Why You Can’t Go Without an Electronic Air Cleaner

Living comfortably is something that every homeowner strives for. And decent indoor air quality is about so much more than just reaching the ideal temperature. Of course, most people do think first of their HVAC systems when considering their comfort, however there are other factors to consider when it comes to air quality.

Sure, you have an air filter in your HVAC system. But did you know this is just intended to protect the inside components of your HVAC system, not your indoor air? For that job, you need a quality indoor air quality product, such as the electronic air cleaner.

What Is an Electronic Air Cleaner?

Mechanical air filtration works by trapping pollutants on a filtering media as air passes through. While this can be relatively effective, it may not clean the air in your home as much as you’d hope. Rather, you need an electronic air cleaner. This type of system takes a more active role in eliminating pollutants from your air.

With this air purification device, air is pulled into an ionization chamber. Pollutants are then given an electric charge and become trapped on oppositely charged collector plates. From there, the particles can easily be removed and the collector plates cleaned by the homeowner.

Why an Electronic Air Cleaner Is Essential to Your Comfort

There are numerous benefits to using an electronic air cleaner. First off, while they can work independently of your HVAC system, they are whole-house systems that can be integrated into the system instead, for your maximum convenience.

Electronic air filters effectively remove the smallest of pollutants, which can otherwise pass through your air filtration system. If you are looking for an air filtration option, be sure to give our team a call.
