If you think that flimsy air filter in your furnace is going to clean your home's indoor air this winter or even next summer, think again. For comprehensive air cleaning in an indoor environment, a very high-efficiency air filter or a dedicated air-cleaning system is needed, or both. A standard furnace or HVAC filter won't remove anything but the largest particles from the air, allowing smaller particulates such as mold spores, bacteria, dust mites and pollen to pass through the filter and enter household air.
Home air quality is a big issue among homeowners. For people with allergies, having clean air in the home is even more important. Putting an effective air filtering system to work in your home – either as part of a dedicated air cleaner or high-efficiency HVAC filter – can pull irritants out of indoor air and help to reduce symptoms suffered from fall allergies.
