Breathe Better with Whole-Home Air Filtration in Haltom City

An air filter is a crucial HVAC part for performance and comfort—but it’s frequently ignored.

Indoor air quality can impact your family’s health, specifically if there’s someone in your Haltom City home with allergies, asthma or other respiratory problems. Dust, pollen, pet dander and mold can trigger symptoms, as well as volatile organic compounds. VOCs are chemicals found in common household items such as cleaning products, furniture and flooring.

Modern houses are more energy efficient. But they are more airtight. This means the air inside your home can be more polluted than external air—often two to five times more, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

There are methods you can use to take charge of your home’s air quality:

  • Limit pollution sources
  • Ventilate with fresh air
  • Use improved air filters

Filtration is one of the best ways to clean the air that flows through your home. It captures particles as air moves through HVAC ductwork.

There are several types of air purification systems you can use to clean the air in your home. Stark Services can advise you on what’s best for you. And you can relax knowing all our Expert work is supported by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*

 

7 Signs You Need a Better Air Filtration System

There are several signs that your home could be enhanced by a filtration system.

  1. Someone in your household has asthma or allergies.
  2. Headaches, congestion or sneezing are common when you’re home.
  3. Your home smells musty.
  4. You have pets that shed.
  5. Odors remain in your house.
  6. Someone in your house smokes.
  7. Your house is continuously dusty, despite regular cleaning.

Which Air Filtration System is Right for My Home?

A whole-home air purification system can eliminate pollution in your home’s air. And possibly offer relief to the asthma and allergy sufferers in your family.

Studies have found managing exposure to indoor allergens and tobacco smoke could stop 65 percent of asthma cases among elementary school-age children. And limiting biological contaminants like dust mites can also decrease childhood asthma cases by 5560 percent.

HEPA Filters

The High Efficiency Particulate Air, or HEPA, filter, was designed to shield scientists from radiation as they developed an atomic bomb during World War II. Today these filters are regularly used in hospitals, science labs and even homes.

HEPA filters are rated to extract 99.97 to 99.99% of particles measuring 0.3 microns and larger. This includes pollen, dirt and dust. A HEPA air cleaner with activated carbon filters can trap chemicals, odors and smoke.

These filters have a MERV rating of 1721, depending on the model. This rating indicates how successfully a filter can clear pollutants from the air.

Because of their high-efficiency filtration performance, HEPA filters are deep and can limit airflow. It’s important to check with Stark Services to verify your heating and cooling system can work with one.

Media Filters

Media air cleaners are denser than basic air filters. They’re often four to five times wider—or more. This barrier fits tightly against your HVAC equipment.

Because its functional surface is usually around 10 inches, media filters are able to catch about 95 percent of particulates.

These filters stay fresher longer too, usually between three to six months.

Electrostatic Filters

There are a couple of electronic filtering systems you can use in your home.

An electrostatic filter uses magnetically charged components to capture. These washable filters are 97 percent effective at clearing tiny particles from your home’s air. Plus, they’re also 30 times more effective than regular filters.

An electronic air cleaner uses a high-voltage magnetic charge to catch particles.

Some can eliminate the majority of indoor air pollutants—particles, germs, bacteria, chemical odors and vapors—by up to 99.9 percent. And reduce ozone, a known lung irritant, created elsewhere in your home.
