The enclosed environment of your home is not necessarily protected from pollution. Indoors, air quality can be and usually is, worse than outside air. Your home is insulated to save energy, but this can make the indoor air quality worse by trapping allergens, dust, chemical smells, harmful mold and even bacteria inside. The often humid weather here in Cleveland can add to these problems and so can the cold snowy winters.

The right air filters can reduce or eliminate these indoor air quality issues. It can go a long way to keeping your home healthy, clean and fresh. There are air filters available for many specialized purposes.  But how do you wade through all the filtration choices? Think about your personal needs and those of your family:

  • Has your home been remodeled or carpeted recently?
  • Has an exterminator visited recently?
  • Do colds or upper-respiratory ailments tend to spread quickly through your household?
