There are a number of way that people react to spring but, the most common instinct is to open those windows and doors, letting that fresh air into your Belleville area home. The next step is spring cleaning your home, from pulling down the drapes to shining the windows as the spring sun brightens the room. However, spring cleaning the surfaces of your home does not clean what should be the primary aspect of your home: the air.
Cleansing the air around you in your home will take more than a dust mitt and vacuum. While a lot of dust lands on surfaces, the majority 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 buy an air filtration system.
Choosing the Appropriate Air Filtration System for Your Belleville Area Home
When it comes to air filtration and purification, there are several different options to pick from. Usually HVAC systems have at least a standard filter that will snag the larger particles and get them out of your air. This is step one on the road to better air in your home, 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 top choices in air cleaning, air cleaners and purifiers can remove the largest percentage of impurities from the air. They are larger, offering the kind of air purity that is expected in a surgical environment.
- Media air cleaners. The mid-level air filtration system is the media air cleaner. These are still very effective in removing a significant percentage of particles from the air, including dust, dander, pollen and other allergens.
- Basic air filters. The bare minimum air filtration option is the basic air filter. These filters will remove larger particles, yet unfortunately they let many of the smaller 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 eliminate 99.97% of contaminants from the air, leaving behind pure air that is safe and healthy to breathe.
