Air Purifiers

The air quality in your home can be a major concern. Here at C & C Heating & Air Conditioning, we understand how important it is that your indoor air is not only comfortable, but healthy and clean. The rise of full indoor comfort systems has ensured constant temperature control and year-round comfort, but it also means that our homes are more tightly sealed than ever. This, in turn, means that your home stays comfortable, keeping the winter's cold, the summer's heat, and the outdoor pollutants outside where they belong.

Unfortunately, that also means that anything that's in your home is going to be staying there. This can include a surprising amount of contaminants; allergens like mold and pollen, viruses and bacteria, dust and gases. You'll want to take this into consideration when choosing an air purifier as your sensitivity levels to different pollutants may mean you want a certain type of cleaner.

Determining Your Purifier Needs

Air purifiers come in many different models, and not all are equal. Different methods typically mean that each is better at targeting a different type of contaminant, and you'll want to choose one that is right for your situation.

  • Mechanical filtration purifiers, such as ones that use HEPA filters, target larger pollutants. This means that they're especially effective against contaminants with particles 0.3 micrometers or larger – pet dander, pollen, dust, mold spores, and other such pollutants. However, they're not as effective against smaller particles – smoke and other odors, and harmful gases. 
  • Ionization technology purifiers are more effective against smaller particles. By ionizing the air that passes through, they separate out the smaller particles, removing these gases and odors before they reach your living space. Due to the technology involved, however, this means that ionization is not as effective against larger particles, which may settle before they can be picked up by the device. Ionization devices also emit small quantities of ozone gas; it shouldn't be harmful in such small amounts, but it can worsen certain allergies and asthma symptoms. 

Can I Use Both?

Yes! The most effective air quality systems utilize a combination of filtration and ionization to clean the air. Using filtration to clean the larger particles and ionization to catch the smaller ones, a combination air purifier gets the job done to best improve your indoor air quality. Your air purifier can be installed separately, or you can even include it in your complete home heating and cooling system to provide the most comprehensive solution to all of your comfort and climate needs.
