Many homeowners today are worried about the quality of the air that circulates through the HVAC system and then around the rooms of their houses. They have good reason for concern: the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has determined that poor indoor air quality is a leading health threat in the country.
There are many ways to eliminate dust, dirt, pollen, dander, dust mites, and other pollutants from your house. But the most straightforward method—and often the most effective—is to use mechanical air filtration systems.

Finding the Air Filters That Are Right for Your Minneapolis Home
Air filtration systems work on the simple principle of trapping airborne contaminants in a mesh of fibers as air flows through them. But you cannot simply select any air filter and expect it to work. Air filters come with difference efficiency ratings, called their MERV rating (minimum efficiency reporting value). The higher the MERV rating, the smaller particles the filter traps.
If you go for the strongest MERV rating you can find, you will probably end up damaging your air conditioner and/or heater. A filter that thick will cut off the airflow, impairing comfort and forcing the HVAC system strain too hard. Turn to a professional to locate the right type of filter to match your needs without negatively affecting your comfort system.
What You Can Expect from an Air Filtration System
When you have the right set of filters professionally integrated into your HVAC system, you’ll have most particles down to 0.3 microns in size trapped and removed from the airflow. Here are only a few of the pollutants that an effective filter will cleanse from your air:
- Sawdust and construction debris
- Pet dander
- Dust mite debris (a leading cause of allergies and asthma)
The most powerful filters can also affect bacteria, but these are not usually suited for residential HVAC systems. Filters usually cannot stop the movement of chemical fumes, smoke, viruses, or odor molecules. If your home suffers from these IAQ troubles, your specialists will pair the filters with the right type of electronic air purifier.
