Polar Bear Air Conditioning & Heating Inc - Air Cleaners

Air Cleaners & Service in Washington, DC and Northern Virginia

Air cleaners are an important element to include in your home heating, cooling and indoor quality system. They help to make sure that the air your family is breathing every day is clean and free of harmful contaminants. And many of them can even help to eliminate unwanted pet and smoke odors from your Washington, DC or Northern Virginia home.

Not all air cleaners are made to remove exactly the same types of contaminants either. Some are better at snagging certain allergens, while others do more to eliminate gasses and smoke odors. Because of these differences, it’s important to know what you’re looking for when you’re in the market for an air cleaner.

Here at Polar Bear Air Conditioning, we have a great deal of experience dealing with the various types of air cleaners on the market today. Because of this, we can easily help to guide you through the selection process, as well as complete installation of your new air cleaner. And once it’s in place, we’ll be able to service and maintain your system as well, so that you’ll never have to worry about whether or not it’s functioning effectively.

Clean or Purify?

Many first time customers who contact us are quite confused about the difference between an air cleaner and an air purifier. In fact, these are technically the same thing, but the label air cleaner typically refers to models that use filtration technology, while purifiers are more likely to use ionization technology.

In reality, the type of air cleaner best suited to you will depend on the types of contaminants you’re most concerned with removing. You don’t need to worry too much about whether to call your system an air cleaner or an air purifier, but you will need to figure out what types of contaminants are more abundant in your home and what the members of your household are more sensitive to.

Prioritizing Your Air Cleaning

If allergens like dust, pollen and pet dander are the biggest indoor air quality problem you’re dealing with, you’ll want to focus your search on air cleaners that specialize in removing this type of contamination. However, if smoke odors and gasses like carbon monoxide are the more prominent concern, you’ll need to consider products that perform better at eliminating those types of particles.

Air Cleaner Installation and Beyond

You can have an air cleaner installed as part of an entire home comfort system or you can have it put in after the fact. No matter what type of home heating or cooling system you have, our installation experts here at Polar Bear will be able to incorporate your new air cleaner into it.

We’ll also go over how the system works with you and show you how to change the filters so that you can be sure your system is doing the job it needs to all the time. Changing your filters regularly is an essential task to ensure that your air cleaner continues to be able to remove all contaminants from your indoor air.

And to compliment your efforts, our technicians are happy to come out to homes in Washington D.C. and Northern Virginia and perform regular maintenance checks as well as any emergency repairs you may need. So don’t hesitate to give us a call today to start improving your indoor air quality.
