High Efficiency Filters

Why Upgrade My Air Filter?

For your family’s health

Most heating and cooling systems still use a basic air filter. These filters were originally designed to protect the equipment and not the people served by the equipment. The average air filter is only capable of removing 3–5% of the particles that pass through it. Today, however, there are several types of permanent air filters available in various efficiencies that can help you filter the air in your home. If you suffer from allergies, asthma, hay fever or other breathing difficulties, there is an air filter that can help you. We can even provide you with the same type of air filter used in hospital operating rooms.

What does MERV Ratings mean to me and why are they important?
Allergies are more widespread than most people realize—conservative estimates suggest that over 35 million Americans suffer from allergies. This number is likely much, much higher because some allergic reactions are so common and consistent that many sufferers perceive them as “normal.”

Allergies are simply adverse immune system reactions to substances that are harmless to most people. Common substances include:
  • Dust mites
  • Dust
  • Pollen
  • Mold and mildew
  • Pet dander
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other chemicals
Allergic reactions take on many forms—ranging from mild to severe—and can occur virtually anywhere in the body. Common allergic reactions include:
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Asthma
  • Ecxcema—an inflammation of the skin
  • Rhinitis—an inflammation of the nasal mucous membranes
  • Allergic conjunctivitis—watery eyes

None of these reactions should ever be considered normal. Many options exist to help alleviate these conditions — and your misery. Depending on your allergy — different products may be recommended. One of the best solutions for most homes is an Aprilaire Whole-Home Air Cleaner. These Air Cleaners can capture and eliminate airborne dust, pollen, mold spores, pet dander, dust mites and more, making it a tough ally in your fight against allergies.
