Electronic Air Cleaners
Electronic air cleaners are highly effective filters that clean air using electricity to charge the air. These electrically charged particles in the air are attracted to the filter and get trapped. Ionizers, which are a type of electronic air cleaner, emit negative ions to trap particles. Electronic air cleaners are quite effective having a MERV (maximum efficiency reporting value) rating of up to 16 (out of a 20). When new, electronic air cleaners can rid the air of particles as small as 0.01 microns (which can capture viral particles and bacteria). Ozone (although a potential lung irritant) is produced in small amounts by electronic air cleaners. However, this ozone is not only an air purifier on its own, but also produced at levels around 0.003 to 0.01 parts per million (ppm) – the FDA requires indoor ozone not to exceed 0.05 ppm and some outdoor levels in larger cities can exceed 0.1 ppm! Although electronic air cleaners are very effective and safe, if the ozone smell is bothersome, gaseous filters such as carbon filters can be added to absorb the odor.
