Homes built over the last two decades are much tighter than those built previously, allowing for greater energy efficiency. As a result, however, fresh air exchange is more limited—and polluted air can become trapped inside your home or business. This leads to an increase in airborne sickness and an exacerbation of allergies and asthma. Harrell King technicians specialize in indoor air quality solutions that preserve the health and safety of your family, personnel, and guests.

Using HEPA air filters, ultraviolet light purification systems, and electrostatic particulate collection, our team improves air quality and helps defend against common colds, virus and allergies.
Chances are you’ve heard of HEPA filters before. This is a term you’ll often see when researching vacuum cleaners or air purifiers. HEPA filters, or High Efficiency Particulate Air filters, are created and tested to follow the current HEPA filter standard. As of right now, meeting that current standard means that any self-claimed HEPA filter (whether it’s in your air filter or your vacuum cleaner!) has to remove at least 99.97 percent of particles 0.3-micron in diameter from air that passes through the filter. Obviously, that’s the majority of the pollutants in the air—which is why HEPA filters are considered some of the best in the business!
If you’re interested in removing 99.97 percent of the pollutants (like mold, bacteria, dust, dander, and more) from your home’s indoor air, then a whole-house HEPA filtration system is the ideal choice for you. These systems work in conjunction with your HVAC system, so they filter the warm or cool air from your heating or cooling system as it passes through your home.
If your primarily worried about the germs in your home, an ultraviolet light air purification system might be for you! These UV air purifiers zap any airborne bacteria, mold, or contaminants to keep your home as healthy as possible. These systems are installed directly into your HVAC system, where microbes and odors can be eliminated consistently as air is circulated through the rooms in your home.
Yes, we said odors! UV air purifiers can remove unwanted scents from the air by turning the odor-causing molecules into water vapor and CO2. That’s in addition to removing unwanted allergens and bacteria from the air in your home to keep your family healthy.
Electrostatic filters are washable and are intended to be “forever filters,” meaning they’ll never need to be replaced, but just cleaned regularly. These filters use multiple layers of ventilated metal, which your home’s indoor air passes through. When it passes through the first layer of metal ventilation, molecules in the air (like bacteria, allergens, dander, and more) will become positively charged by the friction against the metal. Then, those positively charged molecules will stick themselves to the next few layers of metal ventilation, as the clean air continues to pass through. This is the process of electrostatic air filtration, which traps dust and other unwanted contaminants in this filter rather than floating around in your home!
The major benefit of these types of filters is their cost. Since they never have to be replaced, they’re much easier on your wallet than replaceable air filters, so they’re able to keep your home clean at a lower price, as long as you’re okay with washing off the dust and contaminants from the filter every month or so.
If you’re not sure which of these indoor air quality solutions is the right choice for you, our team at Harrell King can help! Our skilled, factory-trained technicians will help you identify the right system for your home based on your needs, lifestyle, and budget. We’ll work with you throughout the installation process to make sure that you’re completely satisfied, then we’ll provide maintenance and repair services for the remainder of your new system’s lifespan.
