Air Cleaners & Purifiers—the Secret to Healthy Indoor Air
Did you know that your indoor air can actually be more polluted that the air outside? It’s true—unless you leave your windows open year-round for air circulation (something unheard of in Wisconsin), things such as dust, dander, and spores linger in every room. That’s where air cleaners and purifiers come in handy, and the professionals at ComfortAire Heating Cooling Plumbing are ready to install them in your house.
What Is an Air Cleaner?
Air cleaners and air purifiers are often mistaken for each other, but they are not the same thing. Built directly into your HVAC system, air cleaners capture dust, dirt, and other pollutants before they reach air return ducts, preventing them from circulating. Media and electronic cleaners catch 99 percent of airborne particles.
Additional benefits include:
- Soothing allergies
- Eliminating odors and smoke particles
- Preventing airborne diseases
- Indoor air quality enhancement
What Is an Air Purifier?
Air purifiers are similar to cleaners—they both eliminate pollutants from the air, and they both work in tandem with your heating and cooling systems. The big difference lies in how they do it. An air purifier cleans the air by using UV lamps that emit negative ions, which actually kill the airborne pathogens rather than simply trapping them.
The benefits of an air purifier are almost identical to those of an air cleaner but have the added bonus of working more quietly—a nice benefit to anyone’s home comfort.
