Breathe Clean Air
Your furnace is the source of power for your central heating and air conditioning system. Before your indoor air makes it to the coil to be heated or cooled, it must first pass through a filter. Then, the conditioned air is distributed to different parts of your home through a network of air ducts. When your air conditioner or furnace is not regularly serviced, dust and contaminants build up and are distributed throughout your home.
If the ducts have tears and leaks, it creates and ideal environment for bacteria to multiply and for pollutants, like dust and allergens, to collect contaminating the air passing through and helping spread mold, dirt, and allergens throughout your home. A dirty or low-quality filter can also contribute to the spread of contaminants in your home. If you live in a city with high levels of humidity, like Chino Hills, Corona, Rancho Santa Margarita, or Yorba Linda, it can even aid in the growth of microbiological agents since dirty and poor quality air filters retain moisture.
Electronic Air Filters
If you are like most homeowners, when you enter your home you expect to leave your hectic day outside – along with the polluted air. Your home should be a place of relaxation and refuge, from the frantic world and noxious waste. That’s why the quality of the air in your home is vital in both home comfort and personal health. An electronic air filter (AKA electrostatic or powered air filter) is a compelling upgrade over a standard filter. Electronic filters have superior filtration properties and are specially constructed to catch even the smallest speck of dust.

Your central air system is designed to provide you with cold air during the summer and heat during the winter. If your HVAC system is not serviced regularly it can also work to spread allergens, pollutants, and dirt throughout your home.

If you live in a city with high levels of humidity, like Chino Hills, Corona, Rancho Santa Margarita, or Yorba Linda, it can even aid in the growth of microbiological agents since low-quality air filters retain moisture and can become an incubator for bacteria.

Cleaner Air Starts with an Electronic Air Filter
For most homes in Chino Hills, Corona, Yorba Linda, Rancho Santa Margarita, and the surrounding areas, the first line of defense for IAQ is at the filter. The purpose of the filter is to sift the air passing through, catching any dirt, dust or pollutant before it has a chance to disperse through your home. Most air filters do a decent job at trapping large particles, however, the contaminants that are responsible for adverse health effects are too small to be caught by conventional air filters.
To determine the quality of your filter you must first find its MERV rating. A MERV rating of 6 -8 is of standard quality for a typical HVAC system. This type of filter is designed to catch particles that are large enough to be seen by the human eye. An electronic air filter is an efficient upgrade over a standard filter. Electronic filters have superior filtration properties and are specially constructed to catch even the smallest speck of dust.
These filters work to trap particles in two ways. First, they create an electrostatic field within your furnace that causes airborne particles to clump together preventing them from passing through the filter. Second, they have a higher MERV rating than standard filters. This clumping and higher filtration ability allows for a much more effective filtration system. It is also easy to clean-up and maintain.
