A whole house air purifier is a device that is installed in line with your residential HVAC system that will trap or destroy dust, pollen, and other harmful contaminants to clear the air and improve indoor air quality.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the air indoors where we spend as much as 90% of our time can be more 5X more polluted that outdoor air and more polluted than city smog and can contain an invisible mix of dust mites, pollen, dander, mold, micro-plastics, volatile organic components (VOC’s) and smoke that can annoy your lungs and be hazardous to your health.

Media Air Filter

Your first line of defense for clean air in your home is the basic air filter built into your air conditioning and heating system. The air inside your home circulates through your homes return ducts (sometimes called cold air returns) into your heating and cooling system and then back into the rooms of your home.  This air is full of tiny particles such as pollen, pet dander, mold, tobacco smoke, exhaust, VOCs, viruses and bacteria.

The largest of these particles appear as dust in your home; whereas the smaller particles become airborne and circulate throughout your home.

Air filters work by trapping particles from the air in your home onto the air filter installed in your air conditioning and heating system.

Media filters, the most common type of air filter, create a physical barrier inside your AC system that traps air purifier; air cleaner; air filter; home air purifier; home air filter; whole house air purifier; carrier air purifier; patriot pco air purifier; reme halo air purifier; hepa filter; air conditioner air purifier; media filter; electronic air filter,minute particles such as dust and dander that are present in the air inside your home.

Electronic Air Cleaners (EAC), also called ionic and electrostatic air cleaners due to the electrical charge employed, also capture and filter contaminants such as dust and dander but, in addition, use an electronically charged filter to attract and trap smaller particles such as bacteria and mold.

Electronic filters work especially well on smoke particles too small to be trapped in media filters. One independent test found such filters worked about 30 times better than fiberglass filters. Unlike media filters, electronic filters never need replacing, but the aluminum collector plates must be cleaned in soapy water every few months.

UV-C Light Air Purifiers clean the air in your home when the air passes through a chamber and is exposed to UV Light.

 What is UV Light?

UV light, like X-Rays and radio waves, is an invisible form of electromagnetic radiation.  You hear about UV light primarily in the summer because it causes sunburn by destroying cells.  It is this cell-destroying capability that makes it efficient in destroying impurities in the air.

Most air purifiers use UV-C light which is one of the four types of ultraviolet light; the other three are UV-A, UV-B and UV-V.

How does UV Light Purify Air?

Since UV-C light destroys the nucleic acids of cells and disrupts their DNA which either kills or leaves them incapacitated, contaminated air that passes through UV-C light will therefore be purified from most harmful contaminants.

In other words, the ultraviolet light zaps airborne bacteria and viruses into oblivion, which is why hospitals use UV air filters in tuberculosis wards.
