Whole House Air Purifier Installation
When it comes to indoor air quality, every homeowner should be concerned. With the move toward more energy-efficient design, homes in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. have been built tighter, meaning houses are sealed more effectively. This has inadvertently led to more contaminated indoor air.
The increased popularity of double glass windows, emphasis on insulation, and pervasiveness of weatherstripping has led to a decrease in indoor and outdoor air exchange. When fresh outdoor air can’t flow into the home, you save money on utility bills, but increase the likelihood of stagnant and polluted indoor air.
To counter the unintended side effects of energy-efficient home improvements, consider installing a whole house air purifier system to improve indoor air quality.

What Is A Whole House Air Purifier System?
A whole house air purifier integrates into your existing HVAC system, taking the air that passed through your home’s ductwork and removing biological contaminants as air circulates through your central air system.
What Types Of Whole House Air Purifiers Are There?
The air is drawn through your home’s intake vents and passes through one of four types of high-performance air purifying systems: flat, extended media, electronic and ultraviolet. Each method is used to improve indoor air quality and increase the comfort of your home.
- Flat Filters: Your HVAC system already contributes to whole house air filtration. As your system circulates heated or cooled air, it forces the air through a thin filter. This filter is the least expensive method and is an easy way to quickly improve your indoor air quality. Flat filters require frequent changing, typically on a monthly basis, or else you’ll run the risk of overworking your furnace or air conditioner. If they become too clogged with dust and dander, it can decrease your energy efficiency. Homeowners can easily install and maintain this filter on their own.
- Extended Media Filters: These filters are more sophisticated than flat filters, requiring professional installation. Extended media filters can trap smaller, harmful particles and are changed on an annual basis.
- Electronic Filters: If you want to trap toxic particles, including secondhand smoke, then an electronic filter is a great fit for your home. The only requirement is a 120-volt electrical outlet and you’ll need to wash the aluminum collector plates every few months.
- Ultraviolet Filters: This type of air filter is designed to eliminate organic pollutants like mold, fungus, and bacteria. The UV light in the system kills germs and can specifically target small, biological contaminants. Hospitals usually install ultraviolet filters because they're excellent at zapping up germs, viruses, and bacteria.
Why Should I Install A Whole House Air Purifier For My HVAC System?
Americans spend approximately 90% of our time indoors, so we should be concerned about the air quality in which we eat, sleep, and play! Almost any home — and its occupants — can benefit from whole house air purification in their HVAC system.
There are numerous reasons to consider installing a whole house air purification system, but your health is the most important. Neither old nor new homes are exempt from the harmful, invisible pollutants floating in your air.
These harmful particles can lead to many problems including:
- Respiratory illnesses
