People are spending a lot more time in their homes nowadays, and many are concerned with indoor air quality. That is one reason more and more homeowners are investing in air purifiers. With a global crisis among us, health concerns are at an all-time high, and the right air purifier can provide some peace of mind.
Portable Air Purifiers
A portable air purifier is a small device designed to reduce concentrations of airborne particles in whichever room it is placed. The air purifier sucks air into the device and passes its through filters. The filters trap pollutants such as dust, pet dander, and smoke.
A combination of two filter types is common in portable single-room air purifiers: a pre-filter to trap large particles such as pet hair, and a main filter to trap smaller particles such as dust. Both the EPA and the American Lung Association recommend choosing an air purifier that utilizes HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filtration.
Filters are typically washable or can be cleaned with a vacuum attachment. Others use disposable filters that could be costly over time but are a good low-maintenance option as long as you remember to change the filter based on the manufacturer’s recommendation.
Whole-House Air Purifier
Homeowners who want to cleanse the air throughout the entire house should consider whole-home air purification such as that provided by an Air Scrubber.
Air Scrubber uses UV light waves to create environment-scrubbing oxygen and hydrogen molecules. It uses very little energy and is low maintenance; no cleaning is required.
An Air Scrubber will not only reduce the amount of dust, pet dander, and other visible pollutants, it also has germicidal capabilities, meaning it can significantly reduce “invisible” contaminants such as bacteria and viruses all through the home. Rather than just capturing particles in a filter, this effective air purification system will actively destroy airborne and surface pathogens. As a bonus, an Air Scrubber can also help to extend the life of your HVAC system by preventing dust build-up in the system components.
If anyone in your home suffers from allergies or is sensitive to dust or odors, or if you simply want to protect your family from viruses and bacteria, an Air Scrubber can improve the quality of the air throughout your house.
