You may be surprised to hear that indoor air can actually be 2 to 5 times more polluted that its outdoor counterpart!
This is where a good HVAC system (heating and cooling) comes in. HVAC simply equals fresher air.
Even just the ordinary paper filters help to remove dust, dirt, bacteria, and mold from the air being recirculated throughout your home, but when you add in an air purifier it takes it to a whole other level. The question becomes a matter of price, convenience, and effectiveness. All wrap into one question. “Is it worth it?”
Let’s look at the benefits of air filtration
Those with asthma, allergies, and respiratory problems would likely chime in first agreeing that clean air is important. In reality, it affects all of us.
A good HVAC air purifier can
Trap dust mites
Block pet dander
Contain viruses and bacteria from spreading
Remove odors from smoke, trash cans, stoves and even pets
Neutralize smoke from cigarettes or fireplaces
Your home is where you sleep and spend a good deal of your time. The air is important. If you own a business, especially one that works with VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) such as wood shops, salons, printers, dry cleaners, or mechanic shops, all of them need to have strong filtration in place to keep their workers and clients safe.
Considerations for options when it comes to filtration
Carbon activated filters are a great choice for VOC removal and smoke and odor. These filters have small absorbent pores that trap contaminants.
HEPA filters trap more than 99% of airborne particles down to .3 microns and larger in size from entering your breathing space.
Ultraviolet technology is often used with HEPA air purifiers. While the HEPA filter will capture larger particles, an ultraviolet air purifier can kill micro-organisms. The ultraviolet light incinerates the micro-organisms as they pass through.
Many air purifiers also contain electrostatic fields that capture microscopic particles as small as .1 micron. This can include viruses. They clean the air by using static electricity. An electrostatic charge is generated by air flowing through a network of static-prone fibers.
Ionizing Air Filters
These use a negative ion generator, introducing negatively-charged particles that attract positively-charged air pollutants. As the particles clump together they become too heavy and fall from the air and attach to surfaces.
