Air Cleaners & Filtration in St. Louis

Air Cleaners & Filtration in St. Louis. Take a second to think about how much time you spend indoors. Even the most “outdoorsy” St. Louis resident spends a large chunk of our time inside, and it is estimated that the average American spends up to 90% of their time indoors!

With indoor air estimated to contain two to five times the concentration levels of certain air pollutants than outdoor air, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rates indoor air quality (IAQ) as one of the top environmental health risks facing Americans. While eliminating the source of pollution and ventilating your St. Louis home are the best ways to fight indoor air quality problems, they are often not enough.

Dust, pollen, mold, bacteria, and pet dander can be found in any St. Louis home, no matter how careful you are or how airtight your home is. If you can remove these particles, you remove the common triggers for symptoms like:

  • Dry eyes
  • Sinus irritation (congestion, postnasal drip, sneezing)
  • Frequent headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Coughing or wheezing

Understanding Air Cleaners in St. Louis

Living in a healthier home here in Overland, Richmond Heights, St. Louis, University City, Webster Groves, and beyond means breathing cleaner air through better air filtration and purification. Here is what you need to know about the pollution in your own home, and how the filters in your heating and cooling system can reduce the allergy-like symptoms you experience at St. Louis home.

Air cleaners use a filter to remove contaminants from the air. These filters are rated on what is called the MERV scale. The higher the MERV value, the smaller the particles the filter can remove. Air cleaners with MERV ratings of 12-15 will remove particles as small as 0.3 microns from the air in your home, producing exceptionally clean air. Installing an air cleaner in your St. Louis home’s existing HVAC system will remove particles like:

  • Mold, mildew, or fungus
  • Bacterias and viruses
  • Pet dander
  • Dust mites
  • Pollen
  • Dust, soil, ash

Regularly replacing the air filters in your St. Louis heating and cooling system is essential to maintaining both the health and the overall efficiency of your house. If an air cleaner is improperly installed, or air filters are not replaced to manufacturer specifications, it can make it much harder for your furnace or air conditioner in St. Louis to get the air it needs to keep your home at the perfect temperature. This results in higher heating and cooling bills, and can reduce the overall comfort of your home.
