Air Filter and Air Purifier Services in Amarillo
Two Facets of Great Indoor Air Quality
Many people have never been taught the difference between air filters and air cleaners. The effectiveness of both are measured in MERV, which is a technical way of telling you the size of solid particulate will be captured. Air filters have a MERV rating of 1- 12, which means they will capture particulate from 1.0 -5.0 microns, which includes typical particulate such as most pollen, mold, spores, pet dander and air borne hair. Air filters will only capture about 10% of .3 micron particulate. While air cleaners, have a MERV ratings up to 17!! This means they will capture particulate all the way down to 0.007. Air cleaners will obviously capture the same type particulate as filters but they will also capture fungi, bacteria, viruses and the very smallest household dust. Another major factor is that air cleaners will capture 97% of particulate .3 microns.
