When you’re looking for an easy way to make the air in your Oregon City home healthier, an air purifier is a wise choice. There are many types of air purifiers available, and they have a wide price range. Here are some tips on choosing an air purifier to get rid of the bacteria and viruses in your home.
Choose HEPA Filtration
High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration removes germs from your home and is a feature found in the best air purifiers. They capture particles that are 0.3 microns or smaller in size. This means that they are also able to capture pollen and mold spores that cause allergies, as well as bacteria and many viruses. If you’re concerned about COVID-19, a HEPA filter might help.
Consider an Activated Carbon Filter
Activated carbon filters capture 99.97% of indoor air pollutants. This type of filter will capture particles and odors from smoke, helping to keep your lungs clear. It also catches pet dander, bacteria, pollen, mold spores and large viruses. This type of filter doesn’t off-gas, and it’s easy to remove and replace.
Go Big With UV-C Irradiation
You may want to purify your home’s air in its entirety. In this case, a whole-house air purifier that uses UV-C irradiation could be the right choice for you. It works with your home’s heating and air conditioning system to sterilize the air before the heated or cooled air enters your home’s ducts. A UV-C air purifier takes care of bacteria, viruses, mold spores and pollen. They do not have any filters, so their maintenance needs are minimal. However, it’s best to have them serviced by an HVAC technician.
