What are Air Purifiers?
Air pollutants hovering around in our indoor home air is 2-5 times greater than outdoor pollutants. With social distancing orders in place, we’re now spending even more of our time indoors. If your air quality is poor, remaining indoors for the majority of our time can lead to increased allergic reactions and other respiratory problems.
Air purifiers are able to help eliminate allergens and harmful radon gas in your home. It also has the ability to reduce CO2 levels and pungent odors. Learn more about air purification system advantages in our previous blog.
Air Knight and Dust Free® Air Purification Systems
While current air purification systems haven’t been tested or certified to help reduce the spread of SARS-CoV-2, we understand your home comfort is valuable to you and believe air purification systems can help promote good health. Argent Heating & Cooling offers Air Knight and Dust Free® Purification systems. Below, we have provided a few more details about the two systems:
Air Knight Air Purification Systems offer residents whole home filtration, purification, and maintenance, which can help reduce allergens that tend to circulate through your home. These air purification systems take advantage of ionic air scrubbers that neutralize pollutants active in the air as well as on hard surfaces. In regards to maintenance, Air Knight’s UV lights provide air filtration that successfully reduce contaminants around the clock.
Dust Free® was taken to several different labs and test results concluded that it successfully reduced all three pathogens: SARS-CoV-2, MS-2 Bacteriophage, and Staphylococcus Epidermidis.
Interestingly enough, COVID-19 patients that were placed in a room with Dust Free®’s air purifier had the pathogen removed from their masks. Compared to the opposite room that was left untreated, patients showed no improvements within the same amount of time.
As we consider that air purification systems haven’t officially been certified to rid the air of SARS-CoV-2, we can still rely on these systems to clear out most of the harmful pathogens that currently exist in our living spaces.
