The electronic way to a clean-air house

If you're seriously concerned about keeping the air in your house pure and clean, you're a good prospect for an electrostatic air cleaner. It can filter out airborne dust particles as small as one-millionth of an inch. That's over one hundred times smaller than the smallest dirt particle filtered out by conventional heating/cooling systems. Pure-as-possible air not only contributes to your family's health and comfort, it also reduces maintenance costs and housecleaning chores.
