Air Filtration Systems and Air Purifiers
Homeowners today are often aware that they aren’t necessarily getting the best quality in their household air. Unfortunately, many particles circulate through the HVAC system of the typical home, such as dust, dander, lint, pollen, smoke, dust mites, microbes, and bacteria. These contaminants lower indoor air quality and can be a serious problem for people with asthma and allergies.
There are a number of methods to improve a home’s indoor air quality, but the job usually starts with installing air filters and air purifiers. You’ll need the assistance of professionals for proper air filtration and purification, and you only need to look to Happy Heating & Cooling to schedule the work.

Basics of Excellent Air Filtration
Air filters are the first step toward improving indoor air quality. An air filtration system consists of a set of media filters, usually made of fiberglass weaves or pleated polyester. Filters come in different strengths, which is measured as Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value or MERV. High MERV isn’t a guarantee of performance for your home, however, since too strong a filter will block airflow and damage the HVAC system. Allow our experts to match your HVAC system and filtration needs with the correct set of air filters.
Air Purification for More Air Cleaning Power
In some situations, air filters may be sufficient to stop the unwanted particles moving through the air. But smaller contaminants such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), smoke, and chemicals can move through many filters—and the high MERV filters often aren’t an option. This is where electronic air purifiers are helpful.
There are many different ways for air purifiers to remove contaminants from the air, with ionizers the most common. Purifiers don’t use mesh to catch particles, but rather use electric fields that ionize unwanted contaminants and then draw them out of the air.
The UV Air Purifier
There’s a special type of air purification system that targets some of the most unhealthy and difficult to catch air pollutants, such as bacteria, mold spores, viruses, and microbes. It’s a UV air purifier, which uses ultraviolet radiation to kill or render inert harmful organic contaminants.
A UV air purifier is basically a set of ultraviolet lights, known as UV germicidal lights, placed in the HVAC system so they shine on the coil of the air conditioner or heat pump. The lights disrupt the cells of the organic pollutants, but are harmless for humans and pets.
