Air Filtration System Services in Westchester County, NY
Every air conditioning and heating system in Westchester County, NY has an air filter, which is designed to catch any dust or errant particles in the air. It’s a slick system, since it helps you keep the air clean just by running your AC. But those filters can be augmented by a number of means, either by adding a more powerful filter or by upgrading to a full-bore air purifier to electronically screen the passing air.

Do I Need an Air Filtration System?
Every Westchester County household can benefit from an air filtration system, but some households are more sensitive than others. For example, you may have a family member suffering from asthma, or maybe you’ve welcomed a new baby into the home. In those cases, you’re going to want something more than the basic filter, and perhaps even an electronic filter as well. Even if your family doesn’t have such concerns, you should change your filter at least once every 2 or 3 months and more often if you can manage it. Call Yost & Campbell Heating, Cooling & Generators today and we’ll help you discuss your options.
Better Basic Filters
Filters are rated by their MERV rating, which stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. It’s simply a number, between 1 and 20, measuring the filter’s effectiveness. The higher the rating, the more effectively it filters out dust and debris. Basic filters on your air conditioner usually have a low MERV rating. If you’re serious about screening the air in your home, look into a HEPA filter, which stands for high efficiency particulate air filters. They’re guaranteed to screen out at least 99.97% of airborne particles, making them one of the most effective means of air filtration you can find in Westchester County. You can often feel the difference, and when coupled with regular changing or cleaning, it can demonstrably reduce the contaminants in your air.
Look into Electronic Air Cleaners
As effective as they are, regular filters can still let tiny particles through, and again, for those with sensitive family members, that may not be enough. Luckily, there’s an even more effective kind of air purification you should look for. Electronic air purifiers work by ionizing the particles, which pulls them out of the air and causes them to stick to the plates of a collection pan. No particle, no matter how small, can escape the process, and while the collection pan needs to be cleaned and replaced on a regular basis, the protection it affords is second to none.
