Home Air Purification 101
How air purifiers can help you and your family
Most homeowners are not aware of what level their home’s indoor air quality is. Just because you don’t see something wrong, doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Residential air conditioning units can be a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and viruses but luckily there is a way to combat this.
Our HVAC systems can do a great deal more for us than simply cooling and dehumidifying the air. With an air purifier attached to the system they can also remove odors and clean and purify the air you breathe, which is of particular value to allergy sufferers, asthmatics and the high percentage of our population in Orlando who are 55 and older. Whole-home air purifiers use the same basic technology as room air purifiers, but apply it to your whole house via your HVAC system. Here are some reasons to look into an air purification system to improve the indoor air quality in your home:
Filters Are Optimum For HVAC System Effectiveness
The more complete air changes your environment is subject to, the cleaner and healthier it is likely to be. Using high efficiency particle arrestor (HEPA) filters can remove more than 99 percent of the physical contamination being moved around your home by the HVAC installation. Filtration of gaseous contaminants is very important because these tiny airborne toxins travel deep into the lungs, and often into our blood stream. That is why these particles in particular can cause much of the health damage associated with indoor air pollution.
Even YOUR System Can Have An Air Purifier Attached
Retrofitting an air purification installation to a pre-existing HVAC system allows all the original duct work, the same air handler and the same registers to be used. This can represent substantial savings on both installation and maintenance costs. So even your ten year old, well-running air conditioner can have this impressive accessory.
Whole-House Purification is the Best Way to Go
The equipment used for whole-house air purification is discrete and is usually located in the attic or crawlspace where your ductwork runs. Single-room air purifiers are bulky, free-standing machines that must be located, plugged in and switched on and off in the room they serve. You can save your time and energy by placing the whole-house purification system once and you won’t have to worry about it gain until it is maintenance time; a lot less hassle than the single room alternative.
Everyone wants the air in their home to be refreshing and safe. Installing an air purification system in your home will truly reduce airborne health problems and give your home a generally “clean” feel. No more icky, muggy or dusty feelings, not in your house!
