Air Conditioner Repair Tools

Keeping your family as healthy as possible is more important than ever. At Gross Heating & Air Conditioning, that’s our priority, too—and we have the tools and products to help make that happen. One such tool? Home air cleaners. Read on to discover why these systems are perfect for reducing pollution inside your home (and call us at 262-783-6000 to install one for you).

What Do Air Cleaners Do?

Think of it as a “clean air machine” or a more advanced version of your indoor air filter. An air cleaner fits between your furnace and your home’s return ducts. Your indoor air passes through the system as it circulates, and the cleaner goes to work collecting any dust, dirt, or nasty airborne contaminants within it. When it’s done, only clean air flows through your home.

In short, it helps ensure you and your family breathe the healthiest air possible.

Are Air Cleaners the Same as Air Purifiers?

Not quite. Both an air cleaner and an indoor air purifier do the same thing: remove indoor pollution. The difference lies in how they go about it. While air cleaners remove pollutants from your home, a purifier captures and eliminates them completely.

What Pollutants Do Air Cleaners Get Rid of?

The list includes:

  • Dust
  • Dirt
  • Pet dander
  • Pollen
  • Mold
  • Mildew
  • Smoke

Air Cleaner Advantages

Healthy Living

Breathing cleaner air has numerous benefits for your health and wellness beyond preventing common colds. These systems filter out many airborne allergens, helping reduce symptoms of seasonal allergies and even asthma.

Fresher Home

Believe it or not, some of the contaminants listed above tend to stink if ignored. By filtering them out of circulation, an air cleaner can help your home smell as fresh as it is.

Longer Filter (and HVAC System) Life

On a lower scale, your furnace and AC filter also collects airborne contaminants. But it gets dirty as it does. If it gets too clogged, it can actually prevent your HVAC systems from pushing air through your home. In turn, the blockage can put more stress on your home comfort systems, causing more frequent problems or breakdowns. With an air cleaner on the job, you can prolong the life of both your filter and your systems while staying comfortable for longer.
