Electronic Air Cleaners: When Particulate Matter’s Of Particular Importance
Here in Pasadena, particulate matter that can affect indoor air quality may include dust, mold, pollen, dander and pollution from the outdoors. When you utilize electronic air cleaners in your home, you can improve the quality of your air, and depending on what you prefer, choose from a few different types.
Electronic polarized media cleaners, for example, charge the particles from the air that enter them. Those particles collect on internal fiberglass pads. Some of these electronic polarized media cleaners also have carbon filters available; these help trap odors in the air as well as chemicals produced from off-gassing.
Electronic precipitator cleaners are similar to polarized cleaners, except the collection surface is a metal plate that needs to be cleaned off periodically in order for the unit to work efficiently. Clean air is passed back into the home, but often these units pass a bit of ozone back into the indoor air as well.
Clean indoor air is more than just pleasant to breathe: It can keep you healthier. Removing particulate matter from your indoor air can improve symptoms associated with allergies, asthma and other respiratory illnesses.
