Indoor Air Quality

In order to better understand indoor air quality products, it’s important to know about the basics regarding microns and MERV ratings.

What are Microns?

Microns are a metric unit of length equal to one millionth of a meter. The use of the word micron, in conjunction with water filters, is almost always associated with filtration. The term micron comes into play when you want to know just how small a particle can be and still be trapped by the filter media that you are using.

What is MERV?

MERVE stands for “Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value”. This rating is the standard method in our industry for identifying the efficiency of an air filter. The higher the MERVE rating, the more efficient the filter is regarding the removal of particles from the air.

At Mountain Air, we know everything there is to know about microns, MERV and air quality. In addition to providing heating services and air conditioning services, we also offer high efficiency air filters and cleaners. Keeping your air clean with these products is important for reducing airborne illnesses, reducing allergies and killing germs.

Chris came to my house early and diagnosed my hot water tank issue. After I decided to replace the tank, Chris left and went and purchased new tank. He removed the old tank, which was in a very small closet. The new tank was slightly larger and therefore Chris had to re-plumb a sink, add the new tank and put everything back together again. Chris extremely cheerful, helpful and did a WONDERFUL job. I highly recommend.

When we bought our home a little over a year ago, we understood that the furnace would need to be replaced within a couple of years. I was hoping it would hang on through this winter, but the old fella passed quietly one cold February night. I called Mountain Air because there happened to be a magnet with their number on the duct above my deceased furnace, and they had a tech in my home within an hour. Things moved quickly and smoothly from there, and I now have a completely new system. I appreciated the responsiveness and professionalism of every single person I dealt with through this project, from the person who answered my initial call, forward. The installation techs were fantastic: quick, efficient, friendly and their final product looks great and runs perfectly. They have set a new standard for service, in my book, and other service companies will have a high bar to clear if they want a five-star review from me.
