pollen-and-dust

Having a home that is evenly and reliably cooled is all well and good–when you live in Prescott it is probably better described as essential. With that said, if your home has poor indoor air quality due to a high level of dust and other debris, you won’t exactly be able to enjoy that cooling comfort the way you should.

There are solutions to the problem of poor indoor air quality, thankfully. With the addition of an air cleaner or air filter to your home, you can enjoy improved indoor air quality and improved comfort too.

Not sure what kind of a difference an air cleaner can make? We are happy to tell you.

What Is an Air Cleaner?

Air cleaners are systems that are built to be a part of your HVAC system and clean or purify the air that passes through them. This means that whenever you turn on your air conditioner your air cleaner is automatically going to be up and running too.

These systems use either mechanical or electrical means to capture different contaminants from the air passing through your ductwork to keep it out of your home or, in the case of things like viruses or bacteria, to nullify it so it is no longer a threat.

What Are the Different Types of Air Cleaners

Our team works with the two main types of whole-home air cleaners: mechanical and electrical.

Mechanical air cleaners pass air over a filter that captures any particles that are larger than a certain size, such as dirt, pollen, and fur. These systems can come in a variety of sizes and the smaller the filter size, the smaller the particles are that can be captured. Some filters can be small enough to capture everything from dust to mold spores.

The other type of air cleaner is the electrical type. This cleaner charges the particles in the air to ionize them and separates them from the airflow. While this isn’t a solution for dust particles, it is great to remove things like gas and smoke particles.

Benefits of an Air Cleaner

If you opt to install an air cleaner to boost your indoor air quality in Prescott you can enjoy benefits such as:

  • Improved air quality: An air cleaner helps to capture and remove any unwanted particles from the air that are entering your home. This cleans the air which makes it easier to get comfortable because it will help keep your home cleaner too.
  • Better respiratory health: When you have an air cleaner installed in your home’s HVAC system it will remove many particles that could otherwise aggravate allergies or asthma. This means this system can help your respiratory health too.
  • Helps your HVAC system: With less dust and debris getting into your home there is less of these particles that are going to be able to get into your HVAC system, keeping your return air filter clearer and your system’s operation more effective.
