Air Purification Systems

Summertime in the Pacific Northwest can get blisteringly hot! Your A/C unit needs all the help it can get. But did you know that there’s a way to boost your A/C’s function while also improving air quality at the same time? 

Whole-home air purification systems are designed to work in tandem with your home’s HVAC system in order to improve overall air quality. They are meant to remove harmful contaminants and other particles from the air. Air indoors can be over twice as polluted as outdoor air. With an air purification system, you can better the air quality in your home.

Types of Air Purifiers

There are two common types of air purifiers: ultraviolet light, and electric. 

UV Light Purifiers use the ultraviolet light they create to kill bacteria and mold and destroy other air particles. 

Electric Purifiers, on the other hand, work by changing particles that are taken into the system, allowing them to be collected by a magnetic plate elsewhere in the system. 

What Are the Benefits of an Air Purifier?

If you’re thinking of getting an air purification unit installed it’s important to be aware of the benefits. Poor air quality can worsen allergies and adversely affect health. Tobacco products, excess moisture, and everyday household products can worsen air quality. 

Air purification systems come with a host of benefits. These units can help:

  • Combat mold and mildew that may collect and grow in your home.
  • Improve AC operation. Since air is cleaner after passing through an air purification unit, it will be easier to heat or cool.
  • Prevent health problems by eliminating the bacteria and viruses that can cause respiratory illnesses.
