Whether you’re tired of dust or concerned about allergens, a whole-home air cleaner can capture and remove nearly every pollutant, including smoke. Residents of Lakeland, FL can get bombarded by pollen and pollution. Fortunately, an advanced filtration system can provide an all-in-one solution to year-round indoor air quality challenges.
How Whole-Home Air Cleaners Work
Whole-home models function much like portable air purifiers, but they provide greater coverage and remove a wider range of pollutants. Many systems feature a deep pleated filter that provides a large surface area for particle collection and small pores that let clean air exit. Most units generate a low-level static electric field that allows the filter to attract and capture smaller particles.
The whole-home air cleaners that we install at Wards Air Conditioning are positioned next to your HVAC air handler and connected to the main ducts. Whenever your air conditioner runs, these systems remove particulates from the air passing through. This means that all of the air in your home is filtered multiple times per hour. Studies show that whole-home air cleaners can remove 99.98% of particulates as small as one-tenth of a micron. They’re ideal for removing the following contaminants.
- Plant pollen
- Pet hair and dander
- Lint and fibers
Capturing Germs to Prevent the Common Cold
Electrostatic air filters are ideal for capturing microscopic particles, but they have another benefit. The electrical current disables bacteria, viruses, and other forms of organic growth. Air cleaners can even destroy germs that cause strep throat and the flu to make the air cleaner and healthier. Additionally, filtration packages can be paired with a UV lamp for extra germ-fighting power.
Improving Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality
Specially designed whole-home air cleaners are almost 10 times more effective than potable products and 100 times more efficient than standard 1-inch AC filters. Best of all, maintenance is minimal. Just clean the reusable filter once every three to six months. To learn more about the benefits, check out our range of indoor air quality products online, or call us at 863-225-7202.
