The Stronger Air Filter May Not Be the Best Air Filter

Monday, July 16th, 2018

pleated-air-filterAir quality in homes is a growing concern today. Government studies have found that the air inside buildings, including residential ones, can be three to four times worse than the air outside. This goes against what most people think of when they think of “air pollution.” The reason for this spike in indoor air pollutants is that homes aren’t designed today for sufficient circulation of outdoor air. This helps to keep homes energy efficient (less heat gain in hot weather, less heat loss in cold weather), but it ends up trapping numerous pollutants generated indoors from household products, paint, varnish, cleaning supplies, and plain o’ dust and lint.

What can you do about this air quality trouble in your house? Air filters are a great start. And why not go out and get the strongest air filters to do the best job?

Indoor Air Quality Can Be a Serious Problem in Winter

Monday, January 16th, 2017

Question: Where is the air quality worse, outside a home or inside?

You’ll probably answer “outside,” since this is place people associate with pollution. But according to studies, the air quality inside a home (as well as other buildings) can be 3 to 4 times worse than the air outside! Why is this? It’s because a home has numerous sources of pollutants inside it. Just a short list: gas-using appliances, cosmetics, personal care products, hobby products, cleaning supplies, air fresheners, paint, varnish, and pressed wood products. Without any easy way for these contaminants to exit a home, they’ll soon start to build up.
