Brooklyn Indoor Air Quality Company

We need air to stay alive. However, the same air that sustains life on earth is also full of germs and harmful chemicals that can lead to allergies and airborne illnesses. Our bodies have the capabilities to fight off most of these harmful particles. However, with vehicles, factories, and other man-made objects spewing fumes of hazardous chemicals into the atmosphere, especially in large cities such as New York, we need to do more to ensure that the air we breath is safe and clean. One way to do this is by installing HVAC systems in our homes to improve the indoor air quality.

If you are thinking of moving into a new home in New York, make sure that it has a HVAC system installed to improve the quality of air inside. This is because, studies conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) indicate that the air inside new homes in highly populated cities, such as New York, is 10 times more polluted than outdoor air.

On top of that, research by the American College of Allergists found that indoor air pollution is responsible for more than 50% of all health issues in children and adults. This means that you need to do more to protect your family’s health, and selecting the right air purifier or air cleaner for your home is the first step towards it.

MERV Ratings and Choosing Air Filters

With so many different brands, models, sizes, and price points available, most homeowners in Staten Island, Queens, and other New York neighborhoods are faced with a challenge when it comes to choosing the right air filter for their homes. Another area that adds to the challenge is MERV ratings. To help you make the right choice, here is a basic guide to Minimum Efficiency Rating Value (MERV) ratings.

The Minimum Efficiency Rating Value is a metric used to compare the effectiveness of air filters for home HVAC units. Air filters are designed to trap and prevent airborne particles such as emissions, pet dander, mold spores, pollen, infectious bacteria and viruses, and dust from entering your home’s air supply. Other than that ridding the air supply of these unhealthy, lung-irritating, airborne particles, air filters also protect your HVAC unit’s delicate internal components from premature wear, therefore, extending its useful lifespan.

The MERV ratings for filter effectiveness range from 1 to 20. The rating is determined by the size and amount of tiny particles each filter can comfortably remove from the air. Filters with lower ratings trap fewer and larger sized particles, while higher rated ones capture more and smaller sized ones, which makes them more effective than the former.

The following are some tips to follow when choosing an air filter:

  • For improved indoor air quality and excellent home dust control, choose filters rated 9 to 12 by MERV.
  • Those ones that have MERV ratings of thirteen to sixteen are able to capture some bacteria, viruses, and other smaller particles.
  • If you run a lab, hospital, or a clean room, choose High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters. These filters have MERV ratings that range from 17 to 20. HEPA filters can also be installed in homes where children or occupants suffer from breathing conditions such as asthma and also those ones with more contaminants in the air.
  • Filters with MERV ratings ranging from 7 to 13 are perfect for homes with less sensitive residents, with mostly large particles like dust in the air. These filters are also able to trap harmful particles, so no need to worry about their effectiveness.


If you’ve noticed mold and mildew a, water drains on the walls and ceiling, or poor indoor air quality in your home, it means that there is a lot of moisture in the air. This is common for homeowners in New York, and if you are one of them, then you need to install a dehumidifier.

New York is lies on a high water table area, and for this reason, you’ll notice more humidity in the air when it in summer when it is hot. This can sometimes be very uncomfortable even when in a building with an air conditioner. AC’s are capable of removing humidity from the air, however, they can do this in limited quantities. To be able to control humidity in your home, you need to install a good dehumidifier.

At our company, we’ve been installing, servicing, and repairing whole-home dehumidifiers, steam generating humidifiers, UV bulbs, flow-through humidifiers, power humidifiers, bypass humidifiers, HEPA purification systems, air purifiers, whole house air cleaners, and more HVAC systems for homeowners in New York for years now.
