Electronic Air Cleaner

In this day and age, when so many people suffer from allergies, asthma or other respiratory problems, it can be very hard to accommodate everyone in a family without an electronic air cleaner. Electronic air cleaners are designed to purify air within the home so that people – and even pets – suffering from allergies, asthma, and other disorders are easily able to enjoy a high quality of life within the home.

There are several types of electronic air cleaners that can be used within the home to help combat allergens and asthma catalysts such as dust, pet dander, and pollen. These types of electronic air cleaners range from the very simple – air purifying machines that you simply plug into an electrical outlet – to the very complex – air purifiers that are installed as part of the home’s overall heating, air conditioning and ventilation system. Both the simple and the complex types of electronic air cleaners can be useful in preventing allergen and other respiratory stressors from entering the home, but of course, the more invasive and more complex system, which is also more expensive, is also the most effective when it comes to ensuring a wonderful quality of life for a family member or members suffering from allergies, asthma or other respiratory problems.

Small, portable and relatively inexpensive electronic air cleaners are often marketed under the name “air purifiers” or “air cleaners.” They are available on sale at department stores and home goods shops, and a home furnishings expert there can help you decide if a portable electronic air purifier is right for you. These small sized electronic air purifiers are often helpful in a home where people with mild allergies or asthma live, or in a home where electronic air purifiers are only needed seasonally. Small electronic air purifiers are also useful for areas in the home that simply need air purification some of the time. Examples of areas that would only need air purification some of the time include a workshop where woodwork or other heavy, dusty work is carried out or a room with lavish carpets, as carpets and cloth wall hangings are known as a haven for dust and other allergens. They would also be useful for a room where pets say exclusively within the home.

On the other hand, if you or someone in your family suffer from very bad allergies, very severe asthma, or a respiratory problem that inhibits quality of life, it would be wise to talk to a contractor or heating, air conditioning and ventilation professional about installing a house wide electronic air cleaner. Your HVAC professional would come in an install a filter within your HVAC system that removes small particles of dust, pet dander, pollen and other impurities.

Whole house electronic air cleaners often consist of a filter installed between a house’s air return duct and its furnace. This means that all air flowing into the furnace is filtered for impurities. This system removes dust, dirt and other contaminants from the air within the house, even if it has been tracked in by a person or a pet.

A home’s primary housekeeper would be delighted with a whole house electronic air cleaner. For one, aside from ensuring a high quality of life for any allergy or asthma sufferers, it also filters dust out of the house. No more will the home’s primary housekeeper be charged with dusting every day or even every few days. Ask your HVAC professional if a whole house electronic air cleaner is the right type of electronic air cleaner for you. And if you are installing a whole house electronic air cleaner due to someone in your family suffering from a respiratory condition, be sure to consult your doctor before making the investment for your home.
