Indoor Air Quality

Media Air Filters Services in Loveland, OH

The air filters in our home comfort systems play an essential role when it comes to the function of any sort of residential HVAC system, in addition to the quality of our air. When working properly, air filters are designed to capture and filter out particles and pollutants from the air.

Because clean and effective air filters lengthen the lifespan of the home heating and cooling systems, homeowners should check and change their HVAC systems’ air filters regularly in order to reduce the need for furnace and air conditioning repairs from the strain of poor airflow caused by dirty air filters.

If you’re looking to improve your air quality and make your air filters last longer, we suggest upgrading to a media air filter. If this interests you, our team members at Loveland Heating & Air would be happy to set you up with an air filter or air cleaner to use with your current HVAC system.

What is Indoor Air Quality?

While a lot of people believe air pollution is strictly an outdoor problem, studies actually indicate the air inside a lot of homes and workplaces can be more polluted and toxic than the air outside, even in bigger cities and towns. To underscore the importance of this matter, the average American spends an estimated 90 percent of their time indoors. Because the air indoors often lacks proper filtration, indoor air pollution is something homeowners should take seriously.

The EPA defines Indoor Air Quality as the quality of air inside a building or home and how it relates to the building or home’s occupants. Indoor Air Quality has a direct and sometimes negative effect on our health in addition to our overall mood, well-being and energy levels.

Why is Indoor Air Quality Important?

All too often, household air pollution can’t get out because modern dwellings are sealed airtight. In the confined spaces of a modern home or work environment, indoor pollutants can get trapped without proper filtration or outdoor air circulation. Even with the HVAC system’s air filter, often these pollutants are merely recirculated. 

If air pollution is present indoors, short-term health implications can surface after a single exposure or multiple times being exposed; it can irritate the nose, the eyes, the throat, and the skin. Or it can cause fatigue, headaches, and dizziness.

In the worst possible situations, officials say, long-term exposure to certain indoor air pollution can cause heart disease, respiratory illness, and even cancer. Because of things like this, testing is important.

How Does it Work?

Media air cleaners are the HVAC systems’ first line of defense when it comes to improving indoor air quality, and they do an excellent job at that for being a high-quality air filter. As indicated, media air cleaners are highly effective air filters that trap all sorts of tiny invisible air particles and pollutants in the air. These pollutants include a host of mold, pet dander, pollen, dirt, smoke, and dust. They are installed on a return duct line on your home comfort system and prevent particulates from entering your home. They last a lot longer than the standard one-inch air filter.

A media air cleaner is a cabinet that is stationed in the return air duct of the forced-air HVAC system, when air passes through the HVAC system, the media air cleaner traps and filters airborne particles inside the filter media before they get into your indoor atmosphere. The main difference between a media air cleaner and a standard air filter (as far as HVAC goes) is the size. Standard or conventional air filters are about one inch thick. Media cleaners, on the other hand, are 4 to 5 inches thick. This enables more efficient and superior air filtration.

4 Benefits of Air Filters

Media filters allow the filtration performance you want without the downsides. You get high-MERV filtration with zero negative consequences for static pressure and airflow. If that sounds like what you’re looking for, the media filter is your answer:

Indoor Air Quality

Prevents Dry Skin

Dry air may cause dry skin. When your skin is dry, it may crack and wrinkle more easily. This can be incredibly uncomfortable. Unfortunately, when you have dry air in your home, using lotion and chapstick may not be enough to rehydrate skin. One way to help is to have acceptable levels of moisture in the air, so your skin can absorb it.
Indoor Air Quality

Odor Control

Any time odor control is a priority; we recommend a media filter with carbon-coated fibers. Activated carbon contains micro-fissures that increase the carbon’s surface area and encourage odor absorption. When air passes over the coated fibers, the filter removes the odors from your indoor air.
Indoor Air Quality

More Surface Area

High-MERV 1″ filters don’t have enough surface area to provide good filtration performance and airflow performance simultaneously. Media filters have enough surface area to prevent significant static pressure increases while filtering bacteria and allergens as small as 0.3 microns.

Easy to Maintain

Just open the door on the cabinet box, pull out the old filter, put in the new one, and…done! You will have to do this at least twice a year to keep your system running optimally.

4 Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality

These tips will help Loveland, OH homeowners improve their Indoor Air Quality right away:

"No Smoking Zone"

Cigarette smoke indoors can linger for a long time, causing harm to all who breathe the air. Not to mention the smell and stained walls and furniture. We recommend designating a smoking area outdoors only.

Use Proper Ventilation

Kitchens and bathrooms especially need proper ventilation. Gas stoves are known to release dangerous gases such as nitrogen dioxide and carbon monoxide. Electric burners and stoves are no exception.

Vacuum Regularly

Carpets and rugs act somewhat like an air filter by capturing tiny particles like dirt and dust and other impurities such as dander and things brought into the home from the outside. Because they tend to trap all these particles in their fibers, vacuuming once a week will improve the indoor air.

Preventative Maintenance

Our certified technicians perform an extensive list of procedures that include cleanings and examinations; they carefully analyze your HVAC system and conduct a list of system checks and inspections; they analyze the condition of your air ducts and check your system’s air filters and look for any other area that merits attention.
