Addressing Common Airborne Impurities with an Air Purification System

Air Purification SystemWhen it comes to dealing with indoor airborne impurities, the easiest way to ensure that your home’s air is as clean as possible is with a home air purification system. Taking care of the air quality of your home is especially important, because when people say they want to step outside to “take a breath of fresh air,” they may be more correct than they know. Because the air inside a house has nowhere to go, over time, unwanted particles have a chance to accumulate, exacerbating the effects of allergens and other irritants.

Common home air contaminants can include several different types of impurities, including biological substances such as pollen, dust mite debris, bacteria, viruses, mold, and animal dander. Chemical impurities like volatile organic compounds (a byproduct of paint products, cleaners, and disinfectants) are also common, and can lead to irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, as well as cause nausea, headaches, and more serious asthma symptoms.

In order to ensure that none of these problems affect your family ever again, finding and installing the right air purification system is crucial. While a HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filter is an incredibly efficient answer to particles like dust, pollen, allergens, and pet dander, this type of pure filter-based system may fail to completely address microscopic contaminants like mold, bacteria, and viruses. In contrast, a charged particle air purification system uses ions to cause airborne contaminants large and small to adhere to a collector plate or fiber filter, but becomes less effective over time, requires frequent maintenance, and can generate unwanted byproducts that may make it into your home’s air. Perhaps the most effective type of air purification system is the antibacterial and germicidal system, variations of which are used in hospitals and medical facilities around the world. Using ultraviolet lamps to sterilize the air in a manner that destroys even the tiniest microscopic organisms, these systems can provide you with air that is clean and healthy without any unwanted side effects or heavy maintenance.
