Washington, DC Air Purifier Services by Magnolia Plumbing, Heating & Cooling

When it comes to cleaning your air, there are a number of products that are available. While air filters can be great for capturing allergens and dirt, you may be looking for something a little more powerful, like an electronic air purifier. As you can probably guess from the name, these air purifiers use electricity to help clean your air, and their capture technique is very different from that of an air filtration system.

Magnolia Plumbing, Heating & Cooling provides air purifier services in Washington, DC and the surrounding areas.

Two Types of Electronic Air Purifiers

If you are considering an electronic air cleaner for your home in Washington, DC, you have a choice between two types of air purifiers: an electrostatic precipitator or an ion generator. With the first type of air cleaner, the components reside in a small cabinet. A fan draws air into the cabinet to an ionization section where all the particles are charged. These particles are then moved to an area where there are oppositely charged electronic plates where the particles are captured. It’s important to clean these metal plates every three months to ensure their continued effectiveness. The second type of air purifier is the ion generator. This type of air cleaner disperses negative ions into the air where they attach to particles in your air. These newly charged, attached particles are attracted to the surfaces in your home where they cling until the surfaces are cleaned off.

Where Are Electronic Air Cleaners Installed?

Like many other indoor air quality products, ion generators and electrostatic precipitators are installed as part of your existing HVAC system. As such, it’s important to use only trained IAQ experts for all work, including installation, service and maintenance. Our experts bring 50 years of experience with them to every job, so you won’t have to worry about our pros when you call us for help. We’ll make sure your electronic air purifier is integrated perfectly with your system so you can gain the benefits of cleaner, healthier air right away!

What Kinds of Contaminants Do Air Purifiers Capture?

Because air purifiers use electricity to capture particles, they are very effective at capturing a number of contaminant types for removal, including:

  • Biological contaminants – spores, many viruses, many bacteria
  • Allergens – dust, pet dander, pollen
  • Odors – odors from cooking, cleaning supplies, painting materials
  • Smoke – tobacco, wood smoke

Adults inhale an average of 11,000 liters of air per day. Doesn’t it make sense to make sure your indoor air is as clean and healthy as it can be?
