Installing an air purification system is one of the best ways to keep harmful contaminants from causing respiratory symptoms and reduce your HVAC systems’ efficiency.
At Len The Plumber Heating & Air, we offer top-quality air purifiers that make a noticeable difference in your home’s air quality, ensuring your home remains safe and comfortable.
Portable vs. Whole-Home Air Purifiers
When it comes to air purification, homeowners generally have two options: portable air purifiers or whole-home air purifiers.
Portable air purifiers are designed to eliminate contaminants from the air in a specific room, providing localized purification. On the other hand, whole-home air purifiers are seamlessly integrated into your ductwork to treat the air supply for your entire home.
While portable air purifiers can provide targeted purification, whole-home systems offer greater coverage, ensuring that all the air inside your home is thoroughly treated and cleaned.
Whole-home air purifiers also have higher efficiency ratings than their portable counterparts, making them the better option for maintaining clean air while minimizing energy usage.
How Do Air Purifiers Work?
Air purifiers eliminate airborne contaminants from your air supply for better indoor air quality. They rely on specialized air filtration technology, such as:
- UV filtration: Ultraviolet light kills or neutralizes airborne pathogens, such as bacteria, viruses, and mold spores, targeting the DNA of these microorganisms to render them harmless.
- HEPA filtration: High-Efficiency Particulate Air filters are highly effective at capturing microscopic particles as small as 0.3 microns. They’ll trap dust, pollen, pet dander, and smoke.
Benefits of Air Purifiers
Adding an air purification system to your home can provide many different benefits for you and your family, including:
- Relief from allergy symptoms
- Improved respiratory health
- Elimination of unwanted odors
- Reduced spread of airborne illness
- Easier breathing
