Indoor air quality tends to drop during the summer, as people shut their doors and windows to aid in climate control. This traps a lot of airborne contaminants inside, causing a wide range of issues from allergy attacks to the flu. The best way to combat this issue is to install an air purifier in your home. Let’s take a look at some of the more popular air purifiers on the market.
An ionization purifier releases clouds of ions during operation. As contaminants come into contact with these ions, they become heavier and heavier until they eventually drop out of the air. They then just need to be swept up and removed from the home.
An air filter is a fairly simple mesh of fibers, which is stretched across the ducts in your home. Contaminants that flow into the filter become snared in the fibers. The filter is then changed every few months to prevent from becoming clogged. Air filters are among the simplest of the air purifier types, and are also among the most popular.
UV Air Purifiers
A UV air purifier is essentially a lightbulb that puts out high levels of ultraviolet light. This may not seem all that effective when it comes to purifying your air, but it actually works quite well for certain contaminants. Germs and mold spores mostly cannot withstand large amounts of UV light. Exposure to this light will either sterilize or destroy them. So a UV air purifier actually protects you from getting sick by killing most of the infectious agents in your air.
