Whole-house air purifiers work with your existing central heating and cooling systems. They are affixed onto your furnace or air conditioner, so they are out of site and noiseless as well. Unlike portable air purifiers that only purify the air in a single room, whole-house air cleaners clear air pollutants in your entire home.
There are several types of whole-house air cleaners. Some are mechanical; others are electrical. Some have UV lights, while others don’t. No matter which air purifier you have, however, chances are that eventually you may find that it needs to be repaired. But before you call your air conditioning repairman, you may want to try these simple steps:
Make sure the access door is closed and latched. If the door is open or unlatched, the interlock won’t allow the air cleaner to turn on.
Once you are through taking steps 1 through 3, it’s definitely time to call a professional. Many issues may be causing your whole-house air cleaner to not work properly. Sometimes it’s a simple part replacement. All parts are available through licensed heating and cooling contractors, so you’ll want to contact your local contractor.
