Cleansing the air that you breathe in your home is an admirable goal. However, too many homeowners fail to realize the fact that it is often more of a challenge than they first realize.

You are wiser still to contact the indoor air quality specialists that you can count on to install your air filtration system in Lemoore, CA properly, as well as to ensure that the appropriate equipment is installed. To do so, just call the pros here at Shaw’s Air Conditioning. Not only will we help you to determine how best to combat issue with your indoor air quality, but we’ll also make sure that your air filtration system is of the right efficiency for your needs.
As you likely – and hopefully – realize, as you should be replacing or cleaning it regularly, there is an air filter built into your HVAC system. If you think that this is enough to improve upon the quality of the air throughout your home, though, think again. This air filter is likely of a fairly low efficiency, designed primarily to protect your HVAC equipment itself, rather than to clean up the air that you breathe in your home. If you hope to effectively trap airborne pollutants which can wreak havoc on your indoor air quality, then you are wise to invest in more efficient air filters designed for that purpose.
It is important to keep in mind the fact, though, that overly efficient air filters are really no better than air filters which are not efficient enough. If your air filters are rated to low in their MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value), then they will allow a number of pollutants to pass through. However, those filters with MERV ratings beyond what you need and what your system can handle can have a number of negative impacts on your system and your heating and cooling budget. They may create too much airflow resistance in your system, making it difficult for your HVAC system to distribute conditioned air effectively. Plus, your system will have to fight harder than it should to force air through the filtration system, which can increase energy usage, running costs, and lead to unnecessary strain on your equipment.
That way, your system will surely be of the right efficiency and in prime working condition. Call now for more details.
