Help Reduce Air Pollutants with an Air Filtration System in Columbia

Modern homes and commercial properties are designed with secure seals between indoor and outdoor air. While this is great for preventing HVAC losses, there are unintentional repercussions. Lacking access to clean outdoor air, your indoor air can become stuffed with microscopic pollutants as well as common debris including dust and hair. Dense concentrations of airborne particles may exacerbate respiratory problems and also make you sick! For genuinely clean, healthy indoor air, these pollutants should be extracted as much as possible.

Do You Need Dedicated Air Filtration?

EPA studies determined that pollutant levels indoors tend to be up to five times greater than outside, making an effective air filtration system an important tool when trying to decrease contamination levels. Environmental Systems Associates offers top-of-the-line filtration products ideal for attracting and capturing particulates like:

  • Dust, hair and soot
  • Pet dander
  • Allergens such as pollen
  • Mold and mildew spores
  • Viruses and bacteria
  • Smoke and odor particles
  • Volatile Organic Compounds such as chemical cleaners

Regional industries and potential health concerns can help determine which pollutants you’d benefit most from filtering out of your indoor air. As an example, a person with serious allergies would make reducing pollen or animal dander the top priority. Our indoor air quality services in [siteinfo field=”msa”] are tailored to help you understand what particulate matter you’re coping with.

HEPA Filters

Many air filtration systems incorporate what’s known as a High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter. Remember that many filters are structured similarly and sold as “HEPA-type” filters even though they don’t offer the same level of effectiveness. You should choose “True” or “Absolute” HEPA filters approved by air quality institutions.

With a thick network of extremely small fibers, HEPA filters capture airborne particles as they drift past. A few designs will use extra layers of filtration to prevent the central fiber layer from clogging up with larger materials such as hair and lint. One type, referred to as an activated carbon filter, has highly absorbent carbon pores to grab particles.

A small trade-off with HEPA filters is that the dense fibers can impede airflow, which could force your HVAC system to run longer to sustain your set temperatures. We can offer tailored advice on whether you would benefit from HEPA-level filtration.

Benefits of Air Filtration System Installation in Columbia

Environmental Systems Associates possesses a skilled team of air filtration system installers in Columbia. With their assistance, you can quickly secure stronger air filtration for a home or commercial property. Almost instantly, you can enjoy some or all of the following benefits:


Increased Indoor Air Quality

Air filtration systems help remove airborne contaminants including dust, pet dander and pollen from your indoor air. As one of the most likely reasons for poor air quality, reducing particulates and microorganisms is a core part of any IAQ strategy.


Extended HVAC System Life

Airborne debris overload the air filters built into HVAC systems, slowly forcing equipment to work harder and reducing its effectiveness. An air filtration system can even prolong the life of an HVAC system by decreasing the frequency of air filter replacements or maintenance needs like cleaning.


Smaller Energy Bills

A clogged, dirty HVAC system uses up more energy, increasing your energy costs. By keeping your HVAC system clean, you save money on all the monthly bills. If you can’t clean hard-to-reach spots like the air ducts, Environmental Systems Associates can provide comprehensive duct cleaning in Columbia.


Reduced Risk of Illness

A dedicated air filtration system can help minimize sickness-causing contaminants such as mold, mildew, viruses and bacteria. Pairing air filtration with other IAQ products such as a UV germicidal lamp is ideal for dealing with these microorganisms and help with reducing the risk of disease.

Clearly, an air filtration system is an excellent investment for those looking to help prevent airborne contamination from negatively affecting their health or HVAC equipment.
