In Maryland, Winter is the Season for Air Purifiers

January 28, 2019

When it comes down to winter allergies vs. air purifiers, Maryland's HVAC experts can tell you who wins every time. (It's always the air purifier)

Air purifiers capture and kill airborne bacteria, mold spores, and viruses. For years, the team at MaxAir has worked to install, inspect, and repair enough of them to be recognized as true HVAC professionals. Through our experience, we can tell you everything there is to know about the appliances that give your home that at-home, comforting feeling.

Winter is the season when homeowners need to think about air purification the most. In the winter, when we light the fireplace, dust off winter clothing that’s been sitting in the attic all year, crank up the dust-filled heating system, and enjoy other favorite winter activities, we are actually damaging our indoor air quality.

In the winter, some homeowners tend to keep their windows and doors airtight to avoid cold air from coming in. While sealing-up keeps the home warm and cozy, fresh air is kept out, air circulation is cut off, and ventilation is reduced--resulting in higher exposure to dust mites and mold spores, that are commonly created by fireplace debris and gas heaters and furnaces. Pets also spend more time indoors throughout the winter, increasing the presence of pet dander in the air.

With the Performance model air purifier from Carrier, indoor air quality will no longer be a concern. This model was proven effective against three common pathogens including the common cold. The Performance air purifier works in-line with any HVAC system, taking out up to 75% of organisms as small as .30 micron with every wave of air that passes through it.

Air purifiers are very low-maintenance appliances, the only maintenance work homeowners need to worry about, is when to replace the air purification cartridge and inspect/brush clean the ionization array. An easy process that can save your household form breathing in harmful particles.

During Maryland's air purifier season, the team at MaxAir, takes pride in being known as Maryland's heating and cooling service professionals. We understand the importance of air purification, and when it matters the most. This winter we hope to keep informing homeowners about low air circulation, and the damage it does to their household's air quality.

With a well-maintained air purification system in your home, you're getting clean, pure air that reduces allergenic particles, leaving you and your family breathing high-quality air. To start off a healthy new year, free of winter allergies, make sure your air purifier is running at its top performance.

We are proud to provide all major brands of HVAC systems, and always provide customers with premium service. And if possible, we strive for same-day repairs.

Like anything worthwhile around your house, it requires preventative maintenance. We don’t always think about these little ‘updates’ around the house, like changing your water filters, smoke detector batteries, resealing the driveway or replacing the gaskets in your toilet tanks – sometimes it’s too late for preventative measures and you find yourself paying for something that was easily avoidable and far less expensive. HVAC systems are certainly no different – and they are a major component of any household.
