Combat the Winter Flu & Summer Allergy Season

One of the more often overlooked aspects of HVAC is the V or ventilation. Everyone talks about heating and air conditioning but ventilation is an incredibly important part of indoor comfort and safety as well. When designing an HVAC system for your building, store, office or home, it’s important to not forget to include some serious thinking about the air purifier.

Importance of Air Purifiers

You might initially think that the addition of an air purifier to your ventilation system would be superfluous, but that would be a fairly dangerous line of thinking. Especially in the winter and the summer, it’s rare for people in a building to introduce fresh air to a building’s HVAC system on their own by opening doors or windows. After all, the weather tends to be on the extreme during those times of the year, especially here in Milford, Fairfield County, and the surrounding areas. As a result, the constantly recycled air can get dry and dusty, picking up particulates from the building itself and from the people who come in to and out of the building. Since people tend to close off the system even more than usual in spring and summer, it becomes increasingly difficult for that particulate matter, and the irritants that go along with it, to find their way outside of the HVAC system in a natural way.

Installing an air purifier is a foolproof money-saving strategy, especially for people running a business. But removing impurities from the air, you help combat both the winter flu season and all of those summer allergies and pollen issues—two big causes of sick days and drastically lowered productivity. Additionally, a number of air purifier systems also include ionization—this creates ozone or air with a negative ionic charge.

In some studies, negatively charged air has been shown to provide the following benefits:

  • Helps remove questionable odors from the air
  • Combat depression
  • Give workers an additional infusion of energy that they would not have otherwise had

Air Purifier Maintenance

In order to truly benefit from your air purifier, it is important that you have it maintained and cleaned on a regular basis—at least once or twice a year. After all, that particulate matter and all of those air irritants have to go somewhere. Unless the filtration system is cleaned and sent through diagnostic tests fairly regularly, it would be easy for your air purifier to get clogged and stop performing effectively.
