Protect Your Home’s HVAC System With A 3 or 5 Stage Electrostatic Air Filter

An electrostatic air filter works by creating a static charge as air flows through it and trapping dust and other particles in the filter by attracting them with the electrostatic force.   Because the fibers the filter is made out of naturally create the static charge, you aren’t paying extra to charge the filters.

Electrostatic filters are reusable and can be taken out and vacuumed or washed, dried, and then re-installed in the HVAC system. All of the filters come with a lifetime warranty.  Electrostatic filters are extremely effective at cleaning dust, pollen, bacteria, fungi, molds, and other contaminants out of the air, and are up to ten times better at filtration than comparable fiberglass disposable filters.

The electrostatic filters are available with either three-stage or five-stage filtration. The three stage filter has two layers of woven monofilament polypropylene and a core of non woven polyester.  The five-stage filters have five layers of monofilament polypropylene with anti-microbial VIBAX-MI50 to help in the eradication of molds, mildews, and bacteria.

These filters are built to stand up to multiple cleanings and are on a rust-resistant aluminum frame.

The air quality in your home is important for respiratory health and the reduction of dust, but it is also just as important for the service life of your HVAC system.  With a good filter, you can keep dust, dirt, and other debris from clogging up the coil in your HVAC system, potentially extending its lifetime.

Washable air filter – Don’t let summer dust affect your home

This summer season is like every other in that our homes see increased amounts of dust. The increased intensity of the summer sun dries the outdoor landscape which can make the topsoil become airborne. Plant and tree material also dries over the course of the summer forming tiny particles which can become airborne as well. All these dust particles enter our homes continuously when doors are opened, on us, our pets and from air leaks within the home’s structure.

Many consumers do not realize how much dust is actually in their home or the negative effects it can have on the home and our health. Symptoms of excess dust include breathing problems, sneezing, itchy eyes, itchy skin and coughing. Some of the symptoms might just be passed over as seasonal allergies or a common cold. It is ideal to filter out this dust so that you and your pets can break easy.

Your home’s heating and air conditioning filter is an ideal solution to combat the summer dust problem. It utilizes a filter to remove any particles of a particular size as the air is forced through into the system. The problem is that standard filters miss a lot of the smallest particles and become clogged quickly. This results in a less performance from your systems and decreased filtering.

A washable air filter is an ideal solution as they can be used over and over again by simply washing off the debris. Models such as those by BoAir can filter up to ten times for dust than a traditional filter. This can improve allergy symptoms, breathing problems as well as prolong the life of your cooling system. Consumers also save money by never have to buy a costly disposable filter again.

Schools Can Save Money with a Switch to Permanent Air Filters

All around the country, school budgets are under the microscope in order to stretch the dollar a little farther.

More than ever, it is important for maintenance departments to evaluate their spending so that students don’t pay the price for a shortfall in funding. Installing permanent air filters in all the schools will not only save money, but offer many other benefits.

Because schools districts are responsible for heating and cooling large buildings, the systems must be constantly evaluated and maintained.

Save Money This Summer With a Permanent AC Filter

The heat of summer is quickly approaching in many areas, which leaves many homeowners fearful of how much money they will have to spend this year on air conditioning their home. What you may be surprised to learn, is how much you and your family can save by using a permanent ac filter in your air conditioning unit. These ac filters provide many benefits over traditional disposable filters, which can save you a great deal of money. Here are just a few of the money saving benefits they provide.

They Are Easily Cleaned

It is estimated that having a clean air conditioning filter can save you up to 5 percent on your air conditioning bills each month, which is a great deal of money considering how expensive summer electricity bills can be. However, with traditional air filters, this would mean spending money on replacing a dirty filter fairly frequently. With permanent filters on the other hand, you can simply remove and clean your air filter every few weeks. This will help to ensure that your air filter is as clean as possible, and that you will be able to pay as little as possible to cool your home.

Permanent AC Filters Are More Efficient

Not only do permanent air conditioning filters save you money by being easier to clean, but they also work more efficiently to begin with.  This will help to alleviate the amount of work your AC system has to put into keeping your home cool, which will help to keep your summer energy bills as low as possible.

Switching the filter in your air conditioning unit to a permanent air filter can save you substantially on your energy bills this summer. With how expensive it is to keeps one’s home cool during the summer months, this switch could be highly beneficial to you and your family.

A Permanent Electrostatic Air Filter Offers Key Health Benefits

Germs only have mobility if they can hitch a ride on dust or other airborne particles. These particles are an inevitable part of daily life; they come from sources such as dirt, pollen, pet dander, mold, mildew and smoke. When you consider that you breathe in an estimated 250 cubic feet of air in your lungs during a 12-hour period, the opportunity for germ-laden air to get to your lungs is virtually unlimited.

Dedicated efforts to keep your home clean can only offer a partial solution. It has been estimated that such cleaning is only about 30-35 percent efficient, in part because dust and other super-fine particles are often merely stirred up and displaced from one spot in the home to another.

A Superior Air Filtration Solution

A permanent electrostatic air filter works to clear the air that you’ll breathe into your lungs around-the-clock. When you are cooking, playing, relaxing or sleeping in your home, your electrostatic filter works tirelessly on your behalf. If anyone in your household faces seasonal allergies, grant them some much-deserved relief with such a permanent filter.

Improve Productivity

Better health in the home can also translate into improved productivity at work. It’s been estimated that, on average, an employee loses about one day of work every month to indoor air-related illness. Over time, an estimated one in five workers experiences a major illness due to problematic indoor air quality. More severe allergies, asthma, and even autoimmune disorders may hinder a person’s productivity and overall quality of life.

There is little doubt that much is at stake when it comes to the quality of the air that you and your family breathe in your home each and every day. A permanent electrostatic air filter can represent a big step in the quest for clean, healthy air in your home. For more information about the benefits of these advanced filters, please contact us.

As spring and summer come the temps are sure to rise and that means your air conditioner will once again be called upon to keep your home comfortable. Homeowners should perform maintenance on it before they turn it on to ensure it functions properly and to prevent damage.

During the time your air conditioner is not working there is much that can happen. The outside unit should be inspected to ensure it is free of debris. It is also beneficial that any indoor components are cleaned to remove any dirt, dust and debris buildup. The air filter needs to be inspected to ensure proper air flow which can affect the performance and even result in damage if too clogged.

Homeowners have alternatives to the standard disposable ac filters that become costly throughout the lifetime of the unit. A washable ac filter is an ideal investment that is sure to save money as it will never have to be replaced. Electrostatic filters produced from such manufacturers as BoAir attract particles which are firmly held to the filter. They offer low air resistance as well as much improved filtering over standard filters removing up to 25 times more than standard filters.
