Cincinnati Whole House Air Purifiers

Cincinnati homeowners know how important indoor air quality is to the health and comfort of their families. The air in your home contains many types of air pollutants, dust pollen, and pet dander particles to name a few. For clean air, not just any old air purification system will do – portable units may filter air across the sq ft of one room, but cleaning the air throughout your whole home requires a whole house air purifier.

Address air pollution throughout every room of your whole home with the help of your HVAC system and a whole home electric air purifier. Performing effective air filtration through the use of a high-efficiency air filter and an electronic charge, this air purifier pulls pollutants from the air for excellent results. After installing an electronic air cleaner, you’ll find that air cleaning has never been easier, and your home air quality has never been better. Don’t settle for a portable air purifier that will filter air over just a few sq ft – choose a whole house air purifier with the power to make air cleaner across every room in your home.

There are many air purifier system models and air cleaners available for use with forced air HVAC equipment, which means you have a lot of options as you shop. Some use UV light, others an activated carbon filter or true HEPA filter for air purification. An electric whole-house air purifier is different than other types of air purification systems due to the way it uses electricity to enhance air filtration.

The electric whole-house air purifier is installed to work as the HVAC system circulates air through its ducts and equipment. Typically, you’ll find this air purification solution along the return air side of the system. System fan speed pushes air through the filtration system to clean the air during heating and cooling cycles. Indoor air across every square foot of the whole home passes through the filter for treatment.

While an electric whole-house air purifier works together with a furnace or HVAC unit, it serves as a means of additional air cleaning – it does not replace the air filter inside the furnace or the air handler of an air conditioning system. This type of air cleaner uses high-efficiency filters capable of removing tiny airborne particles, including those down to 0.3 microns in size, like many types of bacteria and viruses.

Air Purification with an Electric Whole House Air Purifier

This type of air purifier uses high-efficiency air filters as well as charged ions. As the air in your home moves through the filter, the ions latch on to pollutants from the air. The air filter is negatively charged and attracts the ions holding airborne particles to the filter, where they are trapped for good by the collector plates of the unit and cannot recirculate through the home. Once trapped, the electric charge is able to render airborne particles ineffective, neutralizing bacteria and viruses.

The filter used in an electric whole-house air purifier has a very high MERV rating, which helps the system clean air of extremely small particles down to 0.3 microns in size. While HEPA filters are more efficient, they are often too powerful for the home HVAC system and block airflow which harms HVAC equipment and makes it difficult to maintain comfortable conditions indoors. Unlike a true HEPA filter, the filter used in this air purifier facilitates good airflow through the system, so you receive enough conditioned air in your home. The electric charge provides germicidal capabilities, controlling air pollutants in a manner that HEPA filters cannot.

Addressing Indoor Air Quality Problems with a Whole House Air Purifier

Room air can be rife with air pollution, containing high concentrations of airborne particles such as dust, pet dander, and other allergens that create poor air quality. The use of an electric air purifier means the particles are removed from the room air supply and pathogens like bacteria and viruses are no longer a threat.

Electric air purification removes particles from the air in your home, including:

  • Pollen
  • Dust
  • Mold Spores
  • Pet Dander
  • Fumes
  • Smoke
  • Bacteria and Viruses

There are no activated carbon filter products or true HEPA filters needed – just a high-efficiency air filter and an electric charge.

Why Cincinnati Homeowners Love Electric Whole Home Air Purifiers

Homeowners throughout the Greater Cincinnati area and the surrounding communities who have forced air conditioning and furnace systems choose an electric filtration system as the best whole-house air cleaner because:

  • Whole-house air purifiers are much more effective than media air cleaner units and portable air cleaning products. A portable air purifier is meant to be used in a space with fewer sq ft than the whole house, like a small living room or bedroom. Air cleaners typically use an air filter with a lower MERV rating, so it leaves more air pollution to circulate – especially the smallest particles around 0.3 microns. Portable air cleaning devices and whole-house air cleaners do not offer the filtration coverage that an electric whole-house air purifier is capable of.

  • Electric air purifiers are safe for use inside a home. Ozone is a byproduct of how electricity is used by the product, but only trace amounts of ozone enter the home environment. The amount of ozone this air purification method generates is only 5PPB or parts per billion. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends under 50PPB of ozone exposure inside a healthy home.

  • With an air filter that lasts up to one year, vast volumes of room air are treated without the need for maintenance and filter replacement. This air purifier filter does not need to be cleaned every few weeks like the filter of a portable air cleaner, nor are there collection plates that must be cleaned.

  • The best whole-house air cleaners feature quiet operation, so you are not disturbed by their operation. They do not consume a lot of electricity, so they do not cost much to operate.
