When those first few beautiful days of spring come, the most common instinct is to open your 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, spring cleaning 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 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 truly clean this spring is to buy an air filtration system.
Choosing the Right Air Filtration System for Your Sharonville 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 trap 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 maximum 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 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. Filters of this caliber 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.
