Electrostatic Air Cleaners vs Air Purifiers

Electronic air cleaners and air purifiers are designed to do the same thing: clean the air. Installing either air cleaner works well to eliminate:Goodman electronic air cleaner & ionizer installation in Wisconsin

  • Dust
  • Pet dander
  • Mold contaminants
  • Pollen
  • Secondhand smoke
  • Radon
  • Cleaning product irritants
  • Germs
  • Bacteria
  • Chemical odors

While both technologies get the job done, they do so in different ways.

How Air Cleaners Work

Electronic air cleaners, or ionizers, work like a magnet to trap particles. Air particles are charged and then attracted to a collection plate with an opposite charge. An air purifier sucks air through a filter to trap the contaminants.

While air purifiers can cover the area of most homes, a business space or large house is better suited with an electronic air cleaner. Electrostatic air cleaners can clean twice the area of an air purifier, making it perfect for commercial installations.

Cleaning & Maintenance

While air purifiers require frequent filter changes, electronic air cleaners contain reusable collection plates that can be washed off in the sink. Electrostatic air cleaners don’t contain filters, keeping maintenance easy and cost-free. It’s recommended to wash your collection plate two to four times a year for maximum purification efficiency.

Cost & Benefits of Electronic Air Cleaners

By eliminating pollutants, electronic air cleaners:

  • Relieve allergies
  • Ease asthma & respiratory illness
  • Stop dry eyes
  • Reduce nasal congestion
  • Prevent headaches
  • Kill odor & germs

Easy breathing comes with a price tag. A whole-home ionizer installation costs (on average) $1400. Exact price depends on the size of the house/business and the electronic air cleaner brand. A higher MERV rating means more efficient purification. Southport Home Services offers Wisconsin’s best indoor air quality systems.
