Electronic air cleaners improve your indoor air quality by removing certain contaminants from the air inside your home. Rather than air filtration within your furnace or air conditioner, an electronic air cleaner may stand alone in your room to remove pollens, dust, bacteria, and viruses. However, Air Authority recommends a unit that actually attaches to your HVAC system. Air Authority discusses how electronic air cleaners work to improve the air quality within your home in today’s blog.
A pre-filter sits on the outermost part of an electronic air cleaner. This part is the first one that comes in contact with the air as it enters the unit. A pre-filter lessens the load of the interior parts of the air cleaner, so they last longer between cleaning intervals. Remove the pre-filter and vacuum it regularly for the best results. Electronic air cleaners should indicate when to clean the air filtration part of the device.
A charging mechanism maintains positive and negative charges on metal plates within an electronic air cleaner. The charger is behind the air filter and deeper within the unit. Particles are attracted to the charges, and they begin to clump together. Clumped particles are easier to collect. Some of the top electronic air cleaners trap up to 99.98 percent of particles down to 0.1 micron in width. For some perspective, this is 700 times smaller than the width of a human hair.
Electronic air cleaners collect these charged particles, so they stay out of the air within your home. Just like the air filtration portion of this technology, you can clean the collection areas with a vacuum to get rid of these particles permanently.
Electronic air cleaners work at variable speeds. Consider keeping yours at a low setting all day long for continuous results. This setting works well to save energy on its operation, but it also reduces your need to dust while improving your indoor air quality. You can increase the speed of the cleaner if you need to during times of sickness, when there are strong odors in your home, or when your pet is shedding a winter coat.
