Beat Spring Allergies with Air Purification

Posted on May 20, 2014Rick Welter

Save Money on Minneapolis Heating Costs with Utility RebatesAchoo! It’s allergy season again in Minneapolis and many people are having a hard time finding medications strong enough to keep their allergy symptoms at bay. For those who can find no respite from seasonal allergies, we have good news: there’s a way to make your home a safe zone against allergies.

Those who suffer from seasonal allergies will be disappointed to learn that the air inside their homes is just as polluted with particles as the air outside. While some people believe that their furnace or air conditioner filters the air inside their home, the truth is that conventional filters are designed more to keep particles out of your HVAC machinery than to filter impurities from the air.

In fact, most air filters are not fine enough to trap the pollen, dander and spores that cause allergies. Home owners need to go one step further to keep their homes allergen free by investing in a Minneapolis air purification system.

What are Air Purifiers?

Air purifiers are used to remove contaminants from the air. They can be manufactured as small, stand-alone units or larger units that can be attached to your HVAC unit. Air purifiers remove dust, volatile organic compounds, dander, mold spores, smoke, dust mite feces and pollen from the air using high heat, UV light, exhaust systems or HEPA filters. There are several types of air purifiers, which are outlined below.

Air-To-Air Exchangers

Air-to-air exchangers actually ventilate your home by removing old, stale air and bringing in healthy, fresh air. Air-to-air exchangers can also help you regulate the temperature and humidity of your home using “energy recovery ventilators.” For instance, in the winter an air-to air exchanger will trap the heat from the air before ventilating it out of your home. This heat will be used to warm and humidify clean air entering your home in order to maintain an even temperature. In the summer, and air to air exchanger cools and dehumidifies clean air from outside before channeling it into your home.

Electronic Air Cleaners

Electronic air cleaners can remove up to 99.98% of allergens from the air in your home using HEPA filters and positively charged ions. They purify the air in your entire home by using a HEPA filter in conjunction with your heating at cooling systems. In essence, an electronic air cleaner ensures that the air that passes through your HVAC systems also pass through a HEPA filter that can trap particles as small as .3 microns. Any remaining impurities are then zapped by positively charged ions generated by the electronic air cleaner.

Central Air Cleaners

Central air cleaners purify the air in your entire home by connecting to your central heating and cooling systems. Central air cleaners work silently in the ductwork of your home to remove up to 99% of the most and pollen in your home, 98% of the dust in your home and 94% of the viruses in your home. Central air cleaners can greatly reduce the impact of allergies, asthma and viruses on your health. They also help extend the life of your heater and A/C by filtering out particles that might otherwise interfere with the equipment.
