What To Know About Choosing Air Cleaners
Air cleaners help to keep the indoor air environment healthy. But there are so many on the market today that it can get confusing about what the different types do and which ones would be best for your home.
Filtering the indoor air is important if you want to get rid of toxic substances that you breathe every day. The indoor air can be literally swimming with harmful pollutants that can make you ill, not those that just irritate allergies. Those who are susceptible to normal everyday pollutants like dander, pollen, and dust particles, are already suffering from allergies and respiratory illnesses. The more polluted the air, the more likely they are to get seriously sick.
Anyone can get ill from exposure to methane gas buildup from sewer gases, volatile organic compounds released from common building materials, and carbon monoxide buildup from a gas-fueled appliance. It is well worth discovering the different types of air cleaners so you choose one that will remove these toxic vapors.
Filtering out bacterial contaminants and other more volatile chemical vapors like gases, methane, and others can significantly improve indoor air quality. But how do you know what type of air cleaner to get that will handle vapors and small particles like bacteria and viruses?
Whole-Home Air Cleaners vs. Portables
The first thing you need to know is why a whole-home air cleaner is better than a portable system. With portables, you can only clean one room at a time. Meanwhile, the polluted air in the other rooms is being circulated through the house as normal. A whole-home air cleaner works in every room simultaneously because the air from the HVAC system passes through it before it reaches the air ducts.
The whole home air cleaners are professionally installed and maintained by your HVAC contractor. The filters last much longer, so you basically need just a yearly service from a qualified technician.
Media Filtration Air Cleaners
One of the best methods of cleaning your indoor air is with the use of a media filtration system, that's much more effective at cleaning up the air than a standard filter. In fact, one of the top rated types of filters you can use for your heating and air conditioning system is the Electrostatically Charged Carbon Media Filter. Media filters use different materials to filter the indoor air, commonly poly synthetics, fiberglass, carbon, and other media such as anti-microbial or natural or synthetic hog hair.
When you have media filtration installed to clean your indoor air, you'll have great options in air cleaning that will keep your indoor air cleaner and fresher, which means you'll breathe easier and stay healthier throughout the year.
