The team at Wenbrooke Services understands the importance of air quality to your health, the performance of your HVAC systems, even the longevity of your electronic devices. That’s why we offer various services and products to help you control the air quality of your home and keep VOCs, allergens, and other pollutants away from your family.
What Is an Air Purifier?
An air purifier or air purification system refers to a system that aims to neutralize or eliminate unwanted contaminants in your air, such as bacteria, mold, viruses, volatile organic compounds, and other allergens and pollutants. This is in contrast with an air filtration system or air filter on your existing HVAC, which works to capture larger pollutants as they pass through a physical barrier.
Only an air purifier can affect the much, much smaller organisms and particles of viruses and certain VOCs, making them of unique value in controlling indoor air quality. There are many different air purifiers on the market, using different technologies with different strengths, weaknesses, and caveats to consider.
The team at Wenbrooke Services knows the ins and outs of a number of different types of air purifiers, and we can help you find the best fit for your home, system, and budget.
Air Purifier Installation in Maryland
When you install an air purifier in your home, you’re benefiting from the same sorts of technology used in hospitals and other sensitive locations to keep sensitive people and equipment safe from airborne contaminants. Air purifiers act to either break down, kill, or render chemically inert a number of different things:
- Mold and mildew
- Cigarette smoke
- Various odor-causing compounds
- Pollen and other allergens
- Pet dander
- Volatile organic compounds (residue from home products that can affect your health)
- And more
Air purifiers are usually installed into your HVAC system, inserted somewhere in your ducts where they can interact with the air as it passes through. Some units can be installed directly in different rooms, but some of the more potent purifying technologies should be somewhat isolated for safety.
The team at Wenbrooke understands how to assess your indoor quality to identify which sorts of threats you’re dealing with on a regular basis, and offer solutions tailored to your specific needs. Having the right air purifier installed in your home can be transformative for the health of people suffering from these contaminants, but that’s just one of the benefits you might see from effective use of an air purifier.
The Benefits of an Air Purification System
Air purifiers aim to do what simple filtration cannot. By eliminating those pollutants we mentioned before, you can see a huge number of benefits, including but not limited to:
- Reduced allergies
- Improved sleep quality
- Reduced viruses and bacteria in the air
- Elimination of odors
- Improved mood and general health
- Reduced risk from VOCs
- Reduced wear and tear on electronics and mechanical devices
While an air purifier cannot completely destroy the substances that cause these problems, in many cases they are killed or rendered inert; that’s to say, the virus might still be moving around, but no longer capable of infecting you, or a dangerous chemical may no longer be in a state where it can react with your tissues and cause health problems.
