Spring is approaching and after the tough winter we have had, the most common instinct is to open those windows and doors, letting that fresh air into your Concord area home. The next step is spring cleaning your home, from pulling down the drapes to polishing the windows as the spring sun greets you. However, scrubbing the surfaces of your home does not clean what should be the primary aspect of your home: the air.
To rid your home of the dust and allergens accumulated from winter, it will take 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 proven way to get your home really clean this spring is to purchase an air filtration system.
Choosing the Best Air Filtration System for Your Concord Area Home
When discussing air filtration and purification, there are a growing variety of different options to select from. The majority of HVAC systems have at least a simple filter that will catch the larger particles and remove them from your air. This is step one on the road to better air in your home, but 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 best in air cleaning, air cleaners and purifiers should be able to remove the highest percentage of impurities from the air. They are larger, providing the kind of air purity that is expected in a surgical environment.
- Media air cleaners. The middle-grade air filtration system is the media air cleaner. These are still impressively effective in removing a high 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, yet unfortunately they let many of the micro 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 remove 99.97% of contaminants from the air, leaving behind fresh air that is safe and healthy to breathe.
