Spring is fast approaching which means the flowers are blooming and things are warming up. This makes it easier to plan outdoor picnics and get-togethers but harder to keep your home’s indoor air quality up to par.

You may not realize it but if you have a well-sealed home, then your indoor air quality may be worse than the air quality outside. We can help. Let’s discuss one of the best options to help you combat poor air quality in your home: an electronic air cleaner.

What Is an Electronic Air Cleaner?

An electronic air cleaner is an indoor air quality system that is installed within your ductwork. These systems utilize electricity to trap airborne contaminants that are circulating through your ducts.

Known as electrostatic attraction, an electronic air cleaner draws air through an ionization portion where they are charged. This allows the particles to be drawn to a plate and held there.

How an Electronic Air Cleaner Might Help You

We can talk about the cool technology that makes this kind of air cleaner helpful. However, it helps to know what the actual benefits of this system are.

Firstly, an electronic air cleaner is going to be highly cost-effective.

Secondly, these systems will prevent the continued circulation of airborne bacteria, mold spores, viruses, and other nasty particles.

Thirdly, electronic air cleaners help combat contaminants that would worsen allergies.

As if that wasn’t enough, these systems are relatively low-maintenance making them an investment that helps lower your energy bills, rather than adding to them. This is because the metal plate in the purifier can be cleaned easily, with a wet rag.
