If you are typical, you spend a lot of your life indoors at home, in the work place, shopping, etc. Energy concerns over the last 20 years have led to better-insulated, climate controlled indoor environments. With these more energy efficient structures have come the perception that the indoor environment is healthier because polluted outside air is sealed out. According to the EPA, whether you live or work in an urban environment or enjoy the open spaces of rural living, indoor air has been found to be up to 70 times more polluted than the air outside.
These air borne particles can come from many man-made materials used in furniture, upholstery, draperies, bedding, carpets, clothing paints, and cleaners. They also come from cooking, smoking, pets, candles, and fireplaces.
When it comes to improving indoor air quality, whole-home air cleaners are powerful tools. Air-cleaning systems are increasingly popular and can be incorporated into almost any HVAC system. When installed into your home's heating and cooling system, an Electronic Air Cleaner traps and filters airborne particles passing through the system to make sure cleaner air is distributed to all rooms in your home. The system captures microscopic impurities like dust, smoke and smog particles in addition to larger particles like mold spores and cat dander. If you have pets, smokers, allergy or asthma suffers in your home, an electronic air cleaner is the way to go. If you are installing a new heating or air conditioning system, then make sure you have an electronic cleaner installed with the new system. If you have an existing hot air heat or air conditioning system, then you can have one installed in the old system.
Some benefits of an electronic Air Cleaner:
- Produces cleaner air by removing airborne particles 1 micron or greater.
- Allergy, asthma and hay fever symptoms may be relieved as irritating pollens, dust and molds are removed from the air.
- Drapes, carpets, furniture, and walls stay cleaner longer because dirt buildup is reduced on interior surfaces.
- Fresher smell with the reduction of particle-borne odors from cooking, smoking, pets, cleaners and paints.
- Environmentally sound, as it does not produce harmful ozone gases.
Having a tight home is essential for energy-efficiency, but it can also cause poor indoor air quality. More and more homeowners are looking for ways to improve air quality for themselves and their families.
