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 Ocala area home. Oftentimes spring cleaning is not far behind, from pulling down the drapes to polishing the windows as the spring sun greets you. However, wiping down the surfaces of your home does not clean a critical aspect of your home: the air.
Ensuring the air you breath in your home every day is clean will require more than a dust mitt and vacuum. While a lot of dust lands on surfaces, the majority is still floating in the air, recirculating through the house and HVAC system. The best way to get your home truly clean this spring is to purchase an air filtration system.
Choosing the Best Air Filtration System for Your Ocala Area Home
When it comes to air filtration and purification, there are several different options to pick from. Usually HVAC systems have at least a basic filter that will catch the larger particles and get them out of your air. This is a starting point toward clean, fresh air but 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 top choices in air cleaning, air cleaners and purifiers can remove the largest percentage of impurities from the air. They are larger, offering the kind of air purity that is expected in a medical environment.
- Media air cleaners. The medium air filtration system is the media air cleaner. These are still very effective in removing a high percentage of particles from the air, including dust, dander, pollen and other allergens.
- Basic air filters. The smallest and weakest air filtration option is the basic air filter. These filters will remove larger particles, yet unfortunately they let many of the smaller allergens pass through and back into the air.
The best air filtration systems use HEPA filters, which is the highest standard in air quality. These filters can capture the smallest microbes and can remove 99.97% of contaminants from the air, leaving behind clean air that is safe and healthy to breathe.
