Whether you’re a newcomer or a longtime resident of Daphne, Alabama, you’re bound to experience air quality issues in your home from time to time. If your HVAC system struggles to manage airborne contaminants like dust mites, pet dander, or even microscopic bacteria, an air purifier can provide the relief you need.

How Air Purifiers Work

As a very effective air cleaner, air purifiers are responsible for filtering out a range of pollutants in your home’s air supply. They rely on high-quality air filters with high minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV) ratings to substantially improve indoor air quality. Many models specialize in capturing germs, pollen, and mold to make the air clean and easy to breathe.

How They Outperform Air Filters

All HVAC systems need air filters to keep dirt and dust away, and most of these have replaceable components that trap other airborne contaminants. Air purifiers go above and beyond regular air filters. Some models, like the Infinity Air Purifier GAPA, are capable of eliminating up to 95 percent of the pathogens as small as .30 micron in size. They emit an electrical charge that kills germs and bacteria upon contact. Since the system can process up to eight air cycles per hour, you can rely on it to purify your home’s air supply constantly. Tobacco smoke and viruses don’t stand a chance.

How They Work With Your HVAC System

You’ll find several portable air cleaners on the market, but at Keith Air Conditioning, we recommend air purifiers that work with your existing HVAC system. These whole-home air purifiers stay in one place and filter airborne contaminants each time your HVAC system cycles air in your home. They filter the air supply throughout every room in your home instead of focusing on single rooms or isolated areas.
