Choosing an whole-house air purifier

When I first started looking into improving the indoor air quality of our home, I had no idea how many options are on the market.

There are dozens of manufacturers that put out a long list of whole-home air quality accessories, but most of these models are compatible with all styles of central heating and cooling system. They operate quietly, require only yearly service and positively impact the health and cleanliness of every cubic foot of air reached by the oil furnace and a/c. The decision was a bit overwhelming. Because the weather in our local section is boiling and humid in the summer, I knew a dehumidifier would be helpful. However, the people I was with and I deal with overly dry air in the winter, so a humidifier would also prove beneficial. The weather extremes make it necessary to seal up the thermal envelope to prevent energy waste. The elimination of natural ventilation traps allergens inside and can create a undoubtedly musty indoor environment. I considered a ventilation plan to introduce fresh air into the home without energy waste. However, after a lot of research, debate and consulting with an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C professional, I invested into an in-duct whole-house air purifier. The whole-house air purifier sends out positive and disadvantage ions that disrupt the DNA of pathogens and render them harmless. Plus, it causes particles such as dust and dander to clump together, making them easier to filter out. The whole-house air purifier is effective against smells, mold spores, bacteria, viruses, smoke particles and all sorts of contaminants. I no longer need to vacuum or dust as often… Cooking smells don’t linger as long. Even the air filters of the oil furnace and a/c don’t require replacement as often.
