Maintaining your home’s indoor air quality is an important part of supporting you and your family’s health. Dust and other pollutants are constantly in the air, circulating throughout your home unless intercepted and removed. Using an electronic air cleaner can decrease the amount of these harmful particles in your home.
Particles that cause allergic reactions in people are small and invisible to the human eye. These minuscule particles can coat the surfaces of your furniture, walls and countertops, as well as collect in your carpets and drapes. By using an electronic air cleaner, you can help to reduce a large portion of these harmful particles.
How electronic air cleaners work
Electronic air cleaners use a three-step process to remove harmful particles from your home’s air.
- Larger particles, including lint and hair, are removed by pre-filters.
- The air is then forced through the cells of the air cleaner, which add an electric charge to the particles.
- Finally, these charged particles are trapped in the post-filter and cleaner air is released back into your home.
Electronic air cleaners are simple to maintain and use minimal electricity. If you choose to install an electronic air cleaner, remember to set up a routine maintenance schedule. Even if you plan on using an electronic air cleaner daily, you’ll need to clean it every six months by replacing the post-filter and washing the cells and pre-filters.
