Spring is approaching and after the tough winter we have had, the initial instinct is to open your windows and doors, letting that fresh air into your Canada area home. The next step is spring cleaning your home, from pulling down the drapes to shining the windows as the spring sun brightens the room. 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 invest in an air filtration system.
Choosing the Appropriate Air Filtration System for Your Canada Area Home
When discussing air filtration and purification, there are many different options to pick from. Usually HVAC systems have at least a basic filter that will catch 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 can remove the highest percentage of impurities from the air. They are larger, providing the kind of air purity that is expected in a hospital 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 best air filtration systems use HEPA filters, which is the highest standard in air quality. These filters can capture the smallest microbes and can eliminate 99.97% of contaminants from the air, leaving behind pure 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.
