Here are some of the benefits of investing in an air purifier for your home and family.
An air purifier can be a costly investment. The unit can be expensive and of course it also costs you to run it. So are they worth the investment? Many people believe that they are for a number of different reasons. Consider a few.
An Air Purifier Will Reduce Dust in Your Home
This is very beneficial if someone in your household suffers from allergies, removing the dust from your home with a HEPA filtration system can really help. This type of filter will remove over 99% of the dust particles in the air of your home. It will also remove dust mite debris which is highly allergenic.
However, you can make the situation worse if you don’t change your HEPA filter regularly as microorganisms can grow on the filter and be spread around home.
They Can Help Remove Cigarette Smoke from the Air
Of course the best way to eliminate cigarette smoke and odors from your home is to give up smoking, or at least smoke outdoors. But if you choose to smoke indoors, you can at least get rid of some of the smoke from the air, and therefore some of the smell, by using a carbon air filter. These absorbent filters absorb the pollutants in the air. The good thing about this type of filter is that it traps the pollutants rather than simply circulating them. Also available are ionic air purifiers. These don’t filter pollutants, instead they send out negative ions which attach to the smoke particles in the air. They become too heavy to float in the air and so they sink to the floor, ready to be dusted up. However, one word of warning, these ionic air purifiers give out ozone and this can cause allergies in some people.
Combating Mold with an Air Purifier
If you have a problem with mold spores in your home, this can be very worrying, especially for the elderly or if you have young children. A HEPA filter will help with this, but you can also ask your St Louis HVAC technician to install UV germicidal lights in your HVAC system. As air passes over the lights, any mold spores in the air will be eliminated.
