What are the Benefits of an Air Purifier?

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 air filter.

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.

Experience Relief

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.
