Recently, airborne diseases have become a big topic of discussion in the media, political sphere, and even within your own household. As indicated by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), there are three “danger levels” associated with indoor air pollution: allergens and particulates, infectious agents, and toxic compounds.
- Allergens and particulates include dust, pollen, mold, mildew, and dust mites, which can contribute to allergy and asthma symptoms and nose and throat irritation.
- Infectious agents, including bacteria and viral infections, can induce upper respiratory infections, bronchitis, pneumonia, and other serious illnesses.
- Toxic compounds, the most dangerous, include formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, and pesticides, which can cause mild depression, lethargy, blurred vision, headaches, and more.
At Gillece, we know that since 98% of airborne contaminants are actually less than 1 micron in size, the effectiveness of capturing and controlling micron particles is very important in proper and thorough air filtration. Some air filtration systems address only one of the danger levels for concentrated protection, while others address all three. Our air filtration systems in Pittsburgh are effective at capturing the smallest of airborne particles, down to .3 microns in size, which are the most present and dangerous to inhale.

Air Filtration Systems We Offer
Our air filtration systems range from independent, easily replaceable, state-of-the-art air filters to full-blown, whole-house, high-efficiency particulate air filter systems. Specialized filter technology developed by leading asthma and allergy physicians substantially removes all airborne particles from 1.8 microns in size, to the 97% removal of particles .3 microns in size.
Our air filtration systems in Pittsburgh are designed to capture and filter out allergenic particles, infectious agents, and toxic compounds that may be present in your home, leaving you with significantly cleaner and safer indoor air.
How Do Air Filtration Systems Clean the Air?
Air filtration systems use filters, either independently or as part of a combined system, to magnetize, capture, control, reduce, or eliminate potentially harmful airborne contaminants. They are utilized in ductwork, furnaces, or alongside your heating and cooling system, depending on the filter system. Different air filtration systems address different indoor air issues, working in their own concentrated way to help eliminate contaminants that are unsafe to inhale.
We offer a range of air filtration and air purification systems to keep your indoor air clean and healthy!
How Do Clean Air Filters Benefit Your Home & Your Family?
Have a pet? Live with a smoker? Suffer from allergies or asthma? Each of these things affects your indoor air quality and require replacing air filters. Pet dander and tobacco smoke can clog up a filter more quickly than not, requiring more frequent filter replacement for continued protection and efficient air filtration. Allergy and asthma sufferers are also more sensitive to airborne particles and may benefit from more frequent filter replacement.
At Gillece Services, our air filters are strategically developed not to absorb moisture and do not support any growth of bacteria, mold, mildew, or fungi in normal applications. Each filter remains at peak operating efficiency for about three months before needing to be replaced and depending on your specific household environment.
