There are a number of way that people react to spring but, the initial instinct is to open your windows and doors, letting that fresh air into your Medina area home. The next step is spring cleaning your home, from taking down and washing the drapes to washing the windows as the spring sun greets you. However, scrubbing 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 need more than a dust mitt and vacuum. While some dust may coat surfaces, the majority is still floating in the air, recirculating through the house and HVAC system. The best way to get your home truly clean this spring is to buy an air filtration system.
Choosing the Right Air Filtration System for Your Medina Area Home
When discussing air filtration and purification, there are a growing variety of different options to choose from. The majority of HVAC systems have at least a simple 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 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 medical environment.
- Media air cleaners. The mid-level air filtration system is the media air cleaner. These are still highly effective in removing a high 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 tiny allergens pass through and back into the air.
The best air filtration systems use HEPA filters, which is the highest standard in air quality. Filters in this category can capture the smallest microbes and can remove 99.97% of contaminants from the air, leaving behind pure air that is safe and healthy to breathe.
