How clean is the water coming from the taps in your house, or flowing to your washing machine and other appliances? You may be surprised to learn the answer. A variety of contaminants can filter into drinking water or develop from the municipal water treatment methods, including chlorine, arsenic, copper, cadmium, sulfur, sodium, and mercury. Some of these pollutants will affect health, others will make water taste and smell bad and causing staining on dishware and clothing.

There is help, however, in the form of professionally installed water filtration systems. Whole–house water filters do a thorough job that local filters on single faucets and filtration pitchers cannot. To find the right whole–house water filtration system to counteract the contamination in your household’s water, call AZ Air Conditioning and Heating today. Our water quality specialists will discover what problems are in your water supply and then install the filtration system that will eliminate them. Our team also handles service to keep your filters working.

The Different Water Filtration System Types

Water filters come in many different models: there is no such thing as a “one–size–fits–all” filter that will stop all contamination. Our water quality technicians will find the right type of filter to see that you receive the quality water you need.

  • Absorption filters: These are the common type of filter that most people think of when they hear the word “filter.” An absorption filter runs water through an absorbent medium, such as charcoal, to remove unwanted chemicals and particles. Absorption filters are effective against chlorine and other natural pollutants. They require routine servicing to clean them out so they will continue to work.
  • Reverse osmosis filters: These advanced systems are extremely powerful when it comes to affecting the tiniest pollutants. A reverse osmosis filter can even stop bacteria from getting through, and they work well for balancing out water softeners that place too much sodium into the water supply. Reverse osmosis filters work by creating separate pressure areas inside the plumbing, and then forcing the high pressure water through a semi–permeable membrane that traps extremely minute pollutants. Although more expensive to install than most absorption filters, reverse osmosis systems are one of the most reliable filters available.
