When those first few beautiful days of spring come, the initial instinct is to open the windows and doors, letting that fresh air into your Pierre area home. The next step is spring cleaning your home, from dry cleaning the drapes to Windexing the windows as the spring sun greets you. However, wiping down the surfaces of your home does not clean the really important aspect of your home: the air.
Cleansing the air around you in your home will need more than a dust mitt and vacuum. While you will see a lot of dust on your home’s surfaces, most of it is still floating in the air, recirculating through the house and HVAC system. The best way to get your home really clean this spring is to buy an air filtration system.
Choosing the Right Air Filtration System for Your Pierre Area Home
When considering air filtration and purification, there are a growing variety of different options to choose 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 a starting point toward clean, fresh air but you need a higher quality filtration system.
There are three basic choices 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 will 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 hospital environment.
- Media air cleaners. The medium air filtration system is the media air cleaner. These are still highly effective in removing a large 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 tiny 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.
