What Is an Electronic Air Cleaner and Do You Need One?

Clean indoor air is very important for our overall health. You don’t have to have asthma or allergies to be affected by air pollutants.

If your indoor air feels like it doesn’t let you breathe well or it always “smells” of something, you might have certain contaminants polluting it. For people with allergies, asthma or other respiratory issues, poor quality indoor air can worsen symptoms and dramatically lower the quality of life. To avoid the health risks and breathe more easily, you might want to invest in an electronic air cleaner.

What Is an Electronic Air Cleaner?

An air cleaner does exactly what its name implies: it cleans the air from pollutants and most particles that can affect your breathing. The technology usually relies on filters and ionized plates to collect the particles from the air and keep them away from you.

The electronic air cleaner, or air purifier, can be attached to your HVAC system. It is best if you leave the installation to the professionals, as it is very important to prevent errors and malfunctions. The air purifier uses electronically charged filters that attract particles and make them lump together and attach to the filters.

Many electronic air cleaners don’t need replacement filters, their maintenance involving removing and washing their filters.

What Type of Particles Does the Air Purifier Stop?

There are two types of particles that affect the quality of your indoor air: organic and chemical. Dust, animal dander, mold, dust mites will be stopped by the air cleaner, making your allergies and breathing problems a rare occurrence. Chemical pollutants such as pesticides, gas, paints, and adhesives or strong cleaning products can also irritate your respiratory system, leading to health problems. An electronic air cleaner will keep them out of the air, releasing clean indoor air.

What Are the Benefits of Installing an Electronic Air Cleaner?

It is clear that clean indoor air is very important for our overall health. You don’t have to have asthma or allergies to be affected by air pollutants. Asthma can be triggered by poor quality air and it only gets worse with time. Allergies can also be triggered by repeated exposure to the allergen, not in all people, but why take the risk?

The air that goes through the air purifier will be cleaner and healthier. Some electronic air cleaners have the downside of releasing small quantities of ozone, which can be slightly irritant to some people, but there are also ozone-free air cleaners on the market. So be sure to look for one that fits your needs.

If you want to really improve the quality of your home environment, call an HVAC expert and get an electronic air cleaner. You will notice the difference right away in how you feel and how much less often you have to clean the dust and carpets, for example. The initial investment is completely worth it once you notice how you feel.
