Spring is approaching and after the tough winter we have had, the most common instinct is to open the windows and doors, letting that fresh air into your Sharonville area home. Oftentimes spring cleaning is not far behind, from dry cleaning the drapes to shining the windows as the spring sun greets you. However, wiping down the surfaces of your home does not clean a critical aspect of your home: the air.
To rid your home of the dust and allergens accumulated from winter, it will take more than a dust mitt and vacuum. While you will see a lot of dust on your home’s 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 Best Air Filtration System for Your Sharonville Area Home
When discussing 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 snag the larger particles and remove them from your air. While this is a start, to have clean, fresh air that is free of molds, dusts and other allergens 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 best in air cleaning, air cleaners and purifiers should be able to remove the highest percentage of impurities from the air. They are larger, providing the kind of air purity that is expected in a surgical environment.
- Media air cleaners. The medium 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 least desirable 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 takeaway 99.97% of contaminants from the air, leaving behind pure air that is safe and healthy to breathe.
