The electronic air purifier
One of the choices you have for cleaner air is an electronic air purifier. A professional can integrate this device into you HVAC system, where it can remove some of tiniest particles of contamination that circulate through your ducts. Where standard air filters do well at stopping larger contaminants such as dust, dander, and pollen, for getting through, they have difficulty with gas and odor molecules. Electronic air purifiers, however, are excellent at eliminating these pollutants, such as smoke, pesticides, and household chemicals.
Here’s how an electronic air purifier performs its job: It create an electric field through a process called corona discharge that affects a section of the HVAC system that all air must pass through. This field ionizes particles in the air, which causes the larger ones—such as contaminants—to either gain or lose an electron. A particle that gains an electronic develops a negative charge; a particle that loses one develops a positive charge. These negatively and positively charged particles are now attracted down toward a set of plates on the purifier where they are trapped. A number of differently charged particles will also be attracted toward each other, clump together, and fall out of the air.
This process keeps your air clean and also doesn’t interfere with air flow. An air purifier can be combined with mechanical air filters for extra cleaning power: ask you indoor air quality professional about the best set-up for your needs.
