You are well aware that indoor air is much more dangerous than outdoor air. There are many contaminants in your house that you won’t find outside.
This is because contaminants can quickly disperse into the outdoor air. There are many odors that can be found in the room, including those from cooking, perfumes, and air fresheners as well as insect repellents.
Animal lovers also have to deal avec animal dander.
Because they can contaminate our air, these impurities can have a serious impact on our health. You should use conditioners using powerful filters. One example of such a filter is the “Electrostatic Filter?.
Electrostatic Filters – The Principle
These filters remove static electricity from the air. This is a natural phenomenon that occurs naturally and safely.
The electrostatic charge is created when the air flows through a maze made of static-prone fibers. This attracts airborne particles. These particles are held in the charge until they are washed away.
Electrostatic Filters – The Working
Multiple layers of vented metal are used to filter the air through electrostatic filters. When the filter crosses the first layer, the impending friction between the air molecules and the filter charges them positively.
These positively charged molecules attach themselves to the filters’ subsequent layers, ensuring that pure air is produced.
Pros and Cons of Electrostatic Filters
- It is easy and quick to clean. This will ensure that you have years of trouble-free cleaning.
- It improves airflow and provides maximum filtration.
- These filters can remove pollen, dust, and bacteria as well as spores and animal dander. These contaminants typically have a PM10 or lower level.
- These electrostatic filters don’t need to be replaced as often as activated carbon filters.
- Although the replacement cycle for activated carbon filters is shorter than that of activated carbon filters it takes longer to clean these filters.
- The principle of static electricity causes dust particles to stick to the duct lines. These particles, which are charged with ions and stick to the surface, make it difficult to clean.
- These filters block airflow more than the others. The AC units will have to work harder in order to cool the room.
How to clean electrostatic filters
It is important to clean these filters regularly as dust can impede airflow. It is recommended that you clean your filters once every 4 to 6 weeks. It is easy to follow.
- Take out the AC’s air filter
- Rinse with water in the opposite direction. The cleaners will do a better job if the pressure is higher.
- Rinse the filter on the opposite side
- To remove stubborn stains, use specific cleaners
- Rinse well to get rid of any dirt.
- Before reinstalling the screen, drain the water.
Different types of electrostatic filters
There are many types of electrostatic filters on the market, depending on their arrestance capacities. For heavy-duty AC units, the standard range of electrostatic filters is 82% assistance. The 94% arrestance capacity filters are available.
Use of Air conditioners
These electrostatic filters can be found in certain Daikin Air Conditioner models. These filters have many benefits, including a lower replacement frequency.
These filters need to be maintained. These filters are easier to clean than activated carbon filters which can become ineffective after clogging pores. The activated charcoal filters must be replaced, but it is not required for electrostatic filters.
