Top Air Purifier Myths

how is the air quality in your home?

Memorial Day Weekend is here, and that means it is almost summer time in Southern Connecticut. The weather is warming up, the flowers are blooming, and the pollen is in the air! Luckily, there are several ways to combat those nasty allergy symptoms. One of the best ways to keep your allergies at bay is with an air purifier. So if you are on the fence about adding an air purifier to your ventilation system, let us clear up some common myths:

They Don’t Work When Doors and Windows are Open

It’s the opposite! When fresh air is available, the purifier eliminates particles faster. Not only is it more efficient, but with the doors and windows open, you don’t have to keep the fan on high, meaning less noise.

It Removes all Odors

It honestly depends on the type of filter you have. HEPA filters will not remove smells as their primary purpose is to collect particles. If you are looking to get rid of a particular smell, you will need to look into combo filters. They target specific types of odors, such as tobacco smoke.

AC rooms Don’t Require Purifiers

An air conditioning unit on its own does not remove dust or pollen and can increase the issue. Using a ventilation system with your cooling unit will bring in fresh air while improving its overall quality.
