Should You Invest in an Air Purifier?

We’ve had a good deal of rain this winter. That means we will be seeing a lot of flowers and plant growth for the next couple of months. While visually beautiful, this is actually a time when anyone with allergies is likely trying to hide indoors to prevent an allergy attack.

While the blooms are wonderful to see, they also signal the time of year when high wind, dust, pollen, and other airborne debris can be at their worst. How do you combat this in your home? When you use an air purifier in Palo Cedro, CA you are going to give yourself a much better chance at getting through allergy season with a clear head and reliable comfort.

What Is an Air Purifier?

An air purifier is a kind of indoor air quality system. These can come as portable or whole-house models, both of which seek to help clean the air in your home. The difference is that a portable air purifier helps with one room, while a whole-house air purifier seeks to clean up all of the air in your home.

Types of Air Purifiers

There are two main types of air purifiers that you may want to be familiar with: an electric air purifier and the UV light purifier. Both systems are installed in your ductwork, but they approach the job of cleaning your home’s air differently.

The electric air purifier uses electricity to charge particles that are passing through your ductwork. This allows them to be magnetically pulled to a metal plate where they are captured until the plate is cleaned off. Electrical air purifiers literally remove contaminants from the air flowing into your home.

On the other hand, you have the UV light system. As the name suggests, this purifier uses ultraviolet light to clean the air. This method can provide one of two results. The first result is that a piece of debris is broken down and destroyed. The other result is that the contaminant is altered at a genetic level, preventing it from growing and spreading in your home. These systems are especially helpful for fighting viruses, bacteria, and mold.

The Perks a Purifier Provides

When you install a whole-house air purifier, you deserve to enjoy some benefits. That is why it helps to know that you can expect the following perks from these systems:

  • Less dust: A good purifier can help to reduce the amount of dust and debris that circulates around your house.
  • Better HVAC operation: Cleaner air will be easier for your heater and air conditioner to use. That means better air quality helps improve your home comfort.
  • Reduced allergies: Ever-circulating dust and debris are going to be potential triggers for allergy symptoms and other respiratory problems. Using an air purifier helps to keep these issues to a minimum when you are indoors.
  • Reduced illness: We touched on this a moment ago but air purifiers really can help reduce the risk of illness affecting people in your home. This is because they either destroy the airborne contaminants or render them as harmless as dust.
