Why you should consider having an electronic air cleaner


The variety of organisms and contaminants that pollute the air we breathe can be minimized in the home by having a whole house electronic air cleaner installed. The best way to filter air in a household is through a home’s forced-air heating or central air conditioning system. The electronic system filters air into the return air ductwork, trapping particles as air passes through, returning clean air into the home. These passive systems constantly filter the air in your house as long as the fan is running.

Electronic air cleaners, which are sometimes referred to as electrostatic precipitators, use current to charge particles. Collector plates then grab the particles just like a magnet. The electronic air cleaner works very well on particles that are too small to get trapped by regular filters, generally trapping up to 30 times as many particles as fiber filters. The filters never need replacing and the collector plates are easily cleaned every other month. Smoke, pollen and dust are cleaned from the air, significantly reducing irritants and allergans.

Having an ultraviolet filter installed is a good way to eliminate germs. This type of filter is a built-in component that is an add on to the house air cleaning system. It is an inexpensive addition that a can be professionally installed with the electronic air cleaner. Ultraviolet light kills airborne viruses and bacteria; all hospitals use it to clean areas where viruses are present. 

The EPA states that “indoor air pollutants are among the top five environmental health risks”, and lists “particulate matter” such as dust, smoke, pollen and animal dander, as well as tiny organisms like bacteria, dust mite, molds and viruses. A whole house electronic air cleaner will ensure removal of contaminants, irritants, allergans, tiny organisms and even bacteria and viruses. If there are children and pets in the home, this type of system is a necessity to ensure clean, healthy air.
