Two Kinds of Home Air Purifiers

Picture this…it probably won’t be very difficult.

You’re home on a cold winter’s evening, trying to relax before calling it a night. Your house is plenty warm, but you still don’t feel quite right. Itchy skin, relentless sinus issues – maybe you even feel like you have a cold coming on.

The next day you go to work, feel fine, come home, and the stuff you felt the night before starts all over again.

The probable cause? Poor indoor air quality! The kind that can cause allergies, asthma, and other upper respiratory ailments…or worsen the symptoms you already have.

Whole-House Air Filter

No one should have to live with that kind of misery…day after dreary day. That’s why we often recommend a whole-house air purifier to keep airborne pollutants out of your living space, and out of your lungs. The best kind are those with a HEPA filter, each one capable of trapping up to 99% of dust, dirt, bacteria, and numerous other pollutants inside your ductwork. They’re easy to maintain and help keep your home cleaner and healthier all year long.

UV Lamp Air Purifier

Another great way to clear the air is with a UV (ultra-violet) air purifying lamp system. Like an air filter, the lights are installed inside air ducts.

UV-C light, one of three types of ultraviolet light, is commonly used in air purification. When properly utilized, this invisible form of light can safely kill germs, mold, mildew, and, in some cases, even bacteria and viruses. UV–C rays destroy both the DNA of microorganisms and their life–sustaining proteins.

A UV air purifier can help eliminate unpleasant odors, too. What’s more, it kills mold and mildew on AC evaporator coils, thus eliminating two more known substances that cause or worsen respiratory conditions.
