Air Purifier

Recent events have put air purifiers in the spotlight to help people protect themselves against airborne pathogens and viruses and get cleaner, healthier air at home. But, what is an air purifier, and how does it work?

An air purifier is a device that removes contaminants from the air. Your HVAC system already filters out some particles, but it can’t filter out fine dust or smaller particles. Adding an air purifier gives you an extra layer of filtration to trap the particles your HVAC filter misses.

Air purifiers pull in particles through a fan and pass them through filters to remove unwanted debris. There are several different types of indoor air purifiers available.

  • HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filters: use a pleated design to trap microscopic particles that pass through other filter types.
  • Activated carbon filters: absorb odors, gases, and chemicals.
  • UV (ultraviolet) light: helps destroy living organisms such as viruses and bacteria.
  • Ionizers emit charged ions: that attach to airborne particles and make them heavy enough to fall out of the air.

These filters work together to create a healthier indoor environment for you and your family.
