Whole Home Air Purifiers: They Help You Breathe Easier
It’s that time of year. Kids are bringing home nasty germs and inevitably, everyone in the house will take their turn at being sick. Obviously washing your hands and cleaning surfaces with disinfectant will help. But what if you could have a whole home solution? One that worked for you all year around? One that would strip the germs right out of the air so that you don’t have to worry? Well we have the solution for you. Our whole home air purifier.
You may wonder what the difference is between an air filter and an air purifier or cleaner. Air filters are made of a dense material to trap pollutants and remove them from your home. Air filters are given a MERV rating to tell how well they do this job – the higher the rating, the better they are at removing those particles from the air. Most home filters have a MERV rating of between 10 and 15. The ones at hospitals have a MERV rating of 20 or higher. Home air conditioning systems are not meant to have such a strong filter put on them. Creating such a dense barrier makes the unit have to work too hard and shortens the life of the system.
Air purifiers work differently. Air purifiers are installed in your ductwork and all the air in your home has to circulate through it. The air purifier uses electrostatic energy to charge the particles in the air and then attract them to an oppositely charged collector plate. This plate needs to be cleaned regularly in order to remain effective.
Just imagine the benefits of having clean air in your home all the time. An air purifier would remove allergens, reducing the miserable irritations of allergy season. Those in your home with asthma could breathe easier and have fewer attacks. On top of that, the germs the kids bring home will be eliminated.
So breathe easier. Get a whole home air purifier and enjoy the benefits of clean air. For more information or to have a John’s Comfort Expert come out, call us!
