Did you know the average American spends about 90% of their time indoors? This makes it critical to have clean, high-quality air flowing throughout your Indianapolis area home.
Unfortunately, the concentration of indoor air pollutants is two to five times higher than typical outdoor concentrations, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. This can be especially harmful to family members or friends who suffer from asthma, allergies or other respiratory illnesses.
If your indoor air quality is lacking, there are several tips to improve it by natural means, including mopping and sweeping frequently, placing large floor mats at every door and opening windows to allow fresh air in. However, one of the most effective ways to improve the air quality in your Indianapolis home is through the installation of a whole house air cleaner. To learn more about the benefits of air cleaners, contact the HVAC professionals at B&W today.
How Do Air Cleaners Work?
There are several air cleaners and air purifiers on the market, and each one works differently. However, all whole house air cleaners work with your home’s heating and air conditioning system to remove harmful contaminants such as dust and allergens from your air supply to improve the quality of your home’s indoor air.
B&W offers a couple of types of air cleaners:
AccuClean Whole-Home Air Cleaner by American Standard
The AccuClean system removes up to 99.98% of airborne particles from the filtered air and catches particles as small as .1 micron in size. This means that airborne contaminants such as dust, pet dander, pollens and mold spores are trapped in the system and prevented from circulating throughout your home.
iWave Air Purifier
The iWave air purifier is another effective way at eliminating airborne contaminants, but it works a bit differently than the AccuClean. The iWave is installed in the blower section of your furnace and works with your existing filter.
The iWave produces ions that break down pollutants and gases – such as mold, viruses, bacteria, pollen, and dander – into harmless compounds. The iWave also removes odors and does not produce ozone. With the installation of an iWave air purifier, you instantly improve the quality of your indoor air supply without any harmful byproducts. The iWave is maintenance-free and self-cleaning.
