Mesa, AZ gets super-hot in the summertime, and most of us rightfully focus on our air conditioners to keep our homes comfortable. But frankly speaking, indoor air quality can be as much of a problem: anything from low humidity to the presence of germs and bacteria can lower the quality of your air and subsequently the quality of your life. You can fight it by installing an air filtration system in your home, which can address specific issues or a variety of them to help make the air fresher and healthier. But which one is right for you? You can answer that question with help from a professional technician, but here are 3 different types of air filtration systems to give you an idea of your options.
The desert air can get pretty dry, and when relative humidity levels drop below 30%, it’s apt to make you feel very uncomfortable. Low humidity can result in dry itchy skin, a scratchy throat (and increased vulnerability to illness), and static electricity building up in your home. A humidifier sends vaporized water into your air to reduce that dry feeling and restore your home to a more comfortable setting.
2) UV Lighting
UV stands for ultraviolet, a wavelength of light that we can’t see and which is harmless to people and pets, but which destroys germs and other kinds of biological contaminants. A UV lighting system places a UV light bulb in your ducts, and as air circulates through it, it kills them. As a result, your household will be less prone to sickness and disease.
3) Air Cleaners
An air cleaner, or air purifier, uses an electrical field to charge passing contaminants, causing them to stick to a collection plate and be removed from the air circulation. It’s a good all-purpose cleaner, especially in light of our desert dust.
