In Tampa, Florida, you rely on your air conditioner to cool, dehumidify, and keep the air clear of impurities. For the health and safety of your family, adding an air purifier to your HVAC system might be the extra assurance you need. Here are some benefits:
Cleans Air of Irritants
Modern homes are well-insulated and tight. That helps air conditioners run efficiently, but it can also trap air pollutants inside. Pets shed fur and dander, and we bring in dust and dirt from outside on our shoes or clothing. As we walk and move, those particles get released into the air, and sometimes breathing them can lead to allergies and respiratory problems. You can install an air purifier inside your HVAC system that bonds particulates together which enables your air filter to do a better job of trapping them.
Traps and Transforms Harmful Chemicals and Germs
An air purifier uses a carbon filter to trap germs and potentially harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) present in your home. VOCs can come from electronics, smoking, or chemical cleaning products. The purifier is exposed to an ultraviolet light that transforms the VOCs back into harmless water vapor and carbon dioxide which are circulated back into the system.
In addition to safety and better breathing, an HVAC-installed air purifier can help reduce the unpleasant odors in your home. Unlike portable air purifiers which can only clean the air in their immediate vicinity, one that’s part of your HVAC system traps and purifies odors from all parts of the house. The smells of cooked fish from the kitchen, the hamper full of dirty clothes in the laundry room, or the cat’s litter box are all trapped in the filter and treated before recirculating as clean air in the house.
