Electronic Air Cleaners

The electronic air cleaner is a logical progression from a basic air filtration system. Electronic air cleaners vary from model to model, but most commonly rely on an ionization process in order to charge pollutants within the air drawn into an ionization chamber. The pollutants are then trapped on collector plates or, in some models, simply allowed to collect on surfaces within the house, from which they are easily removed during routine cleaning. Electronic precipitators fall into this category, and are commonly used in addition to standard media air filters.

UVGI Cleaners

While the one-two combo of air filters and electronic air cleaners is great for removing airborne pollutants from the air in your home, it is not ideal for dealing with biological pollutants, including viruses, mold, and bacteria. Even if the filters/air cleaners do manage to trap these pollutants, they can continue to reproduce in their captive state. Using a UVGI cleaner, such as UV germicidal lights, allows for the destruction of such pollutants, rendering them incapable of reproduction. This end is achieved via exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Contact us to learn more.
