Do You Need an Air Purifier?

December 5th, 2014

Your home really ought to be the sanctuary that you hope to return to after a long day at work or at play. If your home is not as comfortable as it ought to be, though, this simply cannot be the case. Keep in mind that, while certainly important, maintaining comfortable temperatures in your household is only part of a bigger comfort picture. Yes, you must be able to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. However, you must also be able to breathe clean, pure air in your home throughout the year. Because of the many indoor air quality woes that you may encounter, it might benefit you to invest in an air purifier. If you are at all dissatisfied with the quality of the air in your home, Imagine Energy is here to help you find the right system in order to improve upon the situation.

The simplest way in which to clean up the air throughout your home – as well as one of the most effective – is by installing an air filter in your HVAC system. There is one there already, but it is of low efficiency and is really designed to protect the condition of your heating and cooling equipment, not to boost indoor air quality. In the even that airborne pollutants require a more deft touch, an electronic air purifier is a good option to consider. Such systems pull air into an ionization chamber, wherein pollutants are given an electric charge. This forces them to adhere to collector plates or, depending on the model, to the surfaces in your home. In either event, they are easily cleaned up after being removed from circulation throughout the house.

Biological pollutants, including viruses, mold, and bacteria, require more specialized treatment. These pollutants must be destroyed and rendered incapable of reproduction. One effective means by which to accomplish this goal is with the use of UV air purifiers, including UV germicidal lights. To learn more about your air purification options in Portland, just call upon the specialists at Imagine Energy.
