Air Filtration Frequently Asked Questions

  • A: Indoor air is full of common airborne particles, but some can be more harmful than others. Mold, pollen, dust, pet dander, bacteria, and viruses can be floating through the air at any moment.

  • A: Air filtration systems send ionized oxidizers into the air to eliminate airborne particles.

    If you have a building with central ductwork, the air filtration system is installed into your furnace or central A/C so that the ionized oxidizers are released while air moves through your system.

    If you have a building without ductwork, you can use an air filtration system that works beside your ductless heating or cooling unit to oxidize the air near the system, so that the air distributed out of the system is clean of particles.

  • Yes, the two brands of air filtration systems that Snow’s offers have been found to reduce the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). A third-party study found REME HALO® air purifiers (for furnaces) to have an efficacy of 99.9% reduction against COVID-19. iWave® air filtration products (for ductless mini-split systems) were also tested on the novel coronavirus and were found to provide as much as 99.4% reduction.

  • A: Yes! Poor indoor air quality can cause health problems like dry eyes and sore throats and make symptoms of the cold, flu, and other illnesses worse. Adding an air filtration system to your home or business can help reduce these common air-related symptoms and help prevent colds or viruses from spreading.

  • A: There are a few ways to notice improvements from an air filtration system:

    • Reduced health symptoms, like allergies
    • Fewer sicknesses spread between inhabitants
    • Minimal smells or odors in the air
  • A: Yes, air filtration systems can significantly reduce airborne viruses and bacteria on surfaces.

  • A: Yes, Snow’s Fuel Company follows strict safety guidelines to keep employees and customers safe during installations.

  • A: It is a good idea to have your air filtration system checked by a professional at least once a year. This can be done during your annual tune-up from a Snow’s HVAC technician.

  • A: No. Once air either enters an in-duct air filtration system or passes by a ductless air filtration system the airborne virus or particles are ionized.

  • A: It depends. If your home has central ductwork, an in-duct air filtration system is your best choice. You can tell if you have ductwork by checking to see if your heat or air conditioning is dispersed through your home by vents. If your home does not have central ductwork, a ductless air filtration system is best. If your home has radiant heat or uses ductless mini-splits, you fall into this category.

    Snow’s is happy to install REME HALO® Air Purifiers and iWave® Air Filtration Products.
