Dealing with poor indoor air quality in your home doesn’t have to be a trial. There are experts who can help you discover the best solution to the issue and then take care of installing the filters and/or air purifiers that will remove the contaminants circulating through your home. There are many different types of filters and purifiers currently on the market; below are three of the ones that your indoor air quality specialists will consider when it comes to selecting the right ones for your household’s needs:
1 – Mechanical air filters
These are the most basic types of air cleaning systems around. They consist of a medium that catches larger particles of contamination in the air as it moves through. The most common type of mechanical air filters are made from a mesh of fiberglass strands. The HEPA filter is a well-known type of mechanical filter, although it is too strong for use in most homes. A professional can find the filter that will do the best job without creating heavy air resistance that will harm your HVAC system’s efficiency.
2 – Electronic air purifiers
For eliminating smaller particles from the air, such as gas and odor molecules, electronic air purifiers make a good choice. These devices create an ionization field that changes the charge of pollutants, then draws the charged particles down to a pair of plates, where they can be cleaned and removed.
3 – UV air purifiers
If the air issues in your home come from viruses, bacteria, mold spores or other organic microbes, a UV air purifier is often the ideal solution. Using ultraviolet lights to destroy the cellular structure of organic intruders into the HVAC system, a UV air purifier can provide healthier air without any chemical contaminants.
