Electronic Air Cleaners

A lot of homeowners are able to alleviate issues such as aggravated allergy symptoms with the use of basic air filtration systems, which remove pollutants such as dust and dirt from the air as it passes through. However, other homeowners find that air filtration is simply not enough to deal with the problem. In such events, an electronic air cleaner, such as the electronic precipitator, is a great option to consider. Such systems draw air into an ionization chamber, wherein the pollutants within that air are given an electric charge. They are  then collected on oppositely charged plates, which are removed for easy cleaning.

Pollutant Destruction

While the above mentioned systems are fine for many airborne pollutants, they are not going to effectively deal with biological pollutants, such as viruses, mold and bacteria, which can continue to thrive and reproduce even after they have been filtered out of the air. Destroying these pollutants, and rendering them incapable of reproduction, is really the way to go. This goal can be accomplished with the use of UV air purifiers, or UV germicidal lights, which emit small, safe amounts of ultraviolet radiation within one’s ductwork. While they pose no threat to members of the household, they are devastating to these troublesome biological pollutants. Give us a call to learn more.
