Although central air systems filter the air before heating or cooling your home, they are not true air purifiers. An effective air purifier will pull particles from the air and provide you with a cleaner indoor breathing space.
With indoor pollution a great concern for young children and seniors, we want you to understand the basics and benefits of purifier use. Ready to install your new unit? Contact us for service in the greater San Diego County area.
You may not notice indoor air particulates and pollution, but your body responds to them. Although you can place potted plants in your home to help clean the air naturally, air purifiers actively route air through their filters. You should notice less dust settling on furniture, allowing you to skip a dusting session.
If any household members suffer from upper respiratory issues, such as asthma or allergies, their symptoms will not be as severe indoors. Odors from cooking, cleaning, or vehicle emissions are also eliminated. For example, if you park your car in the garage, exhaust emissions inevitably enter your home as you walk in. Air purifiers remove these emissions, making it safer to breathe your indoor air.
Not all air purifiers are built the same. Some of the more budget friendly models use electrostatic filters to remove large particulates (such as dust) from the air. However, you won't clean the air of smoke or emission particles with this technology.
More effective air purifiers:
HEPA air purifiers: For more effective results, look toHigh-Efficiency Particulate Absorption (HEPA)filters.These purifiers use a mesh design that works in conjunction with the purifier's forced air. As the air moves through the HEPA filter, particulates as fine as tobacco smoke become trapped.
Carbon air purifiers: Similar to the HEPA construction, carbon filters use the natural element's mesh configuration to create multiple sheet layers. Air moves through this filter as particulates are systematically caught in the mesh.
Ion air purifiers: In contrast, ion air purifiers use the concept of capturing dust on a surface using ion attraction. The purifiers create ions to latch onto particulates, forcing them to form on a given surface for air purification.
Along with removing particulates in the air for easier breathing, serious ailments can be avoided with an air purifier in your home.
For example, mold spores can circulate throughout your home. If you breathe them in, you can get sick. In severe cases of indoor air pollution, you may avoid being sick for many years, but then contract a more chronic issue.
What’s important to keep in mind is that you should constantly be removing toxins from your air. Because most people remain indoors for a large part of each day, the indoor environment is just as important as the outdoor pollution levels.
