If you suffer from allergies or asthma or just want cleaner, fresher air for you and your family, then an indoor air purification system is just what you need! Since 1886, John Hunter has continued to innovate new and smarter ways to clean, circulate and condition the air in your home. An air purifier is a device that cleanses and removes pollutants from your home environment. They are used to remove things like pet dander, pollen, dust mites, mold spores, and smoke particles which can cause breathing difficulties for people with asthma or allergies. The most common type of indoor air purification used to cleanse these surface contaminants includes HEPA filters, Ionic, and Photocatalytic Oxidation. There are many different types of pollutant removal technologies available, so it's essential that you do your research and trial out different types before deciding on a suitable purifier for you. All three work differently, but they all have their benefits depending on what your needs are.
HEPA stands for High-Efficiency-Particulate-Air, a type of filter used in air purifiers to trap and remove up to 99.97% of particles in the air while trapping allergens like mold spores, pollen, pet dander, and smoke, among other things. HEPA air purifiers are proven to be the most effective filters available and are great to use for anyone who has allergies. If you have any allergies, seasonal, pet, or chemical, then consider using a HEPA air purifier. These filters also remove
the particles that cause itching and sneezing caused by these allergens. Most HEPA air purifiers have an indicator light or gauge that tells you when the filter needs changing, so it's not something you need to worry about constantly. However, if your unit does not have this feature, ensure it has replaceable pre-filters for every season.
When choosing the type of air purifier that's best for your home, there are a few things to consider, such as how often do you want to replace filters or clean them? How much noise does the unit make, and will it disturb sleep or other activities in the room? What type of allergens are in the room that you want to purify? When shopping for a new unit, don't be afraid to ask questions to ensure you are receiving the best possible device for your needs. At Hunter, we’re obsessed with clean, fresh air. We test, and test, and test, each air purifier so you can be confident your air is the cleanest it can be.
These are often used as an air freshener, but they can also clear the air while you sleep. This type of unit does not have a filter to replace or clean as other types do. Instead, the ionizer is inside the machine and runs all day long, electrically charging particles in the room to stick on
the nearest surface. They also help deodorize the room through oxidation. This chemical reaction occurs when an atom or molecule loses one of its electrons after coming into contact with another atom or molecule and has more than eight electrons in its valence shell.
Photocatalytic Oxidation Air Purifier (PCO)
These units work by using ultraviolet light to break apart molecules, which are then filtered and given off as water vapor or carbon dioxide. This is a great option to have in your home if you suffer from allergies and chemical sensitivities because it can destroy odors caused by pets, cooking, cigarette smoke, and more, without any harmful chemicals being used at all! In addition, this means you don't need to replace carbon dioxide cartridges anymore as there aren't any additives or fragrances involved in using this technology.
