Tis’ the season to allergies and the flu. Air purifiers are particularly useful to help lessen the effects of your employees health. Many businesses opt to utilize an air purifier in their building to keep their staff safe and healthy. Here are the top five types of air purifiers that we recommend you using in your facility.
- Ionic Air Purifiers
Ionizers (usually used alongside another filter) electrically charge molecules in the air to form ions. Once this process takes place, the particles attach to a grounded electrode, killing bacteria and viruses.
- Ultraviolet Air Purifiers
UV air purifiers function by killing viruses, bacteria, and pathogens with UV light exposure. Though they take more time to reach their maximum purification potential than others, their cleaning is very thorough.
- Electrostatic Air Purifiers
These purifiers work very similarly to ionic purifiers: they charge the particles in the air. After the particles are charged, the filter collects them. Because of this, the filtration plates should be replaced frequently.
- HEPA Air Purifiers
On a basic level, mechanical filters—like HEPA filters—push air through a very fine web of fibers that subsequently traps particles. They trap 99.97% of particles, including particles as small as smoke and paint pigment.
