There are a number of way that people react to spring but, the initial instinct is to open those windows and doors, letting that fresh air into your Wheeling area home. The next step is spring cleaning your home, from dry cleaning the drapes to Windexing the windows as the spring sun greets you. However, wiping down the surfaces of your home does not clean what should be the primary aspect of your home: the air.
Ensuring the air you breath in your home every day is clean will take more than a dust mitt and vacuum. While a lot of dust lands on surfaces, the majority is still floating in the air, recirculating through the house and HVAC system. The only way to get your home really clean this spring is to buy an air filtration system.
Choosing the Right Air Filtration System for Your Wheeling Area Home
When it comes to air filtration and purification, there are several different options to pick from. The majority of HVAC systems have at least a simple filter that will catch the larger particles and take them out of your air. This is a starting point toward clean, fresh air but you need a higher quality filtration system.
There are three basic options when it comes to air filtration: air cleaners and purifiers; 2) media air cleaners and 3) basic air cleaners or filters.
- Air cleaners and purifiers. The leaders in air cleaning, air cleaners and purifiers will be able to remove the maximum percentage of impurities from the air. They are larger, giving the kind of air purity that is expected in a medical environment.
- Media air cleaners. The mid-level air filtration system is the media air cleaner. These are still impressively effective in removing a significant percentage of particles from the air, including dust, dander, pollen and other allergens.
- Basic air filters. The bare minimum air filtration option is the basic air filter. These filters will remove larger particles, but also will let many of the tiny allergens pass through and back into the air.
The top of the line air filtration systems use HEPA filters, which is the highest standard in air quality. These filters can capture the smallest microbes and can takeaway 99.97% of contaminants from the air, leaving behind pure air that is safe and healthy to breathe.
