Air Purification Systems
There are a lot of different air filtration and purification systems on the market today, each of which is suited to removing a different range of airborne contaminants. If you’re unsure about which one you should install in your home, we recommend giving us a call and we’ll walk you through it! You can also take a look at this list below for a quick idea:
- Air Filters: An air filter is just a simple fiber mesh that is installed in the ductwork and strains contaminants out of the air as it flows through the medium. These are quite popular for their ability to remove contaminants from the air without needing power. You just need to make sure you have the right kind installed, as one that is too closely woven could make it difficult for your heater and air conditioner to circulate air through the home.
- Ionization Purifiers: These systems release clouds of ions during operation, which attach to contaminants and make them too heavy to remain airborne. The majority of contaminants then collect on metal plates, which can be removed and cleaned. Ionization purifiers are a popular choice, as they do not impede airflow through the ducts. However, they do need access to a power source.
- UV Air Purifiers: A UV air purifier doesn’t actually physically remove contaminants from the air. What it does is subject all the air passing through the ducts to high levels of ultraviolet light. Many kinds of viruses, bacteria, and mold spores are unable to withstand that kind of exposure, and will either be sterilized or killed. A UV air purifier protects you from getting sick by killing infectious organisms in your air supply. They don’t do anything about dust or dander, though.
- Air Scrubber Plus: An air scrubber is a portable filtration system that removes particles, gasses, and chemicals from the air in your home by passing your air through a series of heavy-duty filters. An air scrubber cleans the air in your home, removes bad odors, eliminates dust in your home, and keeps your air conditioning unit clean. When you install this unit in your home, you’ll enjoy a cleaner space, reduced allergy symptoms, and alleviated cold and flu symptoms.
- Global Plasma Solutions: Global Plasma Solutions (GPS) is a brand that provides air purification systems using cold plasma air purification technology to boost your indoor air quality. GPS systems reduce the number of airborne particles and eliminates viruses, bacteria, and mold in your home. GPS technology is advanced, but to break it down in simple terms, these systems emit ions that attach to airborne contaminants in your home and break them down. These systems are energy-efficient, effective, and low maintenance.
