What is an Air Purifier & what can it do for me?
Over 99% of the particles contaminating indoor air can’t be seen without a microscope. Much of this pollution is airborne biological matter. Airborne biological matter includes living organisms, such as, molds, mildews, spores, bacteria and viruses, or parts of once-living organism such as pet dander, skin flakes, dust mite droppings and carcasses.
Ultraviolet light at a specific band of wavelengths and above a minimum intensity level will kill many biological contaminants. Since some odors are associated with these biologicals, odors are reduced. Allergy symptoms are relieved. The units consist of lamps, similar in appearance to fluorescent tubes and are inserted in the air return air ducts of the central system in front of a high efficiency filter.
