Air Cleaners and Purifiers

Air Cleaners or purifiers, as shown in Figure 1, are becoming a necessity. The more energy efficient we make our homes, the less outdoor/indoor air circulation takes place and that means that more contaminants continue to circulate throughout the home. Indoor air pollution has become a major problem.

Selection or air cleaners and purifiers.

The air that is circulated within our homes, the air that we breathe is contaminated with pollutants such as pollen, lung damaging dust, pet hair, dander, dust mites, smoke form tobacco and cooking, spores, disease-causing bacteria and viruses. These pollutants can create a multitude of long and short term health problems including asthma, and other lung disorders. Standard furnace filters trap between 5% to 15% of airborne particles. In order to maintain a clean air environment it is necessary to employ the latest technologies and in this instance the best solution to indoor air pollution is to install a whole-house, high efficiency air cleaner on your central forced air heating/cooling system.

High Efficiency Air Cleaners:

High Efficiency Air Cleaners are the most efficient air cleaners on the market today. They are proven to remove large quantities of airborne pollutants.

Media Air Cleaners:

Media Air Cleaners use simple, extremely effective HEPA-style air filters, media air cleaners are a very quiet, low-maintenance, inexpensive air filtration system. HEPA air filters actual increase their particulate capturing abilities the longer they are installed. Efficiency is 99% for particles larger than five microns. One micron particles, can be filtered out at a 95% effectiveness. These high-density filter systems are attached to the heating or cooling system, in line with the return air system, where it traps the pollutants before the air is conditioned and redistributed throughout the rooms in your home.

Electronic Air Cleaners:

Some of the new high efficiency electronic air cleaner's remove airborne particles, as small as a virus, at an efficiency of 80%. Standard plate-type electronic air cleaners lose efficiency over time and require regular maintenance. On the other hand high efficiency air cleaner's specially designed electronically enhanced filtration permanently traps particulate, so you get a continuous high efficiency air filtration system.

How do I get the cleanest air possible?

Through the marvels of advanced technology, of course. Particles entering the air cleaner pass through a control electrode, which focuses and intensifies an electrical field generated by the ionizing wires. The particles are charged in the electrical field and then collected on grounded micro-fiber media.

Clean fresh air...your good health and well-being depend on it. But according to the Environmental Protection Agency, today's tightly-sealed homes and offices can have air that is up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air. An air cleaner is an excellent way to minimize indoor pollutants.
