Why install a Whole-Home Air Filtration System?

The Environmental Protection Agency reports that indoor air pollution is one of the top risks to homeowners today. Indoor particles such as dust, pollen, mildew, and bacteria can lead to asthma and allergy attacks. Grayson Homes utilizes mechanical ventilation in all its homes to help minimize these risks. For the ultimate protection to indoor air pollution, ask Grayson Homes about installing a whole-home air purification system. These systems are connected to a high efficiency HVAC system, making the indoor air in our homes cleaner and more comfortable than homes built using traditional methods.

Air purifiers do exactly what their name suggests: remove impurities from indoor air. Most builders rely on the filters found in air returns to clean the air in their homes. Homeowners may take it a step further by using plug in air cleaners in certain rooms. Neither of these solutions is desirable because they are inefficient and ineffective at removing most of the impurities found in the home.

We can install an AccuClean whole-home air filtration system by American Standard to greatly reduce the indoor air pollutants typically found in the home. An AccuClean system is able to remove up to 99.98% of unwanted particles and allergens from the air that home occupants breathe in by utilizing a filter that traps particles smaller than .1 micron. To better understand the significance of this, dust, mold and bacteria are usually .3 micron in size. That makes them so microscopic that 2 million of them could fit on the period at the end of this sentence. An AccuClean filter is 100 times more efficient than the typical 1” filter found in most air returns, making the air in our homes safe for homeowners.
