Electronic Air Cleaners vs HEPA Filters

Improve your indoor air quality and live healthier with an air filtration system from Arctic Air Services.

Winter is right around the corner. Although it doesn’t get too cold here in the Sarasota area, as you start spending more time inside, it’s important to think about the quality of the air inside your home. There are many variables that decrease the air quality of your Florida home. The violent weather conditions and high humidity provide conditions that promote the growth of mold in your heating and cooling system.

Pollen, pet dander, dust and mites, bacteria, tobacco products, and pesticides can also lead to contaminated air in your Bradenton or Sarasota home. Don’t worry, the experts at Arctic Air Services provide solutions to your indoor air problem.

Electronic Air Cleaners

An electronic air cleaner attracts and filters 99 percent of airborne particles as it purifies your home’s air. How does it work? As air particles pass through the system, electronic air cleaners apply an electric charge to the dirty air particles. The charged air is then passed through a second electronic grid, trapping unwanted mold, dust, dirt, and allergens in the filter and re-circulating clean air into your Florida home.

Electronic air cleaners:

  • Are up to 10 times more effective than standard air filters
  • Are available for single rooms or your entire house
  • Can be integrated with your HVAC system
  • Clean 99 percent of filtered air
  • Extend the life of your heating and cooling system

HEPA Filters

High-Efficiency Particulate Air

HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters help remove unwelcome air contaminants in your Bradenton or Sarasota home. HEPA filters can be integrated into your in-home HVAC system and are some of the industry’s most trusted air filtration systems, required to meet industry standards for particle and bioaerosol filtration. In other words, high-efficiency particulate air filters offer the same strength of air filtration systems commonly found in hospitals.

How does it work? Rather than using a single sieve (a filter with holes big enough to trap some air particles while allowing others to safely pass through), a HEPA filter uses two unique devices to filter your air. Its outer defense uses one or more filters acting like sieves to catch large particles of dust, dander, chemical odors, and more. The second mechanism is a mat of glass fibers, used to catch large and small contaminated air particles moving at various air speeds. This dual-mechanism system ensures clean air is re-circulated throughout your home.

HEPA filters:

  • Are 99.97 percent effective
  • Can be integrated into your heating and cooling system
  • Remove odors
  • Increase indoor air quality
  • Extend the life of your HVAC system
