Are you dealing with the consequences of having poor-quality air in your
home? If you’re dealing with frequent allergies, scratchy throat,
sneezing, foul odors, or dry skin, the air around you could be the cause.
You may not realize it but when the air in your home is low-quality, dust,
dirt, mold and mildew spores, pollen, and other allergens and debris could
be floating in the air around you, causing a number of these symptoms.
Fortunately, there’s a pretty simple solution: install an air purifier
in your central heating and air conditioning system!
How They Work
Air filters are the most common type of purifier. High-efficiency particulate
arrestance (or HEPA) filters are designed to allow particles no larger
than 0.3 microns wide to pass through (roughly 30 times smaller than the
width of a human hair). These filters are the gold standard in air purification,
but they require you to have a system which can handle the added resistance
of such a dense and restrictive filter. Likewise, if you have poor air
quality, you’ll need replace these filters pretty often.
Carbon filters and UV purifiers are also popular options. Carbon filters
use absorbent pores to capture airborne pollutants that pass through the
filter, such as chemicals, odors, and smoke. However, they’re not
great at capturing dust or allergens, so use them in tandem with a high-quality
A UV purifier is a popular addition in Florida due to our high levels of
humidity. Mold and mildew love to grow in moist, dark places, such as
the inside of your air conditioner where water condenses. As they grow,
they produce more spores which can lead to negative health effects when
you breathe them in. A UV purifier negates this issue by zapping the spores
with ultraviolet light, killing them before they can cycle back into your home.
An air purification system can greatly benefit your whole home. These systems
can even get rid of odors from things like pets, rotting food, or other
household smells that you may or may not even be aware of. They can stop
smoke odors from damaging your furniture, drapes, or carpets. And perhaps
most importantly of all, they can help keep you in good health by removing
allergens and other potential hazards like mold spores from the air, neutralizing
them before they have the opportunity to do any more significant damage.
