In Texas we may not have the coldest winters but wonky weather can lead to severe allergy issues. Some people always have them and other develop them over time. Changing air filters in your home can help alleviate symptoms but installing an electronic air cleaner can do more!
An electronic air cleaner is a device that attaches directly into the HVAC ductwork that delivers air
throughout the whole house. It places a negative electrical charge on airborne particles and a positive electrical charge on the media and since opposites attract, it collects airborne particles like a magnet. Typical air filters remove particles that are about 750-1000 microns in size whereas an electric filter can remove particles that are less than 10 microns. This size is so small you would need a microscope to see them. Do not confuse electronic air cleaners with electrostatic air filters. The latter has poor efficiency and will degrade over time.
Benefits of An Air Cleaner
The benefits of installing an electronic air cleaner are more than just filtering the air. They are low maintenance. Electronic air cleaners can be easily removed, washed in the dishwasher or sink, and re-installed. Unlike regular air filters, they do not have to be changed out every three months. The runtime on electronic filters is based on the length of time the HVAC system runs. Most come with a 10-year warranty and can come with a fault light to remind you when the filter needs cleaning. They are also economical as they only use as much electricity as a 40-watt light bulb. Particles will never be able to get into the ducts so duct cleaning will be obsolete. This is one chore you will not have to worry about after installing an electronic air filter and having well sealed ducts.
The most effective whole-house air filtration system is the Trane CleanEffects. It uses patented technology that removes up to 99.98% of airborne allergens, including bacteria and viruses down to 0.1 micron. It has the lowest pressure drop with the highest efficiency possible.
