Types of Contaminants You May Encounter
There are various contaminants that can be circulating through your air in Butler County, and the best way to identify them is with an air quality test. After all, if you don’t know what’s causing your air issues, you won’t be able to address them with the proper solution. Some of those contaminants include:
- Dust, dirt, pollen, and pet dander.
- Chemical pollutants, such as those found in cleaning products and preservatives.
- Microorganisms that cause illnesses, such as bacteria, mold, and seasonal viruses.
Sometimes, your environment or the products you use in your house are to blame for your air quality woes. You can do your best to eliminate those sources, but that’s not always practical (we don’t want you to give away your cat or dog!) With the right type of air filters and purifiers, you can effectively eliminate all of these contaminants without needing to move away or donate your pets.
Capture Particles with Air Filtration
Your HVAC system has a filter designed to keep dust out of the sensitive components, but it’s not the same as an indoor air quality air filter. This type of filter is designed specifically to catch contaminants in a mesh screen. The screens come in different grades—the finer the grade, the smaller the particles it can capture. The filter is then disposed of or cleaned after it has become too dirty.
Air Purification Actively Cleans Your Air
Air purifiers use an electric charge to actively pull in contaminants. They’re able to effectively pull in a range of particles and pollutants, which then get stuck to a plate that will need to be washed off later. They’re commonly used in industrial settings where pollutants are generated on a daily basis, and you can use that same technology in your home for a similar result.
A UV air purifier is a special kind of air purifier that uses UV lights to kill microorganisms, such as mold spores, bacteria, and viruses.
It Only Counts When Installed by a Pro
The perfect balance of filtration and purification must exist to keep your air quality and your efficiency high. For example, air filters that are too high-grade are actually so effective that they reduce airflow, thus reducing your HVAC system’s efficiency. It takes an air quality professional to find the right balance, so don’t put your faith in anyone but an expert.
