Air may be invisible, but it’s filled with all kinds of unwanted material. Dust, dander, pollen, mold spores, and bacteria are just a few things that may show up in your indoor air. To reduce the amount of contaminants and allergens in the air you breathe every day, consider installing a whole-house purification system in your home.
A whole-house purification system uses the same basic technology as a room air purifier, but cleans the indoor air of the whole house rather than on a room-by-room basis.
Air purifiers use filters to capture contaminants and allergens in your indoor air. Because filters vary between models, do some research to select a unit that uses the filters you prefer. They are rated based on how efficient they are at trapping tiny particles. HEPA filters are considered the most efficient filters, since they use the most advanced filtering technology available today. These filters use millions of thin threads that seize tiny particles in the air as it passes through. Other filters may include an electrostatic charge, which actively attracts particles, leaving behind purified air.
Whole-house purification systems involve incorporating these filters into your duct system. Some systems have a filter in the main air duct of your HVAC system, which purifies the air before it’s pulled into the air conditioner or heating system to be conditioned. Others filter out the conditioned air that comes out of your HVAC system. The best system for you probably will depend on the HVAC system that you already have in your home.
