Pollutants are everywhere, and no matter how much you dust, vacuum and mop, there is no way to completely purify the air you breathe. Various air cleaners, however, can significantly cut down on dirty air in your Treasure Coast home. These include air filtration through your HVAC system, ultraviolet germicidal light systems, electrostatic air cleaners and gas phase filtration. With different technologies, these options will serve to remove many of the air pollutants inside your home. Not only do air cleaners help you breathe better, the also improve your health.
How Certain Types of Air Cleaners Help You Breathe Better:
- Air filtration through your HVAC system: Mechanical air filters installed in your can greatly improve your lung health, and HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters are the gold standard for indoor air filtration. For most homes without special air quality concerns, however, a standard efficient air filter can do a good job of cleaning your indoor air. Choose a filter with a Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) between 7 and 12 for the best mix of air-cleaning ability and airflow maintenance.
- Ultraviolet (UV) light filtration systems: These systems use UV radiation to clean the air and help you breathe easier. UV lamps are installed in your home’s ductwork to eliminate various unwanted microorganisms in the airstream, including mold spores, bacteria and viruses.
- Electrostatic air cleaners: These air cleaners work by attracting pollutants with electrically charged molecules. Unique polyurethane and polypropylene blends produce a charge whenever air passes through the multi-layer filter and remove mold, dust and mildew in the air.
