Making Your Home Safer with Better Air Quality
Clean air inside your home is essential to keeping your family healthy. Although there are many advantages to homes being air-tight these days, such as increased energy efficiency, it can harm the quality of your indoor air. And while it may be scary to think about, being inside your home can expose you to concentrations of some pollutants that are up to five times higher than outdoor levels, according to the EPA. Failure to combat these contaminants trapped inside your home can cause significant health issues for you and your family.
Fortunately, there are ways that you can improve the quality of your air. When you turn to GM Climate Control Inc., our North Hollywood air filtration experts can help you find and install a system that removes most of the polluting particles that fill your air.
Signs You Need an Air Filtration System

Types of Home Air Filtration Systems
Air filtration systems for your home fall into two categories: mechanical air filters and electronic air cleaners. Mechanical filters are made up of synthetic fibers that trap small particles as air passes through your HVAC system. While your heating and cooling equipment should already have a fiberglass air filter, this type of filter is designed to protect your HVAC equipment, rather than clean your air. However, there are high-efficiency mechanical air filters that can remove high percentages of the air pollutants in your home.
Electric or electrostatic air filters are distinct from mechanical filters in that they clean the air by using the power of static electricity. As the dirty air enters the filter, the static electricity charges the particles so that they get stuck to the inside of the filter. The most effective electrostatic filters are those that have multiple layers of varying charge.
