Today’s homes are so well insulated that they trap humidity and pollutants indoors. The contaminants in your home consist of bacteria and viruses, dust mites, animal dander if you have pets, volatile organic compounds which are gases released from household materials. Airborne particulates are measured in microns which are 1/25000 of an inch in size.
Most furnaces have a filter attached on the return air inlet. These are sufficient to protect the furnace and air conditioning system, but to improve the breathing quality of the air in the house, you should install cartridge filters. These filters are rated by how few particles are able to pass through them. The rating system is called the Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value or MERV. Improving the quality of the air you breathe in your home must be viewed as an investment in your family’s well-being.
