Home Air Purification Services
When it comes to maintaining your health and even uplifting your mood, the quality of air you breathe is crucial. Yet the air in your home is often filled with undetectable dust, pollen, and microbes that, if left unchecked, could cause sinus and respiratory issues.
Fortunately, Amtek Air Conditioning is committed to providing Port St. Lucie, Stuart, and Indian River County residents with home air purifiers to help them and their families breathe and live easy.
Types of Air Purifiers
Air purifiers contain either one or more filters that trap microbes, pollen, and dust. Air purifiers differ, however, in terms of the filters they use. The following are the different types of purifiers available today:
- High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters
These capture bacteria, viruses, and other pollutants down to 0.3 microns in size.
- Electrostatic precipitators
These use electrical energy to eliminate particles that pass through their filters by charging them. The main disadvantage of using such purifiers is that they release ozone gas, which can cause shortness of breath. Also, the eliminated particles that accumulate on the purifier’s electrostatic plates affect efficiency. Because of this, they need regular maintenance.
- UV air purifiers
These remove pollutants from the air through the use of UV rays.
What Situations Call for a Home Air Purifier?
Air purifiers are a great way to improve your home’s air quality, maintaining a circulation of healthy, less polluted air. Here are some of the most common situations that call for an air filtration system in your home:
- You have pets
Your pet’s fur can cause respiratory and other health problems, even if you are not allergic. Animals often collect dust and pollen, and though they may not shed, they still release dander and skin into the air.
- You have allergies or respiratory issues
Better air purification has been known to reduce respiratory symptoms such as coughing and wheezing. This is because home air purifiers filter the pollutants that stir up your allergies or breathing issues.
- You live close to a construction site or on a busy street
A purifier can filter pollutants such as fumes from passing vehicles and dust that gets stirred up from foot traffic on the road or ongoing construction.
Benefits of a Home Air Purifier
Your home’s air purification system can bring significant benefits to you and your family. These benefits include:
- Reduces the risks of developing life-threatening diseases
Purifiers can remove radon—an odorless, colorless gas formed during the combination of naturally-occurring radioactive elements like the uranium found in building materials. This reduces the risk of developing lung cancer. Additionally, the removal of asbestos particles common in old buildings prevents the development of mesothelioma. Purification further eliminates volatile organic compounds found in certain paints and aerosol sprays, reducing the chances of developing lymphoma and leukemia.
- Lowers infection of airborne diseases
When you or another family member is suffering from the flu, it is easy for everyone else in your home to get infected. This is because you are all inhaling the same air. Home air purifiers filter those pathogens, reducing the risk of infection.
- Reduces your home’s carbon dioxide levels
Limited air circulation can cause to you inhale higher levels of carbon dioxide. This could result in nausea, dizziness, headaches, shortness of breath, drowsiness, unconsciousness, and, in extreme cases, death. Purifiers reduce carbon dioxide levels and help improve your home’s air circulation.
- Helps improve mood levels and reduce stress
Inhaling purified air lowers your cortisol levels, reducing stress, improving productivity, and helping you relax. Furthermore, knowing your home’s air is free of pollutants gives you peace of mind. This makes you less irritable and helps you achieve and maintain a positive mood.
- Improves sleep
Fewer air pollutants mean cleaner air, which reduces allergy symptoms such as nose congestion, coughing, and sneezing. Cleaner air goes a long way in helping you achieve a better night’s sleep.
- Can increase your life expectancy
With your home free of pollutants, you are able to breathe in cleaner air, reduce the risk of long-term illnesses, and, ultimately, increase your life expectancy.
