Indoor air quality is one of those things that doesn’t get a whole lot of attention from the majority of homeowners, mainly because it’s hard to notice when it dips too low. Sure, if the home is filling up with smoke or carbon monoxide, you’re probably going to notice. You can start suffering ill effects from far more mild contaminants than that, though. Let’s take a look at why you may want to install an air purifier this summer.
There are millions of microscopic airborne contaminants floating around in the average home’s air. Some of these contaminants include dust, pollen, dander, viruses, bacteria, and mold spores. Breathing in these contaminants for a prolonged period of time can result in all kinds of negative health effects, from getting sick more often, to allergy attacks, to asthma. Summer can exacerbate these issues, as people tend to seal up their homes to preserve climate control. Eliminating fresh air flow into the home tends to trap contaminants, recycling them endlessly and making it easier for you to suffer their effects. The best way to handle these contaminants is to have an air purifier installed in your home.
Types of Air Purifiers
There are a wide variety of air purifier types available on the market today. Some popular varieties include the ionization purifier, which magnetizes contaminants to draw them out of the air. The UV air purifier doesn’t physically remove contaminants from the air. Instead, it gives off a moderate amount of ultraviolet light. Germs and mold spores often cannot withstand exposure to ultraviolet light, and are either sterilized or destroyed on contact. Talk to a professional about which air purifier might fit your needs best.
