When summer rolls around, most people tend to focus on staying cool. While you certainly want to keep your home cool and comfortable this summer, it should be far from your only concern. Poor indoor air quality is quite common in homes across the country, even outside of the summer season. If your indoor air quality is poor, it can have an adverse effect on both your health and comfort. One of the best ways to maintain your home’s indoor air quality is to install an air cleaner in your home. Let’s take a look at some of the more common air cleaner types, and how they can help you.
An air filter is a closely woven fiber mesh that is stretched across a section of ductwork in your home. As air flows through the filter, any contaminants it carries become trapped in the fibers. The filter needs to be cleaned out every few months, in order to get rid of the collected contaminants. Air filters are among the most popular type of air cleaner on the market.
An ionization purifier releases clouds of ions during operation. As contaminants come into contact with the ions, they grow heavier and heavier until they fall out of the air entirely. Then, they just need to be swept up and thrown away.
A UV air purifier is a large lightbulb that gives off a high amount of ultraviolet light. Most bio-infectious organisms, like viruses, bacteria, and mold spores, cannot withstand high amounts of UV light. Most varieties of these contaminants are sterilized or destroyed upon contact. So, the system keeps you healthy by preventing infection.
