Common Types of Air Cleaners
Air cleaner technology includes:
- UV Germicidal Light – Indoor air quality is not only applicable to a comfortable, cozy or chilled environment. Airborne contaminants trigger asthmatic attacks and other respiratory-related health conditions. A UV germicidal light exterminates biological contaminants by interrupting mutation. Yet, despite a UV germicidal light’s ability to eradicate airborne contaminants, the air cleaning devices do not have the capacity to filter out microbes. This is a primary reason that Hoffmann Brothers heating contractors advise St Louis homeowners to invest in an air cleaner in addition to a UV germicidal light.
- Electronic Precipitator – works by utilizing electricity to capture and charge particles in the air. The scientific process draws particle matter into an ion section where the contaminants remain entrapped on a metal plate.
- Ion Generator – is an air cleaning technology. It works by scattering ions into the air, charging those particles and then settling on surfaces throughout the home. As a result, it is not as effective as whole-house air cleaning systems.
- Whole-House Air Filter system is compatible with most homes’ current heating and cooling systems. An air cleaner using both an electrically enhanced air filtration technology and a media cleaner afford the best indoor air quality for your home.
Air Filters St Louis
A clean filter allows air to pass through your HVAC unit freely, without the blower fan working overtime to draw air in through a clogged filter. By replacing your air filter every 3-6 months, you decrease any strain on your HVAC system and prolong the lifespan of the unit while decreasing overall operating costs. Moreover, by catching dust and debris, a clean air filter keeps your air ducts from filling with dust and allergens, reducing contaminants circulating in your home’s air.
Common Types of Air Filters
- Fiberglass filters: These are most common, do the bare minimum, are cheap and easily replaced.
- Polyester and pleated filters: These are mid-range filters for people with slight allergies, live in areas with high pollen content or have pets. These generally are better than fiberglass filters for removing pollutants.
- High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance (HEPA) Filters: These are the best filters out there with the highest filtration rating. They’re mainly used in hospitals and require special installation.
