Air Purification Systems

The air quality in your home plays a vital role in keeping you and your family healthy. Homeowners have a variety of options when it comes to purifying the air inside their homes. Air purification systems are a highly efficient way to purify the air in both homes and buildings. For homeowners in Johnson County, Kansas looking for an air quality solution, look no further than an Air Scrubber Plus® from Cates Heating and Cooling. 

What Is an Air Purification System?

Air purification systems are a reliable option for ensuring homes have the highest quality of air possible and offer many of the same benefits of air purifiers. These systems filter the air from a room through the system to remove harmful contaminants as well as dust, pollen, and dander. Indoor air is often infested with harmful pollutants, such as particles, gases, chemicals, and VOCs. These pollutants can be harmful to your family’s health and trigger respiratory conditions like asthma. 

Air purification systems can remove these pollutants using a search and retrieval process. This type of system produces negative ions that circulate through the home’s ductwork system along with the air. These negative ions find positively charged particles, such as bacteria and VOCs. When the negative ions and positive particles combine, they create dense particles that fall from the air, landing on surfaces in the home. However, when the fan is turned on, it pulls particles through the air ducts, and these particles eventually stick to the air filter.  

Because air purification systems are so effective in removing air pollutants, they are often used on construction sites to remove common contaminants like mold, asbestos, lead, and other chemical fumes. They are also used in a variety of buildings and facilities. 

Benefits of Air Purification Systems

If contaminants are not removed from the air inside your home, they will seep into the furnishings, carpet, and HVAC system, which can be very harmful to your health. Naturally occurring particles like skin cells, animal hair, and air are usually always present in the air, and they will not pose significant risks to your health other than potentially triggering allergies. However, toxic gases and chemicals can have adverse, long-term effects on the health of humans when inhaled. These gases and chemicals can also cause headaches and migraines. Some bacteria and viruses, such as MRSA, E. coli, and C. Diff can also pollute the air you and your family breathe. 

Air purification systems can eliminate the presence of these dangerous contaminants in the air. As it purifies the air and reduces dust particles, air purification systems also control the odors in the home. 

Not only would an air purification systems prevent dangerous contaminants from causing health problems, but it also means that you and your family are breathing the cleanest and freshest air. Ensuring your home has high-quality air does even more for your health than eliminating pollutants in the air you breathe. Clean air also helps boost your immune system, allows you to sleep better, and enhances your overall health. All of these factors can put years on your life.
