Today, there’s a growing concern related to air pollution both outside and inside. According to information from the EPA, indoor air is often five times more polluted than outdoor air. The main reason for this is because indoor air isn’t circulated like the outside air, which allows airborne pollutants to thrive indoors. 

Investing in an air purifier Smyrna can help refresh stale air and reduce the potential of health problems related to indoor pollutants, which can aggravate asthma symptoms, cause neurological problems, and trigger respiratory infections. Also, now that children are back in school, more and more germs and particles are coming into your home each day.

You probably have plenty on your mind when it comes to home chores at the start of summer. Worrying about your indoor air quality may not be at the top of the list of your current concerns.

Which Air Purification System Do I Need?

Friday, February 27th, 2015

In a perfect world, you wouldn’t have to worry about the pollutants that can drag down the quality of the air in your home. This is not a perfect world, though, and if you are waiting for your indoor air quality to clean itself, we don’t suggest holding your breath. Instead, dial our number and work with one of our fine air purification technicians. Not only can we help you to choose the most appropriate air purifier for your needs, but the Milford, DE air purification professionals on our staff will ensure that you get the very best performance possible from your new equipment. Here are a few tips to consider when determining which air purification system best suits your needs, courtesy of the IAQ specialists here at Atlantic Refrigeration.

First of all, know that different air purification systems are appropriate for different air quality problems. For many homeowners, using the right mechanical air filter is all that they need in order to resolve problems with airborne pollutants. Mechanical air filters are installed into your HVAC air distribution system. As air passes through the filters, a media filter traps pollutants while letting the air pass through. In some homes, though, more specialized equipment is necessary.

Electronic air purifiers are another great way in which to remove airborne pollutants from the air in your home, but they are not passive in the manner of mechanical air filters. Instead, these systems draw air into an ionization chamber. In this chamber, the pollutants within the air are given an electric charge. They are then trapped on oppositely charged collector plates. These plates are easily removed and must be cleaned from time to time. When the air leaves the ionization chamber, it is of a much higher quality and purity than when it went in. Not all pollutants can simply be removed from the with the utilization of such techniques, though.

Biological pollutants are of much concern to homeowners, as these pollutants can have seriously negative implications for one’s health and even a home itself. Mold, viruses, and bacteria all fall into this category. These living organisms must be destroyed, not simply trapped on a filter where they can continue to reproduce. With the use of a UV air purifier, which uses small amounts of UV radiation in order to destroy such pollutants, you can protect your property and the health of everyone therein from the adverse effects of such pollutants.
