Granbury H.V.A.C. Company, Glenn Aire, Discusses Pollen Removing Air Cleaners And Their 5 Best Features
Choosing the right pollen air cleaner is important, not only for comfort, but for your health. Here are 5 critical features that any effective cleaner should have.
24 hr Cleaning Capability
Many people assume that the vast majority of pollination happens in the spring. This is a misconception. The process actually begins as far back January, followed by grass in the summer, and weeds in the fall until the frost kills them in late November or early December. So any cleaner that is to be effective must work continuously to get rid of the spores that enter your home.
Multiple Filters For Removing Particles
Many allergens are particulates that will come in all sizes. Some of them are things such as:
- Dust mites
- Mold spores
- Pet dander
Having a unit that eliminates not just the pollen, but other chronic indoor irritants that often operate in conjunction with it, is a must.
This type of technology is vital for several reasons:
- Its only by-product is oxygen
- It emits zero ozone and ionized particles
- This is the method of filtration that hospitals use to insure clean air
- They have been proven to be able to remove 99,997 of 10,000 airborne particles which are .3 microns or larger in size
- It can remove seasonal allergens from outdoors as well as the chronic indoor triggers that are there on a regular basis
Variable Filtration Speeds
Some days the air will certainly be thicker when compared to others. On those days it’s quite an advantage to have the ability to keep irritants at low levels by being able to increase the speed to medium or high.
One of the most frequent complaints that individuals are likely to have with regards to an air cleaner is that either the filters don’t last or they involve a lot of maintenance such as washing, spraying, or recharging.
Usually maintenance means an interruption in filtration. And whenever that occurs, your air quality will suffer because irritant levels are rising every minute they are not being eliminated.
Selecting a cleaner that has a life of at least 5 years is one way that you can reduce maintenance and replacement costs. Contact Glenn-Aire today to ask us about your air filtration options.
