When you are home or at the office, you want the air you are breathing to be of good quality. It is one thing to be outside because you have to accept the air quality you have no control over. Inside, however, it is a different story. There are ways to improve the indoor quality. One strategy is to utilize air purifiers.
Here are three ways air purifiers can improve indoor air quality, with a focus on the Guardian Air QR+.
1. Remove Air Pollutants from the Air
The purpose of an air purifier is to remove pollutants from the air. By capturing them and breaking them down, they are exiled. The result is purer air in a room. Pollutants that a purifier can remove include:
- Dust mites
- Second-hand smoke
The Guardian Air QR+ is an in-duct air purifier. It works in tandem with an existing air conditioning and heating system. Essentially, the QR+ reaches the same air as the heating and cooling system. Simply mount it on the unit. Tests have shown that it is effective at getting rid of bacteria, viruses, and VOCs as well as mold. Additionally, the product eliminates odors that result from cooking, pets, and smoke. It also helps a room to feel less musty.
Air purifiers work in two ways. They are either ionizers or use filters. Purifiers that use ionization or electrostatic precipitation are considered active. They use negatively charged ions that are released into the air. This causes pollutants to stick to surfaces.
Purifiers that use filters are considered to be passive. Even though calling them passive makes it sound like they are not continually working, filter purifiers eliminate pollutants. So, they are thought to be more efficient. Keep in mind that the Guardian Air QR+ is a purifier, not a filter.
