What You Should Know about Air Filtration and Air CleaningIf 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.

When you're in the market for a new HVAC system, look for one that has an electronically commutated motor (ECM) outfitted for variable speeds as part of the furnace or air conditioner. These motors offer significant advantages over permanent split capacitor (PSC) motors because they use less electricity, run more quietly and adapt their speeds to conditions in your home. Also known as a variable-speed blower motor, an ECM with a motor controller can operate at whatever speed is needed to meet the conditioning needs of your home and the specific airflow and filtering factors in your HVAC system. For example, if your air filter is dirty, a variable-speed ECM will ramp up its speed to compensate for the restricted airflow.

"Tech was polite, professional, knowledgeable and worked quickly to resolve the issue with my furnace. I inquired about the root cause of this recurring problem and he kindly explained what was occurring to prevent the furnace from igniting, and what he had done to resolve the current issue, which I appreciated very much! As always, I remain a happy Hartman Bros. customer!"
