Commercial Air Purifier Services in Portland, OR

The air in your building may look clear, but it’s actually full of millions and millions of microscopic particles. Some of these particles are harmless, but others are not. For example, contaminants like dust, pollen, viruses, bacteria and mold spores can cause a wide range of health problems if inhaled in large doses or over a long period of time. Allergy attacks, flu and cold symptoms, and even more serious conditions like asthma are all possible results of exposure to airborne contaminants. If you want to protect yourself from these contaminants, you should take advantage of our commercial air purifier services.

Why Commercial Air Purifiers are Necessary

Homes have airborne contaminant issues just as much as commercial buildings. However, commercial buildings tend to have a harder time getting rid of contaminants without an air purifier. This is because, while homes can always open doors and windows to help blow out stale and contaminant–infested air, commercial buildings are designed to be much more airtight. This is to help maintain climate control, but it has the unintentional side effect of trapping contaminants in the building. This leads to increased buildup, which means more chances for negative effects. You should definitely have a commercial air purifier installed in your building, in order to address this problem.

Types of Commercial Air Purifiers

There are a huge number of different air purifier systems on the market today, far too many to enumerate here. However, we can go over a few of the more common ones just for some general information.

  • Ionization Purifiers: These purifiers release electromagnetically charged particles around themselves during operation. As contaminants come into contact with these particles, they gain a magnetic charge of their own. They are then attracted to metal plates inside the purifier, where they stick until the plates can be removed and wiped clean.
  • UV Air Purifiers: Many different kinds of living infectious organisms, like viruses, bacteria and mold, cannot survive exposure to high amounts of ultraviolet light. A UV air purifier is essentially a large light bulb that sits in your building’s ducts and bathes them in ultraviolet radiation. This isn’t strong enough to harm humans, but any germs or other infectious agents that come into contact with it will be sterilized or destroyed.

Which purifier you have installed should depend on the recommendation of an industry professional. If you’d like to consult with one about which air purifier would work best for you, give us a call.

We Install, Repair and Maintain Commercial Air Purifiers

Installing air purifiers involves gaining access to the building’s ducts, as well as extensive electrical work. We do not recommend that this ever be done, save by a professional. It can be quite dangerous to install your own system if you don’t know exactly what you’re doing, which is why we offer full air purifier installation services.

Commercial air purifiers also require the occasional repair and maintenance services. Be sure to schedule air purifier maintenance at least once a year to keep your system in good condition. If you have reason to suspect that your air purifier needs repairs, call Western Heating & Cooling and we’ll take care of it for you.
