7 Benefits of Internal HVAC Air Purifiers

Mar 29, 2021

Pollen season is officially here. If your allergies have started acting up, you may be considering an air purification system. It is important to note that not all air purifiers work to combat the effects of seasonal allergies. For example, UV-C filters work by killing live contaminants like mold, viruses, and bacteria. They are defenseless against pollen and allergens around your home (like dust, dander, and mold).

This is why Newcomb and Company installs iWave systems, which provide comprehensive air purification against viruses, bacteria, dust, pollen, smoke, dander, mold, and so much more. You can read more about iWave systems here. One additional advantage of these systems is that they are installed directly into your HVAC unit. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of in-unit air purifiers.

Benefit 1: Highly Effective Air Purification

As explained by the EPA, poor indoor air quality can have both long-term and immediate negative health impacts. The most important quality of any air purification system is its effectiveness. When your unit is installed within your HVAC system, you know it is effectively cleaning all of the air circulating throughout your home. Internal HVAC units are also often equipped with the latest air purification technology. This lets you access reliably clean air.

Benefit 2: Whole-Home Air Purification

Many home air purification systems only help the room that they are placed within. For example, if your air purifier is in the living room, it may not help you breathe cleaner air in your bedroom. This leaves you with 3 (less than ideal) options for your home:

  • Buy multiple units for whole-house air purification
  • Move your air purifier each time you change rooms
  • Live with limited air purification

When your air purifier is installed within your HVAC system, it will purify the air being distributed throughout every room of your home. In-unit systems provide comprehensive purification with a single, unmoving air purifier.

Benefit 3: Save Money on Air Filters

Most air purification systems require frequent filter changes, which can be both costly and inconvenient. Instead, HVAC installations like iWave use your home’s existing air filters. The process of bi-polar ionization causes particle agglomeration. In simpler terms, it causes small contaminants like dust and pollen to clump together. These particles are then large enough to be caught by your home’s air filters.

Benefit 4: Self-Cleaning Systems

Air purifiers often require ongoing system cleaning and maintenance. When these systems become dirty, they can become ineffective or even damaged. However, in-unit systems like iWave are self-cleaning. This means they require no ongoing maintenance. Best of all, self-cleaning features can help your unit last longer and stay effective.

Benefit 5: Out of Sight

Have you ever seen an air purifier brand boast about having a “sleek” or “modern” design? This is their way of suggesting these units will not distract from the aesthetics of your home. But what if—instead of worrying about your air purifier’s appearance—you didn’t have to see it at all? With an internal HVAC air purifier, you will breathe cleaner air without the eyesore.

Benefit 6: Space Advantages

Bulky air purifiers can take up some valuable countertop or floor space in your home. Especially for homes with limited disposable space, this can be a substantial inconvenience. You also must continuously dedicate a power outlet to this unit. When the air purifier is installed inside your HVAC system, it will not require ANY internal space within your home.

Benefit 7: No Noise

Running an air purifier in your home can create excessive noise. These systems often use a fan to force air through a thick filter and out of your air purifier. Quieter systems are available, but the cost often reflects this feature. When your air purifier is placed inside your HVAC unit, you will not need to worry about this noise invading your living spaces.
