Homeowners tend to focus on heating as the main home system during the winter. While keeping your home properly heated during the cold months is important, indoor air quality should be another significant concern. Poor indoor air quality can cause all kinds of issues for both your health and comfort.
Airborne contaminants like dust, pollen, dander, germs, and mold spores can cause issues from allergy attacks to the flu. The best way to deal with these issues is to install an air purifier in your home. Read on to find out more about which air purifiers can help you this winter.
Ionization purifiers release clouds of ions during operation. These ions bind to the contaminant particles that float through them. As more ions bind to the contaminants, they get heavier and heavier until they drop out of air circulation entirely. Most ionization purifiers have metal blades inside them, designed to collect the contaminants that fall out of the air. These blades can be removed and cleaned to rid the home of the contaminants the system collects. This can be more effective than an air filter, which is only able to trap particles up to a certain size due to concerns about blocking airflow.
UV Air Purifier
Rather than physically remove contaminants from the air supply, a UV air purifier gives off high levels of ultraviolet light. Many different kinds of viruses, bacteria, and mold spores cannot withstand exposure to high levels of UV light. These infectious contaminants are either killed or sterilized on contact with the purifier, and cease to be a threat to the occupants of the home. If you want to get sick less often during the winter, a UV air purifier might be a good idea.
