Pollen, dust, and other air pollutants can negatively affect your health in your New Cumberland, Pennsylvania home. An air purifier can remove unwanted pollutants, potentially helping you and your family members to breathe better.
How Air Purifiers Work
Air purifiers have fans that draw air into the unit. A filter will capture the particles in the air and release clean air back into the room. Air purifiers use filters to remove pollen, some types of mold spores, dust, and other particles from the air.
Ultraviolet air purifiers use ultraviolet light to remove potentially harmful viruses, bacteria, and pathogens from your home. Some homeowners benefit from purifiers with activated carbon filters that, in addition to removing allergens from the air, can remove molecules that cause unpleasant odors.
Air Purifier Size
Whole-home air purifiers clean the air in your entire home by connecting to your central heating and cooling systems and are the most effective. Stand-alone air purifiers are designed to clean the air in a room of a specific size. Some may only work in a space as small as hundred square feet, while others are designed to work in larger rooms of up to 500 square feet or more. Getting the right sized unit for the space you want to improve the air quality in is essential to get the desired results.
The Importance of Filter Maintenance
When choosing the right model of air purifier for your home, you might opt for one that has a washable filter or one that has a filter that needs to be replaced every three, six, or 12 months. For the best results, it is recommended that you follow the manufacturer’s guidelines when determining when to have the filter changed. If you opt for a whole-home air purifier, it is also necessary to have the unit maintained by a professional to optimize performance.
