There are a number of way that people react to spring but, the initial instinct is to open your windows and doors, letting that fresh air into your Long Island area home. Cleaning the house top to bottom usually follows, from pulling down the drapes to shining the windows as the spring sun brightens the room. However, spring cleaning the surfaces of your home does not clean what should be the primary aspect of your home: the air.
Cleansing the air around you in your home will require more than a dust mitt and vacuum. While some dust may coat surfaces, considerably more is still floating in the air, recirculating through the house and HVAC system. The number one way to get your home truly clean this spring is to invest in an air filtration system.
Choosing the Best Air Filtration System for Your Long Island Area Home
When considering air filtration and purification, there are several different options to choose from. Most HVAC systems have at least a simple filter that will trap the larger particles and get 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 leaders in air cleaning, air cleaners and purifiers should be able to remove the highest percentage of impurities from the air. They are larger, offering the kind of air purity that is expected in a surgical environment.
- Media air cleaners. The medium air filtration system is the media air cleaner. These are still very 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 rated air filtration systems use HEPA filters, which is the highest standard in air quality. These filters can capture the smallest microbes and can takeaway 99.97% of contaminants from the air, leaving behind clean air that is safe and healthy to breathe.
