There are a number of way that people react to spring but, the initial instinct is to open those windows and doors, letting that fresh air into your Daytona Beach area home. Oftentimes spring cleaning is not far behind, from taking down and washing the drapes to washing the windows as the spring sun shines in. However, spring cleaning the surfaces of your home does not clean the really important aspect of your home: the air.
To rid your home of the dust and allergens accumulated from winter, it will need more than a dust mitt and vacuum. While a lot of dust lands on surfaces, most of it is still floating in the air, recirculating through the house and HVAC system. The best way to get your home ”the cleanest” of clean this spring is to purchase an air filtration system.
Choosing the Right Air Filtration System for Your Daytona Beach Area Home
When it comes to air filtration and purification, there are a growing variety of different options to select from. Most HVAC systems have at least a basic filter that will catch the larger particles and remove them from 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 choices 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 best in air cleaning, air cleaners and purifiers should be able to remove the largest percentage of impurities from the air. They are larger, providing the kind of air purity that is expected in a hospital 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 bare minimum 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 of the line air filtration systems use HEPA filters, which is the highest standard in air quality. Filters of this caliber can capture the smallest microbes and can eliminate 99.97% of contaminants from the air, leaving behind fresh air that is safe and healthy to breathe.
