Indoor Air Quality
Air Purifier Systems and Service in Chicago, IL
The list of pollutants and contaminants that can float through the air of the average home is often alarming. It doesn’t matter how clean of a house you keep, these airborne irritants will find ways to enter the air ducts then spread around the house, triggering allergy and asthma attacks and even creating health worries for people who don’t otherwise suffer from respiratory trouble. Standard mechanical air filters can only do so much against these contaminants, especially gases, chemicals, and microorganisms. It often requires the power of an electronic air purifier to solve such problems.

How Do Whole–House Air Purifiers Work?
Although there are a number of different methods that air purifiers use to cleanse indoor air, these are the two most common air purifiers installed in residential buildings:
- Electronic air cleaners: This purifier uses ionization to alter the charge of the larger particles moving through the air an HVAC system. The ionization causes the particles to lose or gain an electron, which makes them either positively or negatively charged. A pair of collecting plates on the air cleaner then attracts these charged pollutants and traps them. The plates are easily removed in order to be cleaned.
- UV air purifiers: These air quality devices are designed for the elimination of organic pollutants, specifically mold, bacteria, and viruses. The purifier uses ultraviolet lamps to disrupt the cellular structures of the unwanted organic growths, which destroys them or render them inert. Professionals can install UV lights so they present no danger to anyone in a household.
