An air purifier works to improve indoor air quality by filtering and removing micro particles such as dust, dander, and pollen from the air. Air purifiers draw the interior air through a filter that traps these minute particles and returns higher quality air to the home. Air purifiers are available in stand-alone room models and whole home versions that work with your HVAC system. Each purification system is given a maximum efficiency reporting value (MERV). Look for a system that carries an MERV of 10 or higher to get the most efficient system.
Benefits Of Installing A Whole Home Air Purifier
By installing a whole home air purifier in your HVAC system, you reap the benefits of filtered air throughout your entire home. Removing allergens from the air can reduce symptoms in allergy and asthma sufferers leading to fewer doctor visits and improved quality of life. Some air purifiers use an additional electrical charge to kill or inactivate pathogens like bacteria and common household fungi. When the air purifier is part of the HVAC system, it can complete a cycle up to eight times per hour to vastly improve your home’s indoor air quality.
