How Air Cleaners Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Construction and design on homes today emphasizes heat sealing to help maintain energy efficiency by preventing heat loss in cold weather and heat gain in hot weather. There is a downside to this sealing, however, and that is the lack of fresh air that enters homes. Unless you throw open your windows and doors for a few hours during the day—rarely an option in Salt Lake City—the air in your home will became stale and filled with dust and dirt.

You can help improve your indoor air quality with professional installation of air cleaners. Call up the Salt Lake City HVAC experts at At Your Service Plumbing, Heating & Air, and they will assist you with finding an air cleaner that will keep your home’s air healthy and your system free from damaging dust and dirt.

How Air Cleaners Work To Improve Air Quality

There are two basic types of air cleaners that can installers can place in your AC and heater’s ventilation system: filters and purifiers.

  • Air filters: Also known as mechanical air filters, these products are designed to trap particles that try to pass through them in a weave of fibers. The filters don’t simply use the physical mesh of fibers to trap particles, but actually attract the particles to the surface of the fibers. This makes them very efficient, and they can filter all particles down to 0.3 microns in size, and even some smaller. However, mechanical air filters are not effective against gases and odor molecules, so if your indoor air suffers from problems with smoke, formaldehyde, pesticides, etc., you should consider installing an air purifier as well.
  • Air purifiers: Also known as electronic air filters, purifiers do not actually “filter” the air at all. They clean it using an electric charge that ionizes the air. Ionized particles are drawn down to collector plates in the purifier and trapped there. Purifiers can affect particles down to 0.1 microns and are effective against the gas and odor molecules that mechanical filters miss. They require power to run, but their energy use is minimal compared to the money you will save from a clean, efficient HVAC system.

You will need to have proper installation from professionals for any air filter in your home. The experts will determine what type of air cleaners will do the job, and the strength (such as MERV rating for mechanical filters) necessary. They will then install it so it can perform its function effectively without restricting ventilation.
