Spring is approaching and after the tough winter we have had, the first instinct is to open your windows and doors, letting that fresh air into your Orlando area home. Cleaning the house top to bottom usually follows, from pulling down the drapes to Windexing the windows as the spring sun greets you. However, spring cleaning the surfaces of your home does not clean what should be the primary aspect of your home: the air.
Ensuring the air you breath in your home every day is clean will require more than a dust mitt and vacuum. While some dust may coat surfaces, most of it is still floating in the air, recirculating through the house and HVAC system. The only way to get your home truly clean this spring is to buy an air filtration system.
Choosing the Best Air Filtration System for Your Orlando Area Home
When discussing air filtration and purification, there are several different options to select from. Usually HVAC systems have at least a standard filter that will trap the larger particles and take them out of 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 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 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 medium air filtration system is the media air cleaner. These are still impressively effective in removing a significant percentage of particles from the air, including dust, dander, pollen and other allergens.
- Basic air filters. The least desirable 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. Filters in this category can capture the smallest microbes and can takeaway 99.97% of contaminants from the air, leaving behind pure air that is safe and healthy to breathe.
