Providing Air Purifier Services Throughout Northern New Jersey
As you likely know, there is at least one air filter in your HVAC system, and that air filter is generally going to need to be changed every 1-3 months. What you may not realize, though, is that this air filter is not really designed to improve and maintain the indoor air quality throughout your home. Instead, it serves to prevent pollutants from causing trouble with your HVAC equipment itself.
If you are experiencing trouble with pollutants in your home, be they dust and dirt, or pollutants of a biological makeup, ours is the number to dial. We offer a number of different air filtration systems and air purifiers in Northern New Jersey. When you work with the IAQ specialists on the Mark Lindsay and Son Plumbing & Heating Inc team, you'll be able to breathe air of the quality that you demand in your home.
Air Filtration May Be Enough
Designated air filtration systems are capable of treating all of the air distributed throughout your home. These systems will have a higher MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value) than the standard air filter in your HVAC system. You have to be careful, though, as an overly efficient air filter can create too much airflow resistance for your system to handle, causing it to lose efficiency and suffer unnecessary wear and tear.
Air filtration is a great option for removing airborne pollutants from the air in your home. These may include dust, dirt, and other such debris. There are instances, though, in which the problem may be severe enough to necessitate the use of more sophisticated equipment. This is also the case when dealing with biological pollutants. If mechanical air filters aren’t cutting it, you may want to consider the use of air purifiers.
Which Is the Best Air Purifier?
Truth be told, it is impossible to designate any single air filter as being the "best." There is certainly an air filter that is the best for your given situation, though. You must be sure to use one that is appropriate for the task at hand. If you are looking for a sophisticated means by which to remove pollutants from the air in your home, for instance, you may want to use an electronic air purifier.
In the event of biological pollutants, though, such as viruses, mold, and bacteria, simply trapping the pollutants won’t cut it. They can continue to reproduce and thrive on filtering media or in a collection chamber. Using a device such as a UV air purifier, though, allows you to disrupt such pollutants at a DNA level, rendering them incapable of reproduction and effectively destroying them.
