Benefits of an in-duct air purifier

Ever since the covid pandemic, I’ve become more aware and concerned about indoor air quality.

  • I now realize that there are sources of contaminants in every room in the house.

Cooking, cleaning, showering, pesticides and pets contribute to the problem. Excess humidity, overly dry air and lack of ventilation worsen issues. With the weather extremes in my local area, it’s necessary to keep the house sealed tight to prevent drafts and energy waste. With no fresh air coming in, pollutants become trapped inside the house. If my family breathes in mold spores, bacteria, viruses, dust, dander, VOCs and other toxins, they are at risk of headaches, nausea, respiratory infection, fatigue, sore throat, congestion and more. Although I make sure to regularly replace the air filters in the air conditioner and furnace and schedule professional maintenance twice per year, it’s not enough. After researching indoor air quality accessories and asking my local HVAC contractor for a recommendation, I decided to invest into an in-duct air purifier. The unit captures pollutants as air flows through the ductwork. It also emits positive and negative ions that kill pathogens and causes particles to clump together and fall out of the air. The air purifier operates 24/7, makes no noise and improves the cleanliness and health of the entire home. It requires only annual services and gives me confidence that I’ve created a safe living environment for my family. I’ve noticed that I don’t need to vacuum or dust as often. There is less debris caught in the heating and cooling system’s air filters.
