It’s important to limit the number of pollutants you come into contact with each day. Through the use of air filters or purifiers, you can create a home that is healthier for you and your family. At Absolute Comfort Air, we don’t just help you create the ideal temperature in your home with our Barrow County HVAC services. We can also help you create an ideal breathing space. Our team of experts can inform you of the different options that are available when it comes to indoor air quality and provide you with quality installation or repair.

How Air Purifiers & Filters Work

There are all types of air pollutants that we breathe in on a daily basis that we are unaware of. Your home should be a safe space and with the help of our professionals, we can find a system that works right for you. We can test the quality of air in your space to determine what types of particles need to be removed. Depending on your current air quality, there are different types of filters that may be the right fit.

Air purifiers and filters provide many benefits such as:

  • Capturing contaminants that pass through them
  • Reducing the number of particles in your indoor air
  • Removing different sizes of particles depending on the system
  • Preventing build up in your cooling or heating systems
  • Creating a cleaner, often safer environment
  • Providing an enhanced indoor air quality

Air purification can make your home more pleasant, more relaxing, and a safer space to breathe. Let us help you create the environment you want by scheduling a service today.


Most houses with forced-air furnaces have a standard furnace filter made from loosely woven spun-glass fibers designed to keep it and its ductwork clean. Unfortunately, they don’t improve indoor air quality.

That takes a media filter, which sits in between the main return duct and the blower cabinet. Made of a deeply pleated, paper-like material, media filters are at least seven times better than a standard filter at removing dust and other particles.

An upgrade to a pleated media filter is designed to:

  • Remove mold’s food source
  • Removes breathable particles
  • Traps particles of: Dust, Dirt, Smoke, Hair, Pet Dander and more!

Compressed, media filters are usually no wider than six inches, but the pleated material can cover up to 75 square feet when stretched out. This increased area of filtration accounts for the filter’s long life, usually 1 year.

The only drawback to a media filter is its tight weave, which can restrict a furnace’s ability to blow air through the house. To ensure a steady, strong airflow through the house, choose a filter that matches your blower’s capacity- Air filters are rated according to their Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV). The higher the MERV number, the smaller the particles the filter collects.

However, remember a high MERV means a tighter weave or denser filter. The denser and more efficient the filter, the harder the HVAC system works to pull air through the filter. So it is imperative that you consult with a Licensed HVAC contractor like Absolute Comfort Air before using a filter in your system.

What Our Customers Have To Say

Had Us Up and Running in a Couple of Hours

Tanner was our service tech. Our heat quit on a Friday night and I called Absolute Comfort Air on Saturday morning. Tanner came to our home about an hour and a half after my phone call and diagnose the problem, explained the circumstances, and gave me a detailed quote. He then proceeded to make the repair.  He worked steadily and had us up and running in a couple of hours. Tanner was very polite, explained things in detail, and answered my questions very patiently. Thank you for a job well done.

Simply The Best!

I’ve been without heat since Saturday when my heat pump went out. I called Absolute Comfort and Alex came out and confirmed that after 19 years it had died. Kevin came out yesterday morning and he and Mark came this morning to check on things. Wayne and D.J. installed my new system. My house is warmer than it’s been in years and I wanted to thank you all for the fast, courteous and efficient manner you took care of my problem. Y’all are simply the best!!

I had a service technician by the name of Tanner visit my house today and go through a check list of all the components of my HVAC and found everything to be good and working at it’s best. He was very professional, courteous, and explained everything to me when he completed his work so I could understand it all.
