How Does an Air Purifier Work?

Nearly one in six Americans suffer from allergies each year. Many of that group, plus others, also battle asthma. Indoors and out, they are plagued by watery eyes, shortness of breath, constant sneezing, lack of sleep, and other serious consequences.

Here at GBT Heating & Cooling, we wish we could fix things outdoors for you, but of course we can’t. But that doesn’t mean we can’t tackle the indoor causes and aggravating factors of your respiratory ailments.

The most common remedy is a whole-house HEPA air filtration system.

HEPA systems employ fine sieves that filter and trap particles once they enter the filter. Depending on the technology used, some models also can trap gases and odors. Unlike other air filtration products, HEPA filters are guaranteed to trap a minimum of 99.97% of particles larger than 0.3 microns. The human eye can’t see a particle smaller than 10 microns.

The more times air passes through a HEPA air purifier, the cleaner it gets.

Here’s what else an air purification system can do for you:

  1. Helps trap dust before it has the chance to settle, reducing build-up and leaving you with less to clean.

  1. Stops sickness and germs from spreading

  1. Helps neutralize smoke. Smoke stinks. Whether it’s a family member who smokes or your love for a roaring fireplace making your home smell dingy, an air purifier can help trap smoke before it ends up in your upholstery.

  1. Removes unpleasant odors. You love to cook, but your weekly fish fry makes the house smell like, well, fish. But not for long when you outfit your home with a new HEPA air purification system.
