There are a number of way that people react to spring but, the initial instinct is to open those windows and doors, letting that fresh air into your Niagara Falls area home. Cleaning the house top to bottom usually follows, from dry cleaning the drapes to polishing the windows as the spring sun brightens the room. However, spring cleaning the surfaces of your home does not clean what should be the primary aspect of your home: the air.
Cleansing the air around you in your home will take more than a dust mitt and vacuum. While a lot of dust lands on surfaces, most of it is still floating in the air, recirculating through the house and HVAC system. The number one way to get your home truly clean this spring is to buy an air filtration system.
Choosing the Right Air Filtration System for Your Niagara Falls Area Home
When discussing air filtration and purification, there are many different options to select from. Usually 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 top choices in air cleaning, air cleaners and purifiers should be able to remove the largest 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 takeaway 99.97% of contaminants from the air, leaving behind fresh air that is safe and healthy to breathe.
