Is there a pediatrician in the house? Questions about whole house air filtration and infants.

We are expecting twins in a couple of months and are thinking about installing a Guardian Air REME
filtration system in our HVAC unit. We had an HVAC check up recently and the technician identified a substance in one of our ducts that could be mold. I like the idea of eliminating bacteria, mold and odors from the air but I know that infants and toddlers need to be exposed to some germs in order to build up an immunity to them. We aren't planning for them to go to daycare so they won't be exposed to other children except on play dates and the occasional mother's day out morning when they're a little older. Just looking to find the right balance between some cleanliness but not total sterilization.
