Is the air quality in your home not living up to your expectations? Many homeowners in Southern Pines, NC, and the surrounding area would agree. When standard air filters or even plug-in air purifiers aren’t enough, you should consider having a whole-home air cleaner installed in your home.
The whole-home air cleaner becomes a part of your HVAC system and is guaranteed to keep your air clean. Here are three reasons to consider a whole-home air cleaner.
Clean Air Throughout Your Home With An Air Purifier
All air filters are just that, filters. The whole-home air cleaner does more than just use a standard HVAC filter or portable, plug-in filter to keep your air pure. This system actually cleans your air, taking out more of the pollen, allergens, dust, and dirt that a standard filter may miss. In addition, rather than just keeping up the air quality in one room, as any portable air purifier would do, the whole-home air cleaner keeps all the air in your home clean.
The Trane CleanEffects™ filtration helps reduce ‘triggers’ that can cause respiratory distress. Many allergens are small enough they can get past the body’s natural defenses and can become embedded in lungs. CleanEffects filters down to .1 micron, so it is very effective at removing spores, pollen, bacteria, viruses, dirt and dust.
Less Strain on Your HVAC
Some air filtration and purification systems draw some of the airflow away from your cooling and heating systems. This forces your HVAC system to work a bit harder, costing you in efficiency and on your utility bill. The whole-home cleaner, however, keeps your air clean without you losing airflow, thus maintaining the efficiency of your system.
Your HVAC system’s standard air filter is recommended to be replaced about once a month. Whole-home air cleaners, on the other hand, don’t need such maintenance until three to nine months have passed. Remember, even though you may not need to replace anything every month, it’s still important to check the condition of your cleaner once a month.
When it comes to air quality, especially in a home with children or others prone to allergens or asthma, it’s vital to find a system that works effectively. With the whole-home air cleaner, you’ll be able to experience great air quality.
