Spring Clean the Air Within Your Fort Worth Home

March 02, 2015

When those first few beautiful days of spring come, the most common instinct is to open your windows and doors, letting that fresh air into your Fort Worth area home. The next step is spring cleaning your home, from dry cleaning the drapes to shining the windows as the spring sun brightens the room. However, scrubbing the surfaces of your home does not clean a critical aspect of your home: the air.

Cleansing the air around you in your home will take more than a dust mitt and vacuum. While a lot of dust lands on surfaces, considerably more is still floating in the air, recirculating through the house and HVAC system. The only way to get your home ”the cleanest” of clean this spring is to buy an air filtration system.

Choosing the Best Air Filtration System for Your Fort Worth Area Home

When it comes to air filtration and purification, there are a growing variety of different options to pick from. The majority of HVAC systems have at least a basic filter that will catch the larger particles and get them out of your air. This is a starting point toward clean, fresh air but you need a higher quality filtration system.

There are three basic alternatives when it comes to air filtration: air cleaners and purifiers; 2) media air cleaners and 3) basic air cleaners or filters.

  • Air cleaners and purifiers. The leaders in air cleaning, air cleaners and purifiers should be able to remove the maximum percentage of impurities from the air. They are larger, providing the kind of air purity that is expected in a medical environment.
  • Media air cleaners. The medium air filtration system is the media air cleaner. These are still highly effective in removing a large percentage of particles from the air, including dust, dander, pollen and other allergens.
  • Basic air filters. The bare minimum air filtration option is the basic air filter. These filters will remove larger particles, however let many of the smaller allergens pass through and back into the air.

 

The best air filtration systems use HEPA filters, which is the highest standard in air quality. Filters of this caliber can capture the smallest microbes and can remove 99.97% of contaminants from the air, leaving behind pure air that is safe and healthy to breathe.
