There are a number of way that people react to spring but, the first instinct is to open the windows and doors, letting that fresh air into your Kitchener area home. The next step is spring cleaning your home, from dry cleaning the drapes to washing the windows as the spring sun brightens the room. However, spring cleaning the surfaces of your home does not clean a critical aspect of your home: the air.
Cleansing the air around you in your home will take more than a dust mitt and vacuum. While you will see a lot of dust on your home’s surfaces, the majority is still floating in the air, recirculating through the house and HVAC system. The proven way to get your home truly clean this spring is to buy an air filtration system.
Choosing the Best Air Filtration System for Your Kitchener Area Home
When discussing air filtration and purification, there are several different options to choose from. Most HVAC systems have at least a basic filter that will snag the larger particles and remove them from 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 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 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 hospital environment.
- Media air cleaners. The mid-level 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 smallest and weakest 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 best air filtration systems use HEPA filters, which is the highest standard in air quality. These filters can capture the smallest microbes and can takeaway 99.97% of contaminants from the air, leaving behind fresh air that is safe and healthy to breathe.
