Do I Need an Air Cleaner for My Home?

By: First Choice Air on November 20, 2014

At First Choice Air in Los Angeles, we are proud to provide more than just heating and air conditioning products and services for your home. We're also here to help you to feel comfortable that the air in your home (which your family breathes day after day) is as clean and safe as possible. While there is no reason to panic if you don't have an air cleaner for your home, we would like to give you some reasons why investing in a product, such as a UV Treatment System or an Electronic Air Cleaner from Honeywell may be worth its weight in gold for you and your family.

It's no secret that the air quality in Los Angeles leaves a lot to be desired. The lack of rain and the accumulation of toxins in the air can cause a whole host of medical problems. While First Choice Air can't help to clear the smog from the San Fernando Valley, we can certainly help you to maintain a home with clean air.

Two of the main types of air cleaners that we suggest for Southern California homeowners include Ultraviolet Treatment Systems and Electronic Air Cleaners. Here's an overview of how they work:

Ultraviolet Treatment Systems

Ultraviolet treatment systems for your home provide all sorts of benefits. They are enormously beneficial for homeowners who have allergies, or who have friends and family with allergies. They are also perfect for those concerned with energy efficiency, as they lessen the burden put on your heating and cooling system by keeping the coils free from dirt, buildup and the growth of mold or mildew. Over time they will likely save you money on your heating and cooling bills as well, as they promote efficiency in your heating and cooling systems.

At First Choice Air, we highly recommend Ultraviolet Treatment Systems from Honeywell, for their ability to reduce the growth of mold, spores and bacteria by up to 99%. We also carry the products here in Los Angeles, and are available to install the system throughout Southern California, including Ventura County and the San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys. All UV Treatment Systems sold and installed by First Choice Air come with warranties as well.

Electronic Air Cleaners

Electronic Air Cleaners also help to clean the air in your home. These whole-house electronic air cleaners utilize an electronic charge to collect up to 99% of airborne particles found within your home. Suffice to say, that makes them highly effective in capturing both large airborne contaminants including pet dander and mold spores, as well as capturing microscopic particles such as dust or smoke. These types of air cleaners, such as those made by Honeywell are installed into your Southern California home's heating and cooling system, and require almost no maintenance. There's no need to change any filter every month. Instead, in order to maintain efficiency of the air cleaner, you simply need to wash the cells which are used to capture the airborne particles from time to time. Even better? Electronic air cleaners are compatible with gas, oil and electric forced air furnaces and air conditioning system.

Because of our outstanding relationship with our manufacturing partners including Honeywell, First Choice Air is able to offer our Southern California clients the most aggressive savings available on Honeywell Ultraviolet Treatment Systems and Electronic Air Filters.
