Indoor Air Quality

A healthy home starts with healthy air


There may be more in your home than you know. In fact, the air inside your home can be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside. Because while today’s better insulated homes do a great job of keeping out the elements, they also hold in airborne particles that can aggravate breathing difficulties.

So, if healthy air is a concern for your family the standard one inch furnace filters from the hardware store just don’t cut it. They pretty much only filter out the larger particles in the air in order to protect your furnace, but they allow the vast majority of airborne particles such as dust, pollen, pet dander, dust mites, mildew, lint, fungus, tobaccos smoke, and cooking grease to circulate through your home unfiltered. The graphic below illustrates how much more effective high efficiency filters are at filtering out even the smallest of particles while still allowing for maximum airflow. This is referred to as the Clean Air Delivery rate.


Fortunately, at Absolute Air we offer a variety of whole-home air filters, air purifiers, and humidifiers to dramatically improve the air quality in your home. Call us today and we’ll help you select the perfect indoor air quality system for your home.
