Indoor Air Quality
INDOOR AIR QUALITY
Choosing the right type of air filter can make a big difference in your indoor air quality and in your equipment. A good way of choosing the right filter is by following the MERV Rating.
Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) is a standard that rates the overall effectiveness of air filters. Higher value MERV rating equates to finer filtration, meaning fewer dust particles and other airborne contaminants can pass through the filter.
Benefits of choosing the right Air filter
It will keep your blower wheel clean.
It will keep unwanted dust from building up on your blower motor.
It keeps the evaporator coil and secondary heat exchanger (if applicable) from matting over with dirt, debris, etc.
It keeps the ductwork free of buildup that is resistant to air-flow while cleaning the air you breathe
A clogged filter will overheat your gas furnace repeatedly thus wearing safety devices and motors out prematurely. Overly dirty or blocked paths of air flow will either cause your gas furnace to work harder, over-heat, in-efficiently heat or breakdown.
An air scrubber is a filtration system that gets rid airborne particles and improves the air quality. An Air Scrubber is installed in the duct work so each time you use your heating and air conditioning system the Air Scrubber cleans your air!
Failure to properly clean the air can ultimately lead to health issues, lower air quality, and higher remediation costs, which is why having an air scrubber is extremely important.
Electronic Air filter
An electronic air filter cleans catches the particles that travel through the duct system and prevent these particles to spread disease throughout your home.
With an electronic air filter, there are no filters to replace with that, just periodic cleanings of the electronic cells to achieve maximum particle capture.
Quick Solutions that can save you a lot of Money!
Did you know that by installing a Nest thermostat and an attic fan you could save on energy consumption by up to 30 percent of your Air Conditioning Bill?
What makes most smart thermostats so "smart" is that they learn from your behaviors, allow you to control the climate in your home remotely and can even adjust themselves based on ambient conditions like humidity.
Some smart thermostats like Nest track your energy usage and presents it to you in an easy-to-read monthly report. This report tells you how much energy you used compared to other users, and reward you for using energy-efficient settings.
Did you know that Southern California Edison and SoCalGas will give eligible customers up to $125 to sign up for Rush Hour Rewards, a service from Nest that helps you use less energy during peak hours?
An Attic fan can reduce attic temperatures by allowing cooler outside Air replace the excessively hot air inside your attic. With a cooler attic, your air conditioner can run more efficiently and could reduce energy costs by up to 30 percent.
