When you have increased illness, allergy symptoms, headaches, or other uncomfortable symptoms, you probably wonder where you may have caught a cold or which pollen is in season. Your first thought likely does not involve your home’s air quality, but pollutants trapped in your vents and circulating in your air could be the cause of discomfort. This is especially a concern for those particularly susceptible to poor air quality, such as children and older adults. Aire Serv of Suwanee has a solution: providing air purifier installation services across Duluth, Norcross, Peachtree Corners, Suwanee, Johns Creek, and beyond to help you breathe easier. An air purifier works by using an air filter, UV light, ionizer, or other similar system to eliminate contaminants, which you may not realize have an impact on your health. Our service professionals can help you understand the benefits of these systems and find the clean air solution that works best for you.

What is in My Air?
Even when you work hard to keep your home clean, contaminants can enter through open windows and doors or on objects you bring inside. Daily life functions can also cause unseen pollution, such as systems that burn fuel, including furnaces, especially when they need repairs, household cleaning products, building materials and furniture, excess humidity, and more. Common pollutants include:
- Dust and dust mites
- Seasonal pollen
- Pet fur and dander
- Mold and mildew
- Tobacco smoke
- Bacteria and Viruses
Benefits of Installing an Air Purifier
Adding an air purifier to your home is an easy way to help decrease poor air from external sources. It grants a variety of benefits, including:
- Elimination of unappealing odors
- Removal of dangerous Radon gas
- Decrease in allergy or asthma symptoms
- Better, healthier sleep
- Reduction of dust, dirt, mold, and pet dander
- Less chance of bacterial or viral illness
In addition, an air purifier can prolong the life of your heating or cooling systems. Air purifiers catch particles that may otherwise clog your system and increase daily wear and tear, leading to less frequent repairs. We also recommend regularly changing your HVAC system air filter to assist your purifier in catching those particles.

Types of Air Purifiers
Aire Serv of Suwanee is here to help you find the best air purifier system for your unique property. We can install whole-house purifiers, which help keep your entire HVAC system working smoothly. Additionally, we offer portable air purifiers for small spaces for supplemental cleaning of your air. Various types of air purifiers are available, the most commonly used include mechanical and electronic systems.
Mechanical Air Purifiers use an air filter to catch large particles such as dust or pollen. These filters can be made from polypropylene plastic to fiberglass, paper, cotton, carbon, and more. The amount of particles mechanical air purifiers catch depends on the mesh size. We recommend replacing air filters every couple of months for the best performance.
Electronic Air Purifiers can catch smaller pollutants such as smoke and gas. They work through ionization; the particles are charged and pulled from the clean airflow. These systems are designed for smaller particles and may not be efficient at removing contaminants such as dust.
There are a variety of unit types falling under the mechanical and electronic air purifier categories. Aire Serv of Suwanee recommends a combination of the following types of purification techniques:
HEPA Air Filters
HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters are thick and pleated filters capable of removing at least 99.97% of particles from your air in various sizes. They are capable of stopping viruses and bacteria alongside dust, pollen, and other larger particles. Certain HEPA air filters can also decrease or prevent odors.
Activated Carbon Filters
A layer of activated carbon, or charcoal, acts as the filter material for these air filters. The charcoal is porous, allowing it to absorb (or “stick to”) material that passes over it, including gas, VOCs, and larger particles. This process can neutralize odors as well. “Activated” carbon has been chemically altered to become more porous. Our experts recommend using activated carbon filters alongside additional filters, such as HEPA air filters.
Purifiers that use an ionizer work by releasing negative ions into the air. Those ions attract particles like a magnet, making the ion become charged. The charged ion carries the particles back through the cycle so they can pass through the filter and start the process again. The danger with these systems is they release ozone, which is dangerous to breathe, and thus can not run consistently.
UV air purifiers use ultraviolet light to target molecules and pass them through an air filter before exposing them to light which either destroys or transforms them. This technology is an excellent choice for removing smoke, odors, and harmful microorganisms. Like ionic purifiers, some UV technology can release harmful ozone. An Aire Serv of Suwanee service professional can help you select a UV air purifier that is designed not to release ozone.
Alongside air purification techniques, you can keep your home’s air in the best possible condition with additional contaminant reduction. Taking action to clean frequently, smoke outdoors, and introduce plants that filter air can significantly increase air cleanliness.
