Should You Have an Air Purifier Installed?

Your HVAC system comes with an air filter. Do you know its purpose? If you think it is to protect your indoor air quality, you’re only partially right. The primary function of this air filter is actually to protect the inside components of your HVAC system from dirt, debris, and other particles that can impact the performance of your system.

An electronic whole-house air purifier is what you should use if you truly want to improve and protect the quality of your indoor air. Keep reading to learn more about why we strongly recommend this indoor air quality product.

It Helps You Target Small Particles Missed by Standard Filters

A decent air filtration system can certainly stop larger pollutants like dust and hair dander. However, smaller pollutants—under 0.3 microns—can easily pass through them. This includes gases, foul odors, and chemicals. An air purifier, however, is designed to remove much smaller pollutants and helps to give you the cleanest air possible.

It Reduces Allergies and Other Illnesses

While you may not be able to reduce your exposure to pollen when you are outdoors, you most definitely can when you are indoors! When used in conjunction with the right air filtration device, air purifiers can eliminate 99.9% of the unhealthy air contaminants that increase allergy, cold, and flu symptoms.

It Assists Your HVAC System

Standard air filters have a tendency to create air flow restrictions against air moving through the ventilation system—particularly if they are not changed or cleaned often enough. No matter what, your air filters should be changed every 1-3 months during periods of use.

While the use of a clean air filter is absolutely necessary, one of the benefits of an air purifier is that it uses either ionization or UV radiation to clean the air, and provides no strain on air flow, helping your HVAC system to work more efficiently.
