Are you looking for a solution to the three D’s of Minnesota winter: dust, dander, and disease? Investing in an air filter system may be the answer. Electronic and ultraviolet air filters are two popular options to help improve the air quality in your home.

Electronic air filters use an electronic charge to capture air contaminants. This mixture of air and charged particles is then passed through a filter with the opposite charge, resulting in most of the particles being trapped. This system is effective in removing larger particulates like dust, pollen, and pet dander but is not as effective on smaller contaminants such as microorganisms.

Ultraviolet air filters, on the other hand, are better equipped to remove smaller germs as certain ultraviolet frequencies have the ability to disrupt the DNA of these organisms. However, these filters are not as effective when used alone as microorganisms can hide in small crevices and escape the UV light. An ultraviolet system is most efficient when used after most of the particulates have already been removed.

In conclusion, if you can only afford to purchase one system, it’s best to opt for the electronic air filter. But if you’re concerned about microorganisms in your home, consider purchasing both the electronic and ultraviolet filters for maximum protection.
