Why Choose an In-Duct Air Purification System Over a Portable Unit?
Installing an air purification system will greatly reduce the amount of harmful airborne contaminants in your home. This is particularly of benefit to those who suffer from allergies or asthma. There are two main types of air purification systems to choose from: in-duct air purifiers and portable units. Read on to learn why you should choose an in-duct air purification system for your home in Summerfield, Florida.
What is an In-Duct Air Purification System?
An in-duct air purifier installs directly into the air duct path. A professional can install it either before or after the air handler in homes with a central HVAC unit. This type of purifier is usually referred to as a whole-home air purifier because it can provide whole-home air filtration.
A notable aspect about in-duct air purification systems is that they can kill up to 99 percent of airborne contaminants throughout your entire home. Additionally, due to their installation method, they don’t take away any of your living space. In-duct air purifiers operate quietly, and they significantly reduce aggravating allergens such as dust, dirt and pollen. As a result, they can help you sleep better.
What is a Portable Air Purification Unit?
A portable air purification system only filters the air in one room of your home. You must move it if you want it to clean the air in other parts of the house. These air purifiers are often noisy, and some can produce small amounts of harmful ozone that can irritate your lungs.
Choose the Best Air Purifier for Your Home
If your home doesn’t have a central HVAC system, you may have no choice but to use a portable air purifier. However, this isn’t always the case. Some ductless HVAC systems are compatible with ductless air purification systems that mount directly onto the system’s indoor units with adhesive tape. Therefore, there’s no excuse for not having an air purifier in your home to clean the air.
