Types of Air Cleaners in Phoenix
There are two major types of Phoenix air cleaners to choose from. The first is mechanical and is designed to remove larger particles like dust, pollen and dander. These mechanical air cleaners work by moving air over a media filter in which anything larger than a certain size is captured; the finer the filter, the smaller the particles that are captured. In some cases, HEPA filters can capture contaminants as small as 0.3 microns, meaning it removes almost all dander, dust, pollen and mold spores that pass through it.
There are different grades of air cleaner, all measured on the MERV scale. The higher rated filters remove more particles but not all high MERV filters are compatible with all models of air handler so it is important to discuss your options with a technician before deciding on any one system.
Electronic air cleaners offer further protection by actively removing gas and smoke particles through a process known as ionization. This process charges the particles in the air and separates them from the air flow. It only works well for those smaller particles, however, so it will not be effective alone for common allergens like dust.
Phoenix Air Cleaner Installation
Once you select an air cleaner for your home, installation is a relatively simple process that can be done in a single day. Most air cleaners can be installed directly into your air handler and work on day one to start removing particles from indoor air. Supplemental tools are available as well for larger homes or for those that don’t have a comprehensive ductwork system that can be filtered in such a way.
