Advanced Air Filtration | Heating and Air Conditioning

Everyone wants to breathe cleaner air,and indoor air has a significant impact on our health. According to theEPA, the indoor air we breathe is up to five times more polluted than outdoorair. This is due to modern homes being tightly insulated and sealed to providegreater energy efficiency. Cypress Heating and Air Conditioning NATE certifiedprofessionals’ can provide clean indoor air without sacrificing the energyefficiency of the heating and air conditioning system. Advanced airfiltration is one of the solutions we offer for healthier air.

A high quality electrostatic filter or a HEPAfilter can improve your air quality significantly. The air circulatingthrough your home passes through the air filter where contaminates are trappedand is redistributed throughout the entire home.

Electrostatic Filtration

Electrostaticfilters are one type of advanced air filtration thatis manufactured with charged material that attracts air particles with an oppositecharge. This enables the filter to capture a much larger range and amount ofparticulates. Electrostatic filters also capture pollutants such as allergens,smoke, and bacteria.

Electrostaticfilters, which use static electricity to draw pollutants, become less efficientas the filter becomes saturated with pollutants. For this reason, replace/cleanthem on a regular basis, ensuring higher efficiency for your filter, optimalperformance for your heating and air conditioning system, and higher airquality for your home.

HEPA Filtration

Anotherhighly efficient advanced air filtration is the HEPA filter. HEPAfilters trap up to 99.97% of all airborne particulates as small as 0.3 microns.This includes a wide range of microscopic pollutants, including dust particles,dust mites, mold spores, tobacco smoke, pet dander, pollen, bacteria, and someviruses.

HEPA filtersare commonly used in hospitals, labs, sickrooms, and fin homes. Likeelectrostatic filters, HEPA filters require routine replacement for the bestperformance, and the highest possible air quality.

High quality air filters providecleaner air and the added benefit of maintaining a cleaner heating and airconditioning system. This in turn, reduces the need for heating and airconditioning repair in Katy. Remember to check the air filteroften, and replace as necessary. In addition, homeowner’s should recognize thatnot all HVAC systems are designed for the use of a HEPA filter. HEPAfiltration is dense, and requires a system designed for it. Use of HEPAfiltration in a system not designed for it may result in premature wear andtear on the system with the need for heating and air conditioning repair.

In additionto HEPA filters, we also offer UV air purifiers and air exchangers.When your goal is cleaner air, Cypress Heating and Air Conditioningprofessionals will provide the clean air, and the quality you need.

Humidifiers 

Dehumidifiersand humidifiers are an additional means ofimproving indoor air quality. Excessive humidity can worsen the symptomsfor those with asthma, allergies and other respiratory illness. A whole-housedehumidifier provides relief throughout the home. Dust mites, and mold thrivein high humidity. A dehumidifier can provide a relative humidity below 50%,depriving mold, dust mites and other contaminants of the environment they need.

On the otherhand, during the winter additional humidification added to dry furnace air canbe beneficial by increasing your comfort, while reducing your susceptibility toillness.

Lowerhumidity in the winter causes the nasal passages and skin to dry out, leavingyou more vulnerable to respiratory illness such as colds and the flu, bloodynoses, sore throats, static electricity, and dry, itchy skin.
