Air Cleaners: Benefits for Allergy Sufferers
An air cleaner removes contaminants from the air, being particularly beneficial for those who suffer from allergies and asthma. Pollutants that cause allergy not only are found in the air, but they also settle in bedding, rugs, and drapes. An air cleaner works well in combination with regular cleaning and dusting.
Air cleaners purify the air via different methods. Some air cleaners utilize UV light technology to deodorize indoor air. These are designed to be particularly effective against biological pollutants like mold. The majority of air cleaners use mechanical air filters that remove particles by capturing them on a filter material.
According to the EPA, the air inside the home can be five times more polluted than outside air. This is mainly due to the fact that pollutants and contaminants settle and become concentrated inside of a closed space. While the air outside can be just as polluted, air currents ensure that it doesn’t settle into one place.
Whole-home air cleaning systems are increasing in popularity. These work in conjunction with your HVAC system to purify indoor air. Here are some of the benefits associated with HVAC air filtering systems.
- Convenience. Since these systems work with your HVAC, there is a peace of mind knowing that everyone in your home is enjoying air that is free of allergens. Standalone air purifiers have their benefit, but it will only be able to clean air within a specific area.
- HVAC systems retrofitted with an air purifier is much more effective.
- HEPA filters. HEPA filters stand for high-efficiency particulate air, and it works by forcing hair through a fine, multilayered net to trap dangerous allergy triggers like pet dander, dust mites, and pollen.
- Prolong the life of your current HVAC system.
