The quality of the air we breathe is an important thing. Many people worry more and more about how the changes made in civilization have affected air quality, and how it will affect future generations.

Whole House Air Purification Systems
An air purifier is a device that cleanses the air in your home of pollutants. You can purchase stand-alone units, but air purifiers for the whole house are usually installed directly into the HVAC duct system. The contaminants and allergens that can cause allergies, headaches, dry eyes and illness symptoms are filtered in this system, while pure air passes through into your home.
There are different types of these air purifiers and they perform on different levels. A standard, flat filter is made of fiberglass. It will capture dust and similar things in the air, needs to be changed once per month. It will not block other, microscopic pollutants, however. Electronic filters use an electrical charge to attract particles from the air. They perform much better at capturing more pollutants than the flat filter. Extended media filters also use an electrostatic charge to capture particles and can attract even microscopic ones. UV filters are very effective at capturing dust and much smaller particles, like viruses, bacteria, and more.
