Tip & How-To about Heating & Cooling
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.
