Smoky outside? Advanced home air filtration can help

Did you know the annual “Pacific Northwest Wildfire and Smoke Festival” is underway? Okay, that’s not a real festival, but it’s easy to see how smoky it is across Idaho again this summer.

Our Air Quality Index (AQI) is consistently in the range of being unhealthy for sensitive groups, teetering on the brink of being unhealthy for all populations. We usually blame smoke for our poor air quality, but there’s a lot of nasty stuff floating around: allergens, pollutants, dust, pollen, dander, mold, and viruses.

Improving the air quality in your house

You might assume you only have two options when it comes to air quality:

1. Stop breathing (highly discouraged)

2. Purchase a whole-house air filtration system

Ashley Heating, Air & Water offers a great solution if you choose option 2 (learn more about the Trane CleanEffects™ Air Cleaner, but you also have another option for breathing easier.

Trane/Mitsubishi Electric ductless air conditioning and heating systems do more than just keep the rooms in your home at the perfect temperature — they continuously filter air more effectively than conventional heating and cooling systems, which only use one filter installed in the central unit.

Using ductless systems, each room’s indoor unit is equipped with its own advanced filter that’s fully washable and can last up to 10 years. Available filters include:

· Nano Platinum Filter uses nanometer-sized platinum-ceramic particles to kill bacteria.

· Deodorizing Filter uses nanotechnology to neutralize even the worst odors.

· Electrostatic Anti-Allergy Enzyme Filter breaks down allergen proteins and makes them non-allergens. Stop the sneezing, keep the cat.

About ductless heating and cooling systems

True to its name, a ductless system provides heating and cooling to spaces without existing ductwork or places where it’s simply not feasible or cost effective to install ducting. This makes it ideal for cabins, new additions, sunrooms, bedrooms, basements, garages, or shops. Ductless systems are also a good option if you’re looking to replace unsightly window units, space heaters, or old baseboard heating.
