Sometimes, keeping things clean takes a little extra expertise. There are clothing items that you have to take to a professional dry cleaner to clean. There are stains that get into a carpet that require a carpet cleaner. And, of course, when it comes to cleaning your air, there is nothing better than a good air purification system in Flatwoods, KY.
Keeping the air clean in your home can be tricky. For one thing, it isn’t always obvious that you need to clean your home’s air supply–it certainly isn’t as obvious as a stain! What’s more, you may not be familiar with exactly how an air purifier is going to help “clear the air.” We are here to provide the answers you need so you can enjoy clean air in your home this summer and beyond.
Why Indoor Air Quality Matters
Your indoor air quality can impact your health and your comfort. While good, clean air provides optimal comfort and presents no hindrance to your health, poor indoor air quality does the opposite. If you have air flowing through your house that is saturated with dust and other debris, it will lead to issues such as:
- Worsening airflow
- Struggling HVAC function
- Increased allergy symptoms
- Poor respiratory health
- Increased sickness
- Increased issues with mold
What Impacts Your Indoor Air Quality
There is more than one thing that can hinder your air quality. Humidity (or a lack of it) can help or hinder your indoor air quality but that is a subject for another blog post. Let’s look at some of the particulates that may be in the air circulating in your home right now:
- Mold spores
How an Air Purification System Helps
The full name of these systems is whole-house air purification systems. This is because they clean up the air throughout your entire home. Installed within your ducts, an air purifier uses electricity or UV light to clean the air that is pumped into your home from your HVAC system.
Electrical air purifiers create an electrical charge that, well, charges airborne contaminants and allows them to be drawn to a metal plate where they are held until the plate is wiped down.
UV light purifiers use ultraviolet light to clean the air. The UV light will either fully break down a particle, destroying it, or it will alter its genetic code to make it impossible for it to reproduce (especially helpful in fighting viruses and bacteria).
Whichever air purifier is chosen for your home, it will effectively combat the contaminants flowing through your home’s airflow, leaving you with cleaner, healthier air.
