Why You Need An Air Cleaner
The air we breath is just as important to our health as the food we eat or the beverages we drink. Air quality is one of the most important and least thought about contributors to our health and well being. Your indoor air can be 2 to 5 timers more polluted than outdoor air, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. At AAA Air Control we make your indoor air quality one of our top priorities. As you weatherproof your house to block out the cold air, you are also sealing pollutants inside.
An air cleaner helps reduce the pollutants like dust, pollen and smoke. An air cleaner helps with allergies, cold and flu, asthma, and many other bronchial irritants by killing bacteria, viruses, mold and mildew.
Your indoor air quality is one of the most important elements of your family’s health.
Below, we’ve outline the core differences between air cleaners and air purifiers and how each system improves your home’s performance.
Air CleanersWhat Are Air Cleaners?
Air cleaners filter out dirty, mold, and other microscopic pollutants from the air. Air cleaners serve the same purpose as an air purifier—to remove impurities from the air—but do so in a different manner. How Do Air Cleaners Work?
Air cleaners let air pass through a built-in filter to remove particles and are built directly into your HVAC system. They are installed between the air return duct and the furnace or air conditioner so that all air flowing in your home’s ductwork is cleaned. Air cleaners also help prolong the life of your heating and cooling systems and prevent dust, dirt, and other debris from building up inside the units. What Do Air Cleaners Filter?
Air cleaners filter out a variety of air pollutants, including: Pet dander
And much, much more
A common question we hear from our customers is, “Are air cleaners and air purifiers the same thing?” The answer is simple—no.How Do Air Purifiers Work?
Similar to an air cleaner, air purifiers remove contaminants from the air. However, instead of using a built-in screen or filter, air purifiers zap impurities using UV (ultraviolet) germicidal lamps. This creates cleaner, healthier air for you and your family to breathe and improve the efficiency of your HVAC system. Not to mention, air purifiers operate silently so as not to bother you and your family with extra noise. What Do Air Purifiers Filter?
Air purifiers work to filter out the same pollutants as air cleaners, including: Pet dander
