Indoor air quality is a concern all year-round. Millions of microscopic airborne contaminants can be found in the average home’s air. Dust, pollen, dander, mold spores, germs, and all sorts of other horrible things are all likely floating around your home at this very moment. Long term exposure to high enough levels of these contaminants can create a wide range of negative health effects, from allergy attacks to asthma. This becomes more likely during the winter, when people tend to seal off their homes from fresh air flow in order to maintain better climate control.
The best way to improve your indoor air quality, and your health, is to install an air purifier in your home. There are far too many different kinds of air purifiers to list them all here, but we can go over a couple of the more common types for you.
Also called electronic air purifiers, ionization purifiers release clouds of magnetically charged particles during operation. As contaminants come into contact with these particles, they gain their own magnetic charge. The charged contaminants are then attracted to metal plates in the purifier, which can then be removed and cleaned.
UV Air Purifiers
A UV air purifier is essentially a large lightbulb that puts out higher than usual amounts of ultraviolet light. Many kinds of viruses, bacteria, and mold spores found in the home are highly phobic of UV light. Too much exposure to it will either sterilize or completely kill these infectious agents. A UV air purifier protects you from getting sick by killing off contaminants that can infect you.
