More recently we have seen an increase of poor air quality in our homes in the Wilmington area. This is no surprise though. As we seal our homes to keep in the warm and cool air from our HVAC systems, we are also sealing in contaminants in our air. These contaminants come from everyday activity, so it is essential to find a way to eliminate them. If not eliminated the contaminants can cause issues to your health as well as your home. By adding an air filtration system to your home, it can help eliminate airborne particles. While some air filtration systems work better than others, it really depends on the type of contaminates you are trying to eliminate.
HEPA Air Filtration
HEPA stands for high efficiency particulate air, so this air filtration system works by a mechanical air filter trapping particles. In most air purifiers you can find HEPA filters. This system is best for removing contaminants such as pollen, dust, and pet dander which are considered to be larger pollutants. Its efficiency is 99.97% when removing particles that are .3 micron in diameter and larger. When it comes to smaller air contaminants, other air filtration systems are more effective.
According to Trane, this air filtration system is “the world’s most effective whole-house air filtration system, removing up to 99.98% of airborne allergens, including bacteria and viruses down to .1 micron.” Compared to your standard 1” filter, Trane CleanEffects removes 100 times more airborne allergens. It is 8x more effective than the best HEPA room filter. With its innovated technology when you want the cleanest air in your home, this is your best choice for an air filtration system.
Some standard air cleaners while trying to collect the dust and dirt from the air will reduce the airflow causing a pressure drop. The Trane CleanEffects air filtration system has the lowest pressure drop with the highest efficiency. If you are interested in having a Trane CleanEffects installed in your home, be sure to contact O’Brien Service Company and we can set you up for a free in home estimate.

Overall both of these air filtration systems will help to eliminate contaminants from your air, to help you and your family breathe easy. If you think that you home could benefit from one of these systems please contact us for more information. (910) 799-6611
