Residential Air Cleaners

COURSE NO: M07-003
PDH CREDIT: 7
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Residential Air Cleaners
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides basic information about air cleaners for residential use. It discusses the types of air-cleaning devices and technologies available, metrics that can be used to compare air-cleaning devices, the effectiveness of air-cleaning devices in removing indoor air pollutants, and information from intervention studies on the effects that air cleaners can have on health and on health markers.

 

The best way to address residential indoor air pollution usually is to control or eliminate the source of the pollutants and to ventilate the home with clean outdoor air. But source control is sometimes impractical as a remedial measure, and ventilation may be limited by weather conditions or the levels of contaminants in the outdoor air.

 

If the usual methods of managing indoor air pollutants are insufficient, air-cleaning devices may be useful. Air filters and other air-cleaning devices are designed to remove pollutants from indoor air. They can be installed in the ductwork of most home HVAC systems to clean the air in the entire house, or the same technology can be used in portable air cleaners that clean the air in single rooms or specific areas. Most air-cleaning devices are designed to remove particles or gases, but some destroy, degrade, or transform contaminants that pass through them.

 

This 7 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical, civil and environmental engineers, architects and contractors as well as other technical professionals interested in gaining a better understanding about air cleaners for residential use.
