Guide to Selecting a High Quality Air Filtration Unit
They come from a variety of technologies. Every air purification system offers a set of strengths and user-benefits. They also come hindered with certain weaknesses. Pay attention as you learn how to best combine air purification technologies.
The goal: Pull together the advantages; eliminate the disadvantages.
Air Filters – The Starting Point
This is your default air purifier. A typical high-quality air filter will remove contaminates as small as 0.3 microns. The strengths of a high-quality air filter system include:
Removes some bacteria
Removes most dust, mold spores and other allergens
Captures most solid particles.
Has no effect on gases, chemical fumes or smoke odors
Cannot capture germs, viruses or other ultra-fine contaminates
Limited range of effectiveness
May enable breeding of micro-organisms.
Ways to Strengthen Basic Filtration
When selecting a high-quality air purification unit, consider these technologies that work with, enhance and compliment basic filtration methods.
Air Ionizer Systems – Designed to change the polarity of airborne particles, air ionizers create negative ions which cause a magnetic bonding of the affected airborne particles. As a result, even ultra-fine particles become too heavy to remain airborne.
Removes particles up to 0.01 microns
Neutralizes bacteria, chemical fumes, cigarette smoke and viruses
Extended range of effect.
No collection method
Fails to remove odors
Captures but does not kill germs, fungi and some viruses
Limited effect on airborne chemical particles.
Activated Carbon Air Filter Systems – Use highly adsorbent, molecular size pores to create a chemical bond that traps gases, liquid contaminates and other odorous particles.
Most technologically advanced filter for capturing odors
Retains captured contaminates
Poor performance against dust and other common allergens
Ineffective against micro-organisms
Limited range of effect.
Other Methods – Include: 1) Germicidal UV Lamps designed to destroy bacteria, germs, fungi and viruses; 2) Highly reactive oxidant Ozone Generators designed to destroy bacteria and chemical related odors.
