As we’ve discussed before, poor indoor air quality can have a pretty huge impact on your health if you don’t do something to fix it. The air in your home is likely full of millions of microscopic airborne contaminants, capable of causing all sorts of problems from allergy attacks to asthma. If you want to address these issues, you’re going to need a quality air purifier installed in your home. There are far too many types of air purifiers on the market for us to cover them all here, but we can at least outline a few of the most popular.
The simplest and most popular type of air purifier, an air filter is just a fiber mesh installed in a central section of the ductwork in your home. Air is able to float through the filter just fine, but any particles it carries will be caught by the fibers. Then, the filter just needs to be removed and either cleaned or replaced to get rid of the particles.
An ionization purifier releases clouds of magnetically charged particles during operation. These particles pass on their charge to any contaminants they come into contact with. The charged contaminants are then attracted to metal plates inside the purifier, where they stick until the plates can be cleaned off.
UV Air Purifier
UV air purifiers give off higher than normal amounts of ultraviolet radiation. Most types of germs and other bio-infectious agents will die if exposed to too much UV light. So the UV air purifier lessens the chances of you getting sick by killing off the germs in your air.
