What Air Purifiers Do


The last year has brought up the topic of keeping the air in your home clean far more than ever. You may wonder how exactly you can “clean” the air in your home though. Some people use portable air filters or purifiers. We prefer a more encompassing solution.

If you haven’t already, now is a great time to consider the addition of a whole-home air purifier in Columbia, SC to your home. These systems are a great way to keep the air in your home much cleaner and they work to protect the entire home, rather than just one room.

Learn more about air purifiers here and contact us for installation when you are ready.

The Options for Air Purifiers

There is more than one type of whole-home air purification system out there. These include the electric purifier and the UV germicidal light purifier. As you can guess, these systems use different methods to accomplish the same goal: cleaning your air.

Electric air purifiers produce a charge that magnetizes airborne particles and attracts them to a metal plate. This allows particles to be captured and removed from the flow of air entering your home.

On the other hand, UV air purifiers utilize ultraviolet light to either destroy airborne particles or render them incapable of reproduction. This makes them a great option for preventing things like viruses or mold spores from wreaking havoc in your home.

Whole-Home Vs. Portable Purifiers

Why the emphasis on whole-home purifiers? Because they offer a level of protection that portable units simply can’t. Whole-home air purifiers are installed into your ductwork, rather than being plugged into an outlet in a certain room. This allows them to purify any and all air that is being pumped into your home rather than only cleaning the air in one or two areas.

The Perks of Purifiers

Let’s break down some of the key perks you’ll enjoy when you have one of our team members install a whole-home purifier for you:

  • No added space needed: Because they are installed into your ductwork, it means you won’t have to make space for these units somewhere else in your home.
  • No risk to your family: Whether you choose an electric or a UV system, you can rest assured that your purifier is safe and poses no risk to you.
  • They can help your health: Purifiers can tackle contaminants like viruses and bacteria. This means they can reduce the risk of illness and even respiratory issues in your home.
  • Improved indoor air quality: Fewer airborne particles in your home means better indoor air quality. That translates to better home comfort for you.

As you can see, air purifiers can be a great addition to any home that needs some extra help keeping the air clean. Make sure that you schedule your system installation with the professionals at Fulmer Heating & Cooling to ensure the job is done right.
