The media air cleaner is installed into the HVAC duct and traps contaminants as the air passes through
The extreme winter season conditions in my local area keep my family inside for more than half the year. With feet of snow on the ground, rapidly changing temperatures in the downsides and a dangerous windchill, we spend as little time outside as possible. It’s necessary to run the heating system from sometime in November or October until the end of April or even early May. Because of the high cost of heating bills, I take every precaution to seal up the house and prevent energy waste. I’ve upgraded windows, added insulation, installed ceiling fan and officially caulk and weatherstrip… Creating a slender thermal envelope elevates the efficiency of the heating system however also eliminates natural ventilation. Contaminants can become trapped in the house and endlessly circulated. There are potential sources of pollutants in every room of the house. The pet and processes such as cooking, showering and cleaning contribute to the problem. Odors, dander, dust, bacteria, viruses, VOCs and all sorts of harmful toxins can deteriorate the integrity of our breathing air, but poor indoor air quality can be blamed for several health conditions! Everything from coughing, sneezing, congestion and sore throat to respiratory infection, migraines and insomnia can be blamed on breathing unhealthy air. I am diligent about replacing air filters and scheduling professional repair for the heating system and air conditioner system. I have the HVAC duct tested, cleaned and sealed every few years. I’ve also taken proactive measures, such as the upgrade of a whole-condo media air cleaner. The media air cleaner is installed into the HVAC duct and traps contaminants as the air passes through. The device also emits positive and downside ions into the living space. These ions kill pathogens and cause particles to clump together and be more truly filtered out.
