Air Filtration Systems and Air Purifiers in Littleton, CO
How can you really tell the air you are breathing is clean and clear? It can be tough because many people just assume the air filter is doing its job. What you may not realize, is that the air filter’s primary job is to protect your AC and heating equipment, not to clean the air. While it does eliminate some particles in the air, many others are left behind, and there’s no good way to detect them.
To keep your family protected against illness, and to eliminate allergens and other airborne pollutants, we strongly recommend adding onto your HVAC system. That means installing a quality whole-house air purifier or air filtration system, which you can get from the experts at Southwest Heating and Cooling. We install and service air filtration systems and air purifiers throughout the Littleton area.
Upgrading Your Filter
Upgrading your air filter may help improve the quality of the air in your home a bit, but it’s important that you don’t take on this task on your own. An air filter can actually be too effective for your air conditioning and heating systems, meaning the fan won’t be powerful enough to suck air through it if the filter is too powerful. We recommend calling technicians to help you pick out a filtration system instead.
Finding the Right Air Filtration System
Our experts are happy to assess your home’s needs and make sure you get the right fit for your home. An air filtration system is added to your ventilation system to filter out more particulate from the air. You’ll still need to change your regular filter every 1–3 months, but a filtration system typically has a pleated surface which requires less frequent changing or cleaning.
Electronic Air Purifiers
An electronic air purifier can catch even more particulate and microorganisms from the air. Ionizing air purifiers charge particulate in the air so that they become attracted to a metal surface within the system, or so that they cling drapes and other surfaces in the home (rather than remaining airborne).
UV Air Purifiers
Our favorite electronically powered air purifying system is the UV air purifier. Ultraviolet light can kill germs, viruses, and other microorganisms (tiny living things) in the air—but in your ductwork, it won’t cause any harm to your family or your pets. All of the air moving through your HVAC system is bathed in ultraviolet light, which sterilizes these microorganisms on contact, making illnesses less likely.
