Air cleaners have always been an option in the HVAC world, but as the technology in our field advances, air cleaners are becoming more and more popular. With the newer ECM, or variable speed motors, these air purifiers are able to run continuously, which improves the indoor air quality.
Now that we have a motor that runs at a low speed, low velocity, and low electrical usage, that air cleaner is incorporated 24/7. So, we are filtering the air in your house 24 hours a day, seven days a week, not just when you're calling for heat or cooling.
Continuously running air cleaners not only gives you cleaner air in your home, but it also helps regulate the temperature throughout your house. This helps keep a consistent temperature in your home, so you don't have any hot or cold spots.
However, with the air cleaning running 24/7, you will need to change the filter more often. Depending on the type of air cleaning equipment you have, and the type of filter you use, that could be anywhere from every 3 to 6 months.
When you do pull that old filter, you can see they get very dirty! That is because your air cleaner is working more effectively. All of that dirt is what you would be breathing in otherwise, and you wouldn't even know it!
