About Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

It is estimated that people in North America spend 65% to 90% of their time indoors. With so much time spent indoor, the quality of the indoor air we breathe has a significant effect on our health. Unfortunately, the indoor air we breath is more polluted that the outdoor air.
Generally speaking, if more than 20% of occupants complain of symptoms such as headaches, breathing problems, excessive cold, etc., and no specific cause can be found, the building is probably suffering from Sick Building Syndrome (SBS). SBS, a term many people are familiar with, cost North America more than $100 billion each year in heath care costs, absenteeism, lost production time, and lost revenue.
Construction material such as paints, plastics, carpeting, wall covering, etc., are major sources of indoor air pollution. Accumulated dust and moisture can become environmental niches that promote the growth of micro-organisms or molds. These can be drawn into air stream and circulated throughout the building by the air distribution system, like furnace.
Improved IAQ makes houses more durable, safer and more comfortable.
The size of contaminants in the air will range in size from 0.01 Micron to the size of leaves and insects. A Micron is equal to 0.001 millimeter. To give you a better idea of how small a micron is, a human hair has a diameter of 100 microns.
Normally, when you look across a room, you can see no contamination. However, have you ever noticed what a ray of sunshine brings out? When a sunbeam enters a room, you see thousands of particles dancing in the air, and yet there are many more that you can not see.

Because of wide range of the contaminants sizes, it is difficult, if not impossible, to design a single air filter that will stop all contaminants.
The biggest problem in filter selection has been the confusion arising from variety of test methods used in the past. Fortunately now ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers) has established a filter performance standard (52.2) that simplifies the process.
The 52.2 standard, Method of Testing General Ventilation Air Cleaning Devices for Removal Efficiency by Particle Size, allows filter selection based on contaminants and their respective sizes. It measures minimum efficiency of an air filter over it service life. MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) is ASHRAE standard (52.2) based on the minimum efficiency observed during the test of a filter.
The test determines a filters ability to trap particles from the air we breathe. These particles range from 0.3 to 10 Microns. Ratings range from MERV 1 (a low-efficiency throw away filter) up to MERV 16 (a filter with an efficiency of 95%)
Example: A MERV 10 can achieve efficiencies of 50 to 65% on 1.0 to 3.0 Micron particles. A higher MERV rating means more effective filtration.
Box media filters (pleated media) have become more effective on arresting particles (MERV 11 and up to 16)

An air duct system supplies the fresh air brought in by the ventilator and distributes it throughout your home. Another duct draws the existing stale, humid air back to the ventilator and then exhausts it outdoors.
