How Does an Air Cleaner Work to Improve IAQ?

Air cleaners remove harmful particles like smoke, pollen, dander, dust mites and bacteria. As a result, they will improve indoor air quality while protecting your home from allergens and pollutants. Here’s how an air cleaner can work in your Big Stone Gap, VA, home.

Several Layers of Filtration

Most air cleaners have several layers of filtration, where the first layer is a low-efficiency filter, such as pleated filters or electrostatic precipitators made of fibrous, porous material. The second layer is a high-efficiency filter made from a special high-purity polymer. These filters are more effective than low-efficiency ones, making them ideal for improving indoor air quality.

Capturing MPPS

MPPS refers to the most penetrating particle size, a group of particle sizes smaller than 0.3 microns. These particles are prone to causing illnesses since they can easily pass through your airway.

Air cleaners can capture these particles by using high-efficiency filters. However, less-efficient filters capture particles with a larger diameter.

Removing Contaminants

Indoor air quality is a major factor in your health and happiness. Everyone has different health needs, but it’s reasonable to assume everyone wants to breathe clean air. A well-maintained, high-quality indoor air quality device will reduce the number of airborne contaminants that you breathe and the effect they have on your health.

Improving Your Health Over Time

An air cleaner contains specially designed filters that act as a barrier between the air you breathe in and outside your home. Over time, the air cleaner reduces the number of contaminants from the air you breathe, promoting wellness.
