Air Duct Filter Installation
The air ducts in your home or commercial site circulate air between every room. They control the temperature and air quality in the property. Dirt, debris, even pet hair can get into the system and be transported around between rooms. Often causing irritation, as well as clogging up the system, air duct filters are a great way to prevent this from happening.
What are air duct filters?
Many different types of filters can be used in your air vent system. An excellent way to maintain good air quality throughout your property, they are a great investment for all sites, including both residential and commercial. Air duct filters are essentially a filter that sits between the vent itself and the rest of the system. They prevent any dust, debris, or allergens from passing out into the rooms of your property. Air duct filters come in an array of materials, some are washable and others need to be replaced every 12 months minimum. Use these brilliant additions to your HVAC or other airflow systems to reduce pollution in your home, and maximize the efficiency of systems.
Which filter to use
The main drawback of using filters in your air ducts is that it restricts airflow into the rooms of your property. Using a higher quality filter will reduce this obstruction, maintaining the benefits of filtering air whilst releasing more air into your property and keeping temperature controlled more effectively. Vent filters are ranked by a Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV), this needs to be between 6 and 8 to balance filtration and airflow well.
