What Type of Air Cleaner Should I Use in My Home?

During the winter season, you’ll depend upon your heater to keep your home warm and comfortable. While maintaining comfortable temperatures throughout your home during the coldest time of the year is certainly a priority, though, you must remember too that the quality of the air filling your home really cannot be overlooked. If you hope to enjoy great comfort, then great indoor air quality is a must.  That is why you may want to consider the use of an air cleaner in Everett, WA. Read on, and let us know if you think that an air cleaner is right for  your home. G & S Heating Cooling & Electric will make sure that your new air cleaner is the perfect fit.

Get to Know Your Options

Heaters and air conditioners are both home comfort systems, but you certainly wouldn’t run your air conditioner in January. Well, just as you must use the appropriate comfort system for your needs at any given time, so too must you use the right air cleaner. Only then will your indoor air quality meet your expectations.

Electronic air cleaners are a great place to start. These devices may vary from model to model, but the general idea is the same. By pulling air into an ionization chamber, the electronic air cleaner is able to give the pollutants within that air an electric charge. Once it has, it can collect those pollutants on oppositely charged collector plates, which are then simply removed and cleaned.

For biological pollutants, though, pollutant collection is not really the best way to go. Even if your system were able to trap such pollutants, after all, they could continue to thrive once they were trapped,  reproducing and causing further issues. A system such as a UV (ultraviolet) air purifier allows homeowners to actively destroy these pollutants. These systems won’t remove dirt and dust, though, so you may want to consider a multi-pronged approach to improving air quality.
