AIR CLEANER SERVICES IN BURLINGTON, UNION, HEBRON, FLORENCE, KY, AND SURROUNDING AREAS
You may be experiencing poor indoor air quality in your home or business if you struggle with congestion issues such as sneezing, coughing, and runny nose frequently. Airborne contaminants can make these symptoms worse, especially those who are very sensitive to these issues like asthmatics or those with intense allergies. Overall fatigue and itchy skin can also be health issues related to poor indoor air quality. Those with lung conditions such as asthma or COPD may have an even harder time living and/or working in a space with bad air quality.
When indoor air quality is lacking, it’s likely that extra money is being wasted on utility bills. Your heating and cooling systems rely on clean air and unblocked airways to run efficiently. Fortunately, air cleaners can be used to improve and enhance the quality of your indoor air.
WHICH AIR CLEANER IS RIGHT FOR MY HOME?
There are a few varieties of air cleaners out there. Depending on what you want to be removed from your air, and how much you want to spend on indoor air quality can help make the choice about which air cleaner is right for you.
MEDIA AIR CLEANERS
Media air cleaners are similar to your dryer’s lint trap. Basically, this type of air cleaner catches small particles of dust and dirt before they’re able to pass into your home from your HVAC system.
There are many different thicknesses and sizes of media air cleaners. They range in thickness from 1 to 4 inches. Generally speaking, media air cleaners are best at catching the largest particles of dust and dirt, but they don’t tend to catch smaller microscopic particles. It’s important to have your media air cleaner changed out every few months by professionals.
HEPA AIR CLEANERS
HEPA air cleaners are a bit more complex and will therefore catch more microscopic dust and dirt particles — all the way down to the .3 micron level. If anyone in your home struggles with COPD, asthma, lung cancer, or other breathing issues, you should at least have a HEPA filter installed on your HVAC system. Some modifications to your heating system will likely be necessary as well.
ELECTRONIC AIR CLEANERS
The best way to think about electronic air cleaners is like they are magnets for dirt and dust particles. Some modifications to your HVAC system will be necessary when installing this type of air cleaner. The filters in an electronic air cleaner will also need to be changed out by professionals regularly. Some electronic air cleaners will incorporate UV components, which can kill off viruses and harmful bacteria as well.
BREATHE EASY WITH WHOLE-HOME AIR CLEANERS
While some small unit air cleaners are sold in stores, keep in mind that these do very little to actually clean the air in your home. A better alternative is a whole-home air cleaner. Especially for those with children or families with members who have severe allergies or breathing issues. A whole-home air cleaner can ensure the air in your entire home is being cleaned, not just one section or room.
Now, more than ever, keeping your home free of disruptive bacteria, mold, mildew, dirt, dust, and other particulars is critical. Whole-home air cleaners can help keep you and your family safe from these tiny disruptors, allowing for increased health benefits. They can even reduce the viability of viruses in the home, and during the era of COVID-19, this is crucial.
In addition to the health benefits provided by whole-home air cleaners, home owners who use these systems will also benefit from lower utility costs each month, a more environmentally-friendly HVAC system, and a better overall living environment.
AIR CLEANER REPAIRS
When your air cleaner isn’t working, it’s time to contact Poston Brothers for maintenance or a repair. Overall, regular maintenance of your home air cleaner should keep the need for repairs at bay. However, sometimes, issues do occur that require immediate repairs.
Your air cleaner probably needs repair if you notice any of the following:
- Extra high monthly utility bills
- An air filter that looks visibly dirty or clogged
- Odd noises coming from the air cleaner engine
- A “check engine light” is on
- A return of coughing, sneezing, or other congestion issues that had gone away when you had your air cleaner initially installed
