A portable air purifier is great for helping to purify and clean the air in a bedroom or another room in your home, but if you want to improve the air quality throughout your home, you’re probably interested in a whole-house air cleaner. These systems are built into your existing heating and cooling system (HVAC system), and they filter as well as purify the air as it passes through them. If you’d like to learn more about what a whole-house air cleaner has to offer, consult with a knowledgeable Coral Springs heating and cooling specialist today.
Whole House Air Cleaners Work with Duct-Based Heating and Cooling Systems
Whole house air cleaners work with duct-based HVAC systems and are generally built into the ductwork itself. There are two basic types of these cleaning systems:
- Return Air System – A return air cleaning system is installed where the air is returned to your furnace (before it is heated or cooled), and the air is cleaned as it passes through.
- Supply Air System – A supply air cleaning system is installed between your furnace and the vents, and it purifies the air immediately before it’s circulated throughout your home or office.
Both these systems require regular maintenance that usually amounts to changing the filters bi-monthly or cleaning the collector plates annually.
Whole house air cleaners come equipped with a variety of options that are based on your particular needs. If you have multiple pets, a smoker in your home, or a mold problem, for example, you likely have specific cleaning needs that you’ll want to discuss with an experienced HVAC professional.
