Allergies are no joke, and finding the best way to deal with them can seem like an overwhelming task. Drugs, home remedies, deep cleaning, and more are all solid options to help mitigate the effects of the airborne irritants, but one of the most effective ways to keep pollen and other substances from entering your home in the first place is to install an air purifier or air filter. These units can remove a majority of the air particles from the room they’re installed in, helping keep your home clear after you sweep and vacuum it.
Different types of air filters you can use include:
Ionizing filters: These filters use a carbon brush or high-voltage wire to clear the air of particles. The negative ions in the filter attract the particles, drawing them into the filter and out of the air.
High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA): These units are fitted with fibrous filters that catch and trap particles as air passes through.
HVAC Air Cleaners: These types of filters aren’t portable, and are part of your home’s HVAC unit. There are a number of different filters you can use for this, and our technicians can walk you through your different options.
Activated carbon filters: These units are designed to remove smoke, smells, and odors from the air as they pass through.
Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI): UV light can kill microbes present in mold and other potential hazards, deactivating them and rendering them inert. While these types of filters won’t remove the physical objects from the air, they will protect you from the ill-effects of the particles.
