Did you know that the air inside your house may be up to five times more polluted than the air outside? This is because as we seal and limit air circulation from the outside, the quality of the air inside your house decreases. Although opening your windows may cause a little bit of fresh circulation, installing and maintaining an indoor air purifier is the most proven way to ensure the air quality in your home is as high as possible.
Low air quality inside your home makes those who live there and visitors more susceptible to microscopic allergens, dust mites, fumes, dander and pollen. A properly installed air purifier removes these airborne particles and odors from your living environment, lessoning the risk of health complications. Consider that the air quality in your home is just as important as the water you drink.
As a home owner, there are different styles of air purifiers to choose from.
These purifiers create a cloud of charged particles inside the purifier’s housing unit. This cloud collects contaminants, causing them to drop to the air duct surface. These captured particles are cleaned as your regularly clean the ducts.
Activated carbon purifiers clean air as contaminated air passes through specialized filters made from a very porous grade of carbon. Contaminated air particles adhere to these carbon filters, allowing the purified air to pass through.
Ultra Violet Air Purifiers
These operate in a much different manner than previously mentioned. High ultra violet light waves are used to destroy or sterilize infectious germs and organisms.
