times of the year in order to prevent mold or even nasal congestion.
• Increases moisture in the air.
• Commonly used during winter months when the air is dry.
• Keeps skin from drying out and helps to control allergies and nasal congestion.
• Decreases moisture in the air.
• Commonly used during summer months when the air is warm and humid.
• Keeps allergies and headaches at bay by preventing mold and mildew build up.
The HE evaporative humidifiers provide whole-home humidification and use the warm air from the furnace to evaporate water that is trickled over an internal humidifier pad.
The HS Series electrode steam humidifiers work by heating water in a secure, internal cylinder to create steam and the system's fan circulates the humidified air throughout the house.
The Clean Comfort DVI dehumidifier is a high-efficiency, whole-house ventilating dehumidifier designed to fit in tight, low-clearance applications. The unit removes up to 155 pints of water per day and provides effective air filtration (MERV 11).
The unit can be tied into a forced air duct system, dedicated ducting or used in a freestanding application. The DV070 can be installed in mechanical rooms, closets, attics, basements and crawl spaces.
Most HVAC equipment requires filters and it is very important to change or clean the filters regularly to protect the equipment and your health.
Depending on the size and efficiency of your filter, it may need to be replaced as often as once a month, especially if you have pets.
Most equipment is installed with a standard disposable filter but there are many other filtration options that may be installed and require regular filter replacement. The filter you need will depend on the size of your filter cabinet and your choice of MERV rating, or filter efficiency.
