Indoor air quality is always a concern for homes across the country. Though many people don’t realize it, poor indoor air quality can actually cause quite a few issues for both health and comfort. Microscopic airborne contaminants are one of the biggest causes of poor indoor air quality. Dust, pollen, dander, germs, and mold spores can provoke allergies, cause illnesses like the flu, and generally make your life miserable. The best way to handle these issues is to install an air purifier in your home
UV Air Purifiers
A UV air purifier uses ultraviolet light to treat all air that flows through your home’s ducts. While this doesn’t do anything to remove dust or pollen from the air, it has quite an effect on many different kinds of bio-infectious organisms. Germs and mold spores of various kinds are sterilized or killed upon contact with high levels of ultraviolet light, preventing them from infecting you.
An ionization purifier uses clouds of ions to draw contaminants out of the air. As contaminants come into contact with the ions, they grow heavier and heavier until they drop out of the air. Many ionization purifiers include metal plates to collect these contaminants. The plates can then be removed and cleaned to remove the contaminants completely.
Air filters snare airborne contaminants using a fiber mesh, and are able to capture a wide range of different particles. They need to be cleaned or replaced every few months, in order to prevent them from becoming clogged. Still, they are among the most popular kind of air purifier on the market.
