Air filtration is essential to a healthy home. The best whole-home air filter protects your HVAC system and improves its performance while reducing indoor pollutants and providing a healthier indoor environment. MERV rating assesses the effectiveness of air filters. The higher the MERV rating, the greater percentage of particles captured.
Volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, are carbon-containing substances that easily become vapors or gases. Their release is called off-gassing, and occurs over time, not just during application or drying. Some paints may emit VOCs that can serve as an irritant to people with allergies and breathing issues. Our homes feature low-VOC paints that help improve indoor air quality.
