Why Use an Air Purifier

Monday, October 20th, 2014

It is perfectly understandable that many homeowners think of the temperature in their home when considering their overall comfort. In truth, though, temperature is only a part of the equation. The other half is the quality of the air within the living space. Pollution is not only something to worry about outdoors. In fact, it is very possible for the air quality in a home to be worse off than that outside. With the right air purifier in Farmington, NM, though, you can clean up the air that you breathe within the walls of your own home. Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. is here to ensure that you have everything that you need to do so. Consider the following information, and give us a call with any questions that you may have.

Your HVAC system, as you likely know, has an air filter built in. However, the purpose of this air filter is not to protect the quality of the air in your home. Instead, it prevents the buildup of pollutants within the system itself, protecting its operation and the integrity of its components. More efficient air filters can help to pick up the slack, but even this is not always enough. If you find that there are a lot of airborne pollutants floating around throughout your home, or if you are concerned about the possibility of biological pollutants, you may need to invest in an air purifier in Farmington, NM.

Electronic air purifiers, such as electronic precipitators, pull air through an ionization chamber. Therein, the pollutants within the air are given an electric charge. They then adhere to an oppositely charged collector plate. This plate is easily removed and can be cleaned of pollutants. For biological pollutants such as viruses, mold, and bacteria, though, you cannot hope to simply filter them out of the air: you must prevent them from reproducing and taking hold. To do so, you need a different type of air purifier, one which focuses on pollutant destruction. A UV air purifier is just the tool for the job.

If you have any concerns at all regarding the condition of your indoor air quality, just let the technicians at Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. know. We have the information you need to determine what type of IAQ equipment will best resolve your problems. When we install and service your air purifiers in Farmington, NM, you can count on an outstanding performance.
