How to Choose an Air Purifier: Buying Guide
The quality of the air inside your home is as important as the temperature. While your HVAC system is responsible for heating and indoor cooling air to stay comfortable when you are inside, it does not regulate the air quality, which could be a problem. If you want to breathe easier, it is a good idea to look into which types of air purifiers are available for your home. The ActivePure technology offered by A-Z Air Duct is a superior system designed to keep your air clean and improve your quality of life
Understanding What You Are Buying
Before you start shopping around for an air purifier, you need to understand exactly what you are looking for. An air purifier is different from a filter. A filter keeps contaminants out of your HVAC unit, while an air purifier pulls pollutants out of the air to improve the indoor air quality of your home.
The purpose of using air scrubbers in the home is to pull contaminants out of the air inside the house and make it easier for you and your family to breathe. You may not even know that you have poor indoor air quality until you invest in an air purifier and notice a difference in your breathing. Many people think that relying on standard air filters and basic air purifiers is enough to clean up the air inside their homes, but this is not always true. ActivePure Technology is a superior type of air purifier that creates oxidizing molecules to sanitize the air.
Room Size Makes a Difference
Every room in your home is affected by the quality of the air inside the house. Traditional air filters protect the HVAC unit, but they do little to remove contaminants from the air inside the home. Other air purifiers may only work in small areas, so if you want your entire house to be filled with crisp, clean air, you’ll need to install an air purification unit in every room.
However, you can invest in ActivePure technology to purify all the air in your home. Just make sure the size of your HVAC unit is compatible with the size of your home, and the purification technology will do the rest of the work.
What’s In the Air and What Do You Want To Remove?
At any given time, you have thousands of microscopic particles floating in the air inside your home. You may not have paid attention to your indoor air quality in the past, but if you are struggling with allergies or tend to fall ill more often than you should, it may be time to test the air in your house. If your air quality is poor, you may find bacteria, viruses, organic compounds, and odors floating throughout your house. Poor air quality can also be caused by having the following particles floating inside your home:
- Pet dander
- Dust mites
Any of these particles could trigger respiratory issues. While they could manifest in allergy or cold symptoms, these respiratory symptoms could also just make you feel fatigued and keep you from getting adequate rest so you can recharge. Improving the air quality of your home by removing these pollutants is an easy way to boost your quality of life.
ActivePure Technology works by oxidizing the molecules of your indoor air to strip away these unwanted particles. The system has been proven to remove 99.99% of pollutants to leave you with crisp air inside that can improve your quality of life.
What Not To Buy – Buyer Beware
Air purifiers can be helpful, but they are not a treatment for respiratory issues. They can eliminate many of your triggers, but installing one doesn’t mean that you can stop other types of treatment. Most air purifiers only work on certain types of particles, so they are only effective if they get rid of the specific particle that is triggering your health problems. For example, few air filters get rid of dust mites because they tend to live in carpet or bedding. If pollen and pet dander are what trigger your allergies, an air purification system can be helpful for reducing your symptoms.
If you’re interested in improving the quality of air inside your home, it is best to use a whole-house system such as ActivePure Technology. Rather than simply filtering the air in a single room, the purification system will work throughout your home to reduce the number of allergens in the air. If you only invest in a portable air purifier, you will only have clean air in a single room.
Air Purifiers Vs. ActivePure Technology System
Standard air purifiers and ActivePure technology have the same essential purpose, but the latter option is much more effective. Air purifiers are only capable of cleaning the air inside your home, while ActivePure technology also targets surfaces to eliminate pollutants. This revolutionary technology uses UV rays to clean surfaces and clean air molecules before releasing them back into your home to identify and get rid of any contaminants in the air.
Additionally, as an active system, ActivePure actively purifies the air in your entire home, while passive systems only capture what is sucked into the system or filter in that room. Passive systems may be less expensive upfront, but the costs add up in the long term with the energy consumption required to suck in and blow out air and the constant replacement of filters. Passive air filtration systems can also be much noisier than an ActivePure system.
Making the Choice – Fitting Your Needs
ActivePure Technology is a great investment for your home. Not only does it clean your air, but it also removes pollutants from the surfaces inside your home, so you can breathe easier. It is more effective than traditional air purifiers at getting rid of common contaminants, and studies show that this technology effectively removes up to 99.98% of pollution inside your house. Instead of viewing this technology as an unnecessary expense, think of it as an investment in your home to improve your health and your family. If this could benefit you, it’s time to make the right choice for your family’s needs.
