Do you have allergies? High traffic in the home? Pets and odors? Then you need better filtration. Complete Comfort Air Conditioning and Heating offers our clients high-quality filtration options to meet your needs. We offer pleated filters that are MERV rating 8 or better. What is MERV? MERV is an acronym – Minimum efficiency reporting value, commonly known as MERV rating, is a measurement scale designed in 1987 by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers to rate the effectiveness of air filters. The human nose is equivalent of a MERV rating of 7. The MERV 8 is capable of capturing dust, pollen, spores, mold, and microorganisms. Highest level such as MERV 16 can also trap noxious gases, bacteria, and viruses. These aid in the control of odors. Filtration aids in the cleanliness of the ac system and your home's overall health.
By keeping out the particles, such as skin particles and dander, that mold and other biological organisms feed off of, we can prevent their growth altogether. Biological and algae growth can also lead to drain issues. Filters can be ordered to any custom size and MERV rating. Whole home filtration options are available. These cabinets that house a 5-inch pleated filter are installed in the return air system and can last up to one year. Filters with carbon are an excellent choice as well. If you can see through the filter such as a 30-day filter type, imagine all the particles that are just passing through. Here are some examples of proper filtration products.
