Improve Your Home Air Quality Using Activated Carbon Air FIlters

Carbon Air Filter | Duraflow IndustriesWith our modern lifestyle keeping us inside more than ever, it is important for our health that the air we breath is of good quality. Without air filtration, the levels of organic compounds and inorganic gases in our home’s air may become concerning. We may begin to ask ourselves, how can we improve our indoor air quality?

Substances in unfiltered air within our homes may pose serious health risks if breathed over long periods of time. But what makes activated carbon air filters superior than other options, and what are the benefits of using a carbon air filter?
 

1. Improved health


There is a lot of stray particles and irritants in the air around us. If we are to feel our best, it is important that these substances are removed. Dust, pollen, mold, pet hair and dander, or other allergens that can have a large enough influence on the body to begin to make you feel dizzy and fatigued. It is important that any air filter be of high enough quality to remove these allergens can show significant improvements in health.
 

2. Engineered for superior air quality


Activated carbon air filters are engineered to disallow complex chemical impregnation and remove harmful organic compounds. Carbon in the filter is activated by treating it with oxygen, creating a uniquely porous surface, not unlike a sponge-type structure. This material improves the filter's ability to sufficiently purify air.
 

3. Chemical layers for acidic and alkali substances


Removing acidic and alkali substances from the air can prove to be impossible for air filters of lesser quality, making any extra cost well worth the money. Removing these more complicated substances requires a chemical blend to be applied to the air filter. Not only is activated carbon a good medium for removing organic compounds, but it also serves as an excellent substrate for these chemical applications.
 

4. High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) quality air filtration


These filters make so much of a difference that they are used as the basis for HEPA air filters, which are trusted as a de facto choice for medical environments. Not only can they significantly reduce the negative substances found in cigarette smoke, they can also be used to trap different viruses and bacteria.
 

5. Chemical considerations


Beyond just acidic and alkali substances, and organic compounds, activated carbon air filters can also be used to reduce or eliminate airborne chemicals like ammonia. These chemical substances can have a very detrimental effect on the human body and its respiration system. If these substances are not removed from the air you breath, it can result in a number of ailments, and prolonged exposure can create significant health problems.

For some, being indoors during allergy season is a safe haven. But, what do you do when your allergies are triggered by the dust and dirt in your own home? Or if your air conditioner isnt filtering out the outdoor allergens? Using a HEPA filter is one of the most common types of filters that can prevent your allergies from flaring up, but do they really work? This article will find out if HEPA filters are better than regular filters, and whether HEPA filters really work. What is a HEPA Filter? A HEPA filter is a high-efficiency particulate air filter. It is a mechanical air filter, and uses fine mesh to trap all the particles it encounters. HEPA filters will trap pollens, dander, tobacco smoke, and dust mites. They come with different types of vacuums, and can be used for other devices in the home. Does a HEPA Filter Really Work? HEPA filters have been shown to work effectively, especially for those that suffer from allergies. Combining HEPA filters with effective ways to get rid of

Possibly the most critical part of your homes heating and air conditioning system is the air filter. Every hour while your air conditioning is running, all the air in your house will cycle through the system at least once, and maybe twice. All of it passes through a filter each time. That filter acts as the main line of defense against contamination for everyone living there. Many homeowners dont fully understand the importance of this particular piece of their house. They might replace it once or twice a year and otherwise never think about it. If that sounds like you, then your family and the machinery that keeps your home comfortable could unfortunately be at serious risk. What are the risks of a neglected air filter? Disease, for one, since a clogged filter wont be able to remove any more harmful bacteria and other contaminants from the air in the house. A clogged filter that gets wet for any reason can even foster the growth of molddifficult to remove, and a household health disaster. Another

If youre looking to renovate your home or build a new one, its important to understand a critical component of its structure: ventilation. The system in which air flows through your home is known as whole-house ventilation, which uses fans to exchange outdoor with indoor air and aims to improve air quality. It helps reduce the amount of contaminants found in indoor air and control the humidity in your home, which can be extremely beneficial for your quality of living. There are three basic types of whole-house mechanical ventilation, and by understanding each you can choose the best one for you. 1. Exhaust-only ventilation This ventilation type uses a fan to move indoor air out of your home, while outdoor air is drawn in through leaks. Some benefits of this type include the low costs of installation and maintenance, but there are also several drawbacks. For one, exhaust-only ventilation can draw contaminants into your home from areas such as an attic or crawlspace, and could also move
