Indoor Air Quality
- Maintenance Plan
Though the air in your home may look clean, it’s probably a lot less so than you think. The average home is rife with all kinds of microscopic airborne contaminants, from dust, to pollen, dander, mold, and germs. That’s why it’s almost always a good idea to have some sort of whole-house air filter or air purifier installed in your home.
AC Comfort installs and services air filtration and purifier systems of all kinds in Katy, TX. If you need an air purifier or filter installed or serviced, our NATE certified HVAC service professionals can help you out. Contact us today to schedule an appointment. Your comfort is our business.
Types of Air Purifiers and Filters
Not all air purifiers and filters are equally good in every situation. It’s a good idea to consult with a professional before making any decisions about which systems to install in your home. You’re going to need a professional contractor to install your new system for you anyway, but we’ll get to that in a moment.
There are many different kinds of air purifiers and filters available on the market, including:
- Ionization Purifiers
- HEPA Filters
- UV Air Purifiers
- Charcoal Filters
This is just a small fraction of the many types of filters and purifiers available. Ionization purifiers use ion clouds to draw contaminants out of the air, while UV purifiers use ultraviolet light to sterilize germs. Charcoal filters use, as you might expect, charcoal to absorb contaminants, while HEPA filters rely on the tried–and–true standard of woven fiber mesh.
If you’re not sure which air filter or purifier is right for you, and you’d like help deciding, let AC Comfort take care of things for you. We can evaluate your home to determine the best air purifier or filter for your unique situation. Then we’ll install it for you, so you can start benefiting from it right away without having to worry about it.

Remember to Schedule Maintenance
It’s a good idea to schedule maintenance services for your air purifier or filter at least once every year or two. The filters, at least will likely need to be changed out long before that. Your technician should be able to show you how to do that yourself, though. Air purifiers often require power, and contain moving parts. This means they’re vulnerable to breaking down, just like any heater or air conditioner would be. If you have reason to believe that your air purifier is not working properly, don’t wait until the next maintenance appointment to call for professional services. If you need to have your air purifier looked at, we can help.
