Air purification systems are all the rage these days and for good reason! They’re a powerful way to mitigate germs of all sorts while keeping your home free of odors and any other microbial particles that could impact your health. However, while many homeowners might like the appeal of an air purifier in their home, they don’t actually know how they work and hesitate when it comes time to invest in an indoor air quality machine. So, in light of trying to spread information that’s accurate and useful, we’d like to talk about these systems and how they work.
Not just any HVAC company in Gloucester County, NJ can provide sensible indoor air quality solutions in this day and age. Thankfully, our team is full of trained specialists who are experts in the field of air purification and the elimination of germs.
How Does an Air Purifier Work?
We provide services on two different types of air purifiers. One of them is air ionizer purifier, and the other is the ultraviolet light air purifier, both working in different ways to keep your indoor air treated. Let’s take a look at how each one works.
The air purifiers we provide ionize the air which electronically charges air molecules, and eventually sweeps them up after they’ve been charged. By ionizing air molecules that are undesirable, like mold spores or bacteria, they become easy to sweep up and disposed of by the air purifier. These types of systems can eliminate airborne bacterial infections, lower airborne viral infections, and reduce static electricity in your home. If you’re looking for clean air, an air ionization machine is a great start.
UV Light Air Purifier
A UV light purifier works much differently than an air ionization device, but it functions with similar or better results. This ultraviolet light is placed deep within your ductwork so it can eliminate any bacteria, virus, or mold particles that travel through the ducts. Ultraviolet light is similar to the sun’s rays, which means they inhibit the particle’s ability to reproduce through radiation. And before you mention anything about whether or not this ultraviolet light can harm you, it’s hidden away in your ducts so you never have to be in contact with it!
Improve Your Air Quality Today
Did we mention that we provide services for air filtration systems as well? The truth is that you’re never going to get comprehensive treatment for your air quality unless you use some combination of air filtration, air purification, and humidity control. By leaving moisture levels too high, for instance, you’ll create the perfect environment for mold and mildew to grew. Without air filtration, your air could get dusty and cause you to sneeze and cough more than you’d like.
Air purification is one piece of a puzzle that requires an extensive solution. We encourage you to take the first step and invest in an air purifier at the moment, but please consider having a professional test your air and see if there are places that more improvements can be made.
