Electrostatic Air Cleaner... What Even Is It?

Electrostatic Air Cleaner:

Polarized Air Cleaner? What weird sciency terms are these? Polarized just means that this air filtration option gives the particles in the air an electric charge. It speeds up the clumping process to get impurities that float in the air brought out of the air as dust.

As far as dust goes, it will actually make the dust "worse" because the filter will give the particles an electrical charge and make them clump up faster and fall out of the air as dust. This is to keep them from circulating in the ventilation system. After a time, the dust issue should slow down, but for the first while it will seem worse.One of the biggest culprits of our asthma/breathing issues is the minute microns we cannot see even as small as dust mite feces.

Your standard 1" filter that is designed to be replaced every 30-60 days only captures 2-4% of what circulates in your air ducting system. An electrostatic air cleaner not only captures but it destroys 97% of those contaminants. These filters are meant to be changed every 3-4 months depending on environmental conditions. Another huge benefit of these filters is that they can increase the lifespan of your HVAC unit
