Consider an in-duct air purifier to improve your home’s air quality.
The air you regularly breathe is polluted with a wide variety of airborne contaminants. These include mold, dust, pollen, dander, bacteria, and airborne viruses. Some are allergens and lung irritants. Others are more dangerous and potentially infectious. Remove these contaminants from your home’s air. It is vital to having good air quality for you and your family. Regardless of the air conditioning system you have, it is a good idea to install an air purifier.
Typically, it is only when one’s immune system is compromised that you might start to notice your body’s response to your home’s poor air quality. Also, when there is an atypically large concentration of the bacteria or contaminant released, you could notice problems. Unfortunately, it’s not difficult to end up breathing in a fairly substantial amount of pollutants. An air purifier can be a good solution.
Based on how your air conditioning system works plus the fact that we live in south Florida—what feels like the Humidity Capital of the World sometimes—the air ducts throughout your home are breeding grounds for mold and other allergens. These toxins blow into your home when you turn on your HVAC system. This immediately decreases your indoor air quality.
Regularly having your duct system cleaned by professionals is one of the best ways to help prevent these pollutants from affecting your family. In addition, another option is to install an air purifier. An air purifier removes contaminants from the air. Therefore, once you’ve made the decision to install an HVAC air purifier, the next step is to determine the best type for your needs and budget.
Options include UV lights installed within the AC system to neutralize any germs using ultraviolet light. There are also electronic air purifiers that capture airborne particles using electric fields. Another choice is between whole-house air purifiers or a system, such as a portable air purifier, that only cleans one room. Less expensive options include using a HEPA filter alone or in combination with activated carbon filters or pre-filters. To sum up, no matter your needs or budget, there is a system that will improve the air quality in your home.
