Do I Need an Electronic Air Cleaner?

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017

A lot of people believe that the air filter in their forced air heating system is there to filter out the pollutants that can drag down the indoor air quality in their homes.

However, many pollutants are small enough that they’d require a filter that would be too efficient for your residential furnace or heat pump. That is why you may want to choose an electronic air cleaner in Snohomish, WA.
