Indoor Air Quality
The quality of the air in your
home -- how clean it is and how much humidity it contains -- is important to
your health, the life of your furniture and the overall performance of
your home comfort system.
Though most of us would
tend to think that air treatment - air cleaning and humidification is a
luxury, there are lots of practical reasons for making it part of your
home comfort system. Here's how special treatment for your air can keep
you healthier and more comfortable:
There's Something in the Air
Pet dander, tobacco smoke,
mold and mildew, dust, grease from cooking, and fumes from automobile exhaust and cleaning
solutions find their way into home's air every day. For those of us with
breathing problems or allergies, airborne pollen can be exceptionally
unhealthy and uncomfortable.
Even worse, these contaminants
eventually cling to your walls, your furniture, your clothing-- and your
lungs. To give you an idea of how much contamination is in the air you
breathe, take a look at a sunbeam on a sunny day. What you see is the
light being reflected from the visible pollutants in the air. But since
the pollutants you can see make up only about one percent of the particles
in the air, multiply what you see by one hundred and you'll get a better
idea how much pollution you're breathing.
How to Clean up Your Act
Of course, installing a
special electrostatic air filter isn't the only solution to cleaner indoor
air. You should start by controlling the sources of contaminants. For
example, limit the extent or the areas of your home in which you allow
smoking; use non-aerosol products; and clean your air conditioning, it's
filters, your air conditioner and range exhaust hood filters regularly.
You can also cut down on indoor contaminants by circulating them outside
through open windows or an exhaust fan.
Unfortunately, these methods
by themselves still leave most of the pollution in the air. An
electrostatic air filter is an efficient way to enjoy healthier, cleaner
air. In fact, it can remove up to 85% of the dirt, bacteria, viruses and
other contaminants you're now breathing.
An electrostatic filter combined with an
ultraviolet light is a winning combination
for cleaner indoor air. Basically, the electrostatic filter removes
particles from the air by using static electricity to attract positive and
negative dirt particles. Then the air passes through an ionization
chamber, which essentially "magnetizes" the airborne contaminants so that
they are attracted by and adhere to collector plates within the
ultraviolet light. All in all, giving the air you and your family breathe
"special treatment" can go a long way to creating the comfortable,
healthful environment we all deserve in our homes.
Our advice: don't let your filters get old and
dirty. Do the simplest of maintenance jobs each and every month. Get your
hands dirty, and save your air conditioning system and your lungs.
