When those first few beautiful days of spring come, the initial instinct is to open the windows and doors, letting that fresh air into your Canada area home. Oftentimes spring cleaning is not far behind, from dry cleaning the drapes to shining the windows as the spring sun shines in. However, spring cleaning the surfaces of your home does not clean the really important 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, the majority is still floating in the air, recirculating through the house and HVAC system. The number one way to get your home ”the cleanest” of clean this spring is to purchase an air filtration system.
Choosing the Appropriate Air Filtration System for Your Canada Area Home
When discussing air filtration and purification, there are a growing variety of different options to pick from. Usually HVAC systems have at least a basic filter that will catch the larger particles and take them out of your air. This is a starting point toward clean, fresh air but you need a higher quality filtration system.
There are three basic options 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 can remove the maximum percentage of impurities from the air. They are larger, offering the kind of air purity that is expected in a medical environment.
- Media air cleaners. The medium air filtration system is the media air cleaner. These are still very effective in removing a large percentage of particles from the air, including dust, dander, pollen and other allergens.
- Basic air filters. The bare minimum 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 of the line 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.
When you catch “spring fever” and begin thoroughly cleaning your home, make sure you think about your indoor air.
