Air Electronic Cleaner - Electronic Whole House Air Cleaner

An electronic air cleaner can improve the indoor air quality as well as the performance of your heating and air conditioning system. That’s why many people are now investing in electronic air cleaners, to treat the air in their homes and minimize pollutants. Polarization technology now also effectively removes mold spores, bacteria, smoke and carcinogenic particles that other filter systems will not easily stop.

If you or someone in your family has health issues that relate to air quality, then 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 air cleaner installed with the new system. If you have an existing hot air heat or air conditioning system, then you can have an electronic air cleaner installed in the old system. The new filter can be easily installed in most hot air heating systems.

An electronic air cleaner can clean up many bad things in the air that normal filters will not catch. For best results make sure to clean the plates often. The effectiveness of the air cleaner will degrade as the build up of dirt accumulates on the plates. Clean plates will give much better results. Electronic air cleaners can be effective in removing smoke and odors also. The only downsides to an electronic air cleaner that I have found are the noise (snapping or popping) and the creation of ozone in some instances. The noise you will get used to after awhile. The ozone will be stronger if the air cleaner is too large for the building. If it is a problem, either speed up the air flow or install a smaller air cleaner.

When installed into your home’s heating and cooling system, an electronic air cleaner traps and filters up to 99% of airborne particles passing through the system to make sure cleaner air is distributed to all rooms in your home. When this air goes through an electronic air cleaner, the pre-filter traps the majority of the large particles. The particles that are too small to be trapped in the pre-filter are charged positive, and then attracted to negatively charge plates.

This advanced air cleaner captures microscopic impurities like dust, smoke and smog particles in addition to larger particles like mold spores and cat dander. Plus, you can say goodbye to monthly filter replacements by simply washing the air cleaner cells in your dishwasher or sink. If you have pets, smokers, allergy or asthma suffers in your home, you may want to think about a whole-house electronic air cleaner.

Electronic air cleaners overall are a great way to filter the air that you breathe and make sure that the quality of the air in your home is the best quality.

something wrong with this advertisement
proof is , heat up a piece of aluminium and see how long and how close your hand is to the heated section before you get burnt
then wrap a piece of fiberglass around the aluminium and heat it and see you get burnt at all
aluminium is used in all radiator fins for the heat transfer properties

Is there a way to test indoor air quality in my home ?


Yes. There are few many indoor air quality testing & building performance firms that do air quality testing. Some specialize just in this discipline.But keep in mind that even the best HVAC system needs fresh air from outside. Also i've heard a thing called a sling psychrometer. it measures moisture content in the air. you want 50% humidity. all HVAC companies have them.

How a Central Air Conditioning System Works

Facts:
  • The typical central air conditioning system is a split system, with an outdoor air conditioning, or "compressor bearing unit" and an indoor coil, which is usually installed on top of the furnace in the home.
  • Using electricity as its power source, the compressor pumps refrigerant through the system to gather heat and moisture from indoors and remove it from the home.
  • Heat and moisture are removed from the home when warm air from inside the home is blown over the cooled indoor coil. The heat in the air transfers to the coil, thereby "cooling" the air.
  • The heat that has transferred to the coil is then "pumped" to the exterior of the home, while the cooled air is pumped back inside, helping to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature.
  • Central air conditioning can also be provided through a package unit or a heat pump.

Benefits:
  • Indoor comfort during warm weather - Central air conditioning helps keep your home cool and reduces humidity levels.
  • Cleaner air - As your central air conditioning system draws air out of various rooms in the house through return air ducts, the air is pulled through an air filter, which removes airborne particles such as dust and lint. Sophisticated filters may remove microscopic pollutants, as well. The filtered air is then routed to air supply ductwork that carries it back to rooms.
  • Quieter operation - Because the compressor bearing unit is located outside the home, the indoor noise level from its operation is much lower than that of a free-standing air conditioning unit.
