Selecting a whole home air cleaner is easy.
Air cleaners are rapidly gaining in popularity, because an increasing number of homeowners are realizing the importance of good indoor air quality. Lots of consumers are finding that for a relatively small investment, the health and comfort of their families can be dramatically improved.
Comfort Services recommends several top-quality air cleaner systems, and our expert technicians and quickly install them alongside your home's existing HVAC system.
To help you start your search, here are three tips from the experts on selecting the right air cleaner for your home:
1. Choose a Whole Home Air Cleaner
An air cleaner system that treats the whole house is the only way to go. This kind of system will remove the pollutants from the air in every room of your house, from your bedroom all the way to the basement. Whole home air cleaners can remove small particulates from your entire home, including dust, dust mites, pet dander, mold spores, pollen, bacteria, viruses, smoke, and more.
This type of system will provide a very noticeable difference in your home's indoor air quality, especially during periods when it is not possible to open doors or windows to let in fresh outdoor air. When your home has been closed up tight for several winter months, you will be glad to have a whole home air cleaner.
2. Choose an Air Cleaner with Activated Charcoal
Air cleaners typically come standard with a HEPA filter to catch very fine particulates, but it is also important to choose a cleaner that features activated charcoal. Activated charcoal is the only way to combat volatile organic compounds (VOCs), such as formaldehyde and chlorofluorocarbons, in your home's air supply. A charcoal filter can also reduce chemical vapors, cigarette smoke, pet-related smells, and flatulence odors.
3. Choose an Energy Star-Certified Air Cleaner
Most new appliances are now certified by Energy Star. Nobody wants to spend more money than they need to. Purchasing an Energy Star-certified air cleaner ensures that your new filter will have a minimum impact on your energy bill.
