How an Air Purifier Can Help You

You want to turn on the heater but you always end up thinking twice. While your heater works well and does warm the home effectively, it also sends your allergies into overdrive. You aren’t sure if you are willing to put up with this yet again. Maybe you can just throw on another sweater…

This isn’t a debate you should have to have. Adding an air purifier in Tulsa to your home can be a great solution that gives you the comfort you need without the indoor air quality issues you’ve been battling with. We want you to enjoy a warm home without needing to suffer.

What Is an Air Purifier?

If you haven’t heard of air purifiers before, we’d love to give you some extra information. This is going to come in handy when you are trying to find ways to improve your indoor air quality.

Let us be clear: we are discussing whole-home air purifiers, not portable ones. This is an important distinction. Why? Because a whole-home air purifier is installed into your ducts rather than plugged into one room. This allows the system to clean all the air that is entering your home, rather than only the air in one room at a time.

Whole-home air purification systems can come in two key forms: electric or UV germicidal light. Electrical air purifiers charge airborne particles and draw them to a magnetized plate where they are held until the plate is cleaned. In contrast, a UV germicidal light is going to break down contaminants or halt their ability to reproduce which will make them as harmless as dust motes. This makes them great for everything from dust to viruses and bacteria.

The Perks of Installing an Air Purifier

Why install an air purifier? We touched on some great tidbits about these systems above but let us break down three of the best perks they offer.

  1. They clean the air for the whole home. While portable air purifiers can only clean the air that comes into the room they are in, whole-home purifiers are able to clean all of the air that is entering your home. This means no matter what part of your home you are in you can expect clean and clear air.
  2. Reduces respiratory issues and allergies. Air purifiers can tackle airborne particles that can agitate allergies or respiratory issues otherwise. This can include things like dust, pollen, fur, viruses, bacteria, and even mold spores.
  3. It helps your HVAC system’s operation. Much like an air filter, your air purifier is going to help your HVAC system’s operation. By cleaning the air that is cycling through your home, it can remove contaminants that might clog your system filter or clog up its internal components. That’s right, a purifier can help you enjoy better comfort in more than one way.
