Air purifiers may be a good investment for your Palm Beach home. They’re designed to filter out allergens and pollutants from your house’s air to increase indoor air quality. If you have any family members with respiratory issues, air purification systems can reduce the symptoms of allergies and asthma.

What Are the Different Types of Air Purifiers?

There are different types of air purifiers available, including HEPA, ionic, and UV light versions. HEPA means “high-efficiency particulate air,” the most commonly used type available. They can filter out particles as small as 0.3 microns and eliminate up to 99.97% of all pollutants from the air inside of your home.

Ionic air purifiers filter out larger particles. They emit electrically charged negative ions to capture pollutants and allergens from the air, causing them to stick to collection plates.

Some air purifiers rely on ultraviolet (UV) light to clear the air in a house. They work by damaging the DNA in bacteria and viruses, making the air cleaner and healthier. This can help prevent the risk of airborne illnesses inside of your home.

Mechanical ventilation systems or air-to-air pumps work by bringing in outdoor air and circulating it into your home. They rely on fans or air ducts to freshen your indoor air and can be integrated into your existing HVAC system. If you have a whole-house air purifier, the outdoor air will be cleaned before circulating through your ductwork.

Are Air Purifiers Effective?

Air purifiers are often effective, but certain factors can determine how well they work. If you have adequate ventilation in your home and use an appropriately sized air purifier for the space you’re aiming to clean, they can work better. The type of filters your air purifier uses and its Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) also make a difference in terms of effectiveness.
