There are a number of way that people react to spring but, the initial instinct is to open the windows and doors, letting that fresh air into your West Chester area home. The next step is spring cleaning your home, from pulling down the drapes to washing the windows as the spring sun greets you. However, wiping down the surfaces of your home does not clean a critical aspect of your home: the air.
To rid your home of the dust and allergens accumulated from winter, it will require 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 number one way to get your home really clean this spring is to purchase an air filtration system.
Choosing the Appropriate Air Filtration System for Your West Chester Area Home
When it comes to air filtration and purification, there are several different options to select from. The majority of HVAC systems have at least a simple filter that will snag the larger particles and take them out of 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 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 leaders in air cleaning, air cleaners and purifiers should be able to remove the maximum percentage of impurities from the air. They are larger, offering the kind of air purity that is expected in a medical environment.
- Media air cleaners. The medium 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, however 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. These filters can capture the smallest microbes and can eliminate 99.97% of contaminants from the air, leaving behind clean air that is safe and healthy to breathe.
