Benefits of Whole-House HEPA Filtration

We all want to live comfortably in our homes. If you think that maintaining comfortable temperatures throughout your living space is enough to guarantee this, though, think again. You must also maintain high indoor air quality in your home if you hope to live in the level of comfort that we know you deserve. While there is an air filter in your HVAC system, of course, this air filter is in no way sufficient to ensure that your indoor air quality remains at a high level. Instead, it serves to protect the operating condition of your HVAC system itself. If you are serious about cleaning up the air in your home, consider whole-house HEPA filtration in Clovis, CA. Contact Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning to have your HEPA filtration system installed by an expert.

Standing for High Efficiency Particulate, HEPA air filters boast the ability to block 99.97% of particles down to .3 microns in size. This number is for laboratory conditions, though, as HEPA air filters were developed for labs in World War II, and are still commonly used in medical and commercial settings today. In your home, 80% of such sized particles is more realistic. Either way, you are talking about serious air filtering power.

Before using any HEPA air filtration systems in your home, though, you really ought to consult with a trained professionals. A standalone system, or a HEPA air purifier, may be necessary, as many HVAC systems can be overwhelmed by the high level of airflow resistance that HEPA filters can generate. We are happy to answer any questions that you may have.

When the air in your home is cleaner, your home itself is cleaner, and your HVAC system may have an easier go of it as well.
