Every time you inhale, you are exposing yourself to millions upon millions of microscopic airborne contaminants. Normally, these contaminants are widely enough dispersed that your body can easily defend against them. However, prolonged exposure can result in a wide range of negative health effects. Common airborne contaminants include dust, pollen, dander, mold spores, and germs. These can cause all sorts of negative health effects, from allergy attacks to the flu. In order to defend against this, you should install an air cleaner in your home. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular air cleaner types on the market.
An air filter is just a closely woven fiber mesh, stretched across a frame and installed in the ducts of your home. As air flows through the filter, any contaminants that it carries will become trapped in the fibers. Then, the filter just needs to be removed and cleaned every couple of months to get rid of the contaminants.
Ionization purifiers cleanse the air by releasing clouds of magnetized particles during operation. As contaminants come into contact with these particles, they gain their own magnetic charge. The charged contaminants are then attracted to metal plates in the purifier, which can be removed and cleaned.
UV Air Purifier
A UV air purifier is a light bulb that generates high amounts of ultraviolet light. Most viruses, bacteria, and mold spores cannot stand contact with high levels of UV light. If they do come into contact with the light, they are either sterilized or destroyed. A UV air purifier improves your health by lessening the chances of you getting infected by bio-contaminants.
