Can you really tell the difference in air quality when you replace your air filter?

Regularly replacing your HVAC system’s air filters can make a difference in the quality of the air you and your family breathe in your home. By using a medium to high efficiency air filter and replacing it regularly (according to the manufacturer’s instructions), you can reduce some airborne particles, improving the quality of the air in your home. And yes, if you forget to replace your air filters as needed, you may notice more dust accumulating on your household surfaces or your allergies might start acting up. Still many standard HVAC air filters don’t perform as well as you might think in cleaning your air. So, can you really tell the difference in air quality when you replace your air filter?

All air filters aren’t created equal

Some air filters are better than others at filtering out various particles. Air filters come with a MERV rating (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value). Filters with a low MERV rating (4 or less) will help protect your air conditioner, but don’t actually do much in the way of cleaning the air. The EPA recommends air filters with a MERV between 7-13 for removing smaller particles that may trigger allergies.

Taking clean air to the next level

If you’re worried that your air filters aren’t doing enough to clean the air in your home, the Air Scrubber by Aerus is a whole home air purifying system that installs directly into your existing HVAC system. Using the proprietary Active Pure® system, the Air Scrubber is proven highly effective at removing 99% of all surface and airborne contaminants including VOCs, odors, dust, pet dander, mold, fungi and other allergens or asthma triggers.

Protecting your family’s health

Additionally, the Air Scrubber can help eliminate your family’s exposure to harmful viruses and bacteria. It is the only air purifier scientifically proven to reduce the COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) novel coronavirus on surfaces. During recent testing conducted by one of the world’s top biosafety testing facilities, the NASA-based air purifying technology inactivated over 99.9% of highly concentrated airborne SARS-CoV-2 virus in an enclosed setting in just 3 minutes, below detectable levels. You want your home to be a clean and safe environment for family and friends to gather – the Air Scrubber can protect your home and give you peace of mind.

A breath of fresh air

Nothing is more important that the air we breathe. Clean air can make you feel better, avoid illness, and live longer. Still, indoor air quality can quickly deteriorate as we use household chemicals, spread germs, and track in pollen or other allergens from the outside. To ensure your indoor air is clean and safe, first, be sure to regularly swap out your air filters. For an easy and convenient way to remember to change your air filters on time, order them through our online store and auto-schedule them to be delivered directly to your home on a regular basis.
