Air Purifier Systems and Service in Santa Fe, NM

Glorieta Creek Mechanical LLC - Air Purifier

The first step in finding a way to eliminate airborne contaminants from a home is to install mechanical filters. In some homes, a filter is sufficient to trap the pollutants that are affecting the quality of the indoor air. But filters will still miss many tiny particles, and if these are still an issue, the best route is to have an air purification system installed.

There are many types and sizes of air purifiers, and you you’ll need the assistance of indoor air quality specialists to locate the right ones to see to your needs. Our specialists at Glorieta Creek Mechanical LLC in Santa Fe have the experience and knowledge needed to handle this job, not to mention the high quality air purifiers on hand. You can trust that we’ll solve your indoor air quality issues so you and your family can enjoy superior comfort and health. We do our best to be a cut above the rest!

How Air Purifiers Work

There are a number of different models of air purifiers that use a variety of methods to clean the air. What they share in common is that they don’t "trap" particles in a filter of any kind. Instead, they use electronic discharges to draw the unwanted particles out of the air.

The most common type of air purifiers (a.k.a. air cleaners) use ionization to get rid of the air contaminants that can slip through standard filters. The purifier creates an electrical field inside the ductwork where the air from the HVAC system must pass. The field ionizes the large particles in the air—i.e. the one you don’t want in the air—so they pick up a negative or positive charge. A pair of metal plates on the air purifier then attracts these charged particles and collects them. It’s then a simple task to remove the plates and clean them.

What Kinds of Pollutants Do Air Purifiers Affect?

Air purifiers are effective against particles 0.1 microns in size or larger. (As a comparison, standard filters trap particles 0.3 microns or larger.) This makes air purifiers useful against gas and odor molecules. When an air purification system is properly installed and matched to the HVAC system, it will remove volatile organic compounds, such as formaldehyde, chemicals from pesticides and personal care products, harmful residue from cleaning solutions, smoke, carbon monoxide, and much more. Your installer will explain to you the purifier’s exact workings and what you can expect from it, as well as a regular schedule to clean it.
