Air Filtration Options Offered by Service Today!

  • HEPA Filters: HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters can be installed as a part of your HVAC system, and may be used to power additional air cleaning devices. These powerful filters trap 99.97% of all particulates, keeping your air cleaner and allowing your HVAC system to function better. This technology is widely used by homeowners across the country, as well as in healthcare and medical environments.
  • Electrostatic Filters: Electrostatic filters are used in air purifiers and other devices to remove particulates from your home’s air. Unlike HEPA filters, which catch particles using a mesh trap, these filters charge unwanted particles and bind them together, thus removing them from your home’s air supply. These filters can get rid of up to 97% of airborne particulates, and while they can become less efficient over time, they tend to be less restrictive to airflow than HEPA filters, and may also improve HVAC efficiency.
  • Ionizers/Ozone Generators: Rather than filtering particulates from your air, ionizers and ozone generators produce an electrical charge to reduce the amount of allergens and pollutants in your air supply. While ozone generators tend to be better for getting rid of odors, ionizers may be more effective at reducing dust, allergens, pet dander, mold spores, and even some germs and bacteria.
  • UV Air Purifiers: Speaking of bacteria and germs, if you want a comprehensive option for removing biological contaminants from your air, you may want to consider purchasing a UV air purifier. These devices use ultraviolet light to kill mold, mildew, bacteria, viruses, and more, neutralizing threats in your home’s ductwork and sanitizing the air throughout your property.
