When those first few beautiful days of spring come, the most common instinct is to open those windows and doors, letting that fresh air into your Voorhees area home. The next step is spring cleaning your home, from dry cleaning the drapes to washing the windows as the spring sun brightens the room. However, wiping down the surfaces of your home does not clean the really important 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, most of it is still floating in the air, recirculating through the house and HVAC system. The best way to get your home ”the cleanest” of clean this spring is to purchase an air filtration system.
Choosing the Appropriate Air Filtration System for Your Voorhees Area Home
When discussing air filtration and purification, there are a growing variety of different options to choose from. Usually HVAC systems have at least a standard 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 alternatives 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 should be able to remove the maximum percentage of impurities from the air. They are larger, providing the kind of air purity that is expected in a medical environment.
- Media air cleaners. The middle-grade air filtration system is the media air cleaner. These are still highly effective in removing a significant percentage of particles from the air, including dust, dander, pollen and other allergens.
- Basic air filters. The smallest and weakest air filtration option is the basic air filter. These filters will remove larger particles, but also will let many of the micro allergens pass through and back into the air.
The top rated air filtration systems use HEPA filters, which is the highest standard in air quality. These filters can capture the smallest microbes and can remove 99.97% of contaminants from the air, leaving behind pure air that is safe and healthy to breathe.
