What Is an Air Filtration System?
An air filtration system is essentially a finely woven fiber mesh, which is stretched over a plastic or metal frame and installed in the ducts in your home. As air flows through the mesh, any contaminants that it carries become snared in the filter. The filter has no way to get rid of the contaminants that it captures, so it will need to be cleaned every few months. However, the system provides many benefits. Unlike other air purifier systems, air filters don’t need to draw power in order to operate. They have also proven effective at removing a wide range of contaminants from indoor air.
MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. It is the system by which all air filtration systems are rated, according to how finely they are woven. The higher a filter’s MERV rating is, the more closely it is woven and the more contaminants it can capture. It is important to note, however, that the more closely a filter is woven the harder it is for air to be forced through it. Some air filters are designed for extremely sensitive environments, like server rooms and hospitals. These filters should not be used in residential homes, as the average climate control system is not strong enough to circulate air through them. As always, though, you should consult with a professional before making any final decision. You want to get a filtration system that protects you from a wide range of contaminants, but can also work properly with your HVAC systems.
