When I look over the topics I often write about for my blog, one that pops up often is “air filters.” When people hear about air filters, they usually think about the air filters that are already part of their HVAC system. These are important filters, but you need to know that they aren’t there to improve indoor air quality. These filters do the job of stopping dust, lint, and other debris from getting into the HVAC system and damaging the heating system, air conditioner, and blower.
You can also have special filters installed into your HVAC system that remove pollutants from the air that surrounds you in your house. These filters are highly effective at keeping dust, pet dander, pollen, mold, and mildew spores from circulating through the air and they are much more powerful than the standard furnace filter.
There’s no single kind of air filter. You have several options when it comes to types of filters, and in this post I’m going to look over several of the different kinds.
