IMPROVE YOUR INDOOR AIR
When it comes to the quality of air you breathe indoors; where we spend approximately 90% of our time, it is extremely important to address the following factors...
Relative Humidity levels indoors is highly one of the keys to improve IAQ. Some of this factors are: Under-sized or Over-sized Air Conditioning Systems, poor or no maintenance, these can lead in very low or very high ""unsafe"" humidity levels into your residence or business.
Incorporating filtered outdoor clean air-to residential and commercial buildings, reduces the concentration of various chemicals produced by furniture materials, cleaning chemicals, Carbon desoxide and other contaminates.
A good ventilation system, helps replace contaminated-saturated indoor air with fresher. Many strategies can be used to improve indoor air quality and mitigate negative effects. Keeping your Home and Business properly ventilated is essential to improve Indoor Air Quality.
Keep your place ventilated... Air it out!

Air Filters are designed to keep your indoor air flowing cleanly and efficiently. These is an affordable way to improve the air quality indoors. As the name suggested, they help filtering your Home and Business air. And at the same time, improving the performance of your HVAC system.
Air Filter Performance
A helpful way to evaluate a filter performance, meaning its ability to capture different size particles, is to look for the MERV rating.
What's an air filter MERV rating?
Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, (MERV). Is a score developed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). MERV value ranges from (1 to 16)*. The highest the MERV value, the better the filter is at trapping specific types of particles.
(ASHRAE) Air Conditioning Engineers currently recommend using a filter rated MERV 13 or higher. However, If MERV 13 or better cannot be accommodated in your system or produces too much air flow restriction through the HVAC system, then go with the highest MERV ranked filter your machine can accommodate.
Technical note: Before upgrading for a different MERV rating, you may consult with an HVAC expert.
*MERV higher than 16, are denominated HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters.
FOR LONGER FILTRATION TIMES-RUN THE A/C SYSTEM AS MUCH AS PRACTICAL. The filter, does not work unless the air flows through it. * Setting the thermostat for MODE; "FAN ON" - "RECIRCULATING" or having a-variable speed ac system-will help extending the air filtration time.
