How Do Electronic Air Cleaners Work?

Monday, November 3rd, 2014

Are you concerned about particle contamination in your home? You may want to consider the installation of an electronic air cleaner in Atlanta. There are a couple of types of electronic air cleaners to choose from, as we’ll explain below. It’s important to hire trained professionals for installation to ensure that you gain the full benefits of your electronic air cleaner, so call the professionals at Air Conditioning Experts, Inc., today.

Two Types of Electronic Air Cleaners

There are two types of electronic air cleaners, and each uses electrostatic attraction to trap particles; they just do it differently. The two types of air cleaners are:

  • Electrostatic precipitators
  • Ion generators

Electrostatic Precipitators

Electrostatic precipitators work by drawing particles into them with a fan. Once the particles are inside the cabinet, they enter an ionization section where they are negatively-charged. As the particles continue through the chamber, they are captured by oppositely-charged metal collection plates. These plates should be cleaned every 3 months to ensure the air cleaner stays effective.

Ion Generators

Ion generators also charge particles, but do it by dispersing negative ions into the air. An ion generator does not draw particles to it, nor does it collect charged particles on collection plates. Instead, the dispersed negative ions attach themselves to particles in your air; the ions are attracted to the surfaces in your home, such as walls and countertops, and collect there. The particles are removed when the surfaces are cleaned.

Electronic air cleaners can be added directly to your HVAC system so that they work automatically, as compared to individual room air cleaners that you have to manage on your own.

3 Tips for Improving Indoor Air Quality in Atlanta

Monday, January 14th, 2013

At Air Conditioning Experts, we understand the importance of a high-quality, reliable heating and air conditioning system in your Atlanta home. We also believe, though, that great temperature regulation is only one of the necessary components for achieving the complete comfort levels that want. The quality of the air that you breathe in your home is every bit as important and just as much of a priority as indoor temperature control. If you are dissatisfied with your indoor air quality levels, we can help. We have the products and services you need to breathe better air in your home. Here are some helpful tips for improving indoor air quality.

  1. Try to keep the surfaces of your home clean. You can stamp out your boots all you want, but it is impossible to get all of the dirt and debris off of them. If you have pets they are going to shed. Running the vacuum cleaner or doing a quick spot-sweep is important to maintain good indoor air quality. The circulation of air throughout your home from a force air heating and cooling system is a very effective way to distribute conditioned air. It is also a great way to stir up pollutants on the ground, causing them to go airborne.
  2.  Allow for proper ventilation. Keeping fresh air circulating throughout your home is necessary to maintain high levels of air quality. A problem that many homeowners run into is that they try to make their homes air tight during the heating and cooling seasons to conserve energy. It may be a great way to save a little on energy costs, but it also leads to stale, lower air quality. If you are looking for ways in which you can improve the ventilation in your home, contact Air Conditioning Experts.
  3. By far the best way to improve indoor air quality is simply to contact a team of indoor air quality specialists. Because there are so many problems that may affect your indoor air quality, it can be difficult to find the right solution. Working with a professional can ensure that you get the right indoor air quality products and services for you specific needs and issues. Contact Air Conditioning Experts for more information.
