Homeowners are more concerned about their indoor air quality than ever before. Far too many modern buildings have indoor air quality far worse than the air quality outside—sometimes three to five times worse. One of the reasons for this is the tight construction of modern buildings. This improves energy efficiency, but it reduces the amount of fresh air that moves through a building to sweep away indoor contaminants.
Because you probably spend more time in your house than ever before, improving your indoor air quality is important for your health and your family’s. You have several options to boost indoor air quality, such as having an air purifier in Brockport, NY professionally installed.
What are the benefits of using an air purifier?
Stopping Smaller Pollutants
Air purifiers use ionization or ultraviolet light to eliminate various pollutants from circulating through the living spaces of a house. Where an air filter is effective at stopping larger pollutants (dust, dander, lint), many smaller airborne particles can slip through them. An air purifier is an effective “partner” with an air filter at eliminating a wider range of unwanted particles. Purifiers can remove odor molecules, smoke, pesticides, gases, volatile organic compounds, microbes, viruses, mold spores, and bacteria.
Spring is when air purifiers really shine for improving home health. Allergy season can be a terrible time for many people because of the increase in pollen in the air. Many allergens can pass through filters, but air purifiers effectively target them. If you have household members who suffer from allergies, the right air purifier installation can make spring (and other times of the year) easier to bear.
Yes, air purifiers can help improve energy efficiency in your home. Extremely powerful air filters can make it harder for an HVAC system to push air through the ductwork to the rooms. Installing an air purifier removes the need to have such thick air filters, allowing the HVAC system to operate at better efficiency. Ionization air purifiers also make the filter’s job easier, since the action of ionization causes particles to clump together and get trapped in the air filter.
What Is a UV Germicidal Light Used For?
A UV germicidal light (a.k.a. a UV air purifier) is a type of air purifier that specifically targets organic pollutants. The ultraviolet radiation from a UV germicidal light disrupts the cellular structure of these pollutants, which either kills them outright or renders them unable to reproduce and therefore harmless. UV lights can eliminate a range of harmful pollutants that might be in your house: viruses, germs, bacteria, mold spores, and various microbes. UV air purifiers are also excellent at helping to eliminate odors from bacteria and mold.
