Whole Home Air Cleaners – Installed, Replaced
When trying to improve the indoor air quality in your Carol Stream or Wheaton area home, you may consider installing an air cleaner or air purifier. These devices filter unwanted contaminants out of your home’s air—allowing you to breathe easier and healthier air.
We’ll take a look at air cleaners on this page. For a thorough explanation of air purifiers please vist our Air Purifiers page
Air Cleaners or Air Purifiers? What’s the Difference?
Air cleaners filter out dirty, mold, and other microscopic pollutants from the air. Air cleaners serve the same purpose as an air purifier—to remove impurities from the air—but do so in a different manner.
How Air Cleaners Work
Air cleaners let air pass through a built-in filter to remove particles and are built directly into your HVAC system. They are installed between the air return duct and the furnace or air conditioner so that all air flowing in your home’s ductwork is cleaned. Air cleaners also help prolong the life of your heating and cooling systems and prevent dust, dirt, and other debris from building up inside the units.
What Do Air Cleaners Filter?
Air cleaners filter out a variety of air pollutants, including:
- Pet dander
- Tobacco smoke
- Dust mites
Benefits of Installing Air Cleaners or Air Purifiers
Both air cleaners and air purifiers promote a healthy living environment and can both alleviate the symptoms of:
- Dry throat
- Itchy skin
- Both systems also reduce the likelihood of catching many common illnesses in your home, such as a cold or the flu.
