There are a few choices homeowners have when it comes to cleaning the air inside the home, and one choice you may opt for is an electronic air purifier. There are two types of electronic air purifiers that you can install in your Lithia home, and they both use electricity to clean your air, but each does so a little differently. Why is it important to have clean indoor air? Good indoor air quality is as much a part of your indoor comfort as having the right temperature and humidity levels. It can be hard to achieve good indoor air quality, which is where the installation of an air purification system comes in. However, gaining the benefits an electronic air purifier can offer you and your home is dependent on correct installation.

The Electronic Precipitator
The first type of electronic air purifier we are going to discuss is the electronic precipitator. This type of air cleaner resides in a small cabinet, and the device is seamlessly added to your HVAC system for easy and convenient operation. The way an electronic precipitator works is that it draws air into it, bringing the particles in the air into something known as an ionization chamber. In this chamber, the particles are negatively charged; once charged, the particles are collected on oppositely-charged metal plates. It is recommended that the metal plates are cleaned every 3 months for the precipitator to remain effective.
The Ion Generator
Ion generators also charge particles in the air, but they do it a little more simply than electronic precipitators. Rather than attract particles to it, ion generators simply disperse negative ions into the air, and these negative ions attach to particles in the air, becoming a single, negatively-charged particle. These charged particles are attracted to the various surfaces in your home and land on them; when the surfaces are cleaned, the particles are removed.
