Many homeowners are surprised to find out that the air in our homes can be 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air outdoors.
These contaminants can reduce our comfort and harm our health, so you need to take action to improve indoor air quality. Len The Plumber Heating & Air offers an effective solution to this problem — whole-home air purifier installation.
Portable vs. Whole-Home Air Purifiers
Air purifiers are devices designed to clean the air in your home, eliminating harmful contaminants and improving air quality.
Whole-home air purifiers are integrated into your home’s HVAC system. They operate continuously as air circulates, purifying the air in your entire house. Portable air purifiers can only address pollutants in the air around them.
What Contaminants Do Air Purifiers Remove?
Whole-home air purifiers effectively eliminate a wide range of contaminants, including:
- Pet dander
- Mold spores
- Volatile organic compounds
They work with the air filters in your HVAC system. While filters capture larger particles, air purifiers work on a microscopic level, neutralizing contaminants that can’t be filtered out.
Benefits of Whole-Home Air Purifiers
Investing in a whole-home air purifier can improve your health and comfort. Benefits of installing an air purifier include:
- Reduced allergy and asthma symptoms
- Removal of airborne bacteria and viruses
- Reduced risk of mold spore proliferation
- Neutralization of unpleasant odors
- Cleaner indoor air
Types of Air Purifier Filters
Air purifiers use various types of filters to ensure clean, healthy air. At Len The Plumber Heating & Air, we use top-quality products to help you keep the air in your home as clean as possible. This includes:
- UV filtration: These purifiers use ultraviolet light to kill or deactivate airborne pathogens. They do not trap particles but effectively neutralize biological contaminants.
- HEPA filtration: High-Efficiency Particulate Air filters can capture 99.97% of particles that are 0.3 micrometers in diameter.
Whether you choose UV or HEPA filtration, we’ll ensure proper whole-home air purifier installation.
