Were you aware that the condition of your indoor air can actually be worse than that of the outdoors? You might believe that the air filter that came standard with your HVAC system resolves this issue, but that’s unfortunately not the case. That air filter is actually designed to protect the interior components of your HVAC unit and does little to protect the indoor air quality of your home.
This air filter should be changed every three months, at least, to continue to protect the integrity of your HVAC system. Additionally, while it doesn’t help your indoor air quality much, it can make it worse if it gets clogged up. But if you are looking for truly clean air, then you would do well to consider an electronic air cleaner.
Advantages of an Air Cleaner
When used appropriately and well-maintained, an air cleaner can trap and filter up to 99% of airborne particles that pass through your HVAC unit, ensuring that cleaner air is distributed to all rooms within your home. When the air leaves this device, the pre-filter traps many of the larger particles, and adds a charge to the smaller particles, which are attracted to a plate where they collect.
Electronic air cleaners work by removing microscopic impurities from your air including dust, smoke, and smog, in addition to pet dander and mold sports. These may seem like harmless particles to you, but they can actually make you and your family ill. This is especially the case for people who suffer from allergies and/or asthma.
For the most successful results with an air cleaner, you’ll want to clean the plates on a routine basis. The effectiveness of this indoor air quality product does diminish and dirt accumulates on the plates, however a quick wipe down will fix this.
