Can I Use An Air Purifier Along With Air Conditioners?
The answer to this question is Yes! Yes! And Yes again. That’s because an air conditioner does NOT purify the air. When people hear about HVAC filters, they tend to think their air conditioner is purifying the air they are breathing. Technically that’s not correct. The filter connected to the air conditioner serves a very important purpose, but it’s only able to remove particulates in the air. A top-quality filter will do a better job, but no residential filter by itself is going to purify the air.
Air Purifier Vs Air Filter
The idea behind an air purifier is that it will remove much smaller particles than an air filter. Additionally, there are certain types of air purifiers that will actually kill molds, bacteria, and many viruses. This is how the purification process is different from the filtering process.
Why It Matters
Air purification is vital for those within high-risk groups, including:
- Asthma patients
- Suffer from COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)
- Have chronic & debilitating allergies
- The very young and the elderly
They all have a harder time dealing with the effects of poor indoor air quality. No air purifier can guarantee good health, but it will likely help you breathe more easily by reducing the number of irritants in the air.
