What Are the Benefits of Having a Quality Air Filter?

Unless you’re Pig-Pen from the old Peanuts comics by Charles Schultz, you probably don’t want your home filled with particles of dirt, dust, and debris. We completely understand that here at One Hour, which is why we offer some of the highest quality products and services in the world of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. Whether you’re seeking heat pump services or higher-quality HVAC equipment in Montgomery County, PA, you do not have to look any further because our team provides both.

One of those products (which we’re going to cover today) is the air filter. Air filters ensure the air in your home is free from debris and dust particles so that you and your loved ones can breathe easy.

In this blog, we’re going to touch upon the benefits of having a quality air filter:

  • Keep air clean – This is probably pretty obvious, but it is also the single most important reason why people get air filters for their home. After all, who doesn’t want to breathe clean air? Air filters are designed to trap dust, particles, and other contaminants that you wouldn’t want to be circulating in your house, where it could affect you, your kids, or your pets.
  • Prevent allergies and illness – Some people in your home may suffer from allergies or be more susceptible to illnesses than others. If you can relate, you may want a higher quality air filter. Here at One Hour, we have plenty of great options, including high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters, UV lights, and electronic air cleaners. These have been used in hospitals for years, and they’ve only recently become inexpensive enough to be used in residential homes.
  • Save energy – On average, half of a building’s energy costs come from an HVAC system, and about 30% of the costs can be attributed to the air filtration system. When you choose a quality air filter, you’re also choosing an easy and effective way to save energy, and sometimes even lower your bills.

We also provide other services including furnace tune-ups in Churchville, PA, and the surrounding areas. To learn more about the benefits of quality air filters, you can give us a call at 215-960-9309.
