Do Air Purifiers Work?


Are you asking yourself, “Are air purifiers effective?” You’re not alone. To cut to the chase, yes, most air purifiers perform their advertised functions to varying degrees of effectiveness. But you may also ask, “which air purification system works best for my  home, family, and budget?” It’s not as complicated as you think.

Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality
Your indoor air quality directly impacts your health. According to the EPA, indoor air is five times more contaminated than outside air. Yet, we spend 90% of our time inside. Poor indoor air quality contributes to increased eye, nose, and throat irritation, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, respiratory illness, heart disease, and cancer. 

Air purification systems are crucial in maintaining indoor air quality, especially for pet owners, smokers, and people with respiratory problems. Studies show that purifying indoor air can improve overall health and well-being, such as sleep, cognitive ability, and productivity. 

Portable Air Purifier vs. HVAC Air Purifier
Most of the air purifiers you’ll see on a quick Google search are portable. Portable air purifiers work well for smaller rooms and offer the convenience of moving around as needed. However, portable air purifiers are not viable for whole-house air purification.

Comparatively, a whole-house HVAC air purification system is more cost-effective and delivers air purifying action to your home, not just one small room. Plus, by eliminating contaminants and purifying the air that travels through your home’s HVAC system, whole-house air purification systems help your HVAC system last longer.

HVAC Air Purification Systems

A whole-house air purifier is undoubtedly worth the investment for people with allergies, asthma, and other respiratory conditions. The HVAC-ready air purification systems help remove antagonistic air pollutants, resulting in less frequent and less intense respiratory symptoms for those in the home.

A leading HVAC air purification system among Chancey & Reynolds customers is the Plasma Air unit. This air purifier is silent, filterless, and self-cleaning. The Plasma Air purification system fits seamlessly into your home’s existing HVAC system for continuous, whole-home purification. Plasma Air products use bipolar ionization technology, which produces oxygenion molecules, essentially nature’s cleaning process. These oxygenions are circulated throughout the home via the ductwork system, inactivating and reducing airborne pathogens and pollutants.
