How Electronic Air Purifiers Clean Your Air

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014 at 9:09 am

Part of your overall comfort has to do with the air you breathe. Is it clean? Is it good for your health? If you are concerned about your indoor air quality in Ponte Vedra Beach, or have worries about excessive allergens, you may want to consider adding an electronic air purifier to your air conditioning system. Room air purifiers can help with air quality issues, but, if you want a whole-home effect, Climate Masters has air purifier upgrades that can help you achieve both better air quality and comfort.

Types of Electronic Purifiers

There are two types of electronic air purifiers:

  1. Electronic precipitators
  2. Ion generators

Electronic Precipitators

Electronic precipitators clean the air by capturing airborne particles via electrostatic attraction. Using a small amount of electricity, electronic precipitators draw air through an ion section where particles are electrically charged. Oppositely-charged metal collection plates attract these charged particles and capture them. Plates need to be cleaned approximately every 3 months to remain effective.

Ion Generators

Ion generators have a similar process, but do not draw air through an ion section, nor do they have collection plates. Instead, ions are dispersed into the air where they charge particles; these particles then land on surfaces in your home, such as walls, tables and counters and are cleaned with regular house cleaning.

Benefits of Electronic Air Purifiers

  • Clean the air by capturing pollutants
  • Help with respiratory issues such as asthma and COPD
  • Help eliminate harmful chemicals
  • Help reduce allergens
