Air Purifiers and Improving Indoor Air Quality

Air purifiers are a powerful weapon in the fight to improve the indoor air quality of your home or business.

A number of factors contribute to poor indoor air quality. Some are natural and some man-made. Dust, pollen, mold, and other airborne irritants can aggravate allergies and other sensitivities to reduce your quality of life. Soot, ash, and other man-made pollutants also play a factor.

Most modern homes and businesses utilize forced air heating and cooling systems which heat or cool air and then distribute it around the building through a system of ducts and vents. Theses systems typically include a filter, but these filters only capture the largest particles and do little to combat the dust, pollen, mold and other pollutants that are already inside the indoor spaces. As a matter of fact, as the air is circulated it stirs-up these irritants and mixes them back into the air you are breathing.

Air purifiers are the best tool for improving the quality of indoor air. They can be installed inside a central heating and cooling system. Or, stand alone air purification units can be installed inside some or all of the primary indoor spaces and treat the air of each room individually.

There are three primary approaches to treating indoor air and improving the overall air quality indoors. They are:

Ultraviolet light exposure is used in many systems to kill live airborne germs and bacteria. The air passes through a space containing the ultraviolet light and is exposed for a long enough period to kill most living organisms. Ultraviolet light is nearly always used in combination with a secondary filtration system.

Ionic air filtration systems pass the air over an ionization unit which gives an electrical charge to the particles. This, in turn, causes the charged particle to stick to a collection plate in the filtration unit. Charged particles not captured in the collection plates are more likely to stick to the surfaces in a room rather than float in the air. Regular dusting can then remove them from the environment. One byproduct of the ionization process is ozone. In sufficient quantities, ozone is a lung irritant. So, it is important that the ozone output of the unit does not overpower the room.

HEPA filters are a layered fabric filtering system capable of capturing very small particles. In a HEPA air filter system the air is forced through the filter using fans and the dust, pollen, mold, and other pollutants air captured in the filter. The filters can be expensive and the fans can be noisy, but this is one of the most effective methods for improving indoor air quality.

The best solutions often combine two, or all three of these air purification technologies. So, get an air purifier for your home or business and breathe easier.

Is It Safe to Use an Air Purifier and the "ionizer" Setting While Pregnant?
I cant see how it would hurt, I always head my HEPA turned on while pregnant, as far as I know nothing gets released that would harm you or the baby, as for the ache, it could really be almost anything, I had so many different pains, i cant name them all, lol, best luck1. Review of the Alen Breathesmart air purifier?Yes, I use the Alen Breathesmart myself. It is on the expensive end but one of the best air purifiers around. I had a neighbor who smoked and was carrying my second child when I started researching air purifiers. I needed one that was quiet, able to clean the air effectively and most importantly any smoke traces or allergens. I debated between more budget air purifiers like the Honeywell HHT 011 and more expensive ones like the Alen Breathesmart but eventually stuck with the Alen Breathesmart. Main things I liked about it: great coverage area (more than a thousand square feet), high CADR ratings for dust / smoke / pollen of more than 250, smart system, lifetime warranty. You do not get any of these with the budget air purifiers. It would be a truly one-time investment with the lifetime warranty so I figured no harm getting the best out there. Side benefit: my husband's sleep apnea got much better after I had the air purifier running for a few weeks as well.2. Do ultraviolet air purifier/sanitizer's that install in your HVAC duct work. What is the best kind to buy.?Anita - it's not about purifying the passing air in a whole house HVAC, it's about keeping the coils in the A-coil free from mold with UVC light. In other words, an A-coil saturated with mold will give bad air by virtue of it's contamination; in some cases it's not a nice to have, it's a necessity to keep the house from odors and mold problems3. Acrylic nail help. will an air purifier work as a fume extractor? ?it should do but if it doesnt there are loads of things you can do to solve the problem. nsi actually have there own fuminator which is ment to be excellent but there pretty expencive. 1. get some high filtration masks, if you get headaches from using products, this will stop and slightly reduce the fumes, there available from coastalscents.com for around a dollar and they get cheaper the more you buy AND they alst quite a while. 2. there is an odourless acrylic monomer available but it as its drawbacks, yes, it doesnt smell but its not as strong as normal monomer and once you have applied your product and are really to file and shape, they have a roll-off layer which can be quite annoying to remove. nsi spa liquid is perfect and can be used with ANY other nsi or cnd powder (there products are almost the same) 3. get a dappen dish with a lid, this minimizes the amount of evaporation and therefore reduces the amound of fumes that are released. there about the same price as a normal one but sometimes they can be more expecive. 4. when you have your liquid in the dish (if the dish doesnt have a lid) get a pint glass and turn it over the dish so less fumes escape and keep it over the liquid unless you are using it. 5. get a table and place it right infromt of a window in your bedroom or somwhere in your house and when you are applying your own nails, have the window open so most of the fumes are ventilated out. if you carnt be assed with this, learn how to apply gel nails, gel is odourless! hope this helps ;D4.
