Indoor Air Quality Services In Manchester, Mechanicsburg, Dover, York, & Surrounding Areas
IMPROVING INDOOR AIR QUALITY IN YOUR YORK, PA HOMES & BUSINESSES
It's never been as important as it is now to make sure the air inside your home and business is clean and healthy to breathe. Everyone has an air filter in their HVAC system, but those can only do so much. We want to make sure homes and businesses in York, Camp Hill, Lancaster, and the surrounding areas have the cleanest air possible with some of this new and improved technology.
There are all sorts of new and refined technology that clean the air of bacteria, viruses, odors, allergens, and other VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds).
AIR SCRUBBER BY AERUS
The Air Scrubber by Aerus plugs directly into your duct system, and actively cleans the air. Filters are passive cleaners, meaning the air has to go through them to be cleaned. The Air Scrubber uses ActivePure® Technology that sends scrubbing particles out into the air, cleaning it up to 99%.
THE BENEFITS OF THE AIR SCRUBBER BY AERUS
The Air Scrubber cleans the air 24/7, without you having to do anything at all once it's installed. When you install an Air Scrubber into your home or business, it will...
- Reduce bacteria, viruses, and VOCs in the air
- Reduce allergens, significantly helping people with seasonal breathing issues and asthma
- Reduce dust particles in the air, keeping the home and air cleaner
- Effective against MRSA, E. coli and other illness-causing bacteria and viruses
- Help reduce common sicknesses such as colds, coughs, and flu
- Reduction of respiratory illnesses
- Eliminates odors, particularly pet and smoke odors
- Promote overall wellness, better breathing, and better sleeping
THE AIR SCRUBBER REDUCES...
- Bacteria & Viruses
- Pet Odor
- Allergens & Asthma
Air filters are a standard in HVAC systems. You can slide it into your HVAC system and then replace it once every few months. This is important to make sure you are doing the minimum to keep the air clean, while also helping protect your HVAC system from these particles. The issue is, not every filter is great at catching smaller particles. That's why we recommend some of the higher-end filters, particularly from Aprilaire.
Here we have listed a few of their best filters. Usually, filters last for a few months, but these last longer, and work even better.
|Clean Air||Healthy Home||Odor Reduction||Allergy & Asthma|
|Vacuum & Dust Less Often||Removes Most Common Allergens||Removes Pet & Unwanted Odors||Capture Up to 96% of Virus-size Airborne Particles Passing Through the MERV 16 Filter|
|MERV 11||MERV 13||MERV 13 + Carbon||MERV 16|
WHAT IS MERV RATING?
You can see in the chart above, air filters have MERV ratings. Air filters range from 1-16 in MERV ratings. This is the measure of how efficient the filter is. The higher the rating, the smaller the particles your filter can catch. Aprilaire has designed different filters for different applications, ranging from 1-16.
According to the EPA, Minimum Efficiency Reporting Values (MERVs), report a filter’s ability to capture larger particles between 0.3 and 10 microns (µm).
- This value is helpful in comparing the performance of different filters
- The rating is derived from a test method developed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) [see www.ashrae.org].
As you can see, these ratings become a factor when it comes to what you want to install in your home, and what you will likely pay for it. The higher the MERV rating, the better the filter!
|MERV Rating||Averag Particles Size Efficiency in Microns|
|1-4||3.0 - 10.0 less than 20%|
|6||3.0 - 10.0 49.9%|
|8||3.0 - 10.0 84.9%|
|10||1.0 - 3.0 50% - 64.9%,
3.0 - 10.0 90% or greater
|12||1.0 - 3.0 80% - 89.9%,
3.0 - 10.0 90% or greater
|14||0.3 - 1.075% - 84%,
1.0 - 3.0 90% or greater
|16||0.3 - 1.075% or greater|
