A whole-house air cleaner is installed as a part of your heating and air conditioning system, so that the air in your home is continuously cleaned every time your system runs. The air cleaner captures any potentially harmful contaminants through a filter media for the entire house. Whole-house air cleaners are generally available in two options, as a whole-house media air cleaner or a whole-house electronic air cleaner.
A Whole-House Media Air Cleaner captures airborne particulates by using a fabric-type filter. As air passes through the filter media, the fibers of the fabric capture and trap the airborne contaminants. The media air cleaner is a whole-house approach to air purification, which can remove up to 97% of pollen, dust and other large particles.
A Whole-House Electronic Air Cleaner uses advanced technology to clean the air in your home. When dirty air containing viruses, bacteria, dirt, pet dander and other airborne irritants enter the unit, an electrical field places an electric charge on the particles and collects them like a magnet. Contaminants and allergens are then permanently collected and trapped. Clean air is circulated back into your home so that you can breathe easier. The air cleaner maintains high air flow, allowing your heating and cooling system to operate at full efficiency while eliminating up to 99% of airborne bacteria-sized particulates.

Source removal duct cleaning is the cornerstone of any indoor air quality remediation program. Our duct cleaning system utilizes the HEPA-AIRE method, which is the most advanced source-removal system available. It is widely recognized as being the most significant breakthrough in duct cleaning technology in the past 30 years and is used by professionals throughout North America.
The key components of this system are the patented HEPA-AIRE portable power vacuum and the AIR-SWEEP® compressor. This system enables our HVAC technicians to reach and thoroughly clean your entire duct system with minimal noise and disruption. The vacuum is connected to your ductwork near your furnace. The duct cleaning technician then goes through your home and blows high-pressure air through your vent system starting from the furthest point and working towards the furnace. The final step is to blow air through the main ducts in your basement pushing debris towards the vacuum location.
