What Can an Air Purifier Do?

woman-with-allergiesWhen it comes to keeping your home safe, your first thought is probably going to be about checking door locks, installing floodlights, and even investing in a security camera or two. But do you ever think about whether or not the air in your home is safe to be breathing, day in and day out? If you weren’t thinking about this factor to your health and safety before, you may want to start considering it now.

See, airborne contaminants do more than just create a  layer of dust on the surfaces in your home–they can hinder your comfort and your health too. Thankfully though you are not without help. Our team installs air purifiers in Staten Island specifically because we know that you should be able to be optimally comfortable in your home and we know your indoor air quality plays a huge role in that.

Curious about air purifiers and how they can help? We are happy to answer your questions.

What Do Air Purification Systems Do?

Air purifiers come in a couple of different forms but they are made to accomplish the same goal: to purify the air in your home. What this means is that the system is going to address any unwanted contaminants that might try to make their way into your home via your ductwork system.  Air purifiers can use UV light or electrostatic shock to combat unwanted invaders such as dirt, dust, pollen, and other allergens, mold spores, viruses, and bacteria.

How Are Purifiers Different From Filters?

While some air purifiers can also filter the air entering your home, filters cannot purify much of anything. The key difference between filters and purifiers is that purifiers can sanitize or purify the air in your home, adding that extra layer of protection for your home’s indoor air quality.

How Do I Benefit From Installing an Air Purifier?

So how exactly does an air purifier help you in the long run? We are happy to give you some details on the answer to that question:

  • Tackles potential triggers for respiratory problems: Respiratory issues such as asthma can be aggravated by the presence of certain airborne pollutants. With the help of your purifier, you can reduce or eliminate these contaminants from your home, reducing respiratory irritation.
  • Gets rid of allergens: Pollen and dust can be the worst when they are trapped in your home making your sneeze and cough. With a purifier though you won’t have nearly as much trouble this spring.
  • Is installed into your ductwork: Air purifiers that purify the air for your whole home are installed into your ducts, meaning they won’t take up any extra space.

Needless to say, whole-home air purifiers are one of the best additions you can make to your home. If you are interested in adding one to your home to help your IAQ, we are only a call or click away.
