The best way to protect your home and family’s health while in the house is to start with a whole-home air cleaner. After all, if you can’t breathe in healthy air inside, where are you supposed to get a much-needed break from all of the toxins and airborne particles outside? While we also tend to heating and cooling systems in Carol Stream, we also provide services and products that can improve your indoor air quality, such as air purifiers and air cleaners.
There are many different types of air cleaners and your comfort consultant will be able to explain the differences for you. Many of these air-cleaning units are quite affordable, easy to install and maintain, and as intended, cleanse the air prior to breathing it into your lungs. Plus, you will have peace of mind knowing you are taking the necessary steps to improve the living environment for your family.
Air Cleaners vs. Air Purifiers
Air cleaners remove a wide variety of dust, pollen, allergens, and pollutants from the air by passing it through a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter. This is a mechanical filter that pulls airborne matter and presses it into a filter so it cannot be released and breathed in by humans or animals. These devices also protect and extend the life of your furnace. Air cleaners are typically installed between the air return duct and the furnace or air conditioner so that all air circulating throughout your home is cleaned. Investing in an air cleaner is a great way to extend the life of your HVAC system, as it prevents the buildup of dust, dirt and debris.
Air purifiers also remove contaminants from the air, but they utilize UV germicidal lamps in order to eliminate impurities. Air purifiers can help eliminate pet dander, pollen, dust mites, ash, mold, mildew, fungus and more!
Both air cleaners and air purifiers are useful in improving your home’s overall air quality. They both promote a healthy living environment and relieve symptoms such as allergies, eczema, asthma, dry throat, and itchy skin. They also reduce your risk of catching common illnesses like a cold or the flu. Our team can help recommend what is right for your home or place of business.
